Peanut Butter Chocolate Cheesecake

I made this for my birthday and it was amazing. YUM! (And gluten free!) I found the recipe at the Growing Home Blog and only changed the presentation. Delicious!


1 cup almond flour
1/4 cup melted butter
1/2 cup sugar

2 8 oz. packages of cream cheese, softened
1 cup sugar
1 1/2 cups peanut butter
1 1/2 cups whipping cream

1 cup chocolate chips
1/4 cup whipping cream


Stir almond flour, butter, and first amount of sugar together. Pat into spring-form pan and bake at 350 F for 10-15 minutes or until edges are golden. Cool.

Beat cream cheese, sugar, and peanut butter together. In a separate bowl, whip cream. Fold into cream cheese mixture and pour over crust. Cool in fridge for 2 hours or until hardened.

Melt chocolate chips and whipping cream over low heat in a small saucepan. Pour over cheesecake. Garnish with peanuts. Chill until serving.

If I have labeled a recipe as GlutenFree or Dairy Free but it appears to have those ingredients in it... that means the recipe is still delicious with substitutes/replacements. Ex: soy milk, lactose-free cheese, Bragg's liquid aminos (for soy sauce), all-purpose gluten free flour (Better Batter is my favorite), etc. Please check your individual ingredients to be sure they are GF or DF, if that is what you need.
