- 1 cup almond flour
- 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
- 1/3 cup blanched almond (chopped)
- 2 tsp Nuvia Sweetener
- 1/3 cup coconut oil
- Cheese filling
- 500g cream cheese (softened)
- 2 cup whipping cream
- 1-2 tbsp Nuvia Sweetener
- 1 1/2 cup blueberries
- 1/2 tbsp vanilla extract
- 1-2 tbsp Nuvia Sweetener (depending on the sweetness of the blueberries)
- Topping (prepare first, as you will need to set it aside to cool)
- 1. In a saucepan, pour in all the ingredients and cook over a low heat (approx. 80°C).
- 2. With a spatula/potato masher, mash the ingredients, stirring occasionally to ensure the ingredients are well mixed.
- 3. Boil for 15 to 20 mins. Dribble some hot jam onto a spoon and run your finger through the jam. If it makes a clear path, the jam is ready. If you want to achieve a smoother texture or puree, pour the jam into a blender.
- 4. Place the jam aside to cool for 5 mins before pouring onto the cheese filling.
- 5. Cling wrap and refrigerate the cheesecake for at least 3 hours before slicing.
- 1. Preheat oven at 180°C.
- 2. In a medium bowl, pour in the ingredients and mix, or, if you have a blender/ food processor, it will save time as you can chop and mix the ingredients at once.
- 3. Pour the mixture into a cake tin and flatten it. I used a 22 cm round tin for mine. Alternatively, a square baking tin would allow you to slice the cheesecake into bite-size cubes.
- 4. Bake for 15 - 20 mins.
- 5. Allow the tin to cool completely before pouring in the filling.
- Cheese filling
- 1. In a large bowl whip the cream cheese to soften it.
- 2. Pour in the Nuvia Sweetener and mix with a whisk.
- 3. Pour in whipping cream in a few batches and whisk again. Stop when you have achieved a slightly thickened, creamy texture.
- 4. Pour the batter on the base and spread it out evenly.
TIPS AND TWEAKS
Keep the cream cheese out at room temperature to soften while preparing the base and toppings.
