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

Great concept but the crust is in serious need of a little bit of sweetness. If I were to make it again, I would put some powdered sugar or brown sugar in the crust. It was kind of disappointing. The cream cheese mixture and berries tasted great and it was fairly simple to make.
