Campfire cravings? Beat them with this S’more Protein Cheesecake recipe! This healthy cheesecake is quick to prepare, packed with protein, and a delicious way to kick those s’mores cravings without a fire!
All you need for this recipe is a large bowl to mix your ingredients in, a cheesecake pan or dish, and an oven!
Add into a large mixing bowl 2 large whole eggs, 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract, 2 teaspoons of lemon juice, 1/4 cup of your choice sweetener, 2 scoops of a chocolate or vanilla protein powder, 1 teaspoon of light brown sugar, 2 containers of vanilla Greek yogurt, 1 tablespoon of peanut butter, 2/3 cup of miniature marshmallows, 1/2 teaspoon of ground cinnamon, 12 ounces of cream cheese, and 4 pieces of chopped up chocolate.
Mix all of those s’mores protein cheesecake ingredients together with a hand a mixer until smooth.
Don’t have a hand mixer? Let your cream cheese sit out for a bit to soften up before mixing.
Take out a 6×2 cheesecake pan like this, line it with some parchment paper for easy clean up, and pour your mix in. Your cheesecake mix should fill you pan almost all the way to the top.
If you’re using a larger or smaller pan/dish you’ll have to adjust your baking times accordingly. Thick? Add more time. Thin? Add less.
Top your s’mores protein cheesecake with 2 crushed up graham cracker sheets before the oven.
Put your cheesecake into the oven on 325F/162C for 30-35 minutes.
Drop your temperature to 200F/93C and bake for an additional 50-60 minutes.
Take your s’mores protein cheesecake out of the oven, let it cool for a bit, and wrap it up. I like to put mine in the fridge overnight to guarantee the best texture. Can’t wait that long? A few hours should be good enough!
Unwrap your cheesecake once cooled, top it with whatever you want like some protein frosting our S’mores Protein Peanut Butter, and cut it!
Diet tip? You can lower the sugar in the recipe by using a plain Greek yogurt and sugar free chocolate.

For sweetener, what are the options/suggestions? I like to use splenda but I wasn’t sure if I should use 1/4 cup of that since its extra sweet.
It really depends on what you want. Some people prefer more of a subtle sweetness and some want it really sweet. These days I actually prefer it less sweet so with something like splenda I might use even less than 1/4 cup. It’ll taste good regardless but start with a 1/4 and go from there – that’ll be your base from here on out with all cheesecakes!
I have what may be a silly question – I make your pumpkin protein cheesecake about every other week (AND LOVE IT) and thought I’d like to try some of your others but I noticed the S’mores, Cookies & Cream & Chocolate Chip one use a 6×2 pan instead of a 9’’ cake pan. Would it come out way to thin if I continued to use the same 9’’ cake pan I use for the pumpkin one? I also see they use less cream cheese and yogurt as well as not having the pumpkin puree, so it may just be smaller in general which is why a smaller pan is noted? I get 8 servings with the 9″ one. What changes could I make to it to use the 9″? Sorry for the crazy question.
Can you make these as mini cheesecakes, such as in mini aluminum pans or cupcake wrappers? If so, how would that change the bake time?
Yes, you can! The times will depends on their size but it should be cut down drastically for the most part. Check out my other mini recipe and base the times off that! 🙂
Thanks for sharing the recipe, it looks moist and delicious!
