Chocolate and cashew cream mini cheesecake

So, if you read my review featuring the vega brand (here), you might recall that I said I had a little baking experiment with the vega protein. Well, here is that recipe: Chocolate and cashew cream mini cheesecakes!

These came out pretty amazing, if I do say so myself. Not only is vega protein (check out the vega protein here))
baked right into the crust but the crust is also made with black beans! But guess what? You can’t even taste them so you’ll never even remember they’re in there which makes it the perfect way to get some extra fiber and protein into your dessert as well as some iron, potassium, calcium, and magnesium.
