Protein Peanut Butter Cheese Cake BigOven - Save recipe or add to grocery list Yum
Flour-less and protein cakes are the best treats ever! When I have cravings I imagine all sort of sweets and cakes which could be between 500-800kcal a piece! Yep! Some people don´t even imagine that some small piece would be that caloric!

When I have time and patience I rather bake something myself. I´m a fan of easy recipes, that´s why I created this blog 🙂 But I do love traditional cheese cakes! So I decided to look for some great recipes… I found one inspiration.. Michael Kory shares on youtube one of his protein baking treats.. Protein Cheesecake!

I adjusted this recipe and used ingredients I found in Germany and this cake just turned out awesome! Healthier version of creamy, awesome, chocolate and peanut butter cheese cake!

This recipe contains peanut butter (which I love so much) so it obviously adds on the calories. One piece contains 210 kcal, out of which only 50 kcal comes from the peanut butter. So if you´d like to snack on something less caloric, go ahead and substitute peanut butter with something different like coffee or caramel 🙂 Or just simply leave it without any additional ingredient. Next time I´m going to try a less caloric version.

Recipe Notes

Preparation:

  1. Warm the oven for 180 degrees Celsius (350 Fahrenheit). Prepare a round baking form (22cm big). Mix all ingredients in a mixer (except chocolate chips), add the chocolate chips at the end.I added milk to the mixture because it was too thick to process the batter in a blender.
  2. Place a parchment paper on the the baking form and spread the batter evenly. Bake in the oven for about 45 minutes. Afterwards, let it cool for about 2 hours and then refrigerate for an hour or two until it´s possible to cut it into slices. The picture below is freshly made cake taken right out of the oven.
  3. I recommend to prepare some topping for the cake. I used 1 tbsp quark mixed with 1 tsp honey. You can also top it with strawberries or any type of fruits you like. I think strawberries would suit the best. You can also make a fresh strawberry sauce and pour it over the cake .

Tip for the strawberry sauce: blend couple of strawberries with 1 tbsp of lemon juice if you like more sour option for the topping! I bet it´s a great combination!
