Paleo Cheesecake

paleo-cheesecake

This is perfect for all cheesecake fans…. The texture is rich and creamy and, curiously, tastes better the longer you leave it – although that wasn’t long in our case!

You Will Need:-

For the Base:

1 + 1/2 cups of ground almonds

ground cinnamon

3 tblspoons melted butter

For the Filling:

4 packs of full fat cream cheese ( 1 lb)

4 eggs

1.5 teaspoon vanilla extract

1.5 teaspoons of lemon juice

1/4 cup of sour cream

1/4 cup of agave nectar (optional)

For decoration

Strawberries and fresh cream

Method:

1) Mix all the base ingredients together push into a pie dish and bake for 8-10 mins at 180 degrees C

2)Mix all the other ingredients together adding one in at a time.  If it looks lumpy, don’t panic!  Keep mixing for an extra minute and all lump issues will resolve.  Pour mixture onto base in pie dish.

3) Sit in a water bath (bain-marie)* and cook for about an hour (at 180 degrees C) (er …..the cheesecake not you)!

(* water bath: simply sit your cheesecake in a larger dish and fill the larger dish with water half way up the sides – don’t allow the water to penetrate the cheesecake at any time)

4) When cooked decorate and eat!

About Paleo Works

Paleo Works Have you ever wondered how you arrived at “being overweight” and thought how difficult it is to get rid of and keep off those excess pounds? Hi, I’m Katie and together with Mike my husband, we are Paleo Works. As a busy working mum of four, I often watched others embark on weight loss progammes only to return to their start weight (and then some) shortly after reaching their target. Why was this happening? Conventional dietary wisdom would have us believe that it’s YOU who has failed. But Mike and I thought different. We felt that there had to be something wrong with that conventional dietary wisdom after all we can’t all be hopeless? So we studied intensely, sought out advice and read avidly. We questioned robustly and talked with many on various 'dieting' regimes. What we found was radical, our story has to be told, our knowledge has to be shared. So If you are ready to stop blaming your self for being overweight and ready to change your approach to weight loss then contact us and let’s get started!
