Healthy Cookie Dough Cheesecake Bites (No-Bake, Vegan and Gluten-Free)

Hello chocolate lovers! This is a healthy version of Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough and Cheesecake combined. I made this recipe with whole, natural ingredients!

Yes, this is still a treat but it is a healthy treat that your body will know how to process. Not only that, this recipe contains healthy fats, lots of fiber, protein, vitamins and minerals. I did use some dark chocolate in this recipe but sparingly.

Keep in mind that the recommended portions of these treats are small to keep you on tract with your weight loss or lean body goals. Yes you can have a treat and still reach your physique goals!

David, my kitchen taste-tester, said that these are now his all-time favourite DAMY Treat! And believe me, he has tasted a lot of treats out of this kitchen!

Have you checked out my other healthy cheesecake bites? I have seriously created a new genre of healthy dessert. There are more to come this week but until then check these out:

Please enjoy this treat as a healthy option for Valentine’s Day or just as your next indulgence. Let me know in the comments below how much you love them!

    I added some extra chocolate chips(about 1/2 cup extra), took out the flax seeds and substituted sliced almonds for them. I also used cream cheese substitute by Tofutti that is 60 calories per 2 tablespoons. When I did my calculations per 18 servings the calories per bite come to about 170 calories a piece. 
    I will say while the recipe was good the peanut butter taste was OVERLOAD. All I tasted in the crust was peanutbutter.

    Also, I found freezing overnight to be over-kill. You could easily freeze this maybe… 3 hours just to set, let it sit on the counter about 20 minutes then cut. Cutting this while frozen was a B****. Also the topping itself was severely lacking. Barely covered the crust. To tweak if I make it again, I’ll use 1/4 extra cream cheese and Greek yogurt. I’m just storing it in the fridge. Frozen was just way too cold and it seemed to make the topping taste strange/watery.

    I like the “crust”, but did I do something wrong b/c the topping didn’t seem to have much flavor?

    • http://www.damyhealth.com Amy Layne

      Sounds like something was off.

  • Erin Baugher

    Could i freeze these so that i could spread out my treats?

    • http://www.damyhealth.com Amy Layne

      Yes!

  • beggse
