Are you a dessert lover? There’s always room for dessert…am I right? Try switching your dessert craving to our healthy cheesecake instead. Because, the average cheesecake recipe comes in at over 450 kcals, 31 grams of fat and 15 grams of sugar per slice. This means it is very easy to undo all of your hard work with just one bite.

We are only given one life so it’s very important to enjoy it, and life is too short not to have a piece of cake and eat it! By switching the normal digestive biscuit base to oats and walnuts, you are not only adding protein, you are also using slow releasing carbohydrates which will help to ensure your blood sugar levels do not spike. These small adjustments help you to sustain a healthy balanced life.
