Healthy low carb cheesecake

Cheesecake has always been one of my favorite cakes but usually it's loaded with a ton of sugar and fat. So not even a little bit healthy. But hey, you can also enjoy cheesecake without the guilt

Looks like cheesecake, tastes like cheesecake..Must be cheesecake


Ingredients for a small cheesecake (18cm baking pan):

  1. For the crust:

    • 45 g ground almonds

    • 40 g chopped almonds

    • 1 whole egg plus 1 additional eggwhite

    • 30 g stevia or sweetener of your choice

    • Natural Vanilla and a bit cinnamon

  2. For the filling:

    • 300g  low fat cream cheese
    • 300 g low fat curd/ Quark
    • 1 scoop of vanilla whey protein
    • 2 eggs, 1 additional eggwhite
    • Stevia or sweetener until sweet enough
    • a little bit of natural lemon zest

Instructions:

  1. Mix the ingredients for the crust
  2. Bake at 180 degree for about 12-15 minutes
  3. In the meantime, mix the ingredients for the filling.
    1. If you Beat the eggwhites separated and fold in afterwards, the cake gets more fluffy and creamy
  4. Bake again for 30 minutes until slightly golden
  5. Let cool down and rest in the fridge over night
  6. Enjoy :)

Tip:  Top with no sugar chocolate sauce and fresh berries. For the chocolate sauce, just mix 2-3 spoons of baking cocoa, add a little bit sweetener and 1 spoon of water. Mix, ready to serve. It will satisfy every chocolate monster


If you are always on the run and eating from plastic containers, while sitting in the metro, carrying around a piece of cakes might not be the best idea. Especially if you don't want to eat cake crumble ;) (happened to me so many times). 

So Instead of using a baking pan, simply bake your crust and fillings in small glass jars. If you do it that way, you can easily prepare your cake for a few days and grab a glass from the fridge if you need one. No cutting, containering et cetera. For more easy peasy grab and go snacks and desserts, head to the in a jar recipe section.
