VERY BERRY PROTEIN CHEESECAKE RECIPE

Who doesn't love a slice of cheesecake!? This is why we had to share this recipe with you today! With almost half the amount of calories as your standard cheesecake but a whopping 3 times more protein, there isn’t a reason not to enjoy this slice of heaven.

Ingredients

  • 180g rolled oats
  • 4 Tablespoons runny honey 
  • 3 Tablespoons oil
  • 500g Quark
  • 100 Frozen/fresh mixed berries (thaw before use)
  • 2 Eggs

Preparation Time: 15 minutes | Cook Time: 1 hour 15 minutes

 

METHOD

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 180 degrees, gas mark 4.
  2. Firstly, you will need to prepare the base of your cheesecake. Lightly toast the oats in the oven on a baking tray for 10 minutes. Remove the oats and blend for 30 seconds until each oat flake has broken down in size.
  3. Add the oats to a bowl with melted coconut oil and half the honey. Mix until ingredients are combined. Empty oats in to an 8 inch non-stick cake tin and flatten down evenly covering the entire bottom of the tin.
  4. Bake the base for 15 minutes.
  5. Whilst the base is baking, start to prepare the cheesecake filling. Whisk together the eggs, egg whites, quark and the other half of the honey.
  6. Pour the cheesecake filling in to the baked oat base. Add the mixed berries to the filling and gently swirl so they are evenly separated.
  7. Bake the cheesecake for a further 50-60 minutes until the top turns slightly golden.
  8. Leave the cheesecake to completely cool in the cake tin for 2 hours. Remove from the tin, slice in to 8 pieces and serve with warm berries.
