About these Chocolate Hazelnut Macaroon Cheesecake:
Okay, so these are a major combo of flavors and textures that will not only make someone else feel the love, buy your tastebuds will also fall in love! Coconut, a creamy cheese filling and hazelnut spread for a major flavorful experience. Hard to resist!
For the base of this recipe I used a mix of keto coconut macaroons, one of my mom's favorites (and mine too!) with some low carb plant based protein, the one that I usually use is Nuzest. The vanilla pea protein along with the coconut macaroons is just perfect and it really creates that delicious base for our creamy filling.
From the protein and the healthy fats from the coconut, factor or nutrient density and flavor is the chocolate! Okay, apart from these being delicious, healthy and surprisingly indulgent these little pies are packed with some antioxidants; hello chocolate!
The perfect afternoon snack, dessert or companion to your latte or tea, no matter if you are with a picky eater! This is a delicious, sweet, fun and nutrient dense fun pie that might be on repeat all summer long!

Low Carb Hazelnut Spread (used OWN)
You can even add some collagen powder to add some gut health too! For the lower carb and healthier chocolate hazelnut spread I simply used OWN; it's just great for this recipe, melts to well and the taste is just perfect!
The sweetness in this recipe is from Lakanto, my favorite sugar substitute that doesn't leave a weird after-taste. It's so so irresistible and makes it even more fun!
