Instructions

For Brownie Crust

  • Starting with the brownie base and add ingredients in the order. Preheat oven to 300. You can use a springform pan or a X BY X pan.
  • In a glass bowl or other microwave safe dish, melt the butter for 30- 45 seconds.
  • In a small bowl add the coconut flour, cocoa powder, and SPLENDA®. Whisk until well blended.
  • Add dry mixture to a large mixing bowl blend butter, eggs, coconut milk and vanilla.
  • Slowly added dry ingredients until well blended.
  • Stir in walnuts by hand.
  • Spread evenly at the bottom of a greased pan and bake for 20 minutes. Remove the brownie for the oven and let cool for 30 minutes. While it is cooling, mix filling ingredients.

For Cheesecake Filling

  • In a large mixing bowl, blend cream cheese and eggs.
  • Slowly add in SPLENDA® and blend until smooth. Then begin to add in remaining ingredients.
  • Pour filling over cooled brownie bottom and spread evenly.
  • Bake cheesecake for 30 minutes or until set. Remove the cheesecake from the over and let it cool for 30 minutes.
  • Place in the fridge to set completely for 2 hours or until cool. I prefer to leave in the fridge overnight.
  • Top with your favorite topping and enjoy!

Notes

Remove cream cheese and eggs from the fridge a few hours before baking. It's best to work with cream cheese at room temperature.
