Keep reading to learn how to make keto cheesecake fat bombs with only 4 simple ingredients.
Is Cream Cheese Keto?
Wait – is cream cheese keto friendly? That’s a fair question since much of the healthy fats in this easy fat bombs recipe come from cream cheese.
The good news is most cream cheese you find at the grocery store is keto approved. One way to tell if your favorite brand is keto-friendly is to figure out how many carbs is in the cream cheese.
On average, a one ounce serving contains 84 calories, 8 grams of fat, and 1 gram of carbs. Always check the nutrition label for added sugars since some brands can vary on the carb count.
If you really want to make the best cheesecake fat bombs, look for an organic cream cheese that doesn’t contain harmful ingredients, like carageenan. Also look for a full fat cream cheese since higher fat foods work better on keto.
How to Make Cheesecake Bites
This fat bomb recipe is easy with a few basic steps upfront. Start by setting the butter and cream cheese on the counter to allow them to come up to room temperature before making creamy cheesecake bites.
These healthy fats blend together best after they have a chance to soften.
Speaking of soft, the coconut oil doesn’t mix well if you live in a climate where it’s rock solid. You may need to melt it in a small saucepan if it’s too hard to mix with the other fats.
While you wait for the fats to soften, line a mini cupcake pan with mini cupcake liners. If you don’t have a mini muffin pan, you can also line a baking sheet with parchment paper to form the cheesecake balls. A silicone mold works for this recipe too.
Combine the Fats
Once the cream cheese is soft, beat it in a large mixing bowl with an electric mixer. Beat until the cream cheese is light and fluffy for the best texture for your low carb cheesecake bites. To avoid a big mess, start with a low speed and increase slowly.
Next, add the softened butter, coconut oil, and vanilla extract. Blend the cream cheese mixture with a hand mixer until well combined.
Taste the Cheesecake Filling
Once blended, taste the filling for the no bake cheesecake bites to help you decide if this combo is sweet enough for you.
If you prefer a sweeter treat, you can add your favorite keto sweetener, like stevia drops or monk fruit sweetener. A low-carb sweetener can add a lot of sweetness with very little extra grams of carbs.
Even though I gave up added sweeteners a few years ago, that may not be where you’re at in your low carb diet journey. If your sweet tooth is still strong, the combo of healthy fats may need a touch of sweetness.
Just keep in mind, the more added sweeteners you use, the more sweet treats you’ll crave. Learn to cut back on sweeteners as you go for less cravings and better results on a ketogenic diet.
Mold into Cheesecake Balls
The next step is to spoon the cheesecake mixture into lined muffin tins.
Drop the batter into the tins in 1 tablespoon increments until all of the batter is distributed evenly.
You may need a rubber spatula to scrape every drop of the bite size cheesecake goodness from the bowl. Or maybe use your fingers to clean up any leftovers – not that I’ve ever licked a bowl clean like that 😂
Finally, place the tray in the freezer until firm. This usually takes 20-30 minutes. Once firm, remove the fat bombs from the tray and store in an airtight container. I store mine in a Ziploc bag in the fridge.
If you don’t plan to devour the batch within a week, store the leftovers in an air-tight container in the freezer.
