Passion Fruit Mini Cheesecakes for Baby Led Weaning and Kids

Can I just start by saying ‘how gorgeous do these little cheesecakes look!’. The photos alone would inspire me to make these all over again.

The recipe is easy, very hard to mess up and uses a minimal amount of lovely ingredients.  But the best part is that you can make these with your baby! If your baby is able to stand up of course 🙂 You will have to excuse the wobbly camera in the video because Oscar kept hitting it with his shoulder when he was helping. It was too cute to change 🙂

When my mother used to make cheesecake, the base was always made with digestive biscuits, LOT’S of butter and was obviously super unhealthy. The cheese on the top already contains enough fat so I wanted to keep the base as super healthy as possible! For this reason I have made it almost like a flapjack base and used a mix of oats, seeds, rapeseed oil and only 1 tablespoon of maple syrup. I then baked them until they held together just like a normal cheesecake would be.

I have become addicted to the new Dunnes Stores dairy range. Seriously it is all amazing! The Greek yogurt is out of this work and my kids love it with just a sprinkle of berries. For this recipe I used a mix of their yummy cream cheese, cottage cheese, and just a teeny bit of fresh cream and again 1 tablespoon of maple syrup. There is no gelatine but yet these little cheesecakes hold their shape perfectly. Just make sure to whisk up that cream until it forms light peaks! I kept my cheesecakes in the freezer too so they were almost like an ice cream when we ate them. Just take them out about 30 minutes before serving.
