1/4 c. shredded coconut
1/2 c. (1 stick) butter, melted
3 (8-oz.) blocks cream cheese, softened to room temperature
16 oz. sour cream, at room temperature
1 tbsp. Stevia
2 tsp. pure vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 300°. Grease an 8 or 9-inch spring form pan, and cover the bottom and edges with foil. In a medium bowl, mix together the flours, coconut, and butter. Press the crust into the bottom and a little up the sides of the prepared pan. Place the pan in the fridge while you make the filling.

In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese and sour cream together, then beat in the stevia and vanilla. Add the eggs one at a time, mixing after each addition. Spread the filling evenly over the crust.

Place pan in a water bath, then bake for 1 hour to 1 hour 20 minutes, until it only slightly jiggles in the centre. Turn oven off, but leave the cake in the oven with the door slightly ajar to cool slowly for an hour.

Remove pan from water bath and take off foil then let chill in the fridge for at least five hours or overnight. Slice and garnish with strawberries.
