Are you on keto and feeling the sugar cravings kick in? This keto coffee cheesecake is sure to satisfy your sweet tooth. In fact, if you are planning on making them, be sure you have enough carb allowance to eat more than one square because these are seriously delicious.
I have been obsessing over these Keto brownies for a while now and making them almost every week to get me through the sweet cravings. But I was thinking that it was time to change things and come up with some more low carb desserts.
I am a sucker for a good cheesecake. It’s my all-time favorite type of cake! So when I tweaked my regular, super quick and easy cheesecake recipe to suit my keto diet, I knew I had a winner.
This coffee cheesecake is super simple to make. The crust is made out of almond flour, butter and cocoa powder pressed down into a pan and baked for a few minutes. While the crust is baking, the prep for the filling takes literally no time.
This coffee cheesecake recipe is gluten-free and has my favorite flavor combination of chocolate and coffee!
Espresso Powder vs Regular Instant Coffee
The instant coffee used in this recipe is espresso powder which is made from dark roasted coffee beans that have been ground, brewed, dried, and then ground to a very fine powder (I like to use Nescafe Gold Espresso). It’s much more concentrated than regular instant coffee.
You can replace the espresso powder with regular instant coffee but the coffee flavor won’t be as strong if you replace it for the same 2 tablespoons that the recipe asks for. You can always increase the amount to suit your taste.
Add a Fat Bomb Supplement
Fat bomb supplements can be added to smoothies and other recipes to provide your body with more fuel, and curb cravings by keeping you satisfied longer.
Products like Naked Keto can add more healthy fats to your keto diet. The supplement combines powdered sunflower oil and powdered MCT oil. The sunflower oil helps support muscle growth, preserve lean muscle mass, and reduce body fat. The MCT oil powder promotes better metabolism and assists with weight loss. There are no additives or artificial sweeteners.
Add one scoop of the Naked Keto supplement to the crust of these coffee cheesecake bars. The dessert will be delicious and even more satisfying.
This keto espresso cheesecake can be stored in the fridge in an air tight container for up to 5 days. You can also freeze the keto cheesecake bars for up to 3 months.
I truly hope you enjoy this cheesecake as much as I do!
