These Keto Cheesecake Stuffed Snickerdoodle Muffins are epic!  

Cheesecake and snickerdoodle desserts have always seemed to go over so well online and with family and friends. 

So at one point I figured..why not combine the two? 

That's when I first came out with my Keto No-Bake Snickerdoodle Cheesecake Bars that got DEVOURED at the party I brought them to. 

After that I created some Cheesecake Stuffed Snickerdoodle Cookies that also became a hit online. 

Now here we are today with what I believe to be the ULTIMATE keto cheesecake and snickerdoodle dessert.

These Keto Cheesecake Stuffed Snickerdoodle Muffins are seriously tasty. Normally I'm not a big snickerdoodle fan myself but I could eat these daily for dessert and/or breakfast! 

The filling is so rich and creamy and you can decide if you want them warm and gooey or chilled with that perfectly set cheesecake center..

These really do feel like you're cheating. 

The muffins for this recipe are based off of my new “lighter” keto muffin formula that uses both almond flour and coconut flour as well as some arrowroot starch. They come out so nice and fluffy every time. 

Though I will say, the cheesecake does slightly weigh them down in this recipe but not at all in a bad way. 

PS. You could also easily turn these into cupcakes by frosting them with a delicious sugar free cream cheese frosting like the one found here.

Ingredients In Keto Cream Cheese Snickerdoodle Muffins

  • Almond Flour & Coconut Flour – I use the Kirkland Costco brand of almond flour (I buy it in bulk on Amazon or at Costco itself occasionally) and this brand of coconut flour for this recipe. As I’ve noted in many of my past recipes, the brand of almond and coconut flour can affect the final outcome of the recipe because absorbency can vary depending on how the flour has been processed.
  • Powdered Monkfruit Erythritol Sweetener – I use the Lakanto brand for both granular and powdered sweetener and love it! The powdered is the best option for no-bake goods and desserts where you want a very smooth final product. I also used the powdered in this recipe because it works great in baked goods but ALSO creates perfect frosting every time!
    Xanthan gum – This is used to create a batter more similar to that of white flour. It helps give the muffins a chewier texture. You can also use cornstarch instead.
  • Arrowroot Starch – This can be substituted with cornstarch. It adds a lightness to the cupcakes and keeps them moist inside! It's become one of my new favourite ingredients
  • Vanilla Extract – You can use any you prefer, I tend to use pure vanilla but artificial or vanilla powder also work. I actually added vanilla powder to my frosting because I loved the flavour and little black specks it added!
  • Coconut Oil – melted butter can be substituted but I do find coconut oil to work best! low carb cinnamon muffins

Tools I Used To Make Keto Cheesecake Stuffed Snickerdoodle Muffins

  • Nutritional Food Scale – This is totally optional but if you like my recipes, I now have a $5 guide available with all of the substitutions I use to create every recipe on my site. You can use this to convert old traditional recipes and create new keto recipes! You can purchase it here and/or read more if you are interested. 🙂 I appreciate your support so much guys!
  • Nutritional Food Scale – AKA my best friend. This little buddy has been with me for over 4 years and never fails. Perfect measurements and only needs the batteries replaced maybe once a year!
  • Mixing Bowls
  • Hand Mixer
  • Spatula 
  • Muffin Pan
  • Whisk

Tips For Making Keto Cheesecake Stuffed Snickerdoodle Muffins

  • If you don't have arrowroot starch, you can also make these cupcakes using cornstarch in place of it. If you don't have either, you can leave it out and add an extra 1/2 tbsp coconut flour. Just know that the cake may not stay quite as moist in the center.
  • You don't have to use xanthan gum if you don't have it but I do highly recommend buying it when you can as it helps immensely with giving the cake a chewier, more traditional texture.
  • Make sure all of your cake ingredients are at room temperature so you don't cause the coconut oil to harden again when mixing.
  • If you want a prettier finally look to your cupcakes, make a sugar free cream cheese frosting like the one I used on my Keto Carrot Cupcakes to cover the indent caused by the cheesecake filling!
  • I use Truvia sweetener whenever I am making some kind of cinnamon “sugar” topping for desserts because it holds up really well and doesn't dissolve when baking. You can also use granulated monkfruit sweetener but it may not stay looking as granulated. Simply sprinkle a bit more once the muffins have cooled for the same effect. keto cream cheese stuffed muffins

How To Store Keto Cream Cheese Stuffed Snickerdoodle Muffins

  • Store these muffins in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 2 days. *These do best being frozen and then thawed again as a quick dessert, the fridge tends to dry them out after a day or two. They unfortunately cannot be left at room temperature for more than 2 hours at a time due to the cheesecake filling!
  • I recommend placing wax paper above and below the muffins in the container your are freezing them in to prevent them from getting freezer burnt.
