Take out a large bowl, add all of your ingredients into it, and then mix everything together (using a hand mixer makes things a lot easier). Line a 6×2 cake pan with some parchment paper, pour your mix in, and then put it into the oven on 325°F/162°C for 30:00-35:00. After 30:00-35:00 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!


  • Use a chocolate protein powder for more of a chocolate taste!
  • Use plain Greek yogurt to cut down on the sugar in the recipe!
  • Top it with whatever you want before the oven!
