Cheesecakes are a favorite dessert amongst the keto community. The beauty of this recipe is that it does not require an oven and can be prepared in 15 minutes! Top with a few berries for added flavor.
For the Crust:
2 tbsp almond flour
2 tbsp finely crushed walnuts
1 tsp powdered erythritol
Pinch of cinnamon
1 1/2 tsp butter or coconut oil, melted
For the Cheesecake:
2 oz cream cheese, softened
1 1/2 tbsp powdered erythritol
1/2 tsp pure vanilla
1/4 cup heavy cream
Optional topping: sliced strawberries
Lightly toast the almond flour and crushed walnuts in a dry skillet over medium heat for a minute or two, while stirring to avoid burning. Transfer to a bowl and combine with the remaining ingredients for the crust.
Divide the crust and press into 2 (8 oz) ramekins and refrigerate while you prepare the cheesecake.
Whip the heavy cream in a small bowl until soft peaks form and set aside.
Combine the cream cheese, erythritol, and vanilla in another bowl. Beat with an electric mixer. Add the whipped cream and beat again for about 30 - 60 seconds, or until smooth.
Spoon or pipe the cheesecake mixture on top of the crust. Place in the freezer for about 20 minutes or the refrigerator for about an hour
Top with sliced strawberries, if desired and enjoy!
