Ever Evolving Food Blog

Hello Everyone! I have had this blog for years now, and as my personal life has changed, so have my tastes and eating habits...for the better!! I am now a fully plant-based eater, so my newer recipes will reflect this lifestyle and way of eating.

All of my old recipes will remain on my food blog, of course, so there will be a mixture of the old and the new for everyone to look through and choose. You can always play around with any recipe out there and make it your own, whether it's plant-based or not. There are always other options!
Thanks SO much for following! Happy Eating!

Cheesecake Muffin Pan Minis (LOW FAT!)

If you love cheesecake, but you find yourself avoiding it because it's too fattening or because you always seem to go for a larger slice than you should, then you'll LOVE these low-fat cheesecake minis!  They're only 165 calories and 2.2 g of fat each!!!



Ingredients
~20-30 Reduced Fat Nilla Wafers
2 (8 oz.) packages 1/3 Less Fat Philadelphia cream cheese
3/4 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 can No Sugar Added Cherry pie filling (I use Comstock)

Crush vanilla wafers in a closed freezer bag with a rolling pin.  Put ~1 Tbsp. of crushed wafers in the bottom of each lined muffin cup.

In a medium mixing bowl, beat cream cheese, sugar, eggs, and vanilla until smooth and light, making sure all the lumps are out.  Fill the muffin cups almost to the top.  Bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes.  Let cool, then top with cherry pie filling.  Makes 12.

These are great for parties.  You could add some blueberries on top of the cherries and have a red, white, and blue treat for the Fourth of July!  What's really great is,  these little guys are low fat!!  :)
