Cookie Dough Mini Cheesecakes
These Cookie Dough Mini Cheesecakes are out of this world. Quite possibly the best cheesecake flavor EVER. What can be better than cookie dough and cheesecake combined. Bonus points for being the perfect single serve size! These are easy to make and perfect for any Summer festivity! They are sweet but not overwhelming, and are made with surprisingly simple ingredients.
HOW TO MAKE THE MOST DELICIOUS COOKIE DOUGH CHEESECAKE:
All you’ll need is a few simple ingredients, two mixing bowls, muffin pan, and muffin liners (I love the reusable silicone muffin liners because they are so easy to use and the muffins never stick to the liners!). You’ll be amazed at how delicious these cookie dough cheesecake bites are!
- Almond flour
- Maple syrup
- Unsalted butter
- Milk (I used 2%)
- Mini chocolate chips
- Cream cheese
- Greek yogurt
- Cane sugar
- Vanilla extract
What I used:
- Premium Bakeware Standard Muffin and Cupcake Pan, 12-Cup Baking Pan
- Reusable Silicone Baking Cups (12) – these are one of my favorite kitchen purchases ever! They are $8, super easy to wash and are perfect for muffins, cupcakes, mini cheesecakes and more!
- 365 by Whole Foods Market, Expeller Pressed Coconut Oil, Unrefined Virgin, 14 Fl Oz
- Almond flour is a little on the pricey side, so I like to buy mine in bulk! You can find my favorite one here. This is especially great if you use almond flour often or plan to use it again in the future. If you need any ideas, below are some of my favorite almond flour recipes!
- You can use any chocolate chips you’d like. Since I don’t have any dietary restrictions, I often just buy these chocolate chips, however I also love these dairy-free chocolate chips. For sugar free chocolate chips, this is a great option!
- Last but not least, I used my favorite Greek yogurt (for baking, smoothies or yogurt bowls) – FAGE 2%
NOTE: I have not personally tried these substitutes for this recipe and can’t guarantee they will work. I share substitutions in hopes to help those who need to make substitutions!
- for the cookie dough, you can use coconut oil in place of the butter.
- instead of maple syrup in the cookie dough, you could try a different liquid sweetener. You may have to tweak the amount though.
- in place of greek yogurt, you could use sour cream
- instead of cane sugar, you could use any granulated sugar
This recipe has a few steps but it doesn’t take much time and is well worth the wait! First, mix together the wet ingredients for the cookie dough (milk, butter, maple syrup and vanilla extract). Then mix in the almond flour. Finally, fold in chocolate chips. Place about 1 tbsp cookie dough in each muffin cup and press down. Refrigerate while you make the cheesecake filling. In a separate mixing bowl, cream the cream cheese with an electric or hand mixer. Add in the Greek yogurt, cane sugar and vanilla extract and mix until well combined. Finally, mix in egg until smooth. Add about 2 tbsp cream cheese mixture over the cookie dough and spread evenly. Bake at 350°F for 18-20 minutes. Let cool at least 30 minutes. Refrigerate for 4 hours, or overnight. Top with melted chocolate (optional) and cookie dough crumbles (also optional). Enjoy!
