Blackberry and Lemon Keto Cheesecake Bar Recipe Method:
1. Almond Flour Crust: Preheat oven to 180C. Line an 8×8 inch baking tray with parchment paper. Mix the melted butter, almond flour and eryhtritol in a bowl and then transfer to your parchment paper lined tray pressing the mixture down and coating the base evenly. Bake for 7-10 minutes until the crust starts to brown around the edges. Remove tray from oven and set aside to cool.
2. Blackberry Sauce: add blackberries, erythritol and water to a saucepan and boil on a medium-high heat for 10-15 mins, stirring occasionally, until the mixture thickens into a sauce. Set aside to cool.
3. Lemon Cheesecake Layer: in a large mixing bowl add all of the cheesecake layer ingredients and whisk until smooth. Once smooth spread the mixture evenly over the cooled crust. Then spread the cooled blackberry sauce over the cheesecake layer.
4. Coconut Crumble: Add the butter, almond flour, desiccated coconut and erythritol to a small blender or food processor and pulse until it resembles a crumb like texture. Once ready sprinkle over the blueberry layer.
5. Bake for 20 minutes at 180C.
6. Allow to cool completely, for 45 mins-1hr, before slicing into 9 square bars. Garnish with extra blackberries and lemon if desired.
