My family loves cheesecake but we all like different flavors. My daughter-in-law loves The cheesecake Factory (cheesecake) however I think this recipe is better.  I came up with this recipe to make all of them happy. Personally I like a plain cheesecake but everyone else likes either blueberries, raspberries, or strawberries. This instructable is the solution to our problem and it is so versatile! The Greek Yogurt is what makes this recipe sing!  Did I mention it is gluten free? Yes, and it taste just like cheesecake!   Follow through and I will show you how to make your family happy!

Step 1: Ingredients

4 Tablespoons melted unsalted butter
1/2 Cup crushed pecans
1 Tablespoon Coconut flour (optional) this adds to the flavor of the crust
1 teaspoon honey or Agave Nectar 
Pie Filling:

2 8 oz.  packages of softened cream cheese less 1/4 cup ( this will be saved for frosting if desired.)
1/4 cup Greek yogurt (room temperature)
3/4 Cup sugar
1 Teaspoon Pure vanilla
2 fresh eggs room temperature

These cheesecake cupcakes are very light in texture, not dense like a regular cheesecake but . . . If you want them more dense, replace the yogurt with cream cheese. I like it better with the Greek yogurt because the flavor is more like a real cheesecake but you do sacrifice the heavier texture.

1/8 Cup softened cream cheese
1/8 Cup Greek yogurt
1 vanilla bean
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/8 - 1/4 Cup fresh berries as desired  I used frozen raspberries
1/2 teaspoon of desired sweetener or less
Mint for garnish if desired

I used raspberries and Blueberries with the topping for this but you could use strawberries or different flavors. I made another variation using the juice from the berries and making a light syrup. This recipe makes about 12 cupcakes. I had filling left over so I put the filling into a custard dishes and baked them also! They tasted so good even without the crust and topping.
Arrow Root starch flour or corn starch
Mashed berries
