There’s nothing quite like campfire s’mores…until today! These S’mores Cheesecake Protein Cupcakes are delicious, macro friendly, easy to make, and you don’t need any wood!

Did I mention they come with a crust too?

Cheesecake Crust

To make your quick crust all you need to do is add into a bowl 1/4 cup of coconut flour, 1/4 cup of almond flour, and 2 tablespoons of melted butter.

Mix those together until you end up with a “clumpy” mix.

Continue by taking out a pan and some silicone cups, which are great for this recipe. You can use any pan here but a muffin or cupcake pan will obviously work the best!

All you need to do here is to add your crust into the bottom of your silicone cups and press down firmly to pack them in.

If you want a “crunchier” crust you can put them in the oven on 350F/176C for around 10 minutes. This step is optional.

S’mores Cheesecake Cupcakes Mix

For your s’mores cheesecake cupcake mix you’ll need to add into another bowl 1 large egg, 2 tablespoons of a sweetener, 1 1/2 teaspoons of vanilla extract, 1 scoop of protein powder, and 8 ounces of a reduced or fat free cream cheese.

Use a hand mixer and mix everything together until smooth. You can mix everything together without a hand mixer too, it’ll just a take a bit longer and give you a free workout!

Tip? Let you cream cheese soften up a bit before mixing and it’ll make life easier!

Evenly distribute your mix into your silicone cups, filling them about 3/4 of the way full.

On the tops of your s’mores cheesecake protein cupcakes before the oven, sprinkle on a little cocoa powder. I like to cut this in with a knife and top each cupcake with a few chocolate chips.

Bake them on 350F/176C for 10-12 minutes.

Take them out and top each cupcake with 1 marshmallow (use your hands to tear them in half).

Put them back in the oven for around 5 minutes on 350F/176C or until your marshmallows have browned!

    is there a way to make this crust better? i tried it this weekend and the cheesecake part came out great but the crust was COMPLETELY 100% crumbly…never stuck at all

      Brad – what’s up man? Did you try pre-baking the crust? That will fix that issue real quick!
