Tangy and creamy freshly squeezed lime cheesecake sitting on a cinnamon oat crust.
Serves: 24 Mini Cheesecakes
Ingredients
  • For base:
  • ¾ cup oat flour
  • ⅓ cups oatmeal (not quick oats)
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • ½ tsp kosher salt
  • ⅓ cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 Tbsp pure maple syrup
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • **For topping**
  • 8 oz cream cheese, ⅓ less fat, at room temperature
  • 3 tsp. stevia or ¼ cup sugar
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg, at room temperature
  • 1 cup greek yogurt, plain
  • ¼ cup lime juice (2 limes)
  • zest of one lime
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 275F
  2. Line a mini muffin pan with 24 muffin liners
  3. Base: In a bowl add oat flour,oats, baking powder, cinnamon and salt into large bowl, Stir until combined. Add in the applesauce, maple syrup and vanilla; mix well. Scoop about 1 heaping teaspoon of batter evenly into each muffin cup and push down firmly with fingers to smooth out. I found that wetting your fingers makes the base not stick to them.
  4. Topping: In a small bowl add cream cheese and sugar; beat until creamy. Add vanilla extract, egg and salt; beat until combined. Beat in yogurt and lime juice; until creamy. Fold in lime zest.
  5. Evenly pour cheesecake batter into muffin cups. NOTE: You will have leftover batter.
  6. Bake, rotating pans halfway through, until filling is set, 15 minutes. Let cool on a wire rack. Chill in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours, or up to overnight, before serving.
Notes
Calories will be a less then what I give you, as I had a pinch of crust base left over and enough cheesecake batter to make 3 standard muffin cups without base. So you don't waste the batter, I filled 3 standard muffin pans with batter and cooked the same way as mentioned in the recipe, but cooked the cheesecakes for 20 minutes.
