With only 30 minutes of preparation time and a whopping 47 grams of protein per serving, it’s an ideal treat for those on a fitness journey. Here’s how to make this delightful dessert.

Low Carb High Protein Oreo Cheesecake:

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup cottage cheese
  • 1 scoop protein powder (cookies and cream, chocolate, or vanilla)
  • 1 teaspoon sweetener (Boca Sweet or your favorite)
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 to 1 teaspoon coconut oil or butter (for greasing and the mixture)
  • 2 no sugar added chocolate and cream cookies (like Donkey’s or Leo’s)
  • Zero sugar ready whip (for topping)

Instructions:

1. Preheat and Prepare: Start by preheating your toaster oven to 350 degrees. You can also use a regular oven, but the toaster oven is perfect for small batches.

2. Mix the Cheesecake Base: In a mixing bowl, combine the following ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup cottage cheese
  • 1 scoop of protein powder. IsoPure Zero Carb in cookies and cream flavor works great, but you can also use chocolate or vanilla.
  • 1 teaspoon of your favorite sweetener. Boca Sweet is an excellent choice.
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 to 1 teaspoon of coconut oil or butter. This helps in binding the mixture and adding a touch of richness.

3. Blend Until Smooth: Blend all the ingredients together until you achieve a smooth consistency. This can be done in a blender or using a hand mixer for ease.

4. Prepare the Ramekin: Lightly coat the bottom and sides of a ramekin with coconut oil or butter to prevent sticking. Pour the cheesecake mixture into the prepared ramekin.

5. Bake the Cheesecake: Bake in the preheated toaster oven at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes. Keep an eye on it as it bakes. The cheesecake should puff up and turn golden and fluffy.

6. Cool the Cheesecake: Once baked, let the cheesecake cool on a wire rack for 10 to 15 minutes. This cooling period is crucial to set the cheesecake properly.

7. Prepare the Oreo Topping: While the cheesecake is cooling, prepare your cookies. Use two no sugar added chocolate and cream cookies. Donkey’s brand is a favorite, but Leo’s is also great.

  • Place the cookies in a Ziploc bag and crush them. You can use a rolling pin to crush them finely or leave them a bit chunky, depending on your preference.

8. Add the Toppings: Once the cheesecake has cooled, top it with half of the crushed cookies. Add a generous swirl of zero sugar ready whip. Sprinkle the remaining crushed cookies on top.

9. Serve and Enjoy: Your low-carb, high-protein Oreo cheesecake is ready to be devoured. Enjoy this guilt-free dessert that’s not only delicious but also aligns with your health goals.
