The Best Keto Cheesecake Ever
. Man, this post has been a LONGGGG time coming.

I've wanted to share my love for this recipe since I made it last thanksgiving.

My ENTIRE family, I'm talking grandparents, cousins, aunts, uncles, everyone that wasn't even keto to begin with LOVED this cake and even went back for seconds!

I was worried it might not be fully cooked or the people may notice it wasn't sweetened with sugar or they may not like the almond flour crust…

But when I tasted it myself..all my worries disappeared. This thing was one of the BEST keto cheesecakes I've ever tasted. Maybe one of the best cheesecakes in I've ever tasted.

It was that good.

Silky, smooth, rich, creamy..and then the crust..I prefer it to regular graham cracker crust. It's just got so much flavour! Especially with the little hint of cinnamon.

Anyways. You can probably tell I'm obsessed with this cheesecake.

I didn't think about sharing a post about it until today when I re-made it for my Dad's birthday and it came out even better than before..(if that was even possible).

But I'm finally getting to it because all of you need to stop what you are doing, throw away any other keto cheesecake recipe. This is the only one you need (okay not going to lie some of my other cheesecake variations on my site are still delicious so maybe don't completely toss them all out BUT this one is one of the best).

Now here's the kicker.

I didn't write this recipe!

All of the credit for this beautiful, delicious, amazing cheesecake goes out to Jennifer over at “Low Carb With Jennifer” or www.JenniferBanz.com.

The Best Keto Cheesecake Ever Ingredients

She did a fantastic job with this one. I especially love the addition of sour cream as it adds a tanginess that you can't get with just cream cheese.

She also uses the same sort of powdered sweetener that I always recommend on my site. A Powdered Monkfruit and Erythritol blend is truly the way to go if you'd like your keto desserts to taste as close as possible to the real thing. It's the best sweetener I've ever used. Personally I use the Sonourished brand and I believe Jennifer uses this very similar one for her cheesecake. Unfortunately the Sonourished brand has been having difficulty selling the powdered version on Amazon at the moment so I'd recommend Jennifer's choice or you can order the granular version of the Sonourished Monkfruit/Erythritol sweetener which is also fantastic!

Finally she uses a whopping 6 bricks of cream cheese and 5 eggs along with a tablespoon of vanilla extract.

Did I mention this cheesecake is HUGE? If you are looking for a traditional New York Style Cheesecake.. then look no further. This cheesecake is the epitome of EPIC. I believe mine came out weighing about 4.5lbs total.

Now if you are not ready to deal with that much cheesecake (as I know it's a lot) you can always half the recipe but still make the full crust as I've done before.

The crust itself is super tasty. It's a combination of almond flour, powdered monkfruit/erythritol, butter, cinnamon and in my case, a touch of salt. The crust isn't super thick. It's just the right amount.

    1. I’m sorry I didn’t have it listed earlier! That was an error on my part. It’s 2 cups or about 350g of sweetener!
