How to Make this Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Recipe

For the Chocolate Chip Cookie Layer

Mix the ingredients for the bottom layer in a large bowl. This would include almond flour, coconut flour, monk fruit, erythritol, butter, salt, and egg.

Use a hand mixer or mix the ingredients in the bowl of a stand mixer at medium speed. You can use a food processor for this part if you prefer but it is not necessary. 

After everything is combined, sprinkle chocolate chips into the mixture and fold them into the chocolate chip cookie dough. Pour into a 9 x 9 or 8 x 8 pan that has been lined with parchment paper and greased with melted butter.

After you have prepared the baking dish, spread the mixture into the bottom of the pan. be sure to pour an even layer across the pan for best results.

Heat oven to 25 degrees and bake for 15 – 20 minutes. 

For the Cheesecake Batter 

In a separate bowl, you will make the cheesecake batter by mixing cream cheese, vanilla extract, monk fruit, erythritol, and lemon juice together. 

Boil water and then stir in the gelatin. Once gelatin dissolves and the mixture is combined, pour into the cream cheese mixture.  Beat cream cheese mixture at a low speed as you add in the hot water mixture.

Depending on your preference for a creamy texture or a chewy cream cheese filling, you can add more gelatin. I prefer the texture of 3 gelatin packets but this recipe works well with 2 for a more creamy cheesecake. Refrigerate until the chocolate chip cookie dough is finished baking.

Pour batter on top of the finished chocolate chip cookie dough, scraping the mixture off of the sides of the pan. Smooth out the creamy filling and try not to catch any fine crumbs when spreading overtop the cookie crust.

How do You Store this Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Recipe? 

Cover the cake pan without touching the top of the cheesecake with plastic wrap or aluminum foil. Refrigerate for an hour before serving. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for one week or freeze to keep the leftover cheesecake bars longer.

If you prefer this treat at room temperature, pull these delicious desserts out a half-hour before enjoying them. Use a sharp knife and cut this simple recipe into bars.
