Ingredients

For the Crust

2 cups super fine almond flour

1/3 cup grass-fed unsalted butter, melted

1 whole egg

1/3 cup swerve confectioners (or powdered erythritol)

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

For the Filling

16 ounces cream cheese

1/2 cup Lily’s dark chocolate chips (or other sugar-free chocolate), melted

1/3 cup sour cream

1/2 cup swerve confectioners

2 whole eggs

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Preparation

To Make the Crust

Preheat oven to 350F.

Add the almond flour, butter, egg, swerve confectioners and vanilla extract to the bowl of a food processor and mix until a dough is formed.

Place the dough in a 8 x 8 glass or ceramic baking dish lined with parchment paper and press out in an even layer.

To Make the Filling

Add the cream cheese to a mixing bowl and mix.

Mix in the eggs one at a time, then add the swerve slowly.

Then add in the vanilla and sour cream.


Remove 1/2 cup of the batter.


And mix with the melted chocolate.

Pour most of the plain batter over the crust.


Dollop half of the chocolate batter over the top.


Take a butter knife and gently swirl the batter together, without touching the crust.

Dollop the remaining vanilla and chocolate batter alternately, and swirl together again.

Bake for 35-40 minutes, or until the center has just set.  There will still be a slight jiggle to it.


Chill in the fridge for at least 1-2 hours or until set before cutting and serving.
