Cheesecake is widely regarded as one of the most keto friendly desserts.

All the typical ingredients are amazing for keto, and you really get a chance to enjoy something delicious and sweet and still be in ketosis.

Cashews are great or keto, second only to macadamia buts. So making a crust out of them is a completely natural thing to do!

The kicker with nuts of any kind, is finding an inexpensive place to procure them. A lot of standard grocery stores charge an arm and a leg, but sometimes you can find a vendor that has them for an affordable cost or simply order them online.

Pro Tip: Visit an Indian store, you’ll definitely find cashews at a cheaper rate there.

Cashews are great for the crust, because they really have the perfect amount of crunch that you are looking for, as well as that smooth cashew-only flavor.
