Healthy Desert Recipe: No Creamcheese, Yogurt Based Mini Cheesecake

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.


1 1/4 cups grounded oatmeal or almond flour
1/4 cups butter melted
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 tablespoons palm sugar
750 g balkan style vanilla yogurt
3/4 cups stevia
3 eggs

Preheat oven at 350 F. Line 18 muffin tins with thick cupcake liner or cupcake cups.   In a small bowl mix together ground oatmealor almond flour, melted butter, cinnamon, and palm sugar. Take 1tablespoon of crust mixture and press down at the bottom of the muffin liner.  Bake for 10 minutes.  Lower temperature to 325 F.  Mix together sugar and yogurt.  Add eggs one a time mixing after each addition.  Pour filling on top of the prebaked crust.  Bake at 325F for 15 minutes.

Minion Cupcake Cake

This is how I made my Ube (purple yam) Minion cupcake..  Enjoy! Come see how I made it in this youtube video.  Don't forget to subscribe for more updates! Used Wilton tip 1M to create the rose pattern on the cupcake.  Start pipping from middle cupcake and out. To create the eyes...  You will need 3 different sizes of round cookie cutter (3", 2.5, 1 inches, white fondant, grey fondant (goggle frame), light brown fondant (iris), and black fondant, large ball tool, and piping gel.  Cut out a 3" circle out of grey and white fondant.  Set aside in large ziplock bag.  Cut out a 2.5" circle in the middle of the grey circle.  This will be the frames for the minions goggles. With a small brush apply a small amount of water along the perimeter of the white circle.  Lay down the grey frames on top of the white circle.  Using a ball tool (See pic bellow) make an indent on the bottom centre of the white circle.  Place the brown 1" circle in the di

Pilipit - Filipino Twisted No Yeasts Donut

Pilipit is a Filipino style donut.  It has a crunchy outer shell and a soft inside.  It is similar to bannock or elephant ears.  These are similar to donuts and leavened with baking powder.  Traditionally coated with sugar or glazed I coated mine with powder sugar kind of like their elephant ears counter part.  But you know what they are perfect on their own without sugar.  The dough is sweet enough to hold on its own.   The ones that I made are for some reason soft on the inside.  I'm certain it's because I rested my dough for more than 30 minutes instead of the usual 15 minutes.  If you guys want more crunch in your pilipit just proof it (resting stage) for 15 minutes or less. Pilipit Ingredients: 2 eggs 1/4 cup sugar 1/4 teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon baking powder 1 tablespoon Vegetable oil 2 cups all purpose flour ( add a bit more if the mixture sticks to your hand) 3 tablespoon of milk ( add more if final mixture is dr
