Chocolate Keto Cheesecake Recipe
Chocolate Keto Cheesecake Ingredients
- 8 tbsp butter
- 2 oz unsweetened baking chocolate, chopped
- 1/2 cup almond flour
- 1/4 cup cocoa powder
- pinch salt
- 2 large eggs
- 3/4 cup Swerve Sweetener
- 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 lb cream cheese softened
- 2 large eggs
- 1/2 cup Swerve Sweetener
- 1/4 cup heavy cream
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
Chocolate Keto Cheesecake Directions
Melt butter and chocolate together over low heat in a small saucepan, whisking until smooth.
In a small bowl, whisk together almond flour, cocoa powder and salt. In a large bowl, beat eggs, Swerve and vanilla until smooth. Beat in almond flour mixture, then butter/chocolate mixture until smooth.
Spread evenly over bottom of pan. Bake 12 to 18 minutes until set around edges but still soft in the center. Let cool 15 to 20 minutes.
Reduce oven temperature to 300F.
In a large bowl, beat cream cheese until very smooth. Beat in eggs, Swerve, cream and vanilla until well combined. If it’s not completely smooth, it will come out chunky and have a gross texture.
Pour filling over crust and place cheesecake on a large cookie sheet. Bake until edges are set and center just barely jiggles, 35 to 45 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool.
Run a knife around edges to loosen and then remove sides of pan. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate at least 3 hours.
Serve with Choc Zero chocolate syrup on top, this is a keto friendly syrup.
