Low carb gluten free no bake mini ricotta cheesecakes that will keep your portion size in control. Guilt-free high fat snacks with only 3 grams net carbs.
Lately, sweets have been all about portion control for me. I find that molds are a great way to even out a recipe that doesn't require any slicing or measuring. Like these delicious no bake mini ricotta cheesecakes!
I've also been into the quick and easy type of recipes. There are so many things to do and not enough time to do all of them.
When it comes to blogging, I finally decided that I need to hire help. I just can't do it all by myself anymore, especially while keeping up a full time job.
Since returning to this blog a little over a year ago, I have been committed to publishing a minimum of 2 posts a week, but I prefer doing 3. Sometimes, it's close to impossible to get that extra post in, but I've been pretty successful squeezing it in.
Although I am capable of handling the technical aspects of blogging, I ended up hiring a web designer earlier this year. I just didn't have time to make the design changes I wanted.
Last year during my Thanksgiving holiday break from work, I spent a full two days redesigning this blog. I'm at a point now, where it just makes more sense to hire help so I can enjoy more time with my family.
I know a lot of people have complained about the ads on this blog. Realize that this is required to bring in enough money to keep this blog going.
I have been slowly removing some of the ads and trying to arrange them so they aren't too annoying. I also upgraded the computer hosting this site to help speed things up. And, I'm planning to hire a virtual assistant to free up more of my time.
There's so many things going on behind the scenes of a blog. It's not all fun either. Sure, you get great goodies in the mail to try and share with your readers, but there's a lot of hard work that has to be done to keep a blog going with fresh content each week.
I love to share my food creations with others like these low carb gluten free no bake mini ricotta cheesecakes. I enjoy connecting with people who have discovered the many benefits that a low carb diet offers.
Over the last five years, I have met so many wonderful people that have told me how much my recipes have helped them. This is what has truly driven me to continue with this website.
If you are reading this section of the recipe post, I'm really glad to have you here. I know many people will just scroll right down to the bottom for the low carb no bake mini ricotta cheesecakes recipe. So thanks for actually reading!!!
Now, back to controlling your dessert portions. I have some great silicone cupcake liners that I picked up at a local TJ Maxx years ago.
Funny thing is that I rarely use these liners for making cupcakes. They are perfect for making fat bombs like my Chocolate Peanut Butter and White Chocolate ones.
I've also used them for making baked cheesecake muffins. These handy silicone molds were just the right size to make my latest recipe, low carb gluten free no bake mini ricotta cheesecakes.
My only complaint is that the narrow bottom of the silicone muffin molds made it a bit difficult to remove the cheesecakes. However, I just ate most of these no bake mini ricotta cheesecakes right out of the molds!
I made these with the fantastic Sukrin Fiber Gold Syrup, but I've read that the fiber carbs in this syrup can spike insulin so please it is with caution. If you happen to be sensitive to the fiber sweetener, you can still make these low carb mini ricotta cheesecakes by using a sugar free pancake syrup instead.

Do you have to use silicone cups. Will paper liners work?
Paper liners work. It's just a preference to use silicone so they release easier.
Can I add grapefruit zest and a little bit of grapefruit juice a 1tps
I don't see why not. That small amount shouldn't impact carbs much if at all.
Read about Sukrin Gold Fiber Syrup. From what I have found it is not low glycemic, and may be dangerous for people with diabetes, and not keep people on keto. Read the the reviews of it on Amazon. I will not be making this recipe unless there is a different sweetener, even though it sounds yummy.
You can use a low carb maple flavored syrup or the ChocZero Honest Syrup.

From one engineer to another, congrats to you! What a great blog! I'm also a poisoned engineer (rocket fuels) and I'm on a special diet(s) gluten free, bland, no caffeine because of chelation and ulcers. I find your recipes very good, very easy, and just what the doctor ordered. Who said bland and high fiber has to be boring? Not you!
Definitely not! Low carb gluten free has never been boring for me! Always great to connect with other engineers. I tried giving up caffeine, and was successful for a few years, but eventually went back. Coffee is one of my true loves and the decaf wasn't cutting it.

Thanks for all you do for us!!
My pleasure Mary!
I would like to make these tonight for a party tomorrow, have you ever frozen them?
They can be made ahead and frozen. You'd just have to thaw in the refrigerator prior to eating.
What size cream cheese?
Lisa, oh these are so yummy!! Could a person substitute the Fiber Syrup with Swerve?
You could, but the crust wouldn't hold together very well. You might want to add a bit more butter.
What is the nutritional information for using low carb syrup option?
If you use Walden Farms, you'll cut back carbs and calories. The Fiber Syrup Gold has 30 calories and 15g total carbs (14g of which are fiber) per tablespoon. Walden Farms pancake syrup has 0 calories and 0 carbs.
I personally don't mind the 'story' before the recipe. A lot information, some of which I find useful, such as links to a previous recipe that I might be interested in - OR - healthful bits, such as that Sukrin Gold spikes blood sugar for some people. Thank you Lisa for continuing to make fabulous tasting food enjoyed by everyone.
One thing that would help, I believe, is to reduce the size of your photographs greatly. They are huge and unnecessary. Also, flatten the layers and save as jpgs or gifs - cut a lot of the dialogue - or place the recipe at the top and the chat below. I'm,, personally not interested in the stories, just recipes and info about them. There are too many pictures and they are too big. Best to you.
Did I miss something?
The recipe says to divide it between
12 silicone muffin cups, but then says serves eight and provides nutrient breakdown for eight servings.
So does this make eight or does it make 12?
I'll fix the directions when I get to a computer. It should say 8. That's how many I got out of the recipe. Sorry!
