I lost a few calories and fat grams on my version but was still excellent! I used reduced fat graham crackers, Splenda instead of regular sugar, no transfat light butter, 1 and 3/4 packages of neaufchatel cheese (1/3 less fat) instead of regular cream cheese, 1 1/2 tbls. reduced fat bisquick istead of flour, 1 3/4 cups blueberries and did not use eggs at all. Tastes great and a little healthier!!
