High Protein Cheesecake!

This has to be one of my FAVORITE recipes. High protein, pretty low calorie compared to Cheesecake Factory Cheesecakes, and SO easy to make!
Macros: makes 8 HUGE square servings (or you could do slices!)
1 out of 8: 198 calories, 9.7 g fat, 11.2 g carbs, 15.8 g protein!


Crust
Cheesecake Filling
  • 8 oz light cream cheese
  • 12 oz fat free greek yogurt
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 egg whites (6 TBS liquid egg whites)
  • 2 scoops whey protein
  • 1-3 TBS sweetener of your choice
Method
  • Preheat oven to 250 F
  • Mix the Filling ingredients! Let the cream cheese sit out in room temperature to soften up
  • Blend all the liquid/soft ingredients together
  • Mix dry ingredients together in a separate bowl
  • Then combine the wet and dry ingredients
  • Set the cheesecake filling ingredients to the side and start working on the Crust!
  • Blend up your graham crackers (the thicker the crust you want, use more crackers!)
  • Then mix the blended up graham "flour" with the coconut oil, almond milk and optional syrup.
  • Put parchment paper into a baking dish and plop the crust onto the parchment paper and flatten out with your hands. Pour the cheesecake filling onto the crust.
  • Optional Topping: I made a cinnamon swirl mix to top my cheesecake! Made out of 1/4 cup of zero calorie syrup + 1 TSP cinnamon mixed together, then swirled on top!
  • Bake the cheesecake for 30 minutes at 250 F. Then bake for 45 minutes at 220 F! Let it cool COMPLETELY for a few hours/overnight in the fridge to set! Then cut it up!
