There are certain things I can eat that are not exactly by-the-book but it works for me. After all, the whole point of a lasting diet is being able to find an eating style that is suitable for you. That way, you can stick to it and reach your long-term goals. Not to mention this is a heck of a lot better for you than your average cheesecake!

With that said, this following recipe makes a fat free cheesecake with a nice brown sugar oat bran crust. It’s very easy to make and is very close in taste to the real thing!
