Lactose-free healthy strawberry cheesecake

When my blog just started, about 8 years ago, I made a recipe for a healthy cheesecake for the first time. This was a huge hype at the time in the Netherlands. A cheesecake that you could eat for breakfast. Now I thought it would be fun to update that old recipe and I made a lactose-free healthy strawberry cheesecake.

Delicious as a healthy snack or for breakfast! It feels a bit like a party, if you can have breakfast with cake

This recipe is based on a recipe by Jelmer de Boer (the recipe is in Dutch)

Healthy cheesecake with oat crust

How do you make this cheesecake? With only a handful of healthy ingredients, which you may already have at home:

For the bottom

  • Oatmeal: Use gluten-free oatmeal if you have to eat strictly gluten-free.
  • Raisins: raisins are used to make the crust a bit sticky, so that it comes together. Raisins are low FODMAP up to 13 grams per serving, so I only use a little bit.
  • Coconut oil: you also use this to make the crust a little sticky together with the oatmeal and the raisins.

For the cheesecake filling:

  • Lactose-free quark: the main filling for the cake. This product might not be known in all countries. You can read a bit more here about what quark is. It is a type of dairy product that is very high in protein and low in fat. In the Netherlands, it is often used instead of yoghurt and is eaten a lot for breakfast.
  • Lactose-free milk: I use this to make the quark a little bit thinner.
  • Gelatin sheets: to help the filling to set
  • Maple syrup: I use this to sweeten the cheesecake. I only use 1 tbsp. This makes the cake not really sweet, but I don’t think that is necessary for a healthy snack or healthy breakfast. Would you prefer a slightly sweeter cake? Then you can add a few extra tablespoons to taste.

Low FODMAP serving

Oatmeal and raisins are both limited low FODMAP. You can get 6 pieces from the cake, 1 piece is a low FODMAP portion. If you omit the raisins from the bottom, you can eat 3 pieces as a low FODMAP portion.

Strawberries are also limited low FODMAP. With the amount of strawberries used, you can still eat 3 pieces (without the raisins in the bottom) as a safe portion.

The entire cake has 6 pieces. The nutritional value below is for 1 piece:

A lactose-free healthy strawberry cheesecake with an oat crust. Delicious to eat for breakfast or as a healthy snack. Gluten-free and low FODMAP. 


  • 40 g (1.4 oz) raisins
  • 80 g (2.8 oz) oats
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil (or butter*)
  • 450 g (16 oz) lactose-free quark or Greek yoghurt
  • 50 ml (1.7 fl. oz.) lactose-free milk
  • 125 g (4.4 oz) strawberries
  • 3 tbsp water
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup (or rice syrup)**
  • 5 gelatin sheets
  • A 7-inch (18 cm) cake tin


  1. Layer the baking tin with baking parchment.
  2. Put the raisins in a bowl with warm water for 10 minutes to soften.
  3. Ground the oats into a coarse flour in a food processor. 
  4. Melt the coconut oil in the microwave. Put this into a bowl together with the oats. 
  5. Dry the raisins with a bit of paper and grind them in a food processor or cut them into small pieces with a knife. Add the raisins to the ingredients in the bowl and add a pinch of salt.
  6. Mix everything together with your hands until you get a sticky crumbly mixture. If the mixture is too dry you can add a little bit of water. Put the mixture into the baking tin and press the bottom with a fork or with your hands. Set aside.
  7. Put the gelatin sheets in a bowl of cold water for 5 minutes.
  8. Mix the quark with the milk in a bowl.
  9. Mash the strawberries with a blender. Heat them in a pan with 3 tbsp water shortly until the mixture boils and take it off the heat.
  10. Squeeze the water from the gelatin sheets and stir them into the strawberry mixture.
  11. Add this mixture to the quark mixture and stir together until the gelatin has dissolved completely and is lump-free. 
  12. Pour the quark mixture on top of the crust and put the cake in the fridge for at least 3 hours to set.


*If you use butter in this recipe it is not fully lactose-free. 

**This is not a sweet cake. If you prefer your cake a little more sweet, you can add a few extra tablespoons of maple syrup. Just taste the quark mixture and add maple syrup to taste.
