Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly coat a 13x9x2-inch baking pan with cooking spray; set aside.

  • For crust, place oats in a food processor or blender. Cover and process or blend until coarsely ground. In a small bowl combine ground oats, flour, brown sugar, and melted butter. Pat evenly into the bottom of the prepared pan. Set aside.

  • Meanwhile, for cheesecake filling, in a large bowl combine cream cheese, peanut butter, and granulated sugar. Beat with an electric mixer on medium speed until combined. Add egg substitute, the 1/4 cup milk, and the vanilla. Beat on low speed just until combined.

  • Pour cheesecake filling onto the prepared crust. Bake in preheated oven for 25 minutes or until set in the center. Cool in pan on a wire rack for 30 minutes. Cover with foil and chill for at least 4 hours or up to 24 hours.

  • For chocolate drizzle, in a heavy small saucepan heat and stir chocolate over low heat until melted and smooth. Remove from heat and beat in enough of the 2 to 3 tablespoons milk to make drizzling consistency. Spoon melted chocolate mixture into a small resealable plastic bag. Seal bag. Using scissors, snip off a very small corner from bag. Pipe melted chocolate over the cheesecake filling. Sprinkle with chopped peanuts. Cover and chill until chocolate is set.

I used what I had in the house and made 1/2 recipe just to try them Substituted quick oats a real egg and made my own chocolate drizzle from butter sugar baking cocoa and milk. Chopped up an Atkins bar that's mostly chocolate covered peanuts and a little caramel to put on top. Read More
