"Added note, it took about twice as long for mine to cook and with wheat allergies in the family used Pamelas baking and pancake mix. Put it all in my little Ninja blender, quick with easy clean-up."

"I read the recipe, ran for the kitchen and made the cheesecake. I substituted a sugar replacement; out of the oven a few minutes ago. Great & fewer calories. Next one I'll try some peanut butter in it. Thanks for the recipe."
