In fact, they are so easy to make that you might even be tempted to make more than one.

Base Of Keto Cheesecake

The base for any easy keto cheesecake recipe is a tasty, smooth yogurt and cream cheese. You can choose to make a traditional cream cheese crust or a more advanced version using almond flour, rolled oats, and pepitas (bitters). Be careful using pepitas because you will want to ensure that they are thoroughly mixed with the yogurt. Then, you will want to combine the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients just until the ingredients are completely combined. Next, you will spoon the filling into the crust and bake the cakes in the oven at 350F for about 25 minutes.

Because these dessert recipes are so rich in both cream cheese and yogurt, it is important to bake them in a very hot oven. The reason that baking time increases in this case is that the heavier cream cheese and yogurt are heated to room temperature, which results in even heating for the baked cake. You do not need to preheat the oven because once the cakes are done baking, you simply spoon them into the center of a fluted cake pan and let them cool off. Once cool enough, they are ready to serve.

Different Methods To Make Cheesecake

However, there are a couple different methods that you can employ in order to reduce the amount of fat and cream cheese in your keto cheesecake recipe. The first is to replace the water bath with a low carb yogurt bath. This can be accomplished by using about 4 cups of unsweetened plain yogurt. Add about one tablespoon of vanilla extract and mix in. Then, add your dry ingredients and turn the mix on low.

Add Sour Cream

If you find that your cheesecake mixture needs more cream, you can add sour cream after it finishes baking. Do not forget to place in your dry ingredients into your mixing bowl before you pour in your yogurt mixture. It should come out about halfway full. If you bake your cheesecake at the right temperature and in the right way, you will have a delicious and tasty treat that has very little fat and a very high level of protein and good carbohydrates. Not bad considering what we usually pair it with!

Final Words

If there are still air bubbles in your half-baked cheesecakes, you will want to immediately place them back into your oven and re-heat them up. Air bubbles are caused by the boiling water bath that you used to prepare your low carb or to cheesecakes in. If there are no air bubbles, then that means your half-baked cheesecakes were cooked in the proper water bath that is provided in your oven.
