Keto Cheesecake Cupcakes

Baking a cheesecake is a very delicate process, but it doesn’t have to be! Making a batch of mini cheesecakes is a lot quicker and a lot simpler! This mini cheesecakes recipe is very keto friendly- the cream cheese is high in fat, while the erythritol and almond meal are low in carbs. You could fool anyone with these keto treats, they taste like the real thing- fluffy and refreshing.

They’re super simple to make, but to really appreciate their taste, it’s important to refrigerate them as long as you can. We refrigerated them overnight, but even a few hours will do. They will set very nicely and coaxing them out of the muffin tin won’t be too hard. To help get the mini cheesecakes out of the tins you could also line the tins with cupcake liners before baking.

Sometimes you just have a craving for cheesecake.  The great thing about the Keto diet is that cheesecake is a delicious dessert we can indulge in nearly guilt free.  High in fat, moderate in protein and low in carbs it’s actually a pretty complete Keto food.  To be completely honest I’ve eaten cheesecake for breakfast on Keto and felt no remorse.
