I’ve recently found out a large variety of gluten free chocolate chip cookies. While I don’t have a gluten intolerance I thought I should try and see how my tummy feels if I switch to a gluten free cheesecake instead of the traditional one. Turns out even if you don’t have a problem with gluten, eating gluten free is quite beneficial to your body and well being; I felt a lot lighter after having a goof portion of this yummy gluten free cheesecake recipe, meaning that my tummy did not get bloated as it usually happens after I eat sweets and/or carbs!

Gluten free chocolate chip cookies cheesecake
For the crust
- 20 gluten free chocolate chip cookies
- 10 tablespoons unsalted butter melted
For the cheesecake
- 12 oz cream cheese softened
- 1/4 cup heavy cream room temperature
- 1 egg room temperature
- 1/4 cup powder sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
For the berry jam topping
- 14 oz mixed berries fresh or frozen
- 7 oz sugar
- Preheat oven to 350°F.
- Line a cake mold with baking paper
- Place the cookies in a plastic bag, preferably a resealable one.
- Seal all but one inch of the bag and roll with a rolling pin to crush the cookies or use a meat beater. You can also process them in a food processor until they are a fine crumb.
- Stir together cookie crumbs and melted butter.
- Press the mixture into the bottom of the cake mold.
- Beat room temperature cream cheese by hand or a mixer until fluffy (I'd recommend a mixer).
- Beat in room temperature heavy cream.
- Beat in egg, powder sugar and vanilla extract until no lumps remain (if you use all ingredients at room temperature, no lumps will form).
- Evenly distribute cream cheese mixture over the crust.
- Bake for 25-30 minutes, until the cake begins to brown.
- Cool completely and refrigerate for at least 3 hours or overnight.
- To make the topping, mix berries and sugar and boil for 15-20 minutes. If you want it with more syrup, 15 minutes will be enough. Stir in constantly once the mixture comes to a boiling point, particularly for the last 5 minutes.
