classic keto cheesecake

For the Filling
 3 (8-ounce) packages cream cheese, softened
 5 egg yolks
 2 whole eggs
 ¼ cup vanilla protein powder
 3 tbsp granulated erythritol
 1 tsp vanilla extract
 ½ tsp kosher salt
For the Crust
 ½ cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened
 ¼ cup protein powder
 ¼ cup high-fiber coconut flour
For Garnish (optional)
 Fresh Berries

Preheat the oven to 350°F and coat a 12-inch springform pan with cooking spray


Using a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment or a large mixing bowl with a hand mixer, blend the filling ingredients until smooth.


Place the ingredients for the crust in another mixing bowl and mix together with a fork until a rough dough forms.


Press the crust into the bottom of the greased sprinform pan and par-bake for 4 to 5 minutes. Option to bring the crust up the sides or just leave it on the bottom layer.


Place a sheet pan in the oven and fill it 1/3 full of water to make a water bath for the springform pan. Pour the filling over the par-baked crust and place the springform pan in the water bath. Bake for 32 to 35 minutes, until the keto cheesecake is firm but not browned.


Remove the keto cheesecake from the oven and allow to cool to room temperature in the pan, then remove the outer ring from the pan and place the cake in the refrigerator to chill.


To serve, cut the keto cheesecake into 16 equal slices and garnish with berries if desired. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.
