Seven Layer Magic Cookie (Protein) Cheesecake Bars
If you love 7 layer magic cookie bars then you will love this version. Graham cracker crust topped with a vanilla protein cheesecake layer then topped off with chopped dates, chocolate chips, and unsweetened coconut. I could eat these all day, er’y day. and these bars offer whole grains from the graham crackers, healthy fats from the coconut, and some protein from the protein cheesecake layer 😉
  1. 1 cup crushed whole wheat Graham crackers (i made a homemade version but feel free to use what you like)
  2. 1-2 tbsp date caramel (dates mixed with water until smooth and creamy)
Protein Cheesecake filling
  1. 2 eggs
  2. 1/2 cup milk of choice
  3. 1 scoop vanilla quest nutrition protein powder
  1. 1/3 cup chopped dates
  2. 1/2 cup chocolate chips (I used amberlyn chocolates)
  3. 1/2 cup unsweetened coconut
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degree f and spray a small glass container. I used a 7x 5 x 1.5 inch glass container.
  2. Set aside. In a small bowl combine ingredients to make the protein cheesecake filling. Whisk well until super smooth and free of lumps.
  3. Set aside. In a larger bowl crush graham crackers and mix in the caramel.
  4. Mix until graham cracker crumbs are moistened and start to stick together. Press mixture into the bottom of your glass container.
  5. Pour cheesecake filling on top. Sprinkle half of your date crumbles, chocolate chips, and coconut on top.
  6. Repeat. Bake for 30-35 min until cheesecake mixture is fully cooked. Let cool overnight (or a couple hours) then enjoy.
