Low Fat Lemon Cheesecake

Lemon Cheesecake

I tried/ modified a recipe I found online for a low fat baked cheesecake. I made mine a lemon cheesecake, which was delicious, tasting far more decadent than it really is! This recipe I found here: http://www.dietandfitnesstoday.com/recipe.php?recipeid=124

I changed it a tad. heres the recipe i used:

1 graham cracker crust (recipe below cheesecake recipe)

2- 8oz tubs of fat free cream cheese (PLEASE USE PHILADELPHIA!!!)

2t whole wheat flour

1/4c skim milk (i used 1% cuz it was on hand)

1/2c egg white product

15 mini packets of Truvia (stevia) (about 3T of sweetener)

just over 1T lemon juice (use a tad more if you want it more lemony)

1Tsp vanilla extract

Preparation:

Make Graham cracker crust (unless you chose to buy one from the store- lazy!)

Preheat oven 350 deg. Using mixer on low speed, combine flour and milk. Add
cream cheese. Increase speed to medium, add egg sub, sweetener, vanilla and
lemon juice. Pour into crust. Bake for 35 min or until center is set. Let cool.
Refrigerate before serving.

Graham Cracker Crust:

Preheat oven to 350′

1 2/3 C finely crushed graham cracker (use whole wheat graham cracker if you wish, or you could try Nilla Wafers)

1/4c + 1T unsweetened applesauce

1tsp cinnamon

Mix all ingredients until it forms a clump, spread evenly in a 9-inch dish/ pan

put in oven for about 8 Minutes

Unforunately, I don’t know how to prevent the cheesecake from cracking, but it won’t effect the taste. Top it with whatever your ❤ desires!

    Wow that cheesecake looks good. I’m a sucker for lemon and berries so I would love that with some nice fresh blueberries on the side. Also, to make cheesecakes and pies not crack, bake it in a large cookie tray filled with 1/2 inch water
