Who doesn’t love cheesecake? I LOVE cheesecake and couldn’t wait to share this healthy recipe with you!
This healthy cheesecake recipe slashes the calories from regular cheesecakes by almost half and it’s packed with protein, calcium, soluble fibre & natural sweetness!
This recipe uses oats as the base which are packed with soluble fibre and release their energy slowly, along with coconut oil and honey, which is a natural sweetener. The topping is made up of low-fat cream cheese and eggs and tastes so creamy you’d never guess it wasn’t the ‘real deal’! A large slice (1/8th of the cake) comes it at just 225 calories.. with most regular cheese cakes coming in at between 400 and 500 calories(!).
You can top your cheesecake with whatever you fancy – I added blueberries & chocolate flakes.. a touch of chocolate never hurt anyone 😉 .. do let me know if you make this recipe too!
P.S. To make this recipe you will need a 20cm loose bottomed cake pan such as this one!

- 3 eggs (separated)
- 6 tbsp granulated sweetener**
- 1-2 tsp vanilla

- Pre heat your oven to 180 degrees C

- Whisk together the cream cheese, egg YOLKS, granulated sweetener & vanilla until smooth.
- In a separate bowl whisk together the egg WHITES until stiff (you should be able to flip the bowl upside down and they don't fall out!).. before folding this into the cream cheese mix.
- Pour your toppings over the oat & honey base and bake for 30-40 minutes until firm to the touch & golden.
- Allow to cool slightly before chilling it in the fridge & topping with your favourite fruit. Then slice into 8 pieces & enjoy!
