Craving cheesecake? Love cookies & cream? It’s time to try a Cookies & Cream Protein Cheesecake! This high protein cheesecake recipe takes just minutes to prep, is packed with great macros, and guaranteed to beat your Oreo cravings!
You’ll need a large mixing bowl, something to mix your ingredients with like a hand mixer, and a cheesecake pan.
Start by adding right into your mixing bowl 2 large whole eggs, 1 1/2 teaspoons of vanilla extract, 1/4 cup of your choice sweetener, 1/2 teaspoon of lemon juice, 12 ounces of cream cheese, 2 containers of vanilla Greek yogurt, 2 tablespoons of marshmallow fluff, 1 tablespoon of melted chocolate chips, and 2 scoops of a vanilla protein powder.
Bored? Switch this cookies & cream protein cheesecake up by using a chocolate protein powder for more of a chocolate cookie taste!
Mix all of those ingredients together for a couple minutes or until smooth. If you don’t have a hand mixer for this step you can let your cream cheese sit out for a bit before you add it in and it’ll soften up/mix easier.
Cookies & Cream Cheesecake
Take out a 6×2 cheesecake pan, line it with some parchment paper, and pour your mix in. You should have enough mix to fill your entire pan.
Do you need a 6×2 cheesecake pan? No but if you’re using anything other than a 6×2 pan you’ll have to adjust your baking times. Bigger? Add more time. Smaller? Add less time.
Crush up 9 mini cookies on top of your cookies & cream protein cheesecake and put your cheesecake into the oven on 325F/162C for 25-30 minutes.
Turn your oven down to 200F/93C after 25-30 minutes and bake it for an additional 50-60 minutes.
Let your cookies & cream protein cheesecake cool, wrap it up, and put it in the fridge overnight!

Do I need to change the recipe if I’m making this in a 9″ pan?
Hey Derek, long time fan (bb forums)
I ordered two tubs of your protein on launch day, it doesn’t specify a flavor. My question is it would I need to add something to it when making this recipe? – recipe calls for vanilla protein-
Hey Pablo! Thanks for your support man. The powder is mostly unflavored with a hint of vanilla. The ratio I would use for flavoring is 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract per 1 scoop for vanilla protein powder and 1-2 tablespoons of cocoa powder per 1 scoop for chocolate protein powder. This is obviously dependent on how strong you want the flavor but this works best for me! I hope this helps.
i absolutely love this ..i make it every week.. keeps my sweet tooth at bay
Derek please help!! How can I replace marshmallow fluff??
Make some of homemade marshmallow fluff with marshmallows!
