Have you ever thought of letting nature define the menu? This week had a sensational low carb passion fruit cheesecake, that wouldn’t come out if it weren’t for nature defining the menu …
I explain: for a few months I have been signing a bag of organic products, from an agroecological site near my home.
It is amazing how much the number of varieties we eat jump… When people are in charge, we go to the market, always choosing the same things, in the same way.
In the bag, everything comes! In the last few things came that I wouldn’t buy in the market, like celery, an orange beet that I had never seen, endive… And this week, three beautiful and huge passion fruits.
By the time I saw the passion fruit in the bag, my brain already projected the image of this beautiful low carb passion fruit cheesecake, so strong that I couldn’t help putting it into action.

Without further ado, let’s go to the recipe!
Low Carb Passion Fruit Cheesecake Recipe
- 1 this
- 1 and ½ cup of peanut flour
- 1 tablespoon unsalted dry grated coconut
- 1 tablespoon of coconut flour
- 2 tablespoons of melted butter
- 2 tablespoons of sweetener (I used erythritol)
- 1 pote de cream cheese de 300 gr
- ½ cup of sweetener (I used erythritol)
- 3 eggs
- Juice of 2 passion fruit (I would have used 3 if I had)
- Pulp of 1 passion fruit with the seeds and 2 tablespoons of sweetener for the broth
Step by step
- In a bowl mix the flours (peanuts, unsalted dry coconut and coconut flour)
- Add the egg and melted butter and incorporate until a ball of firm dough (if necessary, adjust the texture with more peanut flour)
- Grease a baking dish with a removable bottom (I used a 25 cm one) with oil or butter and cover the bottom with the dough.
- Bake the dough in a preheated oven for 10 minutes at 180 degrees and remove from the oven. Leave the oven on.
- For the filling, beat the cream cheese with the sweetener and eggs
- Incorporate the passion fruit juice little by little
- Add the filling to the pre-roasted base and bake for another 25 minutes or until firm in the center
- Remove and let warm
- For the broth, in a small saucepan, place the pulp of a passion fruit with the seeds and 2 tablespoons of sweetener. Bring to the heat and mix until the sweetener dissolves.
- Place the stock on top of the warm cheesecake and refrigerate for at least 2 hours before serving.
Which flours can I substitute for?
Peanut flour (which surprises me positively every day) is mega easy to find and cheap. I bought 1 kilo of it for some recipes and ended up not buying others to use what was left, and it is very tasty!
A lot of people think that almonds are the best flour and they taste really good, but I particularly think that peanuts and cashews also beat a cake.
As for coconut flour, you can exchange it for psyllium or more peanut flour.

How much can I eat of the low carb passion fruit cheesecake?
In low carb there is no recommended amount for each recipe or food, but a daily quota of total carbohydrates in grams, keeping the quota you will have a result.
I don’t know how much carbohydrate you give for each serving, you can simulate that with the adjustments you make to the recipe using a free carbohydrate counting tool like FatSecret.
I haven’t counted carbs since my second or third week of low carb several years ago, just like the same things to satiety with total autonomy.
