Caramel Chocolate Cheesecake Balls

Caramel Chocolate Cheesecake Balls

I saw a recipe for Tim Tam Cheesecake Balls and suddenly had a genius idea!

Goal:  "level-up" the recipe! My version has less calories, less sugar and more protein.

I'm a flexible dieter. I follow the 80/20 rule. 80% of what I eat on a daily basis is "healthy". The remaining 20% is at my discretion. This approach has worked very well for me since 2012 because I never feel deprived. I like that I don't have to feel guilty about my food choices. If I want a piece of cheesecake, then I can have a piece of cheesecake! If you want to learn more about my sustainable approach to nutrition, click here for my system!


Check-list:


Recipe:

This recipe yields 18 balls.

Please watch the video demonstration

  • Remove your light cream cheese from the fridge 1 hour before you make the recipe so that it is soft (it's easier to work with)
  • Process 3 BSN protein bars in a food processor until it resembles fine crumbs
  • Then add the package of cream cheese into the processor and whizz it to combine it with the crumbs.
  • Roll into 1 inch sized balls and place on a tray lined with baking paper in the fridge (or place the balls into the silicone cups).
  • You can eat immediately. Place the balls in the fridge, otherwise, freeze them and eat them another day. I would suggest 2 balls as a serving size (3 at the most).
