How to Make Keto Blueberry Cheesecake Bars
How to Make Gluten Free Cheesecake Crust
Preheat oven to 350F. Add the almond flour, butter, egg, Swerve confectioners and vanilla extract to the bowl of a food processor.
Mix until a dough is formed.
Place the dough in a 8" x 8" glass or ceramic baking dish lined with parchment paper and press out in an even layer. The dough will be a little sticky, so if you wet your hands, it will make it easier to spread.
How to Make Keto Cheesecake Filling
Add the cream cheese to a mixing bowl and whip.
Add the eggs and mix, one at a time.
Add in the vanilla, Swerve and sour cream, then mix until well combined.
Pour the batter over the crust and smooth out the top using a spatula.
Take the blueberry sauce and drop dollops evenly over the top.
Taking a butter knife and keeping it upright, swirl the sauce through the cheesecake batter until it's pretty well combined, giving you streaks of color throughout. Just look at that beautiful color!
Bake for 40-45 minutes, or until the center has just set. There will still be a slight jiggle to it.
Chill in the fridge for at least 1-2 hours or until set before cutting and serving with a dollop of sugar-free whip cream on top.
Or serve with more Blueberry Sauce on top!
Tips for Making Keto Blueberry 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 blueberry cheesecake bars to cool completely. Cut them with a sharp knife and clean the knife in between cuts.
Are There Carbs in Cream Cheese?
Cream cheese, just like nearly all cheese, has a very low carb count with less than 1 gram per 1 ounce serving.
