Course Dessert
Cuisine American
Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 50 minutes
Total Time 1 hour 30 minutes
Servings 8 people

Ingredients

Crust

  • 1 3/4 Cup Almond Flour
  • 1 tsp Cinnamon
  • 3 TB Artificial Sweetner Make sure you understand how sweet what you use is releative to sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter (melted)

Cheesecake Filling

  • 32 Oz cream cheese (4 pkgs) softened Keep in mind that if you use say 16 oz of cream cheese that it would affect the thickness of the Cheesecake.
  • 1 cup of artificial sweetener We preferred a monk fruit Eryithitol blend
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 Eggs (Room Temperature)

Blueberry Swirling

  • 1 cup blueberries (thawed)

Instructions

Crust

  • Preheat over to 350 degrees
    Combine crust ingredients in a bowl, mix well to form a dough.
    Take your dough and press into a greased springform or pie pan
    Cook crust for 7 to 8 minutes.

Cheesecake Filling

  • In a large bowl combine filling ingredients, adding in eegs one at a time until the filling is fluffy and creamy and sweetened to taste.  
    Add to crust.

Blueberry Swirls

  • Puree your blueberries in a food processor or blender.
    Drop by dollops of blueberries on to the prepared cheesecake batter.
    Using a knife swirl the filling into the top of the cheesecake batter.
    Bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes
    After 40 minutes check to see if the center of the cheesecake has set,  if should only be slightly jiggly...if you need additional baking time lower your oven temperature to 300 degrees and bake it an additional 10 to 15 minutes.
    Check often.
    Your cheesecake will need to set a minimum of 2 hours before serving, and ideally overnight.  As the cheesecakes sets it will shrink and this is normal.
    Enjoy!

Notes

Although we added additional sweetener to our cheesecake it still was a little less sweeter than we prefer, this of course is a personal choice.  
We plan on experimenting with powdered Splenda the next time we make it for our family, just to see what the difference is.  
This recipe can also be modified and used with other types of berries.
