Keto Cheesecake Recipe


Crust – 2 cups almond flour – 6 tbsp butter melted – 3 tbsp low carb sweetener granular or powdered – 1 tsp vanilla extract – 1/2 tsp cinnamon Cheesecake Filling – 40 oz cream cheese (5-8oz blocks) must be room temperature – 1 cup low carb sweetener POWDERED – 5 large eggs must be room temperature – 1 tsp vanilla extract – 1/2 cup sour cream


Preheat oven to 350*. Prepare 9” springform pan with oil spray or line the bottom of the pan with a round piece of parchment paper. Set aside. – In a medium clean bowl mix together the almond flour, melted butter, low carb sweetener, cinnamon, and vanilla extract. The crust mixture will be slightly crumbly. Press the dough into the bottom and slightly up the sides of the prepared pan. I like to go about ½”-1” up the side of the pan. Chill for at least 10 minutes.


Using a hand mixer (or stand mixer on medium speed whip together the room temperature cream cheese and powdered sweetener together at medium speed until fluffy. Mix in the room temperature eggs one at a time until fully incorporated. The last step is to add in the sour cream and vanilla extract.


Pour the cheesecake filling over your chilled crust and smooth the top with a spatula. Bake cheesecake in 350* oven for about 45-55 minutes. Check your cheesecake at about 40 minutes to see if the center is almost set, but still jiggly. Bake the cheesecake up to 10 more minutes if you feel the center is still a bit wet.


When you notice the cheesecake is set on the outer edge and still has a little movement in the center turn off the oven. Leave the cheesecake in the oven with the oven turned off and the door slightly ajar for another 30-60 minutes.


Remove the cheesecake from the oven and set on the counter to cool completely. Run a knife around the edge while the cheesecake is still warm. DO NOT yet remove the outer ring. Cool in the cheesecake to room temperature, then refrigerate for at least 4 hours (preferably overnight), until completely set. Serve with fresh whipped cream, Keto Salted Caramel Sauce or a fresh berries if desired.
