Pumpkin & White Chocolate Cheesecake Recipe




This pumpkin cheesecake is perfect for those looking for a fall dessert while still sticking to a low carb diet. This recipe includes a smooth, rich white chocolate ganache This give you enough white chocolate to get your chocolate fix without sacrificing too many carbs. Each serving of cheesecake has about 14 grams of carbs.

Besides the creamy, delicious fall flavors of the pumpkin and cinnamon this dessert is easy to make, without consuming all of your time. The only part of this dessert that is baked is the crust. The crust consists of almond meal, also known as almond flour. Almond meal is something you can purchase at the store or you can make your own. Making your own almond flour only requires a food processor. Grind the almonds in the food processor until they are finely ground into a powder consistency.
