Low-carb Heaven with Mini Cheesecakes!
Baking 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!
