Keto Coffee Cheesecake Bars

I don’t think I have ever been so excited to share a recipe with you like I am about this one! This coffee cheesecake is deadly good, so be warned if you are following a strict Keto diet!

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 addictive and you really have to resist the urge.  

Keto Desserts

I have been loving and obsessing over my Keto brownies for a while now and have been making them almost every week to get me through the sweet cravings while on Keto.  However, I was thinking that it was time to change things up 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 and had to share with all of you.

This Keto 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.

I use a glass baking pan for this recipe like the one found here.


These coffee cheesecake bars can be stored in the fridge in an air tight container for up to 5 days. It can also freeze the cheesecake for up to 3 months.

I truly hope you enjoy this cheesecake as much as I do!
