Skinny peanut butter and chocolate cheesecakes


My guilty pleasure just got a little less guilty and whole lot more pleasurable! These little suckers are super low calorie (only 110 calories each!!) but taste like they could be made with all full fat ingredients!

This recipe is so versatile too! If you don’t like peanut butter, you can definitely substitute lemon juice or melted chocolate (or whatever!!) to make it to your liking.

11 chocolate wafer cookies, crushed
8 oz 1/3 less fat cream cheese
6 oz non-fat Greek yogurt (I used plain, but vanilla will work too)
1/4 cup sugar (I used Truvia, but any sugar you like will be fine)
1 tsp vanilla
1 egg
1 Tbl flour
3 Tbl PB2 (if you can’t find this, regular peanut butter will work – just use 2 Tbl)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Line a cupcake pan with cupcake liners and add 1 Tablespoon of the crushed cookies to each cupcake liner. With a spoon or your fingers, pack crumbs down to form a crust.

In a bowl, mix together cream cheese and sugar with an electric mixer until smooth. Add in yogurt, vanilla and egg and blend until combined. Mix in flour and PB2 just until combined. Be careful not to over mix at this point. Spoon mixture into cupcake pan. Bake for 25 minutes. Remove from the oven and allow to cool. Refrigerate for a few hours.
