“These are delicious, cupcake-sized cheesecakes. The "caramel" flavor comes from the coconut palm sugar, which can sometimes be found in the Asian section of your grocery store. Coconut palm sugar is an unrefined sweetener that is made out of coconut palm sap, and it has fewer carbs than common sugar. If you can't find it, feel free to substitute brown sugar.”
1 mini cheesecake
