Cheesecake Crust

  • 1 1/2 Cups Almond Flour
  • 1 Tsp Baking Powder
  • 1/8 Tsp Salt
  • 1/4 Cup Golden Monk Fruit or replace with regular monk fruit
  • 1/4 Cup Monk Fruit
  • 1/4 Cup Coconut Oil

  • 16 Ounces Cream Cheese
  • 2 Tsp Vanilla i also added almond extract
  • 1 Cup Monk Fruit

  • 3 Large Eggs


Cheesecake Crust

  1. Preheat oven to 325-degrees.

  2. In a large mixing bowl, sift the almond flour, baking powder, salt, and monk fruit together.

  3. Whisk the eggs. Mix the coconut oil and eggs into the mixing bowl with the almond flour ingredients.

  4. Add the mixture into a 9 x 15 baking dish and use your fingers to press down the crust evenly.

    You can also use two standard pie pans for this cheesecake.

  5. Bake the crust for 22-minutes.

Cheesecake Topping

  1. Use an electric mixer to mix the eggs, cream cheese, salt, monk fruit, and vanilla. Beat on a low speed until there are no more cream cheese clumps.

  2. Pour the mixture on top of the baked crust. Spread evening, and bake at 325 for 45-minutes.

    If the edges start to brown, remove the cheesecake.

  3. Let the cheesecake cool in the fridge for an hour or two. I placed it in the freezer for about 20-minutes to speed up the process.

  4. Slice into 15 bars (or 8 pieces if using a pie pan)

  5. Store in the refrigerator!
