Just a few simple ingredients to make these keto mini cheesecake cupcakes that you probably have in your kitchen.
- Cream cheese: softened for easy mixing, giving this cheesecake a mild sweet taste and pleasant tang.
- Almond Flour: ground blanched almonds were used for this recipe which gives it a slightly nutty flavour plus it's low carb and gluten free.
- Vanilla Extract: enhancing all the flavours in this creamy low carb cheesecake
- Erythritol: this is my favourite sweetener as I find it is the closest sweetener to sugar and as a type 2 diabetic it does not seem to spike my blood sugars.
- Butter: we used melted butter to easily mix with the almond flour to make the crust.
Steps by step instructions
How to make Keto Cheesecake Cupcakes
STEP 1: Preheat oven to 350°F. Let's make the crust by using a medium size bowl, mix together the almond flour and melted butter. Once mixed, line up 12 cupcake liners on a baking sheet. Spoon out about 1 teaspoon of the crust into the silicone cupcake liners or paper cupcake liners.
Using your fingers flatten the crust out evenly in the bottom of the cupcakes.
Since these are individual cheesecakes there is no need to pre-bake the crust, it will bake together with the filling.
STEP 2: Using a stand mixer or hand mixer, beat the cream cheese with the sweetener on medium speed until well combined and creamy. Next add the eggs and vanilla extract and beat for another 2-3 minutes on medium high speed. Scrape down the sides of the bowl as needed.
STEP 3: Using an ice cream scoop, divide the cream cheese filling into the cupcake liners. About one scoop is enough, if you have any extra filling spoon it out evenly amongst the 12 cupcakes.
- STEP 4: Bake the keto cheesecake cupcakes in the oven at 350°F for 16-18 minutes, or until set. Remove from oven and allow to cool completely and then store in the refrigerator overnight.
STEP 5: to make the blueberry topping place 1 cup of frozen blueberries in a saucepan and simmer it for 5 minutes or until reduced to your preference. Place in a small bowl and allow to cool completely. Spoon some of the blueberry over the cheesecakes as you consume them.
Top Tip: cheesecake is better the next day after baking. Therefore, wait until the next day before consuming these delicious keto cheesecake cupcakes.
Tip: if your cream cheese is not softened, use a paddle attachment to mix the cream cheese and then switch to the whisk attachment.
- Serving: serve with your favourite berries or a dollop of whipped cream.
- Storage: store on a dish covered with plastic wrap in the fridge for up to 1 week.
