Incorrect nutrition or not, this is VERY healthy compared to regular cheesecake and TASTES GREAT. Maybe different brands of crust come out with different numbers? Either way, I would rather have this than "real" cheesecake!!!!
This recipe is pretty good for the BFL program, but the nutrition facts are incorrect. One serving of the pie crust alone is 100 calories. I chose to make mine without the crust and it comes out fine (although crust would taste better!) I added a bit more splenda to compensate.
