When using Low fat cream cheese and unsweetened coconut, it amounts to 8 carbs (including 1 fiber) per slice.

If you have a Trader Joe's in your area, they carry both almond meal and hazelnut meal in 1 pound bags for about $1.50. Health food stores and "bulkfoods.com" also carry nut meals. I use them all the time for coating meats/fish and baking/frying them.

THIS WAS GREAT!!!! However I suspect the wonderful author of this recipe might be British(?) I think the baking at 180 is for Celsius-- which I converted to 350 Fahrenheit. I made my own Almond meal by grinding up almonds (I didn't know where to find it). The 125 Grams of melted butter is about 1 Stick, and the 750 grams chream cheese is about 16 oz. I also shredded my own coconut-- because I couldn't find any that wasn't sweetened with sugar. Thank you for this wonderful cheesecake. LisaJo
