The crust is made from a combination of almond and coconut flour. I use this recipe (it's also the same recipe I used for the quiche I made last week):
Keto Pie Crust | Ruled Me

Don't pre-bake the crust, though. I made that mistake. The 40 minutes of cooking time with the filling should be sufficient.

For the Filling:
2/3 cup unsweetened coconut flakes, divided
2 8-oz pks Philadelphia brand Neufchâtel cheese, softened
1/2 cup coconut milk (you can use the leftover for a curry)
1 cup Swerve brand confectioners style sweetener (or your favorite sugar substitute, to taste)
1/2 tsp vanilla
2 eggs

For the Topping:
1.5 cups heavy cream
1/2 tsp vanilla
Sugar substitute, to taste (I use Swerve confectioners style)

Pre-heat oven to 350F

Toast the coconut flakes in a dry pan over medium low heat on the stove top, stirring frequently. Don't let it burn. Set it to the side to cool.

In a food processor, combine half of the toasted coconut flakes, Neufchâtel, coconut milk, sweetener, and vanilla. Process until smooth. Add the eggs and process for a few more seconds, until just combined. Pour the filling into the pie shell.

Bake for 40-45 minutes. The filling will still be jiggly at this point.

Allow to cool completely. Whip the cream with the vanilla and sugar substitute. Top the cheesecake with the whipped cream and scatter the remaining toasted coconut flakes over the top.

Chill for several hours before serving.

Makes 12 servings.

That looks so divine. Chocolate cake is to absolutely die for when made with dark chocolate.

Addie, when I was mixing the ingredients also when I pulled the pan from the oven, it actually look pretty gross. But I had never baked with dark chocolate before, I presented it nicely in my domed cake pedestal and topped each serving with Blue Bunny Bunny Tracks, and it was a hit.

I REALLY needed a baked good of some sort yesterday, so I made
Quaker® Vanishing Oatmeal Raisin Cookies into bars with Dried Blueberries.

Meh... I subed the raisins for dried blueberries and used the "new recipe" that 's on the boxtop.
This recipe comes out crunchier than I prefer. It was good, but, meh...

The extra brown sugar is what made it chewier.

I hope you didn't put raisins in it. Not my favorite addition to foods. Like biting into a wet bug. Otherwise, it does look good.

I guess we don't agree on this one. Raisins and walnuts for me, Addie.
