Low carb raspberry cheesecake slices

Low carb cheesecake

 

The brazil nut buttery base is so delicious you could eat this on its own.  You can make these as sweet as you like by adding more stevia/raspberries.

Ingredients
  1. 130g butter, melted and cooled
  2. 60g cocoa powder
  3. 1/2 tsp baking powder
  4. 6 eggs
  5. 3 tsp vanilla extract
  6. 120g cream cheese
  7. 20g soy flour
  8. 7.5g Stevia
Instructions
  1. Whisk all the ingredients together really well.
  2. Bake in a baking tin, buttered and lined with greaseproof paper. My tin is 17x26cm.
  3. Bake for 20 mins at 180 deg C.
  4. Cool and slice into 12.
Notes
  1. These freeze really well and are actually better eaten the following day. You can make them without the soy flour, but they have more the texture of a chocolate baked cheesecake.
  2. If you are new to low-carbing, you may prefer your brownies a bit sweeter and will need to add more Stevia. If you like really bitter chocolate, 7.5g may be enough.
