Ingredients: 

Crust: 

  • 1 1/2 cups Envirokidz Peanut Butter Panda Puffs
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp melted coconut oil

 
Cheesecake layer: 

  • 3/4 cup nonfat greek yogurt
  • 8 oz low fat cream cheese
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup

  • pinch of salt

 
Toppings:

Directions: 
  1. Line a mini muffin tin with mini cupcake liner.  
  2. For the Crust: In a food processor, blend the Panda Puffs until a light powder.  Pour into a bowl and combine with the coconut oil until evenly mixed.  Pour doubt a teaspoon of the this mixture into each of the muffin tin wells.  Press it down with your fingers or the back of a spoon into an even layer across the bottom of the cupcake liner.
