Ingredients (15)

Gluten-Free Brownie Crust

Cheesecake Filling

Garnish

Start Cooking

For the Crust

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

  2. In a large bowl or the bowl of a standing mixer, combine dry ingredients.

  3. Add wet ingredients and mix until a smooth batter forms (use a hand mixer if you’re not using a standing mixer). The batter will be a little thicker than a typical brownie batter.

  4. Spray an eight- or nine-inch round springform pan with oil. Pour in batter and spread with a spatula or back of a spoon.

  5. Parbake for 15 minutes on the center rack.

For the Filling

  1. With a hand blender, blend farmer cheese and yogurt. Add remaining ingredients and mix until a thin batter forms.

  2. Pour batter on top of cooled brownie layer. Bake for 50 minutes.

Note:

For a sweeter cheesecake, adjust honey to 1⁄2 cup. If you have a "Full ‘N Free palette," decrease honey to 1/4 cup.

To Serve

  1. Allow the cake to cool completely, then cover and refrigerate overnight before serving. Top with fresh berries or as desired.

    Delicious, light and fluffy

    I made the cheesecake in a 9" pie crust! There was a little extra batter. I used corn starch instead of arrowroot starch. It came out delicious and so light!

    Yes, it won't be exactly the same but it is similar. You can always whip the cottage cheese to give it a more farmers cheese consistency.

    You can definitely swap it for spelt flour but it's not going to be as gooey and it might be a little drier.

    8" Pan is too small for amount of batter

    I stayed left over with way too much batter, my guess would be a 10" pan for this recipe. Otherwise it looks great! can't wait to taste...

    Hi- you can definitely find it at a health food market or online. However, cornstarch is a substitute.

    Freezer

    Can this cheesecake be frozen in advance?

    According to google cheesecakes freeze incredibly well. To freeze, place the cooled cheesecake on a baking pan and freeze, uncovered, until firm. Remove the cheesecake from the freezer, wrap it in heavy duty aluminum foil and place in a freezer bag. ... Thaw the cheesecake in the refrigerator overnight.
