Keto Cheesecake Muffins

Hello there! Long long time no see! I've been around, just not on my blog, but you can catch me almost daily on IG  if you're hungry or want to see what I'm up to! 

So you may or  may not know, I have been attempting the low carb/keto diet since last summer, with great results (it does wonders for diabetics!) and though most of it is pretty much meat, veggies and healthy fats, we can have desserts too! I love desserts! Most of my blog is probably full of sweets. Well, I found a great low carb, keto friendly, gluten free cheesecake recipe I just had to share with you!

This recipe can be made with really any flavor you like, I've made chocolate chip and berry ones so far. The berry ones reminded me so much of this old recipe I used to make! The crust in these are simply chopped nuts. The filling bakes up just like a real cheesecake, nice and creamy. No one will ever know they're better for you! They've become my favorite!

Keto Cheesecake Muffins 
adapted from Kasey Trenum

16 oz softened cream cheese
1/2 cup granulated Erythritol sweetener
2 eggs
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup sugar free Chocolate Chips or bar, chopped (or blueberries and raspberries)
3/4 cup chopped pecans

Preheat oven to 350' degrees.
Line 12 muffin tins with parchment muffin liners (trust me, you'll love these!).
Using a mixer to beat cream cheese on medium speed until smooth and creamy. Add eggs, Erythritol and vanilla then beat again on medium speed until thoroughly combined. Fold in chocolate (or berries) by hand.  Add 1 tablespoon (I just use a good pinch amount) of chopped pecans to the bottom of each muffin tin. Fill muffin tins with cheesecake batter approx 2/3 full, I use an ice cream scooper for a perfect amount). Bake for 18-20 minutes. Best served cold.


Trust me on these parchment liners!! 

Inside is nice and creamy smooth!
