I tweaked this recipe from The 30-Day Low Carb Diet Solution book by the Drs. Eades.
I found the cheesecake to be very creamy and quite good; the crust was the best ever. My high-carb loving Handyman didn’t agree, which was fine by me. I got to eat the whole thing all by myself and didn’t have to worry about even my kids getting into it. Yeah! It lasted a week so I was glad to have dessert ready for when I had those sweet cravings which is most of the time.
The recipe calls for individual cupcake cheesecakes, but I baked it in a pie dish as my spring-form pan wasn’t handy at the time. The original recipe is at the bottom of the page. Forgive the cruddy photo.
Mini Chocolate Chip Cheesecake
1 cup very finely chopped pecans
3 packets Splenda (I now use Stevia)
2 T butter, melted
1 tsp. cinnamon
2 large eggs, beaten
16 oz cream cheese, softened
3/4 cup Splenda (granular) or other sweetener blend
1 tsp vanilla extract
3 T semi-sweet mini choc chips (Enjoy Life brand is soy free)
or chopped up SF chocolate bar
Place the finely ground pecans, 2 packets of sweetener, the butter and
cinnamon in a food processor and combine thoroughly. Press the crust mixture in a spring-form pan or a pie dish. Bake for 10 minutes and then cool.
Place the eggs, granular sweetener, cream cheese and vanilla into a mixer and blend until smooth. Fold in the chocolate chips. Pour the cheesecake mixture into the crust and bake for 35-50 minutes at 350º or until it looks like it is set or kinda firm in the middle.
Cool in the oven for a few hours. Refrigerate overnight.
