Description

These lemon cheesecake bars are lightened up and lower in calories. The cheesecake filling is made of Greek Yogurt instead of cream cheese and has a zesty lemon flavor to them


Ingredients

Scale
  • 3 graham cracker sheets
  • 1 tablespoon of light butter
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups plain Greek Yogurt (whole or 2%)
  • 1 teaspoon lemon extract (or 1 tablespoon of lemon juice, and 1 tsp of lemon zest)

Instructions

  1. Break cookies and place in food processor.* Pulse until ground into medium-fine crumbs. Put into medium mixing bowl and add the melted butter.
  2. Or crush the graham crackers in a ziploc bag and crush them with a rolling pin.
  3. In a medium bowl add the greek yogurt and sugar. Stir until combined then add in 4 eggs, cornstarch, salt, vanilla extract, and lemon extract.
  4. Place the graham cracker crumbs into an 8X8 in pan pressing down on them to cover the whole pan. Then pour the cheesecake batter over the crumbs. Give it a shake a couple of times on the table to make sure the batter is evenly distributed over the crust. Bake at 300 for 60 minutes.
