As if no-bake weren't tempting enough, consider that the graham cracker crust for these berry cheesecake bars has pecans in it. Ooh la la! In the filling, nonfat Greek yogurt and reduced-fat cream cheese cut the calories and saturated fat.

Made it using coconut sugar only because it s what I have. Fast simple and delicious!!! My picky family felt very satisfied calling this dessert. No sugar hangover or craving after eating less lush cheesecake. Will make again Read More
