My sister complained that all my dessert posts include chocolate. And she is right! I love chocolate and I realized that when someone mentions dessert, my mind always pictures something chocolaty.
I struggled a lot to find a clean recipe that doesn’t include my favorite ingredient. I am sure there are plenty of recipes out there but I am not familiar with them. I will get to experiment though from now on because this one turned out so good!
I am sure you will love it! It’s full of protein and healthy fats.
You can add any toppings you want.. You can berries, fruits (or chocolate) as a topping. Just make sure, if you are using berries to add them after you take it out of the oven. This healthy version of cheesecake it’s really yummy!
Ok, I will stop typing now and just give you the recipe.
