Low Carb Mini Cheesecakes

These mini cheesecakes are a perfect trim healthy mama dessert to finish off a meal.

If you are looking for an easy low carb or thm s dessert, make these today. These are special ingredient free and simple to make. Sometimes cheesecakes can be fussy and require extra effort. Not these mini cheesecakes! I whipped these up in minutes and had them in the oven in no time. For a fall or Thanksgiving dessert, top with sugar free cranberry sauce. You can leave them plain if you prefer but I love a sweet topping on top of my cheesecake. You can make a cherry, blueberry, raspberry, toppings. Drizzle with a homemade chocolate and caramel sauce. Maybe even mix in a few sugar free chocolate chips into the batter. While a whole cheesecake can be impressive, these are so easy to make!

These low carb mini cheesecakes do have an optional crust.

You can skip it if you want but it barely takes and time at all to make. While you have the crusts pre-baking, mix up the filling. If you aren’t topping with the cranberry sauce, match your topping or filling. I used a little orange extract to match the slight orange flavor in the cranberry sauce. Almond extract would be amazing with a cherry topping. Depending on your extract collection, you probably have a ton of possibilities.

When you take them out of the oven, they will be puffed up but they will shrink down as they cool. They make a nice little cavity for a filling. You don’t have to wait for a special occasion to have cheesecake. You can make these today and have them with dinner. These mini low carb cheesecakes will fill that gap when missing the sugar filled ones we used to eat.
