- Prep: 35 mins
- Cook: 40 mins
1 hr 15 mins
- Yields: 4 Servings
200 g Muscle Food hazelnut high protein biscuits (or sub for light digestives)
50 g coconut oil
100 g Muscle Mousse chocolate or peanut choc caramel
1 tbsp Muscle Food Prutella (or sub for regular Nutella)
1Preheat the oven to 180’c
2Place the biscuits in a blender and blend until finely crushed. Alternatively put them in a sandwich bag and hit them with a rolling pin. Melt the coconut oil in the microwave for 1 minute, then pour it over the crushed biscuits. Stir this together until the crushed biscuits are fully coated.
3Pour the mixture into an 8inch loose bottomed cake tin and press the mixture down as tightly as you can. In a separate bowl mix together the quark, cream cheese and Muscle Mousse. Beat it as hard as you can to ensure there are no lumps of powder. Pour the mixture on top of the biscuit base and level it out.
4Bake on a middle shelf for 30 minutes. The top should not colour, if it does turn the oven down slightly. You still want the middle of your cheesecake to ‘wobble’ when you take it out of the oven, don’t wait until it is fully set as it will set further once it is chilled.
5Remove from the oven and allow the cheesecake to come to room temperature before chilling in the fridge for a minimum of 4 hours before removing from the tin.
6Finish by spreading on the Prutella and sprinkling over the chopped hazelnuts.
