We made a huge batch of low carb lasagna this week (recipe coming soon!!)
I really wanted a light, fresh dessert to follow up after dinner, and came
up with this yummy (and low carb!) recipe for Lemon Cheesecake Bars.

Even if you don’t follow a low carb diet, you cannot tell.  Did I mention
they are gluten free too? I know, it’s hard to find gluten free recipes that
your whole family will like, everyone loved this one.  Those of us with
food allergies and wheat-addicts alike.

Are you ready to make a yummy dessert you can feel good about?
Let’s bake, oh wait, it’s no bake too, I know right?!

Low Carb Lemon Cheesecake Bars
serves 6-8
(about 3.25 net carbs per serving when cut into 8 servings)

Lightly grease a loaf pan (like the 9″ x 5″ size) with a little butter and set aside.

Ingredients:

  • One cup of whole, raw, unsalted almonds ground up (blender or food processor)
  • 2 T. butter melted
  • One 8 ounce pkg of cream cheese, softened
  • One cup of boiling water
  • One .30 ounce box of sugar free lemon Jello
  • 2 T. lemon zest
  • 1/2 cup of Splenda
  • Extra Splenda and lemon zest for garnish

In your blender or food processor, grind up almonds until they look like a fine ground mix.
Remove from container and mix with melted butter in a bowl, spread and press into prepared
baking pan.  Set aside.  In a medium mixing bowl, combine the boiling water and Jello.  Stir
until Jello is dissolved. Add Splenda and cream cheese, and use a hand mixer to blend.  Fold
in lemon zest, and pour over the crust in the baking pan.  Cover and refrigerate for a few hours
or until set.  Cut into squares before serving and garnish with extra Splenda and lemon zest.

Easy right? Oh and they are just so yummy.  Yeah, that means I ate one for breakfast today too.

    • Hi Aviva!

      I see I missed that, thank you!! I just updated the recipe to reflect an approximate net carb count of 3.25 per serving when dividing the recipe into 8 servings. Thanks for catching that, have a wonderful week 🙂
