Recipe review: Protein Churro Cheesecake Bars

I’m really struggling to find new snack ideas for my new hypoglycemic higher protein, less carbohydrate diet. But, I came across this Protein Churro Cheesecake Bars recipe by Epicurean Bodybuilder and decided to try it out.


I loved them! It’s been a long time since I had to practice a huge amount of restraint to stop eating something. For these, I did! These are delicious!

Recipe hints:

  • I couldn’t find the seamless dough sheet at my grocery store, so I used the regular crescent rolls. This worked ok, but I should have rolled the dough a bit to get rid of the creases. The creases made cutting these bars a bit of a challenge.
  • Mine was a bit runny in the middle, even though I baked it for 33 minutes. I put it in the fridge for a bit and that helped them¬†firm-up a bit for easy cutting and dividing into the 20 servings.
  • In the photo, she rolled the dough up the outer edges of the pan. Although not necessary, I think that’s a great idea.
