Protein Cheesecake

I absolutely love cheesecake.

Unfortunately, cheesecake is not necessarily the healthiest thing to eat. Which is reason why I only have it when my Aunt makes it for the holidays, or if I happen to go to the Cheesecake Factory (which is very rare).

Well, now you can have cheesecake every day. 

Why?
Because I just made it healthy for you.

I’ve been seeing this “famous” cheesecake all over instagram lately, and I’ve been meaning to try it. It’s called Pro-cheesecake (short for Protein Cheesecake). The original recipe can be found under the hash-tag #procheesecakerecipe, and there are numerous variations to make.

Today, I’m going to present to you my variation using MyOatmeal Cake Batter PB Lean. PB Lean is dehydrated peanut butter powder that has 85% less calories from fat. It mixes with water, yogurt, protein shakes or any other kind of liquid you desire. You can even bake with it such as muffins, pancakes, and cheesecake!
