- Once flax egg is thickened, add to the large bowl and stir.
- Transfer to an 8×8 baking dish or multiple smaller dishes if desired.

This recipe stores well in the fridge. You can make this the night before and simply reheat in the morning for a quick breakfast! It will last in the fridge for about 3 days.
For DIY pumpkin pie spice, combine 4 tsp cinnamon, 2 tsp ground ginger, 1 tsp cloves, 1/2 tsp nutmeg and use 1 1/2 total tsp for this recipe.
If you do not have ground flax seeds, you can use a regular egg or use ground chia seeds instead.
Make sure you use a PLAIN cream cheese, not flavored!
Depending on which cream cheese you use, you may need to add a tablespoon or so of water to help it whisk together.
