Crustless Blackberry Protein Mini Cheesecakes: Some good news and some bad news. As always, the good news first: this recipe is so easy that it’s verging on ridiculous. The bad news? It’s so good that, unless your elders taught you well and you’ve turned into the sharing kind, you may just end up hiding the Tupperware and eating them all. Which is not terrible news I suppose because, well, check out the ingredients:
1 small tub of 0% Total Greek yogurt
2 tablespoons quark (or cottage cheese)
1 tablespoon coconut flour
1/4 cups mulberries (or any other dried berry, or even a dry fig, or a couple of medjools)
2 fresh organic eggs
1/4 cup vanilla whey protein powder
1 cup fresh blackberries
1. Blend the yogurt, quark, coconut flour, mulberries, eggs, and vanilla protein together.
2. Try out the batter and add sweetener if needed.
3. When desired level of sweetness has been attained, add 1 cup of fresh blackberries (or raspberries or maybe even cherries) and mix them in with a fork or spoon instead of blending.
4. Bake at 170 celsius for about 35 minutes.
5. When finished, take out and let cool.

Flip them out of the baking mould and feel the madness take over as you bite into it and the berries simply explode in your mouth. It’s fantastic.

These look amazing! Just a quick question, can oat flour be used instead (or omitted completely). Also, how much is in a “tub” of yogurt? Again can’t wait to try these!
Oat flour instead of coconut flour? probably! it will yield a different consistency but I think it’d work just fine! And about the yogurt, sorry I just updated it to read 170g tub of 0% Total Greek yogurt :-)))
as usual, you’ve outdone yourself Anna. wow those look really good.
Thanks Christina you sweeeeetie!
Anna, where do you source you coconut flour?
I made these last weekend and even though the taste was very good, the consistency was more cakey than cheesecakey. I even had to take them out of the oven sooner (maybe after only 20′). I used the ingredients as you say, only left out the dried fruit because I didn’t have any at home. Any ideas on what I might have done wrong? I’ll try this recipe again today. It’s great for breakfast or to take it with me at work 🙂
I made these again today. I used ON casein vanilla instead of whey and baked them for about 15′. This time they were delicious!
This might be a silly question but is there no need for baking powder?
Made these last night! I subbed blueberries for blackberries, and used a scoop of vanilla MPI (80% casein 20% whey) as the protein component. Yum! I think I will use less berries next time though, it was a little watery.
I just finished making this and added Goji berries instead of mulberries & I must say it was freaking awesome! Next time, I will try it with fresh berries. And by next time, I mean tomorrow.
Thank u so much for this Anna! I shared your recipe on my blog today: http://blogilates.com/recipe-index/best-protein-cheesecake-recipe-how-to-ride-a-mechanical-bull
Awesome! yours turned out amazing! I love that they’re in a post about mechanical bull riding too hehe! Much Love! xoxoxo
I have tried ON vanilla whey in a lot of baking stuff…muffins…pancakes…cake…and it always turns out so so so so dry and like foam. Does it not do that to THIS recipe, have you found that it does that in other recipes but not this one. A friend of mine told me that whey isolate is better to back with and it’s not as dry. What am I doing wrong? Everything I bake with whey, I end up throwing away because it’s like foam 🙁
Hi Kat, try it. You see, whey DOES tend to get all rubbery and weird UNLESS you offset it right. To do this, you just got to make sure you have a lot of thickening ingredients in there so… a cooked sweet potato, cottage cheese or, in this case yogurt + quark does the trick. I would ACTUALLY say that whey concentrate is better than isolate to bake with but seriously, ON vanilla should work just fine (I use that one a lot). Try it out with the yogurt and stuff and remember: proportionally speaking, you want your whey to be no more than 1/2 of your batter, ideally 1/4th!
by blend, do you mean blender/mixer or stir in by hand?? is the dried fruit in the mix supposed to remain whole? thanks!! :))
I blend using a handheld blender but you can use any blender you have and the fruit yeah its meant to stay whole (so add it at the end!) otherwise you would just get a big purple cheesecake with no fruit to be seen 🙂
how many little cakes do you have in the end?
