Gluten Free Cheesecake

Well, today is the big day! I have my first day of high school.  I am obviously very nervous and excited all at once.  I am also stressing out a lot because I am supposed to have an ID by now, but when I went to the place to get one yesterday, the person who does the IDs was not in.  I'm not sure how I was supposed to plan for that one, but now I need to try and get one before school this morning, or after school.  I wish I was just fully prepared to go into school today.  I am excited because today I actually do get to start teaching geometry! I am a little nervous about how class will go, but I can't wait to meet the kids and jump right in!  I will let you all know how it goes soon!

Today I also wanted to share a recipe for a gluten free "healthy" cheesecake that I made.  I brought this in for the last day of middle school as a treat along with a bunch of cookies.  One of the students was gluten free and so I wanted to make sure I had an option for him to enjoy.  He must have enjoyed it because he said, "YOU ROCK!" on the way out of class.  It was pretty darn cute.  Unfortunately, I did not get any photos before the kids destroyed the cheesecake so the one below is from the website of the original recipe.  I adapted the recipe to make it even healthier by using vanilla greek yogurt.  It was pretty delicious!

2 8 oz containers of light cream cheese, at room temperature
4 eggs
2/3 cup sugar
1 cup non-fat Vanilla Greek Yogurt (I used Chobani)
1 tsp vanilla

1. Preheat oven to 350.
2.  In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese, sugar and eggs until well combined.  Pour mixture into a 9 inch pie dish and place in oven for 35 minutes.  Remove and let cool.
3.  While baking, mix the greek yogurt with the vanilla.  Once cheesecake has cooled for about 20 minutes. Spread this mixture over the top.  Place cheesecake in fridge for at least 4 hours.

Enjoy :)


  1. I am saving this! A good friend of mine is gluten free, and we rarely have stuff she can eat. This is awesome!

  3. No water bath required?! Amazing :) My sister is GF and I always feel so bad making desserts, which I love to do, because she can rarely eat them! Thanks for this!!

  4. what about the crust?????

  5. I make pumpkin pie without a crust and replace the 2 tbls flour my recipe calls for with gf flour. Turns out great.

  6. Looks like a crustless pie? Did you grease the pie pan first? I've got to try this; looks awesome. Imagine the possibilities with a berry topping!!
