Ingredients

BASE

  • 1.25 cups Almond flour
  • 1/4 cups Coconut flour
  • 3 tablespoons Erythritol or low carb sweetener
  • 5 tablespoons Butter, melted unsalted
  • 1/4 teaspoon Salt

CHEESECAKE

  • 16 oz Cream cheese softened
  • 3/4 cup Erythritol or low carb sweetener
  • 1 tablespoon Vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt
  • 3 Eggs
  • 1 cup Coconut cream
  • 1/2 cup Cream Whipping/Heavy

Instructions

BASE

  • Preheat the oven to 180C/350F degrees.
  • Cover the bottom of an 8- inch cake tin with silver foil, ensuring that it comes up to the sides too. You don’t want any water to get into the tin when baking it! (I used a square tin but you could use a circular one).
  • In a bowl, mix the almond flour, coconut flour, butter, erythritol and salt together until blended. Almost like breadcrumbs.
  • Press this mixture down into the cake tin. Smooth out evenly and bake for 15-20 minutes until golden.
  • Cool and place in the fridge.

CHEESECAKE

  • Beat the cream cheese in a bowl using an electric mixer or whisk until smooth and fluffy.
  • Add the erythritol and beat until smooth.
  • Add the eggs, one at a time, making sure the mixture is smooth.
  • Add the vanilla, salt, coconut cream and heavy cream. Whisk until smooth.
  • Pour the filling into the cake tin on top of the base.
  • Place the cake tin into a large baking pan and fill with hot water so it comes up to about 2/3rds of the side of the cake tin.
  • Bake for an hour and 20 minutes until the cheesecake is firm to the touch.
  • Cool in the oven with the door slightly open to avoid cracking. Then chill overnight (will power IS required here!)
  • Remove from the tin, decorate, eat and enjoy!
