  1. Preheat the oven to 325F and grease a 9×9 inch baking pan. 
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the almond flour, cocoa powder, sweetener and salt. Add the melted butter and water and stir until the mixture begins to clump together.
  3. Press the mixture firmly and evenly into the bottom of the pan and bake about 15 minutes, or until just firm to the touch. Remove and let cool. 

Cream Cheese Layer:

  1. In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese and sweetener together until smooth. Beat in the vanilla.. 
  2. Add the cream and beat until smooth, then spread over the cooled crust and refrigerate while preparing the chocolate layer. 

Chocolate Pudding Layer:

  1. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, combine almond milk, whipping cream and sweetener. Bring to a simmer, stirring to dissolve the sweetener.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk the egg yolks until smooth. Slowly whisk about 1/2 cup of the hot cream mixture into the yolks to temper. Then slowly whisk tempered yolks back into saucepan.
  3. Reduce heat to medium low and sprinkle surface with the xanthan gum, whisking vigorously to combine. Whisk in the cocoa powder and cook until thickened, about 3 or 4 minutes. Remove from heat and add the butter pieces and vanilla. Whisk until smooth.
  4. Let cool 15 minutes and then spread over cheesecake layer. Refrigerate at least 2 hours.

Whipped Cream Topping:

  1. Beat the cream with sweetener and vanilla extract until stiff peaks form. Spread over the chocolate pudding layer. Dust with cocoa powder (this works best through a fine sieve). Use a vegetable peeler or cheese slicer to shave chocolate over top.
  2. Chill another hour to help set completely.
