If you were to ask me what my favorite kind of recipe is to make, I would say: 1. no-bake recipes and 2. anything that involves chocolate. These triple chocolate cheesecakes tick both of those boxes.

They’re really easy and fun to make, and they’re seriously so delicious! Of course, they’re also made with simple, nourishing ingredients – so these mini chocolate cheesecakes are good for your soul and your body! You may be wondering “how can something that looks so good actually be healthy?” – well, have no fear!

These triple chocolate cheesecakes start with a 3-ingredient no-bake chocolate crust that tastes like chocolate cookie dough. These crusts get pressed into a muffin tray to create individual cheesecakes (hey-ho portion control!). They’re then filled with a silky smooth chocolate cheesecake filling and topped with a layer of dark chocolate for extra goodness.

They’re also naturally gluten-free and contain no nuts, and they can easily be made vegan as well as refined sugar-free!

I find these chocolate cheesecakes so satisfying; they’re not overly sweet, but they’re definitely decadent and rich. So, although they’re incredibly delicious, one mini cheesecake always seems to satisfy my chocolate cravings without needing to devour a couple of slices of regular chocolate cheesecake.

How are these Mini Triple Chocolate Cheesecakes healthy?

These Mini Triple Chocolate Cheesecakes might sound indulgent, but they’re actually quite healthy! Here’s how:

  1. Nutritious Ingredients: These cheesecakes are made with wholesome ingredients like oat flour, cocoa powder, liquid sweetener, yogurt, and cream cheese. Oat flour is a whole grain that’s rich in fiber, protein, and essential nutrients, providing sustained energy and promoting digestive health. Cocoa powder is packed with antioxidants, which have been linked to numerous health benefits, including improved heart health and reduced inflammation. Liquid sweeteners like maple syrup or honey offer a more natural alternative to refined sugars, providing sweetness without the blood sugar spikes.
  2. Portion Control: By preparing these cheesecakes in individual servings, it’s easier to practice portion control.
  3. Lower Sugar Content: Unlike traditional cheesecakes that are loaded with refined sugars, these mini cheesecakes use liquid sweeteners in moderation. This results in a lower overall sugar content while still delivering the sweetness and flavor you crave.
  4. Protein-Rich: Greek yogurt and cream cheese are the primary sources of protein in these cheesecakes. Protein is essential for muscle repair, immune function, and satiety. Including protein-rich foods in your diet can help you feel fuller for longer.
  5. Balanced Macros: These cheesecakes provide a balanced combination of carbohydrates, protein, and fats, making them a well-rounded treat. This balance of macronutrients helps keep blood sugar levels stable and promotes overall satiety.

Overall, these Mini Triple Chocolate Cheesecakes offer a healthier alternative to traditional desserts while still satisfying your sweet tooth.

Ingredients and Substitutions

These are the ingredients you’ll need to make these Chocolate Cheesecakes. You can find the exact measurements in the recipe card at the bottom of this page.

Oat Flour: To form the no-bake cheesecake crust, you will need some oat flour. You can use shop-bought oat flour or make your own oat flour by blending rolled oats into a fine powder (in a blender or food processor). Oat flour is healthier than plain all-purpose flour – it’s a whole grain so it contains more micronutrients, fiber, and protein. It’s also more satiating than regular flour.

Cocoa Powder: Used in the chocolate cheesecake crust as well as in the filling. Cocoa powder contains antioxidants that help to improve cholesterol and blood sugar levels and reduce the risk of heart disease. It also helps to reduce inflammation and can protect you from diseases such as heart disease, cancer, and diabetes. Cacao can also be used.

Liquid Sweetener: Instead of powdered sugar, which is typically used in cheesecake, this recipe calls for a liquid sweetener like maple syrup, agave, or honey. These are refined sugar-free and better for you than processed granulated sugar. My preference is honey.

Yogurt: As part of the chocolate cheesecake filling, yogurt adds volume, creaminess, and goodness. You will need to use a thick yogurt like Greek yogurt or a thick plain yogurt. Try to use one that is made with just milk and no extra additives, gums, or sweeteners. My favorite is Greek yogurt because it’s high in protein and probiotics.

Cream Cheese: You cannot make cheesecake without cream cheese! Again, I recommend using a cream cheese that is made with just milk and no extra additives, gums, or sweeteners. This also bumps up the protein count of this recipe. You could also use smooth cottage cheese which is lower in fat, yet higher in protein.

Dark Chocolate: For a decadent, delicious topping. Like cocoa powder, dark chocolate is a great antioxidant and anti-inflammatory ingredient; and YES – it is healthy! Try to use a refined sugar-free dark chocolate like this one.

Equipment Needed

  • Blender or Food Processor – If making your own oat flour from scratch.
  • Digital Food Scale – For accurate measurements and perfect results.
  • Mixing Bowl – To make the crust and filling in.
  • Spatula
  • Muffin Tray – I recommend a silicone tray as it makes removing the cheesecakes easier. You can, however, use a metal tray, but they might be harder to remove – consider using paper liners.
  • Heat-proof Bowl – For melting the chocolate. I use a glass bowl.

How to make Mini Triple Chocolate Cheesecakes

Here is a detailed summary of how to make these Triple Chocolate Cheesecakes. I’ve also included some photos, and you can find the recipe video in the recipe card. At the bottom of this page is a summarized version that can be printed.

Step 1:
If you’re making your own oat flour: add whole oats to a blender or food processor and blend into a fine powder. To make your oat flour even finer, you can sift it to remove bigger pieces of oats that may not have blended.

How to make oat flour: blend and sift whole oats.

Step 2:
Add the Oat Flour, Cocoa Powder, and Liquid Sweetener to a bowl. Use a spatula or your hands to work the ingredients into a mixture that resembles cookie dough. If the mixture seems too dry, you can add a tablespoon of water until the mixture comes together. If the mixture is too wet, add some extra cocoa powder.

Step 3:
Divide the mixture into six equal pieces, roll each into a ball, and place inside your muffin holes. Press each one down into the bottom and then up the sides to create a mini cheesecake crust. For this, I like to use a measuring spoon or even a spice bottle!

Step 4:
Once your cheesecake crusts have been formed, it’s time to get to the filling. Add the Yogurt, Cream Cheese, Liquid Sweetener, and Cocoa Powder to a clean bowl. Use a fork or spatula to mix until smooth.

Step 5:
Divide the cheesecake filling between the crusts, filling them right to the edge.

Step 6:
Now, melt the dark chocolate using a double boiler or in the microwave, avoiding burning by using 30-second increments.

Step 7:
Divide the melted chocolate onto each of the cheesecakes, spreading it to the edges.

Step 8:
Place in the fridge or freezer until set, then remove and enjoy!

How to Customize your Healthy Chocolate Cheesecakes

While these Mini Triple Chocolate Cheesecakes are delicious as is, you can easily customize them to suit your preferences and dietary needs. Here are some ideas for making these cheesecakes your own:

Flavor Variations: Experiment with different flavors to create unique cheesecake combinations. Consider adding extracts like vanilla, almond, or peppermint to the filling for added depth of flavor. You can also incorporate spices like cinnamon or nutmeg for a warm, comforting twist.

Topping Options: Get creative with toppings to enhance the presentation and flavor of your cheesecakes. You can sprinkle crushed nuts, shredded coconut, or fresh fruit for added texture and sweetness. You could also add a dollop of nut butter for extra deliciousness.

Dietary Modifications: Adapt the recipe to meet your dietary preferences or restrictions. For a dairy-free version, substitute dairy-free yogurt and cream cheese alternatives. Use gluten-free oat flour for a gluten-free option.

Mini Cheesecake Bites: Instead of traditional muffin-sized cheesecakes, try making bite-sized cheesecake bites for a fun twist. Use a mini muffin tin or silicone mold to create smaller portions that are perfect for snacking or serving at parties.

Enjoy the process of experimenting and discovering new flavor combinations that you love!

Tips & Notes

Soften Cream Cheese: For a smoother and creamier cheesecake filling, make sure to soften the cream cheese at room temperature before using it. This will ensure easy mixing and prevent lumps in the filling.

Press the Crust Firmly: When forming the chocolate crusts in the muffin tray, be sure to press the mixture firmly into the bottom and up the sides of each cavity. This will make the appearance better and also ensure you have the perfect vessel for that delicious chocolate cheesecake filling.

Use High-Quality Dark Chocolate: For the topping, opt for high-quality dark chocolate with at least 70% cocoa content. This will provide a rich and intense chocolate flavor without being overly sweet. Look for chocolate that is free from additives and artificial flavors for the best results.

Chill Before Serving: To achieve the perfect texture, allow the cheesecakes to chill in the fridge for at least 1 hour or longer before serving. This will allow the filling to set properly and develop its full flavor. For a quicker chilling time, you can also place the cheesecakes in the freezer for 30 minutes to an hour.

Customize with Garnishes: Enhance the presentation of your cheesecakes by adding decorative garnishes before serving. Fresh berries, chocolate curls, or a dusting of cocoa powder can add visual appeal and complement the rich chocolate flavor.

How to Store Triple Chocolate Cheesecake

Refrigeration: Once prepared, store any leftover Mini Triple Chocolate Cheesecakes in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3-4 days. Refrigeration helps preserve the texture and flavor of the cheesecakes, ensuring they remain delicious for several days.

Freezing: If you wish to store the cheesecakes for longer-term storage, you can freeze them. Place the cheesecakes in a freezer-safe container or resealable bag, removing as much air as possible. Frozen cheesecakes can be stored in the freezer for up to 1-2 months.

Thawing: When ready to enjoy frozen cheesecakes, transfer them from the freezer to the refrigerator and allow them to thaw overnight. Thawing gradually in the refrigerator helps maintain the texture and prevents any potential for spoilage. Avoid thawing at room temperature to prevent the cheesecakes from becoming too soft or losing their shape.

By following these storage instructions, you can enjoy your Mini Triple Chocolate Cheesecakes for several days or even weeks, ensuring you always have a delicious treat on hand whenever cravings strike.

Can I use different types of chocolate for the topping?

Absolutely! While dark chocolate is traditionally used for the topping, you can experiment with milk chocolate, white chocolate, or even flavored chocolates like mint or orange-infused chocolate. Adjust the sweetness according to your preference and enjoy your personalized twist on these cheesecakes.

Can I make these cheesecakes ahead of time?

Yes, these Mini Triple Chocolate Cheesecakes can be made ahead of time for convenience. Prepare the cheesecakes as instructed and store them in the refrigerator for up to 3-4 days or freeze them for longer-term storage. Thaw frozen cheesecakes overnight in the refrigerator before serving.

Can I substitute the oat flour with another type of flour?

While oat flour provides a nutritious and gluten-free base for the crust, you can substitute it with other types of flour if needed. Almond flour or graham cracker crumbs can be used as alternatives for a slightly different texture and flavor. Adjust the quantity as needed to achieve the desired consistency.

How can I prevent my cheesecake crust from sticking to the muffin tin?

To prevent the crust from sticking to the muffin tin, consider using silicone muffin liners or insert paper cupcake cases into your muffin tray. Press the crust firmly into the bottom and up the sides of each cavity to create a smooth surface and ensure easy removal after chilling.

Can I make these cheesecakes vegan or dairy-free?

Yes, you can easily make these cheesecakes vegan or dairy-free by using dairy-free yogurt and cream cheese alternatives. Choose plant-based options like coconut yogurt or cashew cream cheese to replace the dairy ingredients. Additionally, use dairy-free dark chocolate for the topping to ensure the entire recipe is vegan-friendly.

Can I omit the liquid sweetener or reduce the amount of sugar in the recipe?

While the liquid sweetener adds sweetness and moisture to the cheesecake filling, you can adjust the amount or omit it entirely based on your preference. Taste the filling mixture before adding the sweetener and adjust according to your desired level of sweetness. Keep in mind that reducing the sugar content may alter the texture and flavor of the cheesecakes slightly.
