I’m about to drop a bomb, so get ready. YOU CAN HAVE CHEESECAKE FOR BREAKFAST.

I know. Sounds crazy right? But trust me, it’s totally allowed.

These breakfast cheesecakes are made with Greek yogurt, which we all know is super low in fat and high in protein. And they’re sweetened with nothing but pure, natural honey. The crust is granola: gently cinnamon-spiced and loaded with whole grain oats. And just look at that topping! It doesn’t get any better than fresh summer berries.

You can actually feel good about eating cheesecake for breakfast!

And feel good about feeding breakfast cheesecakes to your family too, because not only are they made with healthy, wholesome ingredients, but they make an awesome grab and go morning meal or snack. If your family is anything like mine, mornings can be crazy with everyone going off in different directions. Sometimes we barely have time for a decent meal. But you can make these sweet little minis ahead of time, and they’ll chill out in your fridge for just those kinds of moments.

On your next Target run, grab a tub of Dannon Oikos Greek Yogurt for this recipe. It’s really thick and creamy, with just the right amount of tang to make your breakfast cheesecakes really shine.

And while you’re at it, try a jar of Smucker’s Fruit and Honey Spreads. You can use this special Cartwheel offer!

I used the Triple Berry flavor to top my breakfast cheesecakes, but really any flavor would make a perfect accent. They’re made with ripened fruit that’s naturally sweetened with honey, so these spreads are a lovely compliment to the sweet and floral honey flavors in the granola crust and yogurt cheesecake filling.

Here’s hoping your family will enjoy these breakfast cheesecakes as much as mine does!

  4. Stir in the lemon juice, and divide the mixture equally between all 12 wells of the pan.
