Description

These healthier mini blueberry cheesecakes are about to be your new favorite luscious dessert! “Lightened up” with a greek yogurt and less sugar than your traditional recipes, but trust me, you would never know.


Ingredients

Scale

For the Crust:

For the Filling:

  • 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 5.3 ounce container vanilla or honey green yogurt
  • 1/4 cup cane sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg, room temperature
  • 1 egg white, room temperature
  • 9 tsp blueberry jam (1 tsp per mini cheesecake)

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 325ºF and line a muffin pan with 9 cupcake liners.
  2. For the crust: In a food processor, blend your crackers or cookies into fine crumbs. Transfer crumbs to a small bowl and stir in melted butter until fully combined. Evenly distribute the batter between the 9 cups, pressing with your fingers or a spoon to flatten. Bake for about 8 minutes. Let cool for at least 10 minutes while you make your filling.
  3. For the filling: Using an electric mixer, beat the cream cheese until light and fluffy, about 1 minute (don’t over-beat). Add in the yogurt, sugar, and vanilla and beat on medium-high speed until smooth, about another minute. Turn the mixer to medium-low and add in the egg and egg white one at a time. Scrap down sides of bowl to make sure everything is fully combined (but again, don’t over-beat).
  4. Evenly distribute the batter on top of the 9 crusts. Then using a toothpick, swirl 1 tsp of jam into each of the cup’s batter. Bake for 20 minutes, or until the middle is set.
  5. Allow the pan to cool to room temperature, then let chill in the fridge  for 2 hours before serving.

Notes

  1. USE ROOM TEMP CREAM CHEESE. Cold ingredients require longer mixing and longer mixing adds too much air to the batter which will leave you with a sunken center.
