February is heart and stroke month. This recipe is filled with ingredients that are good for your heart. I got a request to make a healthy desert, an in between treat but not a cupcake. I know desert and healthy does not go well together but yogurt and berries are heart friendly. I replace cream cheese with vanilla balkan style yogurt, sugar with stevia, the graham crust with oatmeal crust. I use whole eggsi n the filling but the egg yolks can be left out and use only the egg whites and the crust can be skipped all together.
