For the Crust

  • 2 cups Blanched Almond Flour
  • 1-2 packets of Stevia/Erythritol blend (or 1-2 tsp)
  • 4 tbsp Melted Butter
  • 1/4 tsp Salt

For Cheesecake

  • 16 oz Light Cream Cheese (2 bricks)
  • 1 cup Low Fat 1% Milk Fat Cottage Cheese
  • 1 cup Liquid Egg Whites
  • 1/4 cup Swerve Confectioners Sugar Replacement
  • 1/2 cup Cornstarch
  • 2 cups Fage 0% Greek Yogurt
  • 3 Large Eggs
  • 4 packets Stevia Erythritol Blend (or 4 tsp)
  • 4 Level Scoops of 365 Grass Fed Whey Protein Powder


For the Crust:

  1. Start by preheating your oven to 320 degrees F.
  2. Grease your springform pan lightly with oil or butter.
  3. In large skillet, toast blanched almond flour until golden brown and fragrant (this will give a delicious flavor and crunch to your crust!)
  4. Once toasted, add stevia/erythritol to crumbs and mix well, then pour in melted butter and combine.
  5. Next, place crumbs mixture into springform pan and firmly press into desired crust shape and thickness.
  6. Bake crust for 10-12 minutes (or until you reach desired doneness).
  7. Remove from oven and set aside to cool.

For the Cheesecake:

  1. In high-speed mixer, combine greek yogurt, cottage cheese, and cream cheese. Beat until smooth.
  2. Next, add eggs, egg whites, Swerve, and stevia/erythritol blend.
  3. Scrape sides of bowl and create a well in the center of your mixture. Pour corn starch and protein powder into the well and stir by hand to combine, finishing again with the high-speed mixture (Note: if you skip stirring by hand, you will have a huge mess to clean up!)
  4. Once fully mixed, pour cheesecake mixture over top of crust. (Note: Be sure to use a baking sheet underneath your springform pan or get a springform pan protector to keep your cheesecake from spilling out into your oven.
  5. Bake for 55-60 minutes, until cheesecake is browning on edges but not quite done in the center.
  6. Turn oven off but leave cheesecake in the oven to cool. This will allow the center of your cheesecake to cook through the middle without anything burning.
  7. Serve warm or cold, top with desired toppings like fresh fruit, chopped nuts, and/or Jordan's Skinny Syrups (Salted Caramel is my fave!)
  8. Enjoy!
