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.

Olaf Rice Crispy Sculpture

Build a snowman in the summer with rice crispy treats and buttercream.   I can't say I miss the snow because I am perfectly happy with this warm weather.  Just in case, here is one way to make a snowman in the summer.  But before that here are some pics from my niece's Frozen themed birthday party.

Here is how I made Olaf....

You will need:

3 preparations of rice crispy treats (found in any Rice Crispy cereal box)
about 150 g brown fondant
60 g orange fondant
250 g black fondant
250 g white fondant for eyes, teeth, and cheeks
1 preparation of shortening base buttercream
3 large bamboo BBQ sticks
1 foot bendable florist wire
gardening sheers

Make Olaf's head first since this will determine the size and the proportionality of the whole sculpture.  The recipe found in the Rice Crispy cereal box is perfect amount to make Olaf's head.  Use the microwave method to make a chewy and more malleable rice crispy treats.  Let the treats sit for a maximum of 8 minutes…

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.
