You didn’t read the title wrong. I am DEFINITELY suggesting that you eat cheesecake for breakfast.

Breakfast is one of my favorite meals, and if I can combine it with something decadent and healthy I will JUMP at the opportunity.

Nothing can stop you from eating cheesecake for breakfast. No law, unspoken rule or verbal contract can keep you from enjoying the rich decadence of a cream-cheese dessert as soon as your bright eyes and bushy tail decide to rise. If the sheer thought of a fluffy, whipped treat isn’t enough to convince you, perhaps the 12 grams of protein and slim calorie count will help you break the mold.

Coconut flour boosts fiber content, helping to make this a longer-lasting, more satisfying cheesecake than the classic recipe.
