Breakfast Food Friday Week 7 – Picture Link Up

I mentioned this high protein, high fiber cheesecake breakfast tart on Monday and now it’s finally time to share the recipe! 

Inspired by Laura & Tessa.

High Protein Cheesecake Breakfast Tart


For the base / crust:

  • 1 serving high fiber cereal (I used Trader Joe’s), 2/3 cup
  • 1/2 scoop MRM vanilla whey (or another protein powder)
  • 1 Tbsp ground flaxseed
  • 1 Tbsp almond milk
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon

For the topping:

  • 1/4 cup fat free cottage cheese
  • 1 Tbsp almond milk
  • 3-4 drops vanilla stevia, or another sweetener + 1/4 tsp vanilla

  1. Combine crust ingredients in a blender / food processor / magic bullet. 
  2. Spread crust mixture into a thin layer on a dish or in a bowl.  Refrigerate.
  3. Blend topping ingredients until smooth.
  4. Spread evenly on top of crust mixture and return to refrigerator for at least 15 minutes (or the freezer for 5 if you can’t wait).

Top with fruit or granola and enjoy!
