Low Carb Cheese Cake

My amazing wife, among her many talents, makes a wonderful low carb cheese cake.  She has taken the recipe found in Maria Emmerich’s “Secret Weight Loss Recipes” and modified it to our family’s taste.  It has quickly become one of my family’s favorites.

Low Carb Cheesecake = 1 gram carb per serving
Individual spring-form serving pans
Crust:
2 cups almond flour
1/4 cup coconut flour
1/2 cup butter melted
Pinch of salt
1/2 cup erythritol
Mix and press into spring-form pan.
5 (8 oz) packages cream cheese, softened
1 cup erythritol and 1 tsp liquid Stevia
1 TBS vanilla
1/2 cup whey Protein
1 cup sour cream
3 eggs
Preheat oven to 350F. Mix cream cheese, sweetener, protein and vanilla with an electric mixer until blended. Add eggs one at a time, mixing on low after each until blended. Blend in sour cream and pour over crust. Place a pan of water on the lower rack place cheesecake on rack above. Bake for approximately 45 minutes until set. Watch carefully!
Refrigerate overnight.
Freezes well too!
My wife will often bake them in individual sized pans (as in the picture above) so that I can pull one out of the freezer, let it thaw and cover it in whip cream and a sprinkle of berries.  Tastes fantastic!
One serving is = 1 gram of carbohydrate.

    • Justin, I appreciate your concern, but if you read the full body of literature and not just one old study, you’ll find your statement to be misleading. Literature review of steviol glycosides DO NOT she toxicity or genetic mutation capabilities. There were a few outliers in the initial studies within the genotoxic database, however, since that time multiple studies have been completed that have been ruled out Steviol as genotoxic.
