I must say this is probably one of the easiest gluten-free cheesecake made from scratch recipe to make. No need for baking and the Gluten-Free Cheesecake Cups with Chocolate Raspberry Topping is perhaps one of the creamiest, most delicious desserts made in minutes. The only thing that takes time is the chilling of the cheesecake.

this gluten-free cheesecake is made with three layers,

The crust is made in a food processor with only three ingredients nuts, flaxseed and a sweetener. You can use honey, pure maple syrup or agave to sweeten the curst. Once the ingredients are processed, press the mixture into small serving cups.

For the second layer – the cheesecake. This layer is made with lite cream cheese, a sweetener such as a maple syrup, vanilla, lime juice and heavy cream. Whip these ingredients until soft peaks form and spoon the mixture over the crust.

For the third layer – the chocolate raspberry sauce. You will need about two minutes to make this chocolaty raspberry-infused sauce and only two ingredients -> Good quality gluten-free chocolate or chocolate chips and fresh raspberries. Simply heat the chocolate and raspberries in a small saucepan and pour over the cheesecake layer.

To finish this extraordinary gluten-free French dessert, you will need to chill it. Four hours should do it, but I always make this gluten-free cheesecake a day in advance and refrigerate it overnight. This gives the cheesecake that perfectly creamy, light, cheesecake texture.
