  1. 2 large eggs, beaten till frothy
  2. 1 cup almond flour
  3. 1/3 cup bulk sugar substitute (I used Xylatol)
  4. 1 teaspoon baking powder
  1. 500g's full cream cheese, softened
  2. 1/2 cup bulk sugar substitute (again I used Xylatol)
  3. 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  4. 3 large eggs
  1. Place oven rack in the center position and preheat your oven at 180 degrees, spray a springfoam pan with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl, combine all the crust ingredients and mix well. Pour into greased dish, spread evenly and bake in the oven for 15 minutes or until lightly browned. Allow to cool for 5 minutes.
  3. While the crust bakes, prepare the cheesecake filling by beating the cream cheese, sugar sub and vanilla extract in a mixer on medium until fully combined. Add the eggs and continue mixing on medium just until the mixture is smooth.
  4. Pour the filling over the crust, spread evenly and bake in the oven for 30 minutes or until the center is set.
  5. Cool on a wire rack for 30 minutes and enjoy with a dollop of cream!
  1. Nutritional values are based on the entire cake. Follow the link to the original recipe for me detailed nutritional values.

      You can also make your own almond flour by grinding almonds in coffee grinder. Works really well!

    Hello, just found this on pinterest… have you tried it without the crust? is it “solid” enough to do in individual muffin rounds?… i think i might have drooled a little while reading the recipe…

    Are you sure that the calorie count is right? 500 g of cream cheese is about 1600 calories

      HI Michelle. I wondered the same thing. It seemed too low to bake this, but realized she’s using Celsius instead of Fahrenheit. Siri converted this for me and said its 356 degrees for Fahrenheit. Thanks Siri! 🙂

    how many servings to come up with the nutritional information?

      The nutritional info is based on the entire cake, which makes about 12 slices.

      April 20, 2016 at 8:40 am
      • Reply Kathy

        I just recalculated the nutritional info. The above numbers are for 1 slice not the whole cake. The cream cheese alone at 500g/18oz is: 1800 cal, 72 fat, 16 carbs, 16 protein. If you divide those numbers by 12 (slices) it starts to look like the numbers above. Correct me if I’m wrong.

    1 cup = 250 millilitres
    Is this right?

    Almond flour has 3g net carbs (6g with 3g of fiber) per 1/4 cup. So, a full cup of almond flour would amount to 12g net carbs. I’m assuming those nutritional values are for the cheesecake without the crust.

    In either case, it looks pretty good! I’m going to give it a shot!

    It’s nine at night, and I have a cheesecake baking in the oven as I type this. I, too, was wondering about the carb count. Someone pointed out that almond flour does have a few carbs, but the real culprit is the sweetener. Stevia has about 5 carbs per tablespoon, if I recall correctly. This will still be so worth it, and will have to be treated as a special dish and not one served every day. I will also have to count one serving as 1/12 of the cake! I will not be able to have a slice for breakfast, lunch and dinner! At this hour, I will probably take it out of the oven, soon put it in the fridge, and then have a piece for breakfast, though!

      Using frozen berries, warm them slowly on the stove and include some Xylitol for a little sweetness.

    What did I do wrong? I baked the crust let it cool for 5 min then poured the filling into the spring form baking pan. It started running out the bottom of the spring form and the crust starded to float. Disaster. I was so looking forward to this. Luckily I saved the filling and pressed the crust into a baking dish and then added the filling. Trying to save it now.

      Sounds like your spring form pan is not sealing, it shouldn’t run through at all.

    I made this cheesecake and it was simply delicious. I made it in a normal cake tin and it was not a problem to neatly lift the slices. It tastes at its best when well cooled off.

    Can I use stevia, sugar form, in place of the xylitol? If so, how much would I need to use please?

      I honestly couldn’t say, I absolutely hate stevia.
