Low Carb Cheese Cake

My amazing wife, among her many talents, makes a wonderful low carb cheese cake.  She has taken the recipe found in Maria Emmerich's "Secret Weight Loss Recipes" and modified it to our family's taste.  It has quickly become one of my family's favorites. 
Low Carb Cheesecake = 1 gram carb per serving
Individual spring-form serving pans

2 cups almond flour
1/4 cup coconut flour
1/2 cup butter melted
Pinch of salt
1/2 cup erythritol
Mix and press into spring-form pan.

5 (8 oz) packages cream cheese, softened
1 cup erythritol and 1 tsp liquid Stevia
1 TBS vanilla
1/2 cup whey Protein
1 cup sour cream
3 eggs

Preheat oven to 350F. Mix cream cheese, sweetener, protein and vanilla with an electric mixer
until blended. Add eggs one at a time, mixing on low after each until blended. Blend in sour
cream and pour over crust. Place a pan of water on the lower rack place cheesecake on rack
above. Bake for approximately 45 minutes until set. Watch carefully! 
Refrigerate overnight.
Freezes well too!

My wife will often bake them in individual sized pans (as in the picture above) so that I can pull one out of the freezer, let it thaw and cover it in whip cream and a sprinkle of berries.  Tastes fantastic!
One serving is = 1 gram of carbohydrate.
