1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

2. Place crust ingredients into a food processor and pulse until a soft dough forms.

3. Press the dough into a greased 7″ spring form pan.

4. Bake for 12-15 mins. Let cool.

5. In a stand mixer, combine cream cheese and Swerve (or sweetener of choice).

6. Mix until well combined, about 3 mins.

7. Add whipping cream and vanilla.

8. Whip until mixture starts to thicken and is completely smooth, about 5 minutes.

9. Pour mixture onto cooled crust and spread evenly.

10. Place in the fridge while making the final layer.

11. In a medium sauce pan melt butter over medium heat, add Swerve and stir until dissolved.

12. Add cream and vanilla, stirring continuously as the mixture comes to a boil.

13. Remove from heat, add almonds and pour this mixture over the top of the cheesecake, spreading evenly.

14. Place in the freezer for 3 hours or in the fridge overnight to set.

15. When ready to serve, remove the spring form pan, melt 1/4 cup Lily’s dark chocolate chips in the microwave and drizzle over the top of the cake.

16. Cut the cake into individual portions while frozen otherwise the caramel layer will crack and crush the cream cheese layer below.

More tips for keto baking:

  • Find low carb substitutions for your current favorite recipes.  Like almond flour instead of wheat flour and stevia instead of cane sugar.
  • Maintain a healthy balance of protein and fats.  Sometimes its hard to get enough fat and/or protein in a ketogenic diet so be sure to include a balance of both in your dishes.
  • Plan ahead and use tools like this Meal Planning Printable to reach maximum success.
  • Find recipes that you love, like these Keto Mint Chocolate Cookies, Dark Chocolate Almond Bars or Keto Turtle Cookies and use them in your must bake list.
  • Be sure to stock the kitchen with helpful tools (aff links) like this food scale, these measuring cups and a Kitchen Aid mixer.

When I recently hosted a keto potluck I had friends try this cheesecake, my Keto Fatso Salted Caramel Cheesecake, this Keto Pumpkin Pie Cheesecake and my Keto Blackberry Cheesecake to help me decide which one was the best.  Needless to say, we never did come up with a winner, they’re all delicious!
