Cheesecake with brownie crust – keto friendly

I really wanted to post the pictures of my recent strawberry-jam-making adventure but figured I ought to do another keto friendly recipe first. We had some good friends over for supper in June and it was a completely keto friendly menu (except for the quantity of wine of course).

Toby found this recipe on a website called All Day I Dream About Food and it seemed too good to be true. Let me tell you, it is pretty damn good.

As it was the first time I was trying the recipe I tried to follow it as closely as possible, well, except the part about melting the chocolate in the microwave. We don’t have one!

Chocolate, almond flour, walnuts, eggs, fake sugar, butter and vanilla all met together to form the brownie base of the cake.

It definitely makes it easier to change your approach to eating when you can eat stuff like this. Especially with good friends.
