These mini keto cheesecake bites have zero net carbs each! They are miraculously delicious and a guilt-free low-carb dessert.
This recipe is so simple, that that’ll definitely become one of your go-to low carb desserts – and it gets easier the more you make it. You really can’t beat zero net carbs per serving, either!
Next time you have a hankering for something sweet, make a batch of these. They will curb those cravings and keep you full.
Even better, make a bunch of these and keep them in your freezer. That way, you’ll always have something guilt-free you can snack on.
You probably already have most, if not all, of the ingredients to make these mini keto cheesecake bites. If you don’t, they are definitely easy to find at your grocery store (no crazy or strange ingredients here!).
The crust has just 5 ingredients. When you buy the almond flour, make sure you’re grabbing flour, not almond meal. Almond meal will leave your cheesecake bites grainy.
The cheesecake filling has just four ingredients – and it’s mostly cream cheese and heavy whipping cream.
💭 Quick tips
When you make the cheesecake bites, use a silicone mold. This will be easier for the bites to come out of.
It’s also very important to use the right kind of sugar-substitute for each step. Both the crust and the filling need a confectioner substitute. This will give them the best texture.
I also suggest you use unsalted butter. If you use salted butter, just cut down on how much salt you use in the rest of the recipe.
For the entire recipe, please scroll down to the recipe card.
You’ll make the crust first. As you fill-up the silicone molds, only fill them ⅓ of the way full. You want to leave enough room for the cheesecake filling.
Next, you will start mixing the ingredients for the keto cheesecake filling. Using a stand mixer saves you a lot of time and effort. If you don’t have one, it’s worth the investment.
After you mix it together, add it on top of the crust. Then, just freeze the cheesecake bites!
Mix, scoop, freeze – it’s really as easy as that.
If you want them to be a little softer, let them freeze first and then store them in the refrigerator. They will stay fresh longer if you keep them in the freezer, but they will also have a very different texture.
🍽️ Serving suggestions
These cheesecake bites are a rich and decadent dessert. Enjoy them with a hot cup of coffee or tea.
These will also taste amazing with a salty snack like keto pepperoni chips. The combination of salty and sweet is classically delicious.
Or, serve them at a party with other low-carb party food such as keto sausage balls. These balls are individually portioned for easy snacking.
If you want to enjoy a really filling lunch, serve these little bites on the side with a southwest steak salad with spicy avocado dressing. The sweet and salty combination is amazing!
Just a little further down is the entire mini keto cheesecake bites recipe. First, I want to answer some questions you might have about it.
What Can I Use Instead Of A Silicone Mold?
If you don’t have a silicone candy mold, you can use a mini muffin tin instead. Just make sure you grease it first so that the cheesecake bites don’t stick to the pan.
You can also make them inside shot glasses if you want a fun and festive way to serve them.
What Can I Add On Top Of the Cheesecake Bites?
This recipe is an excellent base and there are lots of ways that you can customize it and change it up.
For a change of flavor, blend in a couple of tablespoons of berries to the cheesecake mixture. Or stir in bits of berries. You can also add in a splash of lemon or cherry extract.
Another idea is to drizzle some melted sugar-free chocolate on top.
Do you enjoy fall flavors like pumpkin spice? Sprinkle a little pumpkin pie spice on top before you freeze it!
Whatever you choose to add, just make sure it is sugar-free and low-carb.
Can I Eat Them For Lunch?
Even though these are low in carbs, they don’t have a lot of other nutrients that will replace your lunch.
You can eat them along with other healthy lunch ideas. Eat something with some fiber like a veggie-packed salad.
How Long Will They Stay Fresh In The Freezer?
These cheesecake bites will stay fresh in the freezer for up to 3 months. Remember to seal them completely before you store them long-term.
If you want them to be softer, keep them in the refrigerator. They will stay fresh in the fridge for up to a week.
How Can I Add A Different Flavor To The Crust?
Yes, you certainly can change the flavor of the crust. In fact, if you add a few tablespoons of sugar-free cocoa powder, you will make a delicious chocolate crust.
Or, you can keep the recipe as it is and just flavor the crust with some cinnamon or some pumpkin pie spice.
No matter how you change them, these bites are amazing!
Instead of buying snacks from the store without knowing what’s in them, next time you crave something sweet, make a batch of these. If you make a double batch, you’ll always have something you can snack on when the desire hits.
