I made these mini cheesecakes for my family in Nashville. I had been wanting to make a low carb cheesecake for a while but the ones I saw always seemed very involved and needed a special pan. I thought my readers would like a more simplified version that doesn’t have a lot of carbs or sugar.
I also liked that these are portable and individually portioned. I know Paleo people don’t eat dairy but many people do include high quality sources on occasion so this is good option if you use organic cream cheese. Many people who read my blog follow a ketogenic lifestyle which is a little more lenient on the dairy. Here is a great guide on getting started on a real food ketogenic plan.
Primal Low Carb Cheesecake
Prep time: 20 minutes, 1 hour inactive
Cook Time: 20 Minutes
Serves: 12 mini-cheesecakes
2 eggs (pastured get them here)
2 8 oz packages cream cheese, room temperature (try to use organic)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg (optional)
1 cup blanched almond flour
1/4 cup golden ground flax
1/4 cup melted butter
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
6 oz raspberries, for topping (optional)
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Mix the eggs, cream cheese, vanilla, nutmeg in a bowl with a whisk until combined. Mix the almond flour, flax, butter and sea salt in another bowl until well combined. Line a muffin pan with liners. Place 1/4 inch of the nut mixture into the bottom of each muffin pan, using fingers to spread it evenly. Bake the crust for 5 minutes and remove from the oven. Spoon the cheese mixture into each muffin cup until it is about 3/4 full. Bake the cheesecakes for 20 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool then transfer to the refrigerator for one hour to cool. Mash the raspberries with a fork until it becomes a sauce. Place the cheesecakes on a plate, top with a sauce and enjoy.
