How to Make Keto Chocolate Chip Cookie Cheesecake Bars

Tips for the Perfect Keto Cheesecake Bars
These Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Bars are super easy to make, but here are a few tips that I have found helpful and hope you will too:
How to Tell When Cheesecake Bars are Done
The easiest way to to tell if your cheesecake bars are ready to come out of the oven is to start checking for signs of doneness about 5 minutes before the baking time is up. Once they're done, the edges will begin to brown slightly and they will be mostly firm with a slight jiggle in the center.
Make Sure Keto Cheesecake Bars are Cool Before Cutting
The key to cheesecake bars setting up well is to let them cool completely then chill in the fridge a couple hours. This allows the cream cheese and eggs to firm up and become sliceable. This takes a little but of patience but trust me, it's worth the wait.
Can Cheesecake Bars be Frozen?
They sure can, making them a perfect meal prep dessert idea. They be frozen for up to 3 months. To freeze, place the cooled Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cheesecake Bars on a plate and freeze, uncovered, just until firm. Then take them out and wrap with plastic wrap and stick them back in the freezer.
Can I Make Keto Cheesecake Bars Ahead of Time?
This recipe for Chocolate Chip Cookie Cheesecake bars is actually even BETTER the next day. If you need a make ahead dessert, you will definitely love these!
How to Cut Cheesecake Bars Cleanly
To get really clean edges when cutting your Keto cheesecake bars, dip your knife in hot water for a few seconds, wipe it off and cut your bars. Each bar will slice cleanly and will make a beautiful presentation.
What Sweetener is Best in Keto Cheesecake Bars?
Swerve has a 1:1 conversion ratio with sugar making it an easy substitution. But you can use Monk Fruit or Allulose if you prefer. Just be sure and follow the conversion chart for which ever type sweetener you use.
