    Has anyone just used egg whites instead of whole eggs?

    If you only use the whites I bet it will rise and then collapse. Use the whole egg or an egg substitute.

    I would try to include at least one yolk - the lecithin in the yolk acts as an emulsifier that will help stabilize the cake and keep fats/liquids/proteins from separating.

    OP: Did you take this picture?

    Yeap. Its my cake lol :) my dining room table, last time I checked ;) Why?

    Because it's beautifully composed, right down to the lighting and the juxtaposition of the wood and glass surfaces. Well done!

    Thanx. Instagram @paleo_tomek :)

    Hmmm I think you must be some kind of genius! I am making this cheesecake asap! Kind of surprised thought the protein would be a little higher than 19g per serving with those ingredients. Amazing job thanks for posting!

    Oh now I need to find some lactose free cream cheese so I can try it without being sick all day! Looks so yummy!

    Made one yesterday and just tried it. The texture is right on.

    I added 1/4 cup of splenda
    1/8 cup lime juice
    Other than that I followed the recipe exactly.

    Key lime cheesecake. IT is amazing.

    (Pro-tip from my regular cheesecake making days: If you put a pan of water in the oven under the cheesecake pan it keeps the top of the cheesecake from cracking! It comes out beautiful.)

    See, now I'm going to have to buy a new cake pan (Only have the 6"x2" not a 6"x3") because while I'll take steak over ice cream, chocolate, cake, or cookies, basically sweets in general, 99% of the time, Key Lime is my Kryptonite. Hehe

    I'll have to try that sometime. It sounds good.

    Op looks like there is cream or something on top of the cake? Did you add something extra to the top?

    I'm baking some right now! Was thinking of throwing some Walden farms chocolate or strawberry syrup on to add a little sweet

    Mine is cooling. I turned it in to a pumpkin cheesecake. (had some in the fridge that needed to be used)

    Will let you know how it tastes.

    Thanks for the recipe, I've made one with unsweetened cocoa powder and sweetener. It'll be my snack tomorrow :)

    @bellaa_x0 MUCH improvement over the first one I made so thank you for posting your recipe. Mine came out @190 cal and 20g protein per 8 servings. I topped it with sugar free strawberry jam for an extra 10 cals.

    The texture was spot on, it tasted like cheesecake.. definitely edible! Not bad for the macros ;)
