Seeking: Recipe for Sugarfree Cheesecake with Dates (Agave sweetened? No-bake?)

Bambellini | Mar 11, 2010 06:19 AM

Yes, I realize it's a tall order. And I'm not sure how I got myself into this pickle. (Well, actually I am, but that's a whole other story.)
Basically, I owe somebody a cheesecake. And not just any ol' cheesecake, I'm afraid...

A.) It has to be a cheesecake with dates (something I've never heard of, but I see there are some recipes online).
B.) However, due to dietary restrictions, I also can't use any sugar or (white) flour in the recipe. Agave nectar would be the sweetener of choice (there's no Splenda where I live, but I'm open to other suggestions).
C.) To make matters worse, sadly I have to make use of a very old, very fickle oven, which basically has just three settings: 1, 2 and 3. Or call them low, medium and high. Not necessarily stable temperatures, either. :(

Not one to give up easily, I'm thinking perhaps I should attempt to make an agave-sweetened, no-bake cheesecake with some dates thrown in (or maybe on top?), with a simple almond-meal & melted butter crust...

Any thoughts? Ideas? Suggestions? Or better yet: recipes?

Thanks in advance!
