Ingredients

  • Low Fat Cream Cheese- 16 ounces that is two 8 ounce packages. This should be softened at room temperature.
  • Greek Yogurt- 2 cups. Plain 2% works well. Feel free to sub in sour cream for part or all of the yogurt.
  • Honey- ⅓ cup. Alternatives to this include ½ cup of sugar or sugar alternative that is equivalent to ½ cup of sugar and that can also be baked with.
  • Eggs- 2.
  • Flour- 2 tablespoons.
  • Vanilla Extract- 2 teaspoons.
  • Optional- crust. As mentioned above to make a quick crust simply crush 8-9 graham crackers and blend it with two tablespoons of melted butter (add a bit of water as needed if dry). Then press this into your pan and bake until browned (350 8-10 minutes). Allow this to cool before adding the remaining ingredients.

  • Bake this cheesecake in a prepped springform pan (with or without the crust as desired) and bake for 50-55 minutes or until the edges begin to brown. The center will not be fully set.
  • Allow the cheesecake to cool on a rack and then transfer it to a refrigerator to cool overnight (it will allow the cheesecake to become firm).
  • Remove the ring from the pan just before serving the cake.

Recipe Notes

I mentioned that this recipe substitutes regular full fat cream cheese with a lower fat version and Greek yogurt. Also, I mentioned a few other alternatives that you could try however, I have not tried these and do not know how they would fair in a baked cheesecake.
Also mentioned is that you can make an easy and simple crust for this cheesecake,.
To make a quick crust simply crush 8-9 graham crackers and blend it with two tablespoons of melted butter (add a bit of water as needed if dry). Then press this into your pan and bake until browned (350 8-10 minutes). Allow this to cool before adding the remaining ingredients.
