Ingredients
Crust
  • ½ cup coconut flour
  • ½ cup almond flour
  • 3 tablespoons flaxseed meal (or arrowroot starch)
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 tablespoons butter (or ghee or coconut oil), melted
  • ½ cup whole milk (or coconut milk)
  • 1 tablespoon pure maple syrup
Filling
  • 1 cup grass-fed sour cream or plain Greek yogurt
  • ¼ cup grass-fed heavy cream
  • 4 (8-ounce) packages organic cream cheese
  • ½ tablespoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1¼ cup organic sugar or coconut palm sugar (add up to ¾ cup more sugar for sweeter palates)
  • 4 pasture-raised eggs
Topping
  • 1 tablespoon grass-fed butter
  • ¼ cup dark chocolate chips
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350°F and grease a 9-inch springform pan.
  2. In a bowl, combine crust ingredients and press in one even layer on the bottom of the springform pan.
  3. To your blender or food processor, add sour cream, heavy cream, cream cheese, vanilla and sugar. Blend smooth.
  4. Add eggs and blend until well incorporated. Be careful not to over mix the eggs.
  5. Pour cheesecake batter over crust into springform pan.
  6. Bake cheesecake for about 1 hour and 20 minutes, until firm. No peeking till the end! The cheesecake is done when the outside is firm and the middle slightly jiggles like custard.
  7. Turn off the oven, but leave cheesecake in there for about an hour with the door cracked open.
  8. Once cooled, refrigerate overnight.
  9. In a small saucepan, melt 1 tablespoon butter over low heat. Once melted, remove from heat and add chocolate chips. Stir until melted. Drizzle chocolate over the top of the cheese cake.
Notes
For Chocolate Peanut Butter Cheesecake: Before pressing the crust dough into the springform pan, melt 1 tablespoon grass-fed butter in a small saucepan with 1 cup dark chocolate chips over low heat--stir constantly till fully melted. Pour ¼ of the chocolate mixture into the crust mixture and then press into springform pan. Set the other ¾ of the chocolate mixture aside.

After mixing up the cheesecake filling, divide it into 2 portions. In one half of the batter, stir in ¾ cup creamy peanut butter. In the other half, stir the rest of the melted chocolate.

Pour about ¼ of the peanut butter cheesecake filling into the springform pan, then pour in about ¼ of the chocolate cheesecake filling. Alternate until all the filling is in the pan. Bake according to the recipe directions.
