Ingredients

Almond Flour Cheesecake Crust

  • 2 cups Blanched almond flour
  • 1/3 cup Butter (measured solid, then melted)
  • 3 tbsp Erythritol (granular or powdered works fine)
  • 1 tsp Vanilla extract

Keto Cheesecake Filling

  • 32 oz Cream cheese (softened)
  • 1 1/4 cup Powdered erythritol (erythritol must be powdered; can also use powdered stevia)
  • 3 large Egg
  • 1 tbsp Lemon juice
  • 1 tsp Maple extract
  1. Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F (177 degrees C). Grease a 9 in (23 cm) spring-form pan (or you can line the bottom with parchment paper).
  2. Secondary Crust Option–purchase a pre-made crust, just make sure to bake it in a water-bath.
  3. To make the almond flour cheesecake crust, stir the almond flour, melted butter, erythritol, and vanilla extract in a medium bowl, until well combined. The dough will be slightly crumbly. Press the dough into the bottom of the prepared pan. Bake for about 10-12 minutes, until barely golden. Let cool at least 10 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, beat the cream cheese and powdered sweetener together at low to medium speed until fluffy. Beat in the eggs, one at a time. Finally, beat in the lemon juice and maple extract.
  5. Pour the filling into the pan over the crust. Smooth the top with a spatula (use a pastry spatula for a smoother top if you have one).
  6. Bake for about 65-75 minutes, until the center is almost set, but still jiggly.
  7. Remove the cheesecake from the oven. If the edges are stuck to the pan, run a knife around the edge (don’t remove the spring-form edge yet). Cool in the pan on the counter to room temperature, then refrigerate for at least 4 hours (preferably overnight), until completely set. (Do not try to remove the cake from the pan before chilling.)
  8. Serve with fresh fruits or sugar free homemade coulis.
