Mix dry ingredients in large mixing bowl. Cut cream cheese into cubes and place in smaller mixing bowl. Mix with electric mixer until cubes are gone. Or put nut butter in bowl. Melt butter and pour warm butter over cream cheese or nut butter. Mix with electric mixer until smooth. Add eggs one at a time, mixing on lowest speed just until combined.

Grease a 9 x 9 baking pan with coconut oil or butter. Pour one half of the cake batter into the pan and smooth into an even layer. Crumble the walnut filling evenly over the batter. Carefully place the rest of the batter on top of the filling gently smoothing it without disturbing the filling. Sprinkle the chopped walnuts over the top. Evenly cover with xylitol.
