We take regular ol’ cheesecake up a few notches with creamy peanut butter, sweet brown sugar and -- instead of the usual graham cracker crust -- ours is made from granola bars.
Sometimes we all need a little oomph added to our lives, so we thought why not spiff up one of our favorite desserts? They’re creamy, crunchy, peanut buttery indulgent little bites and we know you’ll love these Mini Peanut Butter Cheesecakes with Granola Crust
Made from Nature Valley Oats ‘n Honey bars, the crispy crunchy crust was a crazy hit… you’ll need half the box of granola bars to make it.
It’s super easy, just grab a plastic bag, throw them in and whack them into submission…ya know...into teeny tiny crumbs. Kitchen tip: a rolling pin is one of the best stress relievers out there!
Once you’re all loosey goosey and relaxed from whacking the crazy out of those bars, add all the little bits into some melted butter, give it a stir, and fill the bottoms of a bunch of muffin tins.
To make the cheesecake, blend up the usual cream cheese, sugar and eggs, but make it super special and add in some ultra creamy peanut butter.
Add a final touch with some vanilla extract to make everything lovely and sweet, and bake ’em then cool 'em for an hour or so.
We can’t even begin to imagine anything peanut buttery with out some chocolate, so if you’re like us, whip up a super easy chocolate glaze made from chocolate chips, butter and a touch of corn syrup so you can add a hint of chocolate on top.
Delish … you know you want one!
