  • 2.5oz dark chocolate bar (100% cacao)

Instructions

  1. In a double broiler or microwavable bowl (two minutes in microwave), melt chocolate and coconut oil over low heat until smooth.
  2. Once melted, pour 2 teaspoons of chocolate mixture into each silicon cup* or tray (24 bites total).
  3. Place tray or cups in freezer while you prepare the filling.
  4. In a saucepan (or microwavable bowl) melt remaining ingredients: cream cheese, peanut butter, heavy whipping cream, Erythritol, and vanilla over low heat until smooth. Helps to whisk at the end in order to smooth out any lumps.
  5. Pull tray out of freezer and spoon cream cheese filling into each cup.
  6. Freeze in covered container until bites easily peel away from silicone (about 1 hour).

* You can use mini baking tins if you prefer, though I find silicone to be the easiest to work with.

If you choose to make an entire cheesecake rather than bites, it can easily be done. I’d recommend using a spring form and freezing the cake for at least 2 hours (for easy slicing). Keep in mind, bigger pieces mean bigger macros. I’ve calculated the following macros under the assumption that you’ve cut your cheesecake into 8 standard slices.

Yield: 8 slices  //  Serving size: 1 slice  //  Prep time: 20 minutes (+2 hours to cool)
Fat: 30g // Carbs: 10g // Protein: 5g // Sugar: <2g
