Rich Chocolate Cookie Cheesecake (Gluten Free & Keto)

One thing is for sure, you can count on me to make no bake recipes no matter the season... they are just super convenient when it comes to meal prep! I even got my designated are in the freezer for all my snacks, including this one!


No bake gut friendly and delicious cheesecake! One of the best parts of this recipe is the no bake part... so basically is just mix, pour and refrigerate type of method, extremely easy! But these cheesecake bars are gut friendly since we are working with beef gelatin, ricotta cheese with probiotics and no gluten!



About these Rich Chocolate Cookie Cheesecake:

These are just a chocolate dream! But with that I also wanted to include a twist, a fun a de delicious twist by just adding some Siete Foods Chocolate Shortbread Cookies that I will add that cookie factor while keeping things gluten free and delicious!


To add that extra crunch factor of this recipe I also included some of the Marigold Almond Mocha Crunch Keto Bars, such a game changer! And it really brings up that extra taste of chocolate and that texture that takes these cheesecake bars to the next level.


Key Ingredients:

Adding some protein powder for extra creaminess and a satisfying filling. I have been also obsessed with the Marigold Rich Chocolate Whey Isolate, their ingredients are always gre best and the taste is always delicious too, this chocolate whey is basically a healthy, dreamy and indulgent chocolate milk shake (keto and gluten free!).



Cookies and chocolate, the crunch factor! These are simply perfect for meal prep, no need to bake anything at all to enjoy and attack that sweet tooth at any moment. The base is soft and the filling of these is creamy thanks the the organic ricotta cheese... also source of probiotics!


The base of the Cheesecake:

The base is made with simple ingredients, pea protein (or coconut flour) and almond flour to keep it nutrient dense and gluten free. Since we are not using any eggs we are using beef gelatin as our glue for these bars, it's just my favorite ingredients when it comes to no bake recipes.
