  • 8 (3-4 ounce) mini dessert dishes (ramekins)


  • 2 apples large, peeled, cored, and diced (recommend Golden Delicious or Braeburn)
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 3 tablespoons blonde coconut sugar
  • pinch of sea salt
  • 2/3 cup fat-free cream cheese softened
  • 1/3 cup Greek yogurt plain, fat-free
  • 4 dates no sugar added
  • 1/2 cup walnut halves (about 18)


  • Add diced apples, 1 teaspoon coconut sugar, salt, and cinnamon to a medium pot, cover, and cook on medium heat just until apples begin to boil. Reduce heat to a simmer and cook until tender, approximately 30 minutes. Be careful not to turn into applesauce. Allow to cool to room temperature before adding to dessert dishes.
  • While apples are cooking, in a medium mixing bowl add softened cream cheese, yogurt, and remaining coconut sugar. Beat with an electric mixer until smooth and sugar is dissolved, about 2 minutes. Refrigerate until ready to use.
  • Add dates to a food processor and pulse until finely diced. Add walnuts and continue to pulse just until a coarse crumb consistency and combined with dates.
  • Evenly layer to each dessert dish, walnut mixture, cream cheese, and lastly cooked apples. Sprinkle any remaining walnut mixture over the top.
  • Refrigerate until ready to serve.

    Question – The first step says to cook on medium heat until apples begin to boil. But there's no liquid, is there?
    Also – could I use Truvia instead of coconut sugar?

    • SkinnyMs  June 20, 2015

      Hi Erin,

      The apples produce liquid when cooking. If you prefer they have additional liquid, feel free to add 1-2 teaspoons water while they are cooking. You can use Truvia if you prefer, but it's
      so good with coconut sugar. I love coconut sugar because it's unrefined and has a low-glycemic index. Thanks! 🙂

      • Erin  June 20, 2015

        Great! Thanks for the quick response! I just didn't want to buy coconut sugar if I didn't have to …

    Excuse my english, as it is not my native language.
    My husband hates dates, what would you recommend I use instead?
    Thanks a lot!

    • Nichole  October 22, 2016

      Hi Marie! You an substitute raisins instead of dates, or any dried fruit. You can also choose to leave them out all together.

    another question on sugar…..have you ever used monkfruit sweetener? if so, how much would you add? Box says one packet equals 1/ 1/2 teaspoons. It also says its twice as sweet as sugar. Thoughts? I thought of making this for St. Patricks Day and addding a little green food coloring to the cream cheese

    • Nichole Furlong  March 13, 2019

      Hi Jan, I’m not super familiar with monkfuit sweetener. For this recipe, I would recommend making as directed without any substitutions.

    Can these be frozen?

    • Nichole Furlong  May 27, 2019

      Hi Sam, I would not freeze these cheesecakes.

  6. Hannah  February 13, 2020

    hi there, how long can these be kept in the fridge in air tight container?

    • Gale Compton  February 14, 2020

      Hannah, I would leave them for up to three days. After that, they may become watery.
