Don't let the name fool you - this treat tastes just as good as the high fat and sugary one.

Ingredients

  • 3 c. cottage cheese
  • 4 oz. Greek yogurt
  • 2/3 c. honey, raw
  • 3 egg
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 3 1/2 oz. almond meal
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 3 tsp. coconut sugar
  • 2 tbs. coconut oil

Directions

For the Base: Combine almond meal, cinnamon, and coconut sugar in a small bowl. Pour melted coconut oil into almond mixture and stir. Transfer to 8x8 baking dish (or a round pie dish) and pat flat to cover the bottom.

For the Filling: Using a hand blender or Cuisinart, puree cottage cheese and yogurt together until smooth. Transfer cottage cheese/yogurt mixture to bowl. Using a hand mixer, lightly beat in honey and vanilla extract. Beat in eggs one at a time. Pour mixture over almond base and bake at 300°F for 45 minutes. Let cool and cut into 12 squares.
