Upside Down Cheesecake In A Jar Minis

Most of the time when I opt for dessert it involves chocolate, but every now and then
I crave something sweet and fruity.

I love cheesecake, but since I do not need an entire cheesecake sitting around tempting
me, I decided to make a few mini cheesecakes to curb my sweet tooth.

I didn't have any graham crackers or cookies in the house, but I did have a bag of  Purely
Elizabeth Granola, so I decided to grind some granola in my mini food processor and
make upside down cheesecake by putting the crust on top.
The granola idea was awesome! It had great flavor and crunch too.
(this is not a sponsored post, I just love this brand of granola)

I used coconut sugar in the cheesecake mixture, but white granulated sugar would
be totally fine. You could also use graham crackers or cookies for the crust, but
I think I'm on to something  with the granola idea!
Upside down cheesecakes in a jar turned out super cute and they were a tasty
little dessert too!  Enjoy!
