Low carb chocolate cherry cheesecake

Here you go my next experiment with a high fat low carbohydrate dessert. Today I am making a low carbohydrate chocolate cherry cheesecake with coconut flakes.

Low Carb Crust
For the crust I took:
1 cup ground almonds
1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon
2 tablespoons of butter
In the old-fashioned way I use my fingers and mixed it together until it reached a good crust consistency. I lined my pan with baking paper and put the crust on top.

For the filling I used:
8 ounces cream cheese
1/4 cup sour cream

1 tablespoon cacao powder
10 drops liquid stevia any flavor
1/2 cup Rainier cherries
3 tablespoons unsweetened coconut flakes

Add other ingredients
Mixed together until relatively smooth. If you want to hold the cherries out and put them on the top just before cooking that's fine.

Blend together

Pour the filling over the crust.

Add filling on top
Bake 10 minutes at 475 degrees. Reduce the heat to 350 degrees and bake another 50 to 60 minutes. Cool on a wire rack for about an hour. Then refrigerate for 3 to 4 hours minimum before serving.
With the pan that I used I can tell it to 9 servings or to 12 servings so I will give you the statistics on both the fat content is 75% of the calories from fat .

For 9 servings it is 209 calories each; net carbs of 5 grams; protein of 5 .4 grams.
For 12 servings it is 156 calories each; net carbs of 3.7; protein of 4 grams.
I haven't tried it yet.  It just came out of the oven about half an hour ago and it is almost 1 AM.  This will be my treat for tomorrow afternoon.  I will cut it into 9 servings because I need about 250 calories 5 times a day.  So I will take a serving size picture tomorrow and let you know what I think.  Remember, this is still a test.  :^)
