Total Time: 3 hours
Servings: 12

Ingredients 

For the crust:

  • 2 Cups graham crumbs
  • ½ Cup salted butter, melted
  • ¼ Cup brown sugar

For the filling:

  • 8 Ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 2 Tablespoons Greek yogurt
  • 1 egg
  • ¼ Cup caramel sauce, will use more for drizzling afterwards
  • ¼ Cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • ¼ Teaspoon cinnamon

For the apples:

For the topping:

  • Cup flour
  • Cup brown sugar
  • ½ Cup rolled oats
  • 1 Teaspoon cinnamon
  • 6 Tablespoons salted butter, softened

Instructions 

  • Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.
  • Line 12 muffin cups with liners. Spray the liners with non-stick spray.
  • Combine the graham crumbs, melted butter, and brown sugar in a medium sized bowl. Spoon a little of this mixture into each of the muffin cup liners. Press it evenly into the bottom of the cups.
  • Use a stand mixer (or hand mixer) to cream the cream cheese. Then add the greek yogurt, egg, caramel sauce, brown sugar, vanilla, and cinnamon. Mix this until smooth.
  • Spoon the cheesecake mixture evenly over the crusts in each of the muffin cups.
  • Peel, core, and dice the apples. Measure the brown sugar and cinnamon into a medium size bowl and combine them well. Then add the diced apples and stir to coat them well. Set this aside.
  • In a separate, large bowl, whisk together the flour, brown sugar, rolled oats, and cinnamon. Then use a pastry cutter to cut in the softened butter until the mixture is crumbly.
  • Spoon a little of the apple mixture into each muffin cup. Then spoon on a little of the topping.
  • Bake for 30 minutes.
  • Chill for at least 2 hours. Garnish with whipped cream if desired.

Notes

Make sure to pack the graham cracker crusts, you don’t want a loose base because the cheesecake filling and toppings are weighty. 
Optional garnish: whipped cream, ice cream, or cool whip and a drizzle of caramel sauce.
