  • 50 grams Lindt Dark Chocolate

  • 1/2 cup flour (+ 1 tbsp. butter, softened)
  • 1/2 cup coconut flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla beans (+ 1 tbsp. butter, softened)
  • 3 tablespoons erythritol (+ 1 tbsp. butter, softened)
  • 1 cup cream cheese (+ 1 tbsp. butter, softened)

  • Making the crust:
  • Mix the Lindt and the butter in a frying pan on low heat.
  • Stir until they are completely melted and combined.
  • Mix the dry ingredients together in a separate bowl.
  • Add your butter mixture into the dry ingredients and mix well.
  • The consistency is almost like biscuit crumbs.
  • Grease your non-stick cake/tart pan with the extra tablespoon of butter.
  • Press your crust mixture firmly into the pan.
  • Spread the mixture out as evenly as you can.
  • Once you have your crust formed, place it in the preheated oven for 8 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven when done and let it cool.
  • This step just melts the butter in the mixture again and it solidifies in shape.
  • Making the filling:
  • Melt the Lindt (40g) and the sour cream in the pan you used for the crust.
  • Mix well.
  • In a separate bowl, combine the cream cheese, erythritol, heavy cream and vanilla.
  • Add in the sour cream and chocolate mixture.
  • Whip with an electric mixer until the ingredients are completely combined.
  • Spoon the mixture into the cooled crust.
  • Grate the last square of Lindt over the cheesecake.
  • Let the cheesecake set in the fridge for minimum 6 hours, but I would recommend making this the day before you need it.
  • It gets better the longer it sets.
  • Some flavour suggestions: Add 1/2 tsp.
  • peppermint extract for a very gentle peppermint crisp suggestion.
  • It's really good!
