It’s National Coffee day so why not put the coffee cup down and instead celebrate with this mocha and salted caramel cheesecake? I once again used my Jamie eason protein (check it out here) and it worked wonderfully in this recipe.
This beautiful layered cheesecake is not only delicious but also super nutrient dense so it’s a great alternative to traditional cheesecake. These babies are packed with protein and fiber thanks to not only the protein but also garbanzo beans which are baked right into the crust. Middle layer is a coffee cream and top layer is a chocolate and salted caramel cream. The combination of all of the layers is to die for!
Now let’s observe this cheesecake in its natural habitat. Ain’t it a beaut?

*pro tip: make your own salted caramel peanut butter by combining date caramel with some peanut butter until smooth and creamy!
Combine ingredients in a food processor to make you crust. Press into 3 mini spring forms and set aside. In 2 separate bowls, combine ingredients to make cream layers. Layer your coffee cream then top with your chocolate and salted caramel cream. Bake at 350 for about 40 minutes. Let cool then let sit overnight to allow it to firm up. Enjoy next day!

I used my favorite protein powder, Jamie Eason Lean Body for Her, as it is super creamy and flavorful! You can peruse her protein powder and other products here: click me!
