This recipe took many attempts to get right. Once I tasted the first batch, I was driven to make it work. If you can’t get ahold of my Grain Free Mix, you can substitute with almond flour, but it won’t have the same results. I tried it both ways and my taste testers all liked the mix version better, but they agreed that the almond flour version was good if you didn’t try the other one first! Enjoy this treat all year round — my kitchen to yours. Yields 14 tarts.



  • 2 and 1/2 cups Rorie’s Grain Free Mix

  • 3 eggs

  • 1 tablespoon avocado oil or melted coconut oil

Cheese Filling

  • 1 pound (450 grams) farmer cheese

  • 1 (5.3-oz./150-g.) container organic Greek yogurt

  • 2 eggs

  • 1 teaspoon Gefen Vanilla Extract

  • 2 tablespoons Rorie’s Grain Free Mix

  • 1/4 – 1/3 cup coconut nectar or Gefen Honey


Prepare the Cheese Tarts


Preheat oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit (170 degrees Celsius). Grease 14 metal muffin tins with coconut or avocado oil.


In a medium-sized bowl, combine dough ingredients. Mix well, either by hand or with an electric mixer, until a soft dough forms.


Divide dough into 14 small balls. Press each ball into the bottom and up the side of a muffin tin to form a cup shape. Par-bake for five minutes. Remove and allow to cool.


Meanwhile, combine filling ingredients in a NutriBullet or blender. Blend for one to two minutes until it reaches a creamy, smooth consistency. (Don’t skip this step, and don’t try to mix by hand or with an electric mixer. If you do, your filling will be clumpy.)


Top each muffin cup with three tablespoons of the cheese filling. Return to oven for 20–25 minutes.


Allow tarts to cool completely before removing from the muffin tins. Use a spoon to remove any stuck batter around the sides, then carefully lift each tart out of its muffin holder.


Refrigerate and serve cold. Top with fresh chocolate on top.

Regular yogurt or sour cream.

Great cheesecake I made the filling in a pre made graham cracker crust and it was delicious. If baking in cake form instead of as muffins, increase cook time to 45-50 minutes.

Not as rich and sweet as regular cheesecake but very good and you can eat more without feeling overloaded. Maybe next time I’d add a little sour cream I felt like it needed a drop more moisture but overall it was great, would make again.

We are so happy that you enjoyed this lighter cheesecake recipe and that it can also be made into a cake 🙂
