Cheesecake is a serious weakness of mine. Send me into a Cheesecake Factory and my foodie tastebuds go into sensory overload!
Thank heavens the major components of cheesecake are keto! Cream cheese, butter, eggs. Bam!
And while I LOVE me some cheesecake, I don’t always love how long it takes to bake. Yes, they’re easy but I like fast because girl’s gotta eat!
I came up with these mini cheesecakes as a way to satisfy the craving, faster. I was also really jonesing for some graham cracker crust, so there’s that.
These mini cheesecakes are perfect for meal prepping too! Put one in everybody’s lunch box for a sweet treat in their day!
The crust is as close to a graham cracker as I think you can get! Sukrin Gold has become a staple in my pantry! It is a brown sugar substitute made from erythritol that tastes EXACTLY like brown sugar.
It’s magic, I tell ya! Best of all, it’s zero carb = guilt free!
