Skinny Peanut Butter Cheesecake
Yields: 10 slices (one 9" cheesecake)
 
This cheesecake is smooth and creamy with a sweet peanut butter taste. Cover and store any leftovers in the refrigerator for up to one week.
  • 7 sheets (109g) chocolate graham crackers
  • 1 tbsp (14g) unsalted butter, melted
  • 3 large egg whites, room temperature
  • 3 (8oz) blocks fat-free cream cheese, room temperature
  • ½ c (96g) granulated sugar
  • 2 tbsp (30mL) nonfat milk
  • ½ c (128g) Better’n Peanut Butter
  • 1 c (96g) PB2
  • ½ tbsp (3g) cornstarch
  • 1 tbsp (15mL) vanilla extract
  • chocolate syrup, for serving
  1. Preheat the oven to 300°, and lightly coat a 9” springform pan with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. To prepare the crust, add the graham crackers to a food processor, and pulse until they turn into fine crumbs. Mix together the graham cracker crumbs, butter, and 1 egg white in a small bowl. Press the mixture into the bottom and slightly up the sides of the prepared pan. Bake at 300° for 8 minutes, then cool completely.
  3. To prepare the filling, beat the cream cheese and sugar in a medium bowl until smooth and creamy. Beat in the milk, Better’n Peanut Butter and PB2. Add in the remaining egg whites, cornstarch, and vanilla, mixing well.
  4. Spread the filling on top of the cooled crust, and bake at 300° for 28-33 minutes, or until the center barely jiggles when shaken. Cool completely to room temperature before covering with plastic wrap, ensuring that it touches the top of the cheesecake, and chill for at least 8 hours. Just before serving, drizzle each slice with chocolate syrup.
Notes: For a gluten-free crust, I recommend either these chocolate grahams or these chocolate cookies with the cream centers removed.

I have not tried this cheesecake with any other peanut butter products and do not know how best to substitute them.

For a low-sugar version, granulated sucralose may be substituted in place of the sugar. I haven’t tried any other sugar substitutes.
