    Semi-primal cheese cake

    Primal Fuel
    OK I haven't made this yet but this is what I'm thinking:

    Use this for the crust:
    -3 cups almond flour --> 3 cups ground almonds
    -2 tablespoons sugar (stevia instead)
    -1/2 teaspoon salt
    -1/4 teaspoon baking soda
    -4 tablespoons cold unsalted butter
    -one large, beaten egg

    And this for the filling:

    -2 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese
    -3/4 cups white sugar --> use stevia/honey mix instead? maybe baking powder stevia for a better texture
    -1/4 cup milk --> don't have any almond milk or coconut milk on hand, what do you think? go for whole milk? buy coconut milk and use half the quantity?
    -2 eggs
    -1/2 cup sour cream --> using 1 cup full fat plain yogurt instead
    -1/2 tablespoon vanilla extract
    -1/8 cup all-purpose flour --> using 1/8 cup of ground almonds instead (will this ruin the texture? I never use the really fine almond flour, always home-ground almonds)

    I think you'd be better off, for now, with berries and whipping cream

    Primal-ish treats will only give you cravings for the real thing, and since you said you were getting over carb cravings, why go there?

    Really? I like almond pancakes better than real pancakes now. And I hate real banana bread now that I've perfected my own almond banana bread. This isn't only for me - I start exams tomorrow and my friends love to eat my baking. Plus I want to make the perfect primalish cheesecake by the time I'm married with kids. hehe
    it's more about the baking than eating it afterwards. I don't think I'll have any today, maybe a few bites tomorrow!!
    What do you think baking wise?

    My problem would be that I love cheesecake ... and things that taste like almonds ... so I'd probably eat the whole thing!

    +1 Not really helpful, if you are aiming to lose body fat.

    I am. Once again - this is for a large group of very hungry teenagers! I will have a few bites to see how good it is
    I just popped it in the oven. So excited!

    OH MY GOD! It turned out GREAT! The top was golden-ish - not like a cheesecake is meant to look, but the crust and the filling had the PERFECT consistency. I turned the oven off after 30 mins instead of 1 hour and left it in there for 2 hours. I had a slice and it was good except had a slightly bitter aftertaste from the stevia. Added a tiny bit of jam and it tasted GREAT. WOuld've been even better with strawberries...yum!
