Lightened-Up No-Bake Cheesecake


  • 1/2 cup (60 grams) finely crushed low-fat plain granola (certified gluten-free if necessary)

  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 8 medium (95 grams) strawberries, sliced
  • 1/3 cup (50 grams) blueberries


Place 8 paper liners in each of 8 cups of a muffin pan. Spoon about 1 tablespoon crushed cereal in each, pressing down.
