For the crust:

  • 5 tbsp melted butter
  • 2 cups almond flour — coconut flour can be used instead, see recipe notes for more info
  • 3 tbsp sweetener — erythritol

For the Cheesecake:

  • 32 oz cream cheese — softened
  • 1 1/2 cups natural Keto sweetener — erythritol
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup Greek yogurt or sour cream
  • 4 eggs

For topping:

  • berries — optional


  1. Low-Carb Crust:
  2. Preheat oven to 350 F.
  3. In a bowl combine the almond flour, sweetener and melted butter, stir to combine.
  4. Line the bottom of a 10-inch springform (or a pan with removable bottom) with parchment paper. Grease theses with butter.
  5. Spread the crust mixture on the bottom and bake for 10 minutes. Bake for 10 minutes.
  6. Lower the oven temperature to 300 F.
  7. Low-Carb Cheesecake Filling:
  8. Cream together the cream cheese with the sweetener with an electric mixer for 5 minutes, scraping the sides and bottom of the bowl 1-2 times.
  9. Add the sour cream (yogurt) and vanilla and beat to combine.
  10. Next - add the eggs one at a time, beating after each addition, until fully incorporated.
  11. Pour the mixture over the crust and bake (I don't use a water bath for cheesecakes)
  12. Bake the cheesecake for 60-70 minutes, until the edges are set and the middle is a little soft and wiggly.
  13. Cool at room temperature completely, then refrigerate for at least 2 hours, before slicing.
