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!
