Breakfast Cheesecake – 4 Smart Points

Cheesecake is one of my favourite foods ever. So when I saw a recipe for a breakfast cheesecake, I had to try it, even though it sounded a bit weird. However, with so much soft cheese and sugar, it was pretty high in Smart Points value so here’s my recipe for a slimmed down version.

Servings: 10

Smart Points: 4 per serving

What you need:

  • 75g low fat spread
  • 650g low fat soft cheese
  • 2 eggs
  • 60g oats
  • juice and rind of one orange
  • 4 tablespoons sweetener (I used Stevia)
  • pinch of salt

What to do:

  1. Heat the oven to 170C/Gas Mark 3. Line a 23cm springform tin with baking paper.
  2. Beat the cheese until smooth then stir in the rest of the ingredients using 1tbsp of the orange juice.
  3. Scrape the mixture into the prepared tin and bake for about 25 minutes until it is just set with a hint of wobbliness in the middle.
  4. Serve hot, warm, cold or at room temperature with fruit coulis.

Top Tip: For ease, I line the baking tin roughly by pushing in a rectangular sheet of paper. It gives the cheesecake slices a ‘rustic’ look but saves faffing about cutting out strips and circles of paper.
