15 Amazing Keto Desserts Made With Cream Cheese
For understandable reasons, my keto desserts recipes that are made with cream cheese are my most popular post. After all, it is hard to beat a delicious keto dessert made with some soft and creamy cream cheese. It’s no secret that many of the greatest desserts are made with cream cheese, like cheesecake of course. But what many people might not know is that adding cream cheese to many low-carb desserts like cookies and cakes is one of my best kept secret weapons.
The keto friendly flours such as almond and coconut flour tend to much denser than wheat flour and many other high carb-flours are. In addition, they do not rise like wheat flour and tend to dry out and burn at a much faster pace.
That said, it can become difficult to make soft and chewy keto desserts or pastries using these flours. Thankfully, however, adding a bit of cream cheese was a game changer to the taste and texture to many of my keto dessert recipes. The cream cheese helps keep them moist and allows them to be soft and chewy. These are just some of my favorite keto desserts made with cream cheese!
My #1 Keto Dessert Made With Cream Cheese Is Keto Chocolate Cheesecake!
This keto chocolate cheesecake is not only my favorite keto dessert made with cream cheese but probably my favorite keto dessert period. After all, it’s a combination of my two favorite sweets. That is chocolate and cheesecake. In fact, this recipe is loaded with three layers of chocolaty goodness.
The first layer is a buttery chocolate mock graham cracker crust with an amazing cookie crunch. On top of that is a smooth and creamy chocolate cream cheese filling that taste amazing. Last but not least it is topped with a thick layer of chocolate ganache. That said, its no wonder this low-carb cream cheese dessert is on the top of my list.

#2 Keto Peanut Butter Pie With Cream Cheese Filling
This keto peanut butter pie with cream cheese filling is a close second.

#4 Chewy Keto Chocolate Chip Cookies
It’s hard to make a chewy keto cookie using only keto friendly ingredients. This is simply because keto friendly flours are much denser and do not rise as wheat flours do.

These low-carb cookies are loaded with keto friendly fats and contain very few net carbs. In addition, to the cream cheese, these cookies are made with a combination of almond and pecan flour.

However, its the cream cheese frosting that makes this keto mug cake, in my opinion, the best keto friendly mug cake out there. Most keto mug-cake recipes I have tried come out pretty dry and bland.
