These extra creamy and delicious homemade cheesecake cupcakes are quick to make.

Recipe from Chocolate Covered Katie (chocolatecoveredkatie.com)

Total Time 20 minutes
Yield 10 - 12 cheesecakes


  • 12 oz cream cheese or vegan cream cheese
  • 1 cup plain yogurt, such as almondmilk yogurt
  • 1/3 cup sweetener of choice (sugar, xylitol, honey, etc.)
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 2 tsp cornstarch (or sub 3 tbsp almond flour)
  • optional 4-5 graham crackers


  • Bring your cream cheese to room temperature. Preheat oven to 350 F. (I also like to add a baking pan filled 1/2 way with water to the bottom oven rack to add moisture to the oven and prevent cracking, but this is not required.) Line the bottoms of a muffin tin with circles of parchment paper or muffin liners. If a crust is desired, combine crushed graham cracker crumbs with 1 tbsp butter or oil (or enough water to make them sticky) and press into the tin. In a blender or food processor, combine all cheesecake ingredients until smooth. Portion into the muffin tins, smooth down, and bake 20 minutes on the center rack - then do not open the oven door, but turn off the heat and leave in the oven 5 additional minutes. Remove still-underbaked cheesecake cupcakes from the oven, let sit one hour to cool gradually, then refrigerate overnight. During this time, the cupcakes will firm up, and the wrappers will also peel off easily the next day.
