I was super psyched to make these. The combination of a sweet cream cheese, cheesecake like filling with blueberry bran muffins sounded delectable. And the husband was excited as the cheesecake part reminded him of the filling in his favorite dessert, the pumpkin roll.

I made them last night and split the tasty results with a friend. Let’s just say Good stuff! Everyone enjoyed them except the toddler, he was a bit turned off by the look of them, but that’s fickle 2 year old for you. Blueberry Cheesecake Muffins

  • 1 package BlueBran VitaMix (Blueberry Bran Muffin Mix)
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1-1/2 cups water
  • 8-oz tub Philadelphia Fat-Free Cream Cheese
  • 6 Tbsps. powdered sugar
  • 1 low-fat graham cracker sheet, crushed (2 squares or 4 rectangles)

Preheat oven to 400 F.

Line a standard 12-cup muffin pan with paper baking cups.

Prepare according to package: In a large mixing bowl, combine VitaMuffin mix, egg whites and water. Blend well. Set aside.

In a bowl, mix fat-free cream cheese and powdered sugar to thoroughly blend.

Divide muffin batter evenly among the baking cups. Spoon the cream cheese mixture evenly on top of the batter in each cup. Sprinkle the graham cracker crumbs over each muffin.

Bake according to package, about 25 minutes, or until firm.

Allow muffins to cool, then indulge your cheesecake craving in a lusciously light way!

    I couldn’t wait to try these so I just made them. Wow! These are delicious, moist and creamy but not too sweet. And the graham crackers on top make it taste like real cheesecake! My husband’s already had 3 and my son is on his 4th! My family thinks it’s a winner!

    What a hit! My in-laws came for brunch this morning so i made these and everyone LOVED them!!! This recipe is a keeper! I made 2 batches so I even have a few leftover for later! YUM!

    Oh my, these look wonderful! I just ordered the mix to make these. Cheesecake without guilt, how great is that!

    How delicious! I ordered the mixes after seeing this recipe and just made them this morning. Oh my goodness, they are even BETTER than I expected! Rich cheesecake in a diet muffin that tastes delicious! The only problem is that I can’t stop eating them!

    I just want to say THANKS, your suggestions help to make a healthy way of living that much better. If we all shared our methods it would be a lot easier to keep on this path.

    I tried these today, and they turned out great! Rich, moist, and substantial. I liked these much more than the pre-frozen muffins I bought in the market. I froze half the muffins, and I’m sure DH and I can finish the remaining six over the next few days. Thanks for a great recipe.

    I have a question…

    I bought regular blueberry muffin mix. Do I prepare it according to the package and THEN add two egg whites? Or was that just for the vitamuffin mix?
    Thanks!

    Stephanie – The ingredients here was for the vitamix, if you want to try the idea with another mix then you have two choices.

    1.) Follow the direction on the package and then add cream cheese and powdered sugar
    2.) Try to make them using only the ingredients listed here. I can’t guarantee they’ll come out as the vitamix is probably way different.
