Method

 

1) First, prepare your cheesecake/cupcake moulds with a spray of oil and set aside
2) Then, remove the seeds from the dates and place the dates in a saucepan with the water. Cook the dates on a low heat until they start to produce a juice. Sieve out the juice and add into a large mixing bowl
3) Next, add the oats, protein powder, milk and honey into the mixing bowl and combine all of the ingredients together
4) Once combined,  place the mix into the oiled moulds. Ensure to flatten the mixture into the moulds to form the cheesecake base
5) Bake the bases for 10-12 minutes at 170°C. Keep an eye on them to ensure they don't burn. Once the bases are baked, leave them to cool for 30 minutes
6) While the bases cool, prep the cream cheese layer. Mix soft cheese, protein powder, Xylitol, vanilla extract and milk to form the cheesecake filling
7) Then, spread the cream cheese mix onto the cooled bases (whilst still in their moulds) and place into the freezer for 1-2 hours to set
8) Once set, top your cheesecakes with the Carb Killa® spread and any other decorations you fancy! Then, all that's left to do is demolish and enjoy!
