I’ve never been a big chocolate lover. I know, I know… what’s wroooong with me? But lately since I’ve started to bake myself and had the possibility to make my own chocolate recipes I’ve definitely changed my mind. I’ve never turned down a pieces of chocolate, but I’ve never ever made anything with chocolate for breakfast or even ordered any chocolate desserts. I’ve always felt they were too heavy, too sweet or to chocolaty. But the great thing with baking yourself is you get to set the rules. And when I’m creating recipe I really try to make them easy to adapt according to different preferences. I like my chocolate desserts to have a bit of sweetness, but just a hint. They should be quite rich on the chocolate, but it shouldn’t be the only flavor you can taste. I also prefer them more light, not having the feeling your gonna get into a food coma after eating it. And this chocolate cheesecake tartlet has all of that if you ask me. The crust is made with oats, dates, cacao powder, fiber syrup and coconut oil. The delicious chocolate cheesecake filling is rich yet light and doesn’t get too heavy. It’s made using cottage cheese and greek yogurt, which makes it creamy and delicious yet not too heavy or overwhelming.
A few tips:
- Make sure to use juicy dates and not the dryer once. If they are a bit dry place them in a bowl and pour hot boiling water over them and let them soften for 10 minutes or so.
- This cheesecake filling is versatile and can easily be adapted to different preferences. You can easily add some more sweetener or even chocolate if you want to.
- If you prefer it more like a regular cheesecake you can use creme cheese instead of cottage cheese. The texture might change slightly and the baking time as well. Just make sure it still is a bit wobbly in the middle when you take it out of the oven. Otherwise it will become dry and boring. But I would really recommend you to try this cottage cheese version, most people haven’t noticed that I used cottage cheese instead of cream cheese.
- I topped my tartlets with pistachio nuts and fresh figs, but you can top it with any fruits or berries that are in season.
