Strawberry Cheesecake Cookies (Low Carb, Gluten & Dairy Free)

Glad that cheesecake and cookies are a whole year long trendy recipe because these will be on repeat all year long! Specially when we are adding that touch of chocolate and strawberries. These only have 5.9 net carbs per serving, free from dairy and gluten and packed with all the flavors!


Well, just when we thought cookies couldn't get better this recipe popped into my mind, it was now some time since I wanted to bake some cookies and out of the sudden strawberry season is here! Chocolate and cream cheese is just part of my DNA so it also sounded right to be included in this recipe.



About these Strawberry Cheesecake Cookies:

We are keeping it very simple, flavorful and nourishing. For the cookie base I simply used Organifi Vanilla Complete Protein, also vegan and organic! To make these gluten free and low carb... plus it adds such a good flavor!


Protein powder, specially plant-based ones have been my hack when it comes to making recipes more flavorful and satisfying thanks to the protein content, plus is makes the recipes low carb too! The perfect combination for steady glucose levels!



The filling is a creamy and flavorful combination of dairy free cream cheese along with some granulated monk fruit. And as toppings I simply added those strawberries and chocolate pieces that are also low carb.



Overall, these are the ingredients needed for these Strawberry Cheesecake Cookies:



Jojo's is one of my favorite low carb chocolate when it comes to desserts and baked goods because it bakes and melts lovely. Plus the taste is delicious, it doesn't leave you a weird aftertaste!


For this recipe I used the Raspberry Dream that just adds that extra nutty touch and berry flavor that just takes this recipe to the next level. You can also use PURELYHL for Jojo's discount!



The full instructions will be below along with the nutritional information per serving. A good low carb and high protein recipe that will be even a good snack or treat for any time of the day!


Overall this recipe is:

  • Low Carb

  • Dairy Free

  • Gluten Free

  • Meal Prep Friendly

  • Delicious!




The end result

Ah! These are fantastic, the chocolate with the cream cheese is just an epic topping and amazing combination of flavors! Along with the nuts from the Jojo's chocolate and berries included this is a fiesta to your taste buds.


A great recipe to feed a crowd since it's easy to make and it makes 12 cookie cups. These will impress your guests, or even for yourself! I didn't share these baddies, they were delicious!
