Low Carb Oreo Cheesecake Bites
Need I say more? Back in the day I could polish off a full sleeve of Oreos in a blink. I never really liked the center cream…too waxy. But the chocolate cookie with cream is really delightful. So Low Carb Oreo Cheesecake Bites are like…duh!
Oreo Cheesecake Bites came to me as I was trying to marry a chocolate cookie and my classic cheesecake. I hope you like them as much as we do.
Just one dessert…occassionally
These little guys are just 3g net carbs per cheesecake and are the perfect size. I serve mine with a dollop of fresh whipped cream. They save really well in the freezer too.
Here’s how I make them…
I preheat the oven to 350*….kind of a staple routine. Then, in a small clean bowl I mix up the chocolate cookie crust part. Mixing the cocoa powder, sweetener, almond flour and butter together using the back of my fork makes this crust slightly crumbly. You can add a pinch of salt to balance out the sweetness, but I did not include that in the recipe.
I take about 1/3 cup of this chocolate cookie mixture and set it aside. Then I evenly distribute the rest of the chocolate cookie crust into each of the paper muffin cups to make the Oreo Cheesecake Bites. I bake these little cookie crusts for about 8 minutes. While they are cooking I start on the Oreo Cheesecake filling.
In a large clean bowl using a hand mixer I whip the cream cheese and sour cream together until creamy and smooth. Then I beat in the sweetener and vanilla. After I get the sweetener and the creamy mixture blended I whip in one egg at a time until fully combined.
This is the part that you need to just carefully combine the creamy cheese mixture with the chocolate cookie mixture you had set aside. Using just a simple rubber spoon fold the cookie crumble into the cream cheese mixture. Only one or two folds. You want the chocolate cookie to get fully incorporated, but you also want some of the chocolate to still show on top.
This is the last part before you bake your Oreo Cheesecake Bites. I spoon equal amounts of the sweetened cream cheese mixture over each of the chocolate cookie crust in each muffin cup.
Other Cheesecake Desserts
- Blend together with the back of a fork new. Set aside 1/3 cup of the chocolate crumbly mixture for the filling later.
- Bake at 350° for 8 minutes. Pull out of oven and set aside to cool. (I pop the whole tin into the fridge to speed up the cooling.) Turn oven down to 325*
- In a large clean bowl mix the cream cheese with a handmixer until the cream cheese until creamy and smooth. Add in the sour cream and your sweetener of choice and continue to mix with the handmixer.
- Gently crumble the remaining 1/3 cup chocolate cookie mixture onto the top of the cream cheese mixture. Using a rubber spatula gently fold the chocolate cookie mixture into the cream cheese mixture. Maybe three or four folds as you want to be very gentle in this folding process.
- Equally distribute the Oreo cheesecake mixture into each of the 12 muffin cups. Bake at 325° for 20 minutes. Turn oven off and leave muffin/cheesecake pan in the oven with the door slightly open for another 20 minutes. This helps prevent cracking.
- Serve with whipped cream if desired. These mini Oreo cheesecake bites can be frozen for up to one month.
