Keto Cheesecake Squares

Serves: 20

Ingredients:

  • 150g butter or coconut oil melted (use a pinch of salt if using coconut oil)
  • 6 eggs
  • 120g cream cheese cut into cubes, softened
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2-4 tbsp granulated sweetener of choice (I used Splenda)
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder

Instructions:

  • Place all the ingredients in a large mixing bowl
  • Mix together using a stick blender until smooth
  • Pour into a lined square 8 inch pan
  • Bake at 160C/320F for 20-30 minutes until cooked in the centre
  • Allow to cook then cut into approx. 20 squares

Side Notes:

  • Remember to add sweetness to your taste.  The longer we eliminate sugars, the less sweet we require
  • Add plenty of vanilla to guarantee this doesn’t taste “eggy”
  • You could make this as a fruit flavoured cheesecake by throwing in frozen blueberries, strawberries etc.. I chose not to to keep it more Keto friendly

Side Notes :  You can be creative with this recipe by using different flavoured stevia drops.  I personally loved these and I found serving them in smaller portions worked best for me.  This recipe made about 8 servings, using 2 tablespoons to spoon the mixture into my cute little cupcake tins!
