Process nuts in a small food processor until very fine crumbs…(You may need to do this in batches)

In a medium mixing bowl combine nut crumbs & the 1 tbspn coconut flour & mix well. Add melted butter & mix until evenly combined.

Press mixture firmly & evenly over base of pan. Put in fridge while you prepare filling.

FILLING

Cream cheese can be softened in microwave oven on low for a minute or more so it can be easily beaten.

Beat cream cheese & sugar substitute until smooth. Add eggs & beat until smooth, then add coconut flour, lemon juice & zest & mix until combined.

Pour mixture into prepared base & smooth top & bake for 50 -60 minutes until just set & centre wobbles slightly.

Allow to cool & then serve with fresh or thawed frozen berries & whipped cream.

Variation : scatter base with fresh berries before pouring over cheesecake mixture
