I wish someone would have told me a long time ago that adding toasted coconut and pecans to my cheesecake would take it to an entirely different level!
Had I known what I know now, I would have done this years ago!
Who would have known that when you mix pecans and coconuts with cheesecake it would be like having a party in your mouth!
To create the recipe I used the same cheesecake recipe that I created for my low carb berry goat cheese cheesecake.
The reason why I love using the goat cheese cheesecake recipe for this is because the goal cheese gives the cheesecake such a intense flavor and it makes the cheesecake extra rich.
Then of course we use Lakanto Granulated Sweetener which taste like sugar except you don't have to worry about any of the calories and side effects!
And once you add the pecans and coconut – the flavor gets unreal!
If you've never used goat cheese in your recipes before then you're gonna love the taste of it!
I started using goat cheese in my recipes a long time but mainly used it on salads and vegetables, like my low carb creamy goat cheese zucchini recipe.
Then I went to a restaurant where they served flaming berries over sweetened goat cheese.
And because of all of the carbs I was only able to taste a small bit of it but decided after that one taste that I absolutely had to come up with my own version of low carb berries and goat cheese.
Then after making that recipe I sorta went goat cheese crazy and started using goat cheese in several of my recipes!
And every since I made the very berry goat cheese cheesecake, my husband won't have his cheesecake any other way!!!
What I love the most about this particular recipe is the simplicity of it!
I mean it has a few ingredients but the process of making these cheesecake bars is actually pretty simple:
1. Add all of the cheesecake items ingredients to a bowl and mix them together until it's nice and creamy.
3. Assemble all of the ingredients and bake then allow to cool before serving and of course enjoy!
