I love how innovative this recipe overnight Weetabix cheesecake is. It takes 3 healthy breakfast ingredients and turns it into everyone’s favourite dessert = cheesecake.
Table of Contents
For this overnight Weetabix cheesecake with Nutella we have the crispy Weetabix as the biscuit layer replacement, the high protein, chocolatey yogurt layer as the creamy cheese layer and the bonus layer = the Nutella swirl that is sweetened and loosened with maple syrup.
The foundation for this recipe and it’s made up of 100% wholegrain, with vitamins and iron, so gives you a great start to the day!
I used almond milk, as it’s dairy and lactose-free, making it a good option for those avoiding dairy but you can use oat milk or soya milk, depending on your preference.
I love the taste of this as a chocolate and hazelnut spread, and apart from being the central to making this recipe, you need it to make the gorgeous swirl topping!
Zero Fat Yogurt
I used zero fat yogurt, but any alternative such as Greek yogurt and soya plain yogurt would work well.
See the recipe card for full information on all ingredients and quantities.
3. Next combine the protein powder and yogurt together in a separate bowl. Then pour onto the Weetabix base, spreading until even (Image 3).
4. To thin out the Nutella and add sweetness, combine with maple syrup (Image 4).
5. Drizzle across the top of the yogurt layer (Image 5).
6. For aesthetic swirls, drag a thin object (I used the end of a teaspoon) through the Nutella to mix into the yogurt slightly. Pop in the fridge to set overnight (or for a couple of hours) and enjoy! (Image 6).
To thin out the Nutella and add sweetness, combine with maple syrup.
To make your swirl the Nutella: Take a skewer or a knife and gently swirl it through the layers to create a marbled effect with the Nutella and creamy chocolatey mixture.
Refrigerate overnight and you’ll have the best breakfast waiting in the morning or allow to set for at least 4-6 hours.
Add other toppings, you can sprinkle chopped nuts or grated chocolate on top for added texture and flavor.
This recipe is high in protein and has a great balance of carbs and fats. You get a healthy amount of fibre from the Weetabix, which will keep you fuller for longer, which would prevent you from snacking throughout the morning.
Yes! Ensure you’re using a vegan protein powder and vegan hazelnut spread. Swap with your favourite plant based yogurt and there you have a vegan overnight weetabix cheesecake!
I would eat this within 1 day of making it. So if you made the recipe on Monday night, ideally eat it on Tuesday morning or latest Wednesday morning.
