This is a great recipe. I didn't find that it was grainy/gritty at all. Very light and fluffy...not as dense as full-fat cheese cake (which I love as well). I've made it twice now and my family can't stop eating it!
Chocolate-Almond Cheesecake Bars

This recipe had many steps from grinding almonds into "flour" and chopping almonds for the topping and used many ingredients only to produce a less than tasty result. The bars tasted very grainy/gritty with a slight hint of cheese cake. Only the bite of chocolate chips saved this recipe. I would never make this again.

Doubled this recipe and made in a 9x13 pan. Apart from the chocolate being a bit grainy, the texture was deliciously creamy. We used some fat free ricotta in place of 1/3 of the cream cheese, since we were running short. Used orange extract instead of vanilla. Really liked the flavor!
