Protein Cheesecake Tart
One of my favorite parts of cheesecake is the crust, anyone else? If so, then this cheesecake tart is going to rock your world! A thick, traditional cheesecake crust that’s butter and oil free, using Cocoa Bar Lemoncello instead (of course), making this cheesecake sinfully sweet, tangy and decadent, but for a fraction of the calories and fat. With over 10 grams of protein and only 155 calories per slice, feeling the urge and going for the second slice is a breeze macro speaking, and nutritionally exceptional as always. If you love cheesecake, then I’m certain you will love this!
100 grams Kodiak Cakes Buttermilk Pancake Mix
40 grams Lemoncello Spread
50 grams Brown Sugar Alternative
40 ml unsweetened almond milk

Combine all ingredients until crumbly, adding milk last. Press into a parchment paper lined or greased 8×8 round baking pan or dish. Preheat oven to 200 degrees. Once preheated, place crust in oven and increase heat to 350 and bake for 15 minutes. Let cool, then press down. Once completely cooled, the crust is ready to fill.
