Low Carb Chocolate Cheesecake Recipe


Chocolate Crust:

• 1 cup Almond Flour
• Pinch of Himalayan salt
• 1 tablespoon cocoa powder
• 1/16 teaspoon good quality Stevia
• 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
• 4 tablespoon grass fed butter, melted

Cheesecake Filling:

• 16 ounce softened cream cheese
• 2 organic eggs
• 3 ounce unsweetened baker’s chocolate
• 1 tablespoon cocoa powder
• 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
• Pinch of Himalayan salt
• 1/2 cup sour cream
• 3/4 cup Erythritol (low carb sweetener)


• Preheat oven to 350°F. (175°C approx)

• Get a bowl to make the chocolate crust. Pour in 4 tablespoon of melted butter and add the cocoa powder, almond flour, Stevia, and cinnamon. Mix the ingredients well.

• Line a 9-inch springform pan with parchment paper. Press in the crust mixture. Bake for up to 15 min. or until such time that the crust becomes solid and appears darker.

• To make the cheesecake filling, beat the cream cheese and erythritol in a bowl using an electric hand mixer. Add the vanilla extract, sour cream, 2 eggs, and salt. Beat with the mixer until its smooth and creamy.

• In a small pan or double boiler, melt the unsweetened baker’s chocolate on low heat and stir constantly.

• Pour the chocolate into the cream cheese mixture along with 1 tablespoon of cocoa powder. Mix the ingredients well using a rubber spatula.

• Pour the cheesecake filling into the springform pan above the baked chocolate crust.

• Bake for 50 to 60 minutes or until the cheesecake appears darker on top and jiggly underneath.

• Leave the cheesecake to cool and refrigerate overnight. A few hours of refrigeration may be enough, but refrigerating it overnight is a much better option as the cheesecake will firm up.

• Once the cake is chilled, run a plastic knife on the edges of the pan to loosen the cake and undo the buckle of the pan to remove the cake.

• Slice and serve. Top with whipped cream along with some dark chocolate slices. Enjoy!
