LCHF Cheesecake

on September 23, 2012

Fall is here in the Midwest. And for me that means football games, bonfires, and cheesecake. Yep, cheesecake. For some reason this is the season I associate with this delicious dessert.

 

Original cheesecake has a lot of carbohydrates from the graham cracker crust and sugar added to the cream cheese, but in this recipe both have been eliminated.

This takes less than 10 minutes to prepare, and sets in around a hour. I usually make it before starting dinner, and then by the time we are done eating it is ready!

Cheesecake:

  • 2 (8 0z) packages of full fat original cream cheese
  • 1/2 c. splenda or sugar substitute of your choice (I prefer liquid splenda to keep carbs lower)
  • 2 tsp vanilla (adjust to taste)
  • 1 packet unflavored gelatin (this is in the baking isle by the jello)
  • Unflavored Gelatin
  • 1 c. boiling water

Crust:

  • 1 stick full fat salted butter
  • 2 cups almonds ground in food processor until fine

Directions:

Bring water to a boil and mix together with gelatin until all is dissolved.
While waiting for the water to boil soften cream cheese in the microwave until soft, not melted.
Melt the butter in the microwave until melted.
Place the all of the softened cream cheese in a bowl and add vanilla and splenda. Blend until smooth.
Slowly add gelatin and water mixture continuing to blend.
Place the ground almonds in a pie pan and add melted butter. Pat down with a spoon or spatula until the bottom of the pie pan is covered. The crust may seem a little soggy, but it will firm up as it sets.
Pour cream cheese mixture on top of crust
and place in the fridge.
Let it set for around a hour and then cut it up and enjoy!

 

For best results, don’t have a teenager help you….you may end up with less cream cheese filling than you anticipated!
