I added protein to this simple, 5 ingredient, No-Bake Biscoff cheesecake and got 29 grams of protein in this yummy dessert.Jump to Recipe
The nutrition info for this high protein, creamy Biscoff Cheesecake is; 359 calories, 29 g protein, 32 g carbs , 15g fat, and 14 weight watchers personal points.
I’m always looking for a way to include a protein treat every afternoon. My current plan is that I have three meals a day, and one mid-afternoon protein snack or treat. This has been working great for me. I feel like I never go too long between meals, yet at the same time, I’m not eating or grazing all day. (here’s a template for my current meal plan)
And the protein treat is a great way to help me hit my goal of 100g of protein or more per day. (get a list of protein ideas here)
Anyway, if you love Biscoff, you LOVE Biscoff. Biscoff fans can be passionate. Biscoff has a rich caramel flavor with some spices I can’t quite identify. It almost tasting like burnt caramel to me, or even burnt gingerbread).
And, regarding Biscoff…I learned something new! Biscoff cookies were named from the brand by combining the words biscuit and coffee! (Fun fact!) (source)
Calories in Biscoff Cookies
Although on the packaging, a serving is 2 cookies, I’ll share what the calories and macros are for only 1 Biscoff cookie. One cookie equals.
- 35 calories
- 0.5 g protein
- 5.5 g carbs
- 1.5 g fat
- 3 g sugar
- and 27 mg sodium
Again, the packaging is labeled as 2 tablespoons per serving. But, if you can practice portion control and only eat 1 tablespoon of Biscoff Cookie Butter, the calories and macros you’ll get are
- 85 calories
- 0.5 g protein
- 8.5 g carbs
- 5.5 g fat
- 5.5 g sugar
- and 33 mg sodium
Making Biscoff Cheesecake
I have a few creamy, no-bake cheesecake recipes on this site, and I love them all! This cheesecake is similar, but I used cherry pie filling and apple pie. For this cheesecake, I used the Biscoff cookie butter and I modified the crust to include some crushed Biscoff cookies.
Adding the protein powder and using the Greek yogurt is what packed in the protein at 29 grams of protein. Don’t use a full scoop of vanilla protein powder. I think it starts to taste less cream cheesy, which is what you want for a cheesecake.
And finally, I had to use 1/3 reduced fat cream cheese. I just can’t find the fat free cream cheese anymore. It’s rare that I do. But, if we could use fat free cream cheese, you’d save a few calories for sure!
