1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees and coat a cupcake pan with non stick spray or liners. Add Oreo (or split Oreo) to the bottom of each cupcake. Set aside.

2. In a large mixing bowl or stand mixer, beat softened cream cheese for 1 minutes until smooth. Add Greek yogurt and mix for another minute. Add eggs one at a time, then vanilla. Add protein powder and PB2. Whip for 1-2 minutes until light and fluffy.

3. Pour cheesecake mixture on top of cookie (these will not rise). Add 1-2 tsp of chocolate peanut butter and swirl with a knife. Add chocolate chips if desired. Bake for 18-20 minutes. Do NOT over bake! Edges should be firm, but the middle of each cheesecake should be slightly unset.
