Prep Time15 mins
Cook Time45 mins
Servings: 12 mini cheesecakes
Author: Ilona

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup pretzels crushed
  • 1 Tbsp. cane sugar*
  • 1/3 cup unsalted butter melted
  • 2 pkg. 8 oz. cream cheese, softened
  • 3/4 cup cane sugar*
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 cup greek yogurt
  • 2 1/2 Tbsp. matcha powder

Optional

  • 3/4 cup chocolate chips melted

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 F. Prepare muffin tin with silicone liners.
  • In a medium bowl combine crushed pretzels or graham crackers, cane sugar and butter. Pour pretzels into each liner, press firmly. Bake for 15 minutes.
  • Remove from oven and lower the heat for 300 F.
  • In a medium bowl beat cream cheese with cane sugar and vanilla extract with electric mixer for about 2 - 3 minutes. Add eggs, each at a time. Beat all ingredients together until all will become smooth. Add greek yogurt and mix. Add matcha powder.
  • Pour cream cheese into each liner. Bake for about 25 - 30 minutes. Remove from oven and cool off before serving. Dip each mini matcha cheesecake in melted chocolate. Store in refrigerator.**

Notes

* Regular sugar can be used. ** I've noticed that pretzel crust doesn't stick very well, so after baking remove cupcakes from baking pan an leave them with liners to cool off completely. You can serve them how they are or sprinkle pretzel crust back on top of the cheesecake cupcakes. Also storing them in the refrigerator makes the pretzel crust solid.
