How to Make a Keto Oreo Cheesecake
Ready to see how to create this decadent treat? First, you make the crust, then add the filling and bake.
Create the crust
- Crush the biscotti cookies into crumbs by either pulsing them in a food processor or crushing them inside of a plastic bag.
- Divide the crumbs and set half aside.
- Mix the other half of the cookie crumbs with the melted butter.
- Press the cookie and butter mixture into the bottom of a greased 9-inch springform pan.
- Place the pan in the refrigerator.
Make the filling and assemble
- Add the cream cheese, sweetener, and heavy whipping cream to a large mixing bowl. Blend with an electric mixer until smooth and no lumps remain in the batter.
- Add the eggs, coconut flour, and vanilla. Beat until smooth.
- Remove the crust from the refrigerator.
- Pour half of the filling over the prepared crust.
- Sprinkle the remaining half of the cookie crumbs over top.
- Pour the other half of the filling on top of the cookie crumb layer.
Bake and allow to cool
- Place the cheesecake in an oven preheated to 350°F (175°C).
- Bake until the cookies and cream cheesecake is golden on top and the center is almost solid, about 1 hour. The center should still have a bit of jiggle to it.
- Remove the cheesecake from the oven and allow it to cool on a wire rack.
- Once cool, run a knife around the outside edge to loosen the cake from the pan, then remove the spring form and transfer the cheesecake to a serving platter.
Top with homemade whipped cream if desired, then dig in to your cheesecake!
Using Keto Oreos
One of the most important parts of the cheesecake is the cookies themselves. You want them to add a little crispy texture and chocolate flavor to every bite!
When I first made my chocolate keto biscotti, I instantly knew they would be perfect for a recipe like this one. That was the very first way I made this decadent dessert.
Over the years, it’s been fun to experiment with other cookie options. I love the original, but I think my new favorite way to make this recipe is with my keto Oreos!
After all, Oreos are the cookie used in a traditional cookies n' cream cheesecake. Once I perfected my low carb Oreos, I immediately had to make this recipe.
So which cookies should you use? To be honest, I love both versions. Which means you’ll just have to try each one and see which you like best!
Customize the Sweetness
This dessert is a little less sweet than cookies and cream usually is. I always thought the traditional version was a little too sweet, so I wanted to create a recipe that was more balanced.
If you prefer sweeter desserts, you can certainly add more sweetener. Especially if I’m bringing this cheesecake to a party with non-keto friends and family, I usually sweeten it up a bit.
And to top it all off, be sure to serve it with homemade whipped cream for the full effect!
