This is an adaption of a cheesecake recipe I wrote down years ago, it makes a lot. This will freeze very well, great for breakfast too!



  • 12 oz bag brazil nuts, or almonds can be used (2 cups)
  • 4 tbsp unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar Swerve


  • 40 oz. cream cheese, softened
  • 1.25 cup powdered Swerve
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 2 tsp lemon juice
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 6 eggs


For Crust

  • Pre heat oven to 350 degrees
  • Spread brazil nuts (or almonds) on a baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes, remove from oven and allow to cool
  • Add nuts to a food processor and pulse until nuts are evenly ground, add the melted butter and brown sugar. Pulse again until well combined.
  • Line the bottom of a 9″ springform pan with parchment, press the crust mixture evenly into the bottom of the pan. Place in the refrigerator.

For the Filling

  • Increase oven heat to 500 degrees F
  • In a large mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese until smooth. Next add the vanilla, lemon juice, and powdered Swerve, beat until well combined.
  • Add 1 egg yolk and 3 eggs, beat until incorporated, scraping sides down as you go. Add the remaining egg yolk and eggs, beat until incorporated.
  • Remove crust from refrigerator, carefully pour the filling into the pan.
  • Place the springform pan on a baking sheet and place in oven, bake for 10 minutes, then reduce heat to 200 degrees and bake for 90 minutes.
  • The cheesecake will look soft in the center, allow to cool to room temperature, run a knife around the outside of the cheesecake, then place in refrigerator to chill for atleast 4 hours. This will freeze very well also.
