Peanut Butter Protein Cheesecake: Low Carb and Gluten Free

A sugar free cheesecake which makes your taste buds dance with joy! Low carb and high in protein, you can indulge without the guilt! Note this is not a low calorie dessert, but when it comes to calories it’s quality that counts, this is filled with healthy fats and protein with a bunch of nutrients! I use my favourite grass-fed protein powder by Pro-Matrix (Wild Whey). Did I mention is so so tasty!
