Making honey yogurt cheesecake bars

I promised a separate post of the honey yogurt cheesecake bars I made for my birthday dinner last Saturday, and here it is. In case you were too lazy busy to click the link to my previous post, I’ll mention again that I used this recipe (and Ashley, again, you are a genius!). They were a great success at my dinner party and I’m going to admit that I had a few too many the day after. The leftovers didn’t last long! :)

So cheesecake, at least to me, sounded like an intimidating project but I was really craving it and decided to take on this challenge. Apparently, making cheesecake is a piece of cake. Ha, I didn’t even mean to make this pun :D So here are some progress pics, to give you a little courage to make your own cheesecake. This recipe is a really good one… and it’s healthy too!

All the ingredients:

all cheesecake ingredients

Make some graham cracker crumbs (I used about 7 cracker sheets to make 1 cup of crumbs)…

Combine crumbs with oil and honey (+ cinnamon if you want – I didn’t use any)…

Than bake for 8 minutes. Yummy crust, great start :)

The filling… mix cream cheese, honey and maple syrup (I used 2T honey, 2T maple syrup instead of 1/2 c honey in the recipe). *Make sure the cream cheese is at room temperature – it makes it easier to beat*

Beat 1 egg + 1 egg white into the mixture until well blended…

I was getting excited when I saw the pretty whisk peaks :D

The whole recipe (based on the ingredients I used) is 2,315 calories. I cut this into approx. 10 bars of a decent size.  This cheesecake was so incredibly creamy and rich and oh…. I seriously can’t get it out of my mind. I keep craving the stuff! There may be more cheesecake in my life in the very near future ;) I highly, highly recomend this recipe!
