Creating the Perfect Crust:

The journey to deliciousness begins with the crust. A simple mixture of crushed graham crackers or digestive biscuits, melted butter, and a touch of granulated sugar (if desired) forms the base of these mini cheesecakes. Pressed into the bottom of muffin tin cups, the crust provides a satisfying crunch and a hint of sweetness that perfectly complements the creamy cheesecake filling.

Whipping Up the Filling:

The creamy cheesecake filling is where the magic truly happens. Reduced-fat cream cheese serves as the foundation, providing richness and tanginess to the dessert. Non-fat Greek yogurt and unsweetened applesauce add creaminess and moisture without the extra calories, while honey or maple syrup adds natural sweetness. A splash of vanilla extract, eggs, all-purpose flour, and a pinch of salt round out the flavors, creating a smooth and velvety filling that’s simply irresistible.

Baking to Perfection:

Once the muffin tin cups are filled with the crust and cheesecake filling, it’s time to bake. The mini cheesecakes are baked in a preheated oven until they’re set and slightly firm to the touch, with just a hint of jiggle in the center. As they cool, they continue to set, resulting in perfectly creamy and decadent cheesecakes that are sure to impress.

Finishing Touches:

Before serving, these mini cheesecakes can be topped with fresh berries or a fruit compote for a burst of flavor and color. A dollop of light whipped cream or Greek yogurt adds a touch of creaminess and indulgence without the extra calories. Whether enjoyed as a guilt-free dessert or a sweet afternoon snack, Weight Watchers Mini Cheesecakes are sure to become a favorite in your recipe repertoire.

  • 8 oz (225g) reduced-fat cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup (60g) non-fat Greek yogurt
  • 1/4 cup (60ml) unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/4 cup (60ml) honey or maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Cooking spray or cupcake liners

For the Crust:

  • 3/4 cup (90g) crushed graham crackers or digestive biscuits
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar (optional)

Optional Toppings:

  • Fresh strawberry or fruit compote
  • Light whipped cream or Greek yogurt


  1. Preheat Oven: Preheat your oven to 325°F (160°C). Line a standard muffin tin with paper liners or lightly coat with cooking spray.
  2. Prepare Crust: In a small bowl, mix together the crushed graham crackers or digestive biscuits, melted butter, and granulated sugar (if using) until well combined. Divide the mixture evenly among the muffin tin cups, pressing down firmly to create a crust.
  3. Prepare Filling: In a large mixing bowl, beat the softened cream cheese until smooth and creamy. Add the non-fat Greek yogurt, unsweetened applesauce, honey or maple syrup, vanilla extract, eggs, all-purpose flour, and salt. Beat until well combined and smooth.
  4. Fill Muffin Cups: Spoon the cheesecake filling evenly into the muffin tin cups, filling each almost to the top.
  5. Bake: Place the muffin tin in the preheated oven and bake for 20-25 minutes, or until the cheesecakes are set and slightly firm to the touch. They may still jiggle slightly in the center, but they will continue to set as they cool.
  6. Cool and Chill: Remove the mini cheesecakes from the oven and let them cool in the muffin tin for 10-15 minutes. Then, transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely. Once cooled, refrigerate the cheesecakes for at least 2 hours, or until thoroughly chilled.
  7. Serve: Before serving, top the mini cheesecakes with fresh berries or fruit compote and a dollop of light whipped cream or Greek yogurt, if desired. Enjoy these delightful treats as a guilt-free dessert or snack!
