Low Carb Keto Blueberry Swirl Cheesecake – A Holiday Treat
This week we bring you the first recipe in our series of 4 holiday Keto and Low Carb recipes. This week we present a Low Carb Keto Blueberry Swirl Cheesecake. This recipe was inspired from LowCarbYum.com (check out her blog) , however we made some changes basically because of personal preferences regarding the sweetness level of the cheesecake, we also used a 8 inch spring form pan instead of the 10 inch as mentioned in the original recipe. This recipe could also be made using a regular pie pan, or a casserole dish, however, spring form pans are much more affordable now and a handy kitchen aid to have around. This is sure to be the hit of any holiday gathering, it delicious, beautiful and most of all keto safe. You don’t have to feel left out, at those upcoming holiday events in fact the “carbies” will probably eat more of than than you will.

Low Carb Blueberry Cheesecake
- 1 3/4 Cup Almond Flour
- 1 tsp Cinnamon
- 3 TB Artificial Sweetner Make sure you understand how sweet what you use is releative to sugar
- 1/2 cup butter (melted)
- 16 Oz cream cheese (4 pkgs) softened
- 1 cup of artificial sweetener We preferred a monk fruit Eryithitol blend
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 2 Eggs (Room Temperature)
- 1 cup blueberries (thawed)
Preheat over to 350 degrees
Combine crust ingredients in a bowl, mix well to form a dough.
Take your dough and press into a greased springform or pie pan
Cook crust for 7 to 8 minutes.
In a large bowl combine filling ingredients, adding in eegs one at a time until the filling is fluffy and creamy and sweetened to taste.
Add to crust.
Puree your blueberries in a food processor or blender.
Drop by dollops of blueberries on to the prepared cheesecake batter.
Using a knife swirl the filling into the top of the cheesecake batter.
Bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes
After 40 minutes check to see if the center of the cheesecake has set, if should only be slightly jiggly...if you need additional baking time lower your oven temperature to 300 degrees and bake it an additional 10 to 15 minutes.
Your cheesecake will need to set a minimum of 2 hours before serving, and ideally overnight. As the cheesecakes sets it will shrink and this is normal.
Although we added additional sweetener to our cheesecake it still was a little less sweeter than we prefer, this of course is a personal choice.
We plan on experimenting with powdered Splenda the next time we make it for our family, just to see what the difference is.
This recipe can also be modified and used with other types of berries.
