What You'll Need

  • Crust
  • 2 cups almond flour
  • 1/4 cup shredded coconut
  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) margarine, softened
  • 1/4 cup sugar substitute (we used Truvia)
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup sugar-free chocolate chips
  • Cheesecake Filling
  • 1 (8-ounce) package reduced-fat cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup sugar substitute
  • 1/4 cup fat-free sour cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

What to Do

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Coat an 8-inch square baking dish with cooking spray.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine flour, coconut, walnuts, baking powder, and salt.
  3. In a large bowl, beat margarine with sugar substitute until fluffy. Beat in egg and vanilla extract. Add flour mixture and beat until dough comes together; stir in chocolate chips. Press three-quarters of dough into bottom of baking dish; set remaining dough aside.
  4. Bake 12 minutes, then remove from oven.
  5. To make Cheesecake Filling, in a large bowl, beat cream cheese, sugar substitute, and sour cream until combined. Beat in egg and vanilla until smooth. Pour filling over crust. Crumble remaining dough over top of filling, pressing lightly.
  6. Bake 25 to 30 minutes, or until filling is set in center and crust is golden. Let cool, then refrigerate 4 hours, or until firm. Cut into bars and serve.

Recipe directions call for an egg to be added to the cheesecake filling but is not listed in the items needed. One egg for the crust and one egg for the filling.

recipe calls for sugar substitute for crust and cheese cake filling, but only lists it once in list of ingrdients

Hi there! We're so sorry for the error. The recipe has been updated to reflect the correct ingredients.

I made this and I was pleasantly surprised! It was my first dessert using a sugar substitute like Truvia. It was so yummy and satisfying! Even my husband liked them! I couldn't find sugar free chocolate chips, however, so I used dark chocolate instead. I will definitely be making these again!

These would be so satisfying! I can't believe how low carb they are! I've had some almond flour in the freezer, not knowing what to do with it, but I can finally use it to make these bars.

Yum! These would be perfect for a bake sale!

Gelatin and tuna with pea?Is that lovely?

What recipe are you referring to? Those ingredients are not in this recipe.
