How to make these cheesecake bites

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a muffin pan with 9 cupcake liners.
  • Place the oats and nuts in the bowl of a food processor; pulse until the oats and nuts are coarsely chopped. Transfer the mixture to a bowl and stir in the cinnamon, coconut oil, and sweetener.
  • Spoon a heaping tablespoon of the oatmeal mixture into each of the cupcake liners, pressing the mixture down with a spoon. Bake for 10 minutes then remove from oven and cool completely.
  • Using a mixer, beat the cream cheese until smooth. Add the Greek yogurt, sweetener, egg, and vanilla. Beat until completely smooth.
  • Divide the filling evenly between the muffin liners. Then bake in the oven for 25 minutes, until centers are set.
  • Allow to cool completely, then place in the refrigerator to chill. When you’re ready to serve the cheesecakes, remove the paper liners and top them with the berries and mint sprigs (optional).
  • Store any remaining cheesecake bites in the refrigerator.

How long does a fresh cheesecake last?

Cheesecake typically lasts about 5-7 days if stored in the fridge. Tightly wrap it with plastic in its original container or place it in an airtight container. If you would like your cheesecake to last longer, feel free to freeze it and just remove the night before and let it thaw in the fridge.

Can Cheesecake sit out

You can absolutely leave it to sit out. But not for too long. It should be ok to let your cheesecake sit out at room temperate for a maximum of 6 hours. Depending on the temperature of your kitchen, most recipes will call for some sort of dairy so its recommended to store your unused cheesecake in the fridge to be on the safe side.
