You knew this was forthcoming, right? A Pumpkin Apple No Bake Dessert Lush? I’m addicted to these desserts…so it was only a matter of time.

Can we talk about yoga pants for a minute? First of all, I’m totally pro-yoga pant. Between running a dessert blog and working at home where no one sees me, I’d be hard pressed to put anything else on.

But there is one thing I’d like to know about yoga-pants wearing. This might be a little TMI, but whatever. It’s my blog and I’ll go there if I want too. Let’s just get real for a minute: when did going commando become a thing? Because, like, it’s not a thing with me. At all. And it never will be. Forever and ever I will wear underpants, the end.

The reason I ask is that I feel like I’m in the minority on this. Yes? Here’s the thing: I’ll happily walk around town in my panty-line-showing yoga pants (forever and ever, amen) as opposed to the alternative. That alternative being going commando and everyone knows about it. Because, dudettes, yoga pants are see-through when they are not jet black and super thick. Especially when you’re wearing a size too small.

Especially then. #OhMyEyesWillNeverBeTheSame

And, I mean, this convo is especially important right now. Fall is upon us (rather, it’s upon those of you who don’t live in Hotifornia) and the yoga pant wearers will be out in force. Especially if you start doing all the fall baking you’ve been dreaming about all summer.

PSA: please don’t go commando, unless, you know, there is reinforcement. And don’t mock me for my lines. I’m proud of my lines.

Speaking of fall baking…let’s talk about NO BAKE dessert lush! See, you can still make no bake desserts even though it’s not summer. And you must make them with pumpkin and apple.

Pumpkin Apple No Bake Dessert Recipe

This dessert is a riff on two I’ve made over the past few years. Last year I made a No Bake Pumpkin Dessert which was thebombdotcom with it’s pretzel crust and chocolate shavings. The year before that I made a Pumpkin Apple Dump Cake which went over like gangbusters. Marry the two and what have you got?

Pumpkin Apple No Bake Dessert Lush! #YoureWelcome

This dessert has four fabulous fall-licious layers:

  1. The crust is made of cinnamon graham crackers. You guys, why do I always forget those exist?
  2. The pumpkin layer is made of pumpkin puree, pumpkin pie spice, and vanilla pudding. It’s like pumpkin pudding!
  3. Throw a can of apple pie filling on top of that and then…
  4. Top it all with some fresh whipped cream or whipped topping and more cinnamon graham crackers.

This recipe is fall in a bite. Great for when it’s still hot outside or for when you want to throw together a no bake pumpkin pie that’s not just pumpkin pie.

Yield 8 -10 servings
Serving Size


  • 9 Cinnamon Graham Cracker Sheets
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter melted
  • 1 box 3.4 ounces INSTANT vanilla pudding mix
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 can approximately 20 ounces apple pie filling
  • 1 1/2 cups Cool Whip or freshly whipped cream


  • Finely crush 6 graham cracker sheets by placing them in a gallon size ziploc bag and rolling over it with a rolling pin (seal the bag all but 1/2” to allow air to escape). This nets approximately 1 cup of graham cracker crumbs. Place in a large bowl and stir in brown sugar. Stir in melted butter with a fork, then press into the bottom of a 9x9 inch square pan. Chill until filling is ready.
  • Wipe out the bowl you made the crust in. Place pudding mix, milk, pumpkin, and pumpkin pie spice in a the bowl. Whisk until smooth. Pour carefully over crust, spreading it evenly.
  • Evenly spread apple pie filling over the pumpkin layer. Top evenly with whipped cream or Cool Whip. Crush remaining graham crackers into chunky pieces and sprinkle over the top.
  • Chill dessert for at least 3 hours before serving, but overnight is best. Store covered in refrigerator for up to 3 days.

  1. when we were young, the yoga pants of today were called tights. We were them under skirts and dresses,lol. I’m amazed at the women wearing this fashion statement. Also has anyone noticed that toilet paper commercial that tries to convince us all to go commando? What’s up with that? Looking forward to all your pumpkin recipes!

    1. Even with yoga pants I like to have my bottom covered. And I’ve seen that commercial. I always feel like this when I see it: ?

  2. Everyone has lost respect for undergarments, really, commando and these thongs – blah. Nothing wrong with needing the support of a real pair of underwear, especially under a dress. ☺️Dessert looks great.

  3. HAHA yes to everything in this post (and NO to yoga-pants-commando!)  This dessert though…omg…I need this now (I will probably have to put on my yoga pants shortly after..)

    1. I always make a habit of reading the blog entry that goes with a recipe before I make it and yours made me laugh hard. I’m in my 20s and I love yoga pants but I try to keep wearing them to a minimum when I’m out. I honestly had no idea going commando in them was a thing. I have no idea why it never occurred me people did that. And yeah I 100% agree with you, never happening over here either.

      On a side note though, I can’t wait to give this a try. I’ve had a can of apple pie filing for a few months and wanted something different to use it for. One question, I only have 8×8, 11×8 and 13×9 pans. Based on the amount of apple pie filing, do you think the 11 pan would work best? I can always add a little more cool whip and graham crackers as needed. I probably have the slightly larger vanilla pudding too I could use instead. I’ll let you know how it goes!

  4. Um, no way to commando. That is a fashion faux pas. However, I think some gals wear the, uh, skimpier undies when wearing skin tight yoga pants if you know what I mean. However, I’ve definitely seen my fair share of commando booty. Eeek.

    This pumpkin apple business needs to happen to my face! 

  5. I could never imagine going commando, especially in yoga pants. Of course, I’m from Minnesota and if you went out in just yoga pants and there was a cold breeze, it would be a COLD breeze, you know? ? This recipe looks great. I’m so ready for fall flavors, and I love the crumbly graham crackers.

  6. When thongs first became a huge deal and people started wearing them in ways that it was obvious, I said I would rather have panty lines and I’m sticking to that. I try to get smooth panties that don’t look obvious under light pants but either way, still better than commando! Ugh. Anyhow, am going to make this dessert the next time I use up my soft apples by making “fried” apples (not really fried) so that I can avoid the canned apples but this still sounds AWESOME!

  7. Going commando will forever remind me of that Friends episode. Happy thoughts! Also? This dessert combo is absolutely the best of both worlds and what Fall is all about!

  8. Oh, my word! I had no idea that was a thing.  Never in a million years would that happen with me.  Got lines here!  LOL!  Now I’m sure I will notice it on every yoga pant wearing person…my eyes are never going to be the same.  Love that you combined the two fall flavors into one awesome no bake!  Perfect for this crazy hot spell here!
