How to Make Low Carb Blackberry Cheesecake Bars
To Make the Gluten Free Cheesecake Bar Crust
Preheat oven to 350F.
Add the almond flour, butter, egg, Swerve confectioners and vanilla extract to the bowl of a food processor and mix until a dough is formed.
Place the crust to the side while you prepare the cheesecake filling.
How to Make the Low Carb Cream Cheese Filling
Add the cream cheese to the bowl of a food processor (or stand mixer) and mix.
Mix in the eggs one at a time, then add the Swerve slowly.
Add in the vanilla, sour cream and lemon zest and mix again.
Add in the blackberries and continue mixing until well combined.
Pour the mixture over the crust and smooth out evenly with a spatula.
Bake the cheesecake bars for 30-40 minutes, or until the center has just set. There will still be a slight jiggle to the center.
Chill in the fridge for at least 1-2 hours or until set before cutting.
Serve with whip cream and fresh blackberries.
Is a Blackberry Carb Friendly?
Good news, there are only a little over 3 net carbs in a ½ cup serving of blackberries! Carbs in blackberries are all from natural sugar but the fiber helps off set to the net carbs!
Are Blackberries Keto?
Absolutely! Blackberries are one of the best choices of fruit on Keto due to the amount of fiber. So if you’re looking for a great snack between meals, fresh blackberries are an excellent choice.

Tips for Making Perfect Keto Cheesecake Bars
- Always use full fat cream cheese. It’s all about quality ingredients when you’re making a Keto cheesecake recipe. Low fat cream cheese has fillers that can cause a cheesecake to very easily flop. The more fat, the creamier the cheesecake will be.
- To prevent lumpy cheesecake, set the cream cheese out on the counter and allow it to come completely to room temperature before mixing.
- Don’t skip the sour cream. Not only does the tanginess of sour cream balance out the flavor of cream cheese, it helps add a smoother texture.
- Refrain from over mixing the batter. When you overmix the batter, air pockets will form, which will not only make your Keto cheesecake bars look unattractive when bubbles rise to the top during baking, the added air can cause them the crack.
- Another way to prevent cracking is don’t over bake them. These low carb cheesecake bars will still have a slight jiggle to them when they are done, but the edges will be set.
- In order to get clean slices, the most important thing is to allow the blackberry cheesecake bars to cool completely. Cut them with a sharp knife and clean the knife in between cuts.
