Ingredients

Crust

  • 2 cups graham cracker crumbs
  • 1/4 cup splenda
  • 6 tablespoons butter

Key Lime Filling

  • 16 ounces cream cheese .. softened
  • 1 cup key lime greek yogurt .. 2 pkgs Dannon Light & Fit
  • 6 key limes ... juice and zest
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/4 cup splenda
  • 3 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • extra limes for garnish

Instructions

  • To make these Key Lime Cheesecake Bars, preheat your oven to 350 degrees and place a large pan of water on the bottom rack of your oven. 
  • Start with the crust. Mix graham cracker crumbs, 1/4 cup Splenda and melted butter together in a large mixing bowl. Grab a 9 x 9 pan and line it with parchment paper and then pour your graham cracker crumb mixture into your pan and using your hands or the back of a spatula, press the crumbs together fimly in an even layer and up the sides to form your crust. Set aside. 
  • Add the cream chese to a large bowl and using an electric mixer, beat until creamy. Add in the Spenda and mix to combine. Next, add in the key lime greek yogurt, key lime juice and zest, vanilla, cornstarch and salt. Mix to combine well and then pour your filling on top of your prepared crust and smooth out until even. 
  • Bake for 25 minutes and after the 25 minutes, turn your oven off and open the door. Do not remove the Key Lime Cheesecake Bars but let them sit in the open oven for at least an hour before moving them to the refrigerator. Let them chill overnight and then cut into squares and serve. Refrigerate leftovers in air-tight container

Notes

  • If you are unable to find Key Lime greek yogurt, using plain is fine.
  • You can substitute the graham cracker crumbs with walnuts pulverized in a food processor.
  • You can substitue the Splenda with regular sugar if you do not wish to make this low-sugar or you can also use the Spenda/Sugar mix found in the baking aisle of your grocery store.
