How to Make Easy Keto Cheesecake Bites
If you’re new to fat bombs, this is a great recipe to start with. You can put this no bake recipe together in just a few easy steps. Plus this low carb snack makes it easier to stick to keto. Who wouldn’t want amazing results while eating delicious keto-friendly desserts as snacks?
The first thing you’ll need to do is pull out the butter and cream cheese. Allow them to soften on the counter prior to mixing this fat bombs recipe together.
Depending on where you live, give them at least an hour to come to room temperature. <—- Says the girl who’s writing this blog during a triple digit Arizona summer. You may need a little more time if you live somewhere cold. Also, I’m sorry you have to live somewhere cold.
While you wait, choose your tool to allow these crustless keto cheesecake bites to firm up in the fridge.
Since the main ingredients in this recipe are thicker than other fat bombs, you have a few great options. One way is to line a mini muffin pan with mini muffin tins. The tins will help you avoid the cheesecake filling from sticking to the pan. A silicone mold is another great choice for cream cheese balls since they should pop right out. Finally, you could line a baking sheet with parchment paper and use your hands to form balls.
Combine the Healthy Fats
When the butter and cream cheese are ready, add them into a large mixing bowl with the almond butter. Use a hand mixer on medium speed to combine the ingredients together. The add the cream cheese mixture in one tablespoon increments into your tray of choice.
You can either roll these mini keto cheesecakes into balls with your hands, or just plop them down with a spoon. Keep in mind, the cheesecake mixture will be sticky – so this may help with your decision. If you go with the plop down method, the final product won’t look as pretty, but these are so good that you won’t care!
Next, melt the dark chocolate in a small saucepan over medium heat. Keep an eye on it so it doesn’t burn. Then drizzle the melted chocolate evenly over the almond butter cheesecake balls. Place the mini cheesecake bites in the freezer until firm. This will take 20 – 30 minutes.
A Few Ingredient Notes
The basic steps for this recipe are simple. Here are a few notes for best results when it comes to making the most out of fat bombs on a keto diet:
- Use grass-fed butter whenever possible. It has more nutrients than conventional butter and is worth the extra cost.
- Always look for full-fat cream cheese for keto cheesecake recipes
- You can replace almond butter with peanut butter in this recipe for a different flavor
- I prefer melting dark chocolate over sugar-free chocolate chips.
I want to expand a little on that last note.
Too many keto diet recipes are filled with sweeteners and sugar alcohols. Adding too many sweeteners to popular desserts can cause cravings, or even a weight loss stall, for many keto dieters.
While I don’t believe you can never have sweet foods again, I am a big believer in weaning off too many overly sweetened foods. This has made a huge difference for our Keto Decoded members. Many use this tip to lose up to 80 pounds in under a year after no other diet has worked.
If this recipe isn’t sweet enough for you, use this free sweetener guide to learn the best sugar-free sweetener options for a keto diet. It’s a good idea to start with a little bit and then wean off sweeteners overtime.
This will help your palate adjust to foods that are naturally sweetened, like almond butter. This one trick can make or break your long term success on a low-carb diet.
