Keto Marbled Cheesecake

I am a sucker for desserts, so I have been working on making a Keto Marbled cheesecake. The first attempt wasn’t that great, but this second one was really good. I got the surprised look and nod of approval from Grant so that has to be good. :)

For the crust, I ground up hazelnuts and almonds because I had them on hand, and prefer a more chunky crust, but you can always use almond meal if you prefer that.

All ground up, and I just put the extra in a tupperware container until I use it up.

Soften butter for the crust.

DSC_6539Add the ground up almonds or almond meal.

Mix up and set aside.

In a separate bowl, make the Brownie “mix” by adding an egg and butter.

Add cocoa.


DSC_6544

Milk and a little bit of almond meal.

DSC_6545

Swerve  sweetener and a little bit of peanut butter.

I also added  a dash of Waldens Farm Syrup, then mix well and set aside.

I like to use these Silicone Baking Cups cause they are much easier to clean than a muffin tin and take up less space.

In another bowl, we are making the cheesecake filling starting with 2 eggs.

DSC_6549

Two softened bricks of cream cheese.

DSC_6551

Splenda (in cheesecake it doesn’t have any after taste to me.)

DSC_6553

Add a dash of vanilla and mix up.

DSC_6554

Place a dollop of crust in each of the 12 muffin tins.

DSC_6555

Pat down as best as you can.

Next add a spoonful of cheesecake filling.

Then a spoon full of brownie mix, and give a small twirl.

DSC_6558

Top each with the remaining cheesecake mixture.

DSC_6559

Swirl and level out.

DSC_6561

I ended up having a lot of the brownie mixture left over, but below I have halved the recipe since that is closer to what is actually needed.

DSC_6563

Bake.

DSC_6829

Let them cool cause warm cheesecake is gross.

DSC_6832Enjoy!

The carb count is around 4 net carbs depending on what sweeteners you add to the recipe. Also this cheesecake recipe is my favorite so if you don’t want to marble it just make the crust and cheesecake filling. When making it plain, I like to add around 1 tablespoon of lemon juice for extra flavor.

    How many calories/carbs for the sweetener? Splenda has both.

      A lot of people don’t “count” the carbs for the sweeteners, but I have added them into the recipe for you. It is showing if using the Splenda in the cheesecake part and truvia in the brownie, to be a total of 7 carbs per piece and 242 calories. Now each different sweetener has different carb/calorie counts depending on which you use. Here is a visual link for you http://imgur.com/GLj56Aq I hope this helps.

    I’m making this recipe today for my sister’s birthday! I hecked up a little. I put a whole egg in the brownie mix and it was way too liquid-y. That’s my bad. I also used Truvia, because I didn’t have splenda, and I don’t know how I feel about it. I think the Truvia ended up being way, way too sweet in the brownie mix, and then I only used about 1/4 cup in the cheesecake mix to compensate, and it’s not quite sweet enough? Anyway, thank you so much for this recipe! I’ll know what pitfalls to avoid next time… Any even with my unintended alterations, it’s still totally delicious!
