Lately, my husband and I have been following the Keto diet. If you’re not familiar with the Keto diet, it is basically a low carb, high fat diet. We eat this Keto Pizza at least once a week!

 

Low Carb Cheesecake Bites

 

Part of the reason I think the Keto diet has worked pretty well for us, is that my all-time favorite thing to eat is cheesecake. And cheesecake fits perfectly with Keto!

These Low Carb Cheesecake Bites are the perfect make ahead snack! I usually make a batch at the beginning of the week and I am prepared with a hunger satisfying snack whenever I need it.

Perfect Cheesecake Tips

 

Making cheesecake happens to be one of my specialties so I have a couple of tricks up my sleeve when making these cheesecake bites.

 

Tip #1 Room Temperature Cream Cheese

 

One of my tips is to make sure your cream cheese and butter are room temperature. Your batter will be lumpy if you don’t.

 

Tip #2 Whip Ingredients

 

Whip your ingredients together! Not only does this help combine your ingredients, it also adds a little air into the batter, which helps with the texture of the cheesecake.

Tip #3 Use a Water-Bath

 

A water bath is when you place your cheesecake pan in a larger pan of water in the oven to bake. This helps ensure even baking of the cheesecake.

 

Although I use a water bath when I bake a cheesecake, I don’t do it when baking these cheesecake bites.

 

Tip #4 Allow Cheesecake to Cook Gradually

 

Normally, when baking an entire cheesecake, I follow this tip of allowing the cheesecake to cool gradually to keep the center of the cheesecake from sinking.
