Keto Chocolate Cheesecake Recipe (Low Carb) - The Best Keto Recipes (1)

I know we are all dealing with the stress and anxiety of our current situation in different ways. I have spent a lot of time getting my garden ready for summer and the fresh air and sunshine has been therapeutic. However, I am also finding joy in baking.

It has actually been really nice to be able to create a recipe that I usually might pass over because it is time consuming. I am finding the extra time in the kitchen comforting instead of just one more thing to add to my to do list.

So I wanted to share a really delicious keto dessert that might bring you a little comfort too. These low-carb cheesecake bites are too good to pass up!

How to Make Keto Chocolate Cheesecake

This recipe has three distinct layers. The bottom layer is a shortbread cookie crust made with almond flour. This is based off of the crust I use in my Keto Fruit Pizza.

The second layer is a deep dark chocolate cheesecake that is perfectly creamy. The third layer is a rich layer of melted dark chocolate and sea salt flakes.

Here’s how the dark chocolate cheesecake is made:

  1. To make the chocolate crust: combine the melted butter, almond flour, keto-friendly sweetener and cocoa powder.
  2. Press the dough into the bottom of a silicone muffin pan.
  3. Pre-bake the crust for 7 minutes and allow the crust to cool COMPLTELY.
  4. Make the filling:In a stand mixer or hand mixer, combine the cream cheese, eggs, sweetener, cocoa powder and vanilla until things are just barely incorporated.
  5. Add the melted bakers chocolate and the heavy cream. Mix until completely smooth, mixture will be light and airy.
  6. Spoon onto the cooled crust.
  7. Bake 15-18 minutes until the cheescake has set. Remove from oven and allow the cheesecakes to cool completely.
  8. Make the topping:Melt the sugar-free chocolate chips and coconut oil in a small bowl.
  9. Dip the keto chocolate cheesecake bites into the melted chocolate and top with sea salt.

Can You Eat Cheesecake on a Keto Diet?

Yes, as long as you use appropriate sweeteners. Cheesecake is a common keto dessert because cream cheese is naturally low in carbs and high in fat.

How Many Carbs Are in This Recipe?

Can I Make a Regular Sized Cheesecake?

I prefer making cheesecake bites because they’re easier to meal prep and freeze for later. However, you should be fine to assemble the keto chocolate cheesecake in a larger pan and bake it that way.

I can’t say for sure which pan size you’d need to use though. Adjust the bake time as needed to account for the larger pan size!

Tips for Making Keto-Friendly Cheesecake

  • For this recipe, I suggest using confectioners Swerve or Monkfruit to make an excellent keto cheesecake with no strange artificial sweetener taste.
  • I always use a silicone muffin pan to make the low-carb cheesecake bites. Silicone pans are flexible and make removing each individual cheesecake bite so much easier.
  • These keto-friendly cheesecake bites can be frozen for up to three months. They’re great for meal prepping!
