How to Make Honey Pear Ginger Cheesecake

While it does take a little time to actually bake and chill the cheesecake, the hands-on time to make the crust, filling, and topping is actually fairly quick and simple! Here’s how to make a Honey Pear Ginger Cheesecake:

1. Blend & Press Crust

Combine oats, sugar, cinnamon, coconut oil (or melted butter), and maple syrup in a food processor. Pulse until evenly smooth. Press into a springform pan.

2. Make Cheesecake Filling

Blend cream cheese and yogurt together, then transfer to a mixing bowl and combine with sugar, honey, vanilla, egg whites, lemon juice and zest, ginger, cinnamon, and salt.

3. Bake & Chill Cheesecake

Pour over the crust in the pan and bake for 50-60 minutes, or until set. After the cheesecake cools completely, let it set in the fridge for at least 4 hours.

4. Make Pear Topping

Thinly slice pears, drizzle with honey and cinnamon, then place on a baking sheet and bake until tender.

5. Top Cheesecake

Add the pears over the cheesecake and drizzle with extra honey!

TIP: Use a Mandoline Slicer to get really thin pear slices for the topping! It really makes such a difference and saves so much time.
