Keto Cheesecake Recipe [Simple And Easy To Make]

Keto Cheesecake Recipe [Simple And Easy To Make]

I still remember my first bite of cheesecake. The thought of the rich creamy custard and buttery gram cracker crust still makes my mouth water. Embarrassingly though, my first bite did come from a free sample tray from the Walmart bakery. So maybe it wasn’t world class, but it was good enough to earn the spot as my #1 favorite dessert from that day forward. And for this reason, I knew I couldn’t go keto without an amazing and simple keto cheesecake recipe.

The first thing I had to figure out was how to make a worthy crust. It is hard to compete with sugar and gram crackers, after all. Thankfully, with the help of pecan cookie pieces and loads of butter, I finally found the answer. Pecans and almond flour combine to create the ideal texture. Then with the addition of Swerve, cinnamon, and butter, you get the perfect taste to go along with it.

Next, all I really needed to do was make a great custard filling. This step was much easier, as most of the ingredients in this kind of filling are already keto-friendly. So all I really needed to do was substitute the sweetener with a low-carb alternative from one of my already tried and true recipes.

Lastly, I took that same recipe and followed the same baking instructions and it came out just as I had hoped–rich, creamy, perfectly sweet, and with a buttery crust and a nice cookie crunch. The best part of it all is that this keto cheesecake recipe is super simple and easy to make. I find that the best-tasting keto desserts are the ones made with cream cheese.
