. no-bake chocolate cheesecake bites .

A refreshing, no-bake dessert that’s perfect for summer, these tangy little cheesecake bites are neither overly sweet nor mind-numbingly rich, but will always hit the spot.

Ingredients (makes 10 muffin sized bites)

For the crust:

  • ¼ cup cocoa powder
  • ½ cup almond meal
  • ¾ cup rolled oats
  • ¼ cup honey
  • pinch of salt

For the filling:

  • 1 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 8 oz. package of cream cheese, at room temperature
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 1 tsp. vanilla

Directions

For the crust:

  1. Combine cocoa powder, almond meal, and oats in a food processor and pulse until well combined.
  2. Add honey and salt and continue to pulse until thoroughly combined.
  3. Using a tablespoon, divide mixture evenly among 10 silicone baking cups. Firmly press it down until it becomes compact and holds together in the bottom of the baking cups.
  4. Cover and refrigerate for ~ 1 hour, until set.

For the filling:

  1. Using a blender or electric mixer, beat cream cheese until smooth. Add sugar and vanilla, and continue beating. Finally, add yogurt and beat until the mixture is smooth and fully combined.
  2. Spoon cheese mixture into prepared cups, filling almost to the top. Place into a muffin tin and freeze for at least 4 – 5 hours, until firm to the touch.
  3. Prior to serving, remove from the freezer, peel away silicone lining, and allow them to soften up for ~15 minutes. Garnish with toppings of choice.

    Trying these for sure! Do you think it is worth trying to make them with low-fat cream cheese or just take the hit and go for the real deal?

      They’re delicious with lower fat cream cheese, but I expect that they would be even better with the real deal :) The only reason I make them with reduced fat cream cheese is because that’s the only organic option available at my stores, and I enjoy the taste of it.
