Low-carb Heaven with Mini Cheesecakes!

Keto Friendly RecipeBaking a cheesecake is a very delicate process. It takes time, perfect measuring and a total understanding of how cheesecake batter bakes. However, making cheesecake does not have to be complicated, time-consuming or stressful- It can be fun and easy when you use our mini cheesecake recipe!

Making a batch of mini cheesecakes is a lot quicker and a lot simpler than whipping up a large cheesecake. They will be ready to eat in about half the time and, we have found that they bake much better. The smaller size seems to come out of the oven perfect every time! No need to worry about the surface cracking or overbaking these beauties! So say goodbye to those large cheesecake pans and hello to our perfect mini cakes.

This mini cheesecakes recipe is very keto-friendly as well, making it something that everyone can really enjoy regardless of the diet they are following. Cream cheese is high in fat which is a necessity on a keto diet (fat equals fuel!). The erythritol will give these little cheesecakes a nice sweetness without adding any carbs at all. It also blends well with the cheesecake batter, helping the cream cheese get fluffy and then dissolving when baked, making the mini cheesecakes nice and smooth. Almond meal is also low in carbs and adds a wonderfully nutty taste to the keto mini cheesecakes that you could never get with regular old white flour. Anyone who tries these mini cheesecakes will love them and never even suspect that they are low carb. They taste like the real thing- fluffy and refreshing.

Our keto cheesecake recipe is also super simple to make, taking only a few minutes to whip up and a short amount of time in the oven. However, to really appreciate their taste, it’s important to refrigerate them as long as you can. Giving them time to cool and set makes the texture even better. We refrigerated them overnight, but even a few hours will do. They will set very nicely and coaxing them out of the muffin tin will also be easier when they are nicely chilled and firm.

Another idea to help get the mini cheesecakes out of the tins is to also line the tins with cupcake liners before baking. This way, you can simply lift the paper liner up and pull out a perfect, individually sized cheesecake. You can even serve the cheesecakes in the paper liner, just like you would with a cupcake!

Ingredients
Crust
Cheesecake
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. To make the crust, melt some butter until liquid and mix in your almond meal until you have some that feels like crumbly play dough.
    Mix to make your crust
  2. Take about a teaspoon at a time and press the dough into the bottom of a muffin tin. Tip: line your pan with cupcake liners for easy removal! Cheesecake is very soft and if hard to scoop out without causing damage! Bake these crusts for about 5 minutes. They’ll come out slightly brown and crispy.
    Press almond meal into your cups
  3. Then take your room temperature cream cheese and beat it with an electric hand mixer or standing mixer until creamy. Then add vanilla extract, lemon, an egg and your sugar substitute, erythritol in our case. Beat until all combined.
    Your batter is ready for baking!
  4. Use an ice cream scooper to fill all the crust-bottomed muffin tin cups evenly almost to the top (the mini cheesecakes will rise while in the oven but will flatten while refrigerating). You can also line each cup with a cupcake liner to make removing the mini cheesecakes easier.
    Ready for the oven
  5. Bake at 350°F for about 15 minutes. The mini cheesecakes should be slightly jiggly. Let them cool in the refrigerator for ideally 24 hours. But if you’re strapped for time, try putting them in the freezer for as long as you can.
    Baked and straight to the fridge
  6. Once the mini cheesecakes are done cooling, slide a knife around the edges of each muffin cup to loosen them up. Then use a fork and your hands to help them out cleanly. As a delicious bonus, slice up some strawberries and arrange them however you like on top of the mini cheesecakes.

  7. We arranged ours in a flower pattern and added a dot of coconut butter in the middle to finish them off.
