Low-carb eating doesn’t mean having to give up your favorite desserts. The recipe below will satisfy even the strongest cravings. It’s a rich, peanut butter-flavored cheesecake with an almond flour crust. I just know you're going to love this one.
Sometimes when I’m feeling super decadent, I make a simple dark chocolate ganache to spread on top. It’s a chocolate peanut butter cup cheesecake delight that I could eat every day of my life. If you don’t want to make ganache, you could just shave dark chocolate into curls over the top.
