Low Carb Cheesecake

I love a good cheesecake!  This cheesecake is fluffy and creamy with a delicious hazelnut crust.  Sometimes, I use almond flour instead of hazelnut.  You can also just use coconut flour (increase to 1 cup total) or have no crust at all!



  • 3 bricks cream cheese, room temp
  • 1/2 c. sour cream
  • 1/3 c. heavy whipping cream
  • 3 eggs, beaten
  • 1 tbsp. vanilla extract
  • 1/2 c. Confectioner’s Swerve (powdered erythritol)


  • 1/2 c ground hazelnuts (or other nuts)
  • 1/2 c. Coconut flour
  • 3/4 stick melted butter


  1. Blend hazelnuts and coconut flour.  Add melted butter and incorporate.  Press into a greased cheesecake pan or pie plate. Bake at 300 for about 10 minutes.
  2. While the crust is baking, blend cream cheese, sour cream, and heavy cream. Add eggs, then vanilla and blend until incorporated.  Add sweetener and blend.
  3. When the crust is done, fill with the cream cheese mixture.
  4. Bake at 300 for 45-60 minutes or until center is set.  It usually cracks but if you’d like to use a hot water bath, that will help prevent it.

Low Carb Chocolate Chip Cookies Bars (A Review)

When I saw this recipe for Low Carb Chocolate Chip Cookies Bars by All Day I Dream About Food, I knew I had to make them A.S.A.P.  I love cheesecake!  And who doesn’t love chocolate chip cookies?

The cookie dough batter is surprisingly similar to traditional chocolate chip cookie dough, for a grain-free batter.  I love the addition of the coconut flake!  It gives it a great texture and flavor.

I did cut the swerve in the cookie dough batter down to 1/4 c.  I’m not big on overly sugary desserts and as it turned out, they were pretty sweet even with 1/4 c.

Here is the first layer in my greased pan.

Because the pan I used is smaller than 9×9, the bars turned out pretty deep.  They were still every bit as delicious, though.
