CBD cheesecake bites
Do you know what else is good besides CBD? The answer is cheesecake. This sugar-free CBD oil recipe is going to change how you look at cheesecakes.
For the cookie base:
- ½ cup almond flour
- ½ tsp vanilla extract
- 1 beaten egg
- 4 tbsp cocoa powder (unsweetened if possible)
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 tbsp coconut oil or clarified butter if preferred
For the cream cheese filling:
- ½ cup almond butter
- ¼ tsp vanilla extract
- 5 full droppers of CBD oil
- 1 cup cream cheese
- A pinch of vanilla bean paste
First, we are making the dough. Preheat your oven to 300 F. Use a medium bowl to combine the almond flour, vanilla extract, baking, powder, salt, and cocoa. While mixing the ingredients, add egg, coconut oil, and stir again until combined.
Scoop out the cookies and place them on a prepared sheet of parchment paper. It’s recommended to make them about 1-2 inches wide when pressed down. Now bake the cookies you prepared in the oven for up to 15 minutes, or until they are crispy.
Take the cookies out of the oven and let them cool down to room temperature. As they lose heat, they will get crispy and more delicious. So don’t worry if the cookies are soft at the beginning. Now, for the filling, combine all the ingredients above in a bowl of a stand mixer and mix until smooth.
Fold the mixture in half of the crumbled cookies and stir until well combined. Scoop out one ball of the cheesecake filling and empty it on top of the remaining cookie crumbles. Roll so the cream cheese is covered in the cookies. Now for the last step. Move your cheesecakes bites to the freezer. Serve them cold.
