Take out a large bowl, add all of your ingredients into it, and then mix everything together. Line a 6×2 cake pan with some parchment paper, pour your mix in, and then top it with whatever you want (if anything). Put it into the oven on 325°F/162°C for 30:0035:00. After 30:0035:00 drop your temperature to 200°F/93°C for another 50:00-60:00. Take your cheesecake out, let it cool, wrap it up, and then put it into the fridge overnight (or a couple hours if you can’t wait that long). Mouthgasm!

Tips:

  • Top it with some of my peanut butter protein frosting and jelly!
  • Use plain Greek yogurt to cut down on the sugar in the recipe!

  • Hi Derek

    So I made this using chocolate PB2 (45g powder) and chocolate protein powder. It turned out really well. The middle was especially creamy but as I got further and further to the outside the texture changed and was not as moist – almost a bit of a dry/crumbly mouth feel. Do you think next time I shouldn’t cook it as long to avoid this? I cooked it for 30min at 162C and then 60min at 93C. What would you recommend?

    Thank you so much for this recipe though! It’s nice to indulge in a high protein dessert that’s low in calories but still decadent enough to leave you feeling like you just ate something naughty. Can’t wait to try your other protein cheesecakes!
