Keto Chocolate Cheesecake Muffins Recipe
Finding a good dessert when living the Keto lifestyle doesn’t have to be hard. I talk to so many people who state that it’s one of their biggest fears of going Keto – losing flavor and great food options. I honestly can’t disagree more. In fact, ever since my husband and I transitioned to eating Keto, I don’t feel like we’ve missed out. When we first started the Keto diet, I had to change my mindset, but once I did and fully embraced it, I can’t imagine not eating Keto!

I always say that research is your best friend so that you can be your best health advocate.
How to Make Keto Chocolate Cheesecake Muffins
The key to a good cheesecake muffin? For this recipe to have that “wow” factor, make sure that your cream cheese is thoroughly softened first so that your Keto Chocolate Cheesecake Muffins are nice and smooth before baking.
One of the biggest reasons that I love this recipe is that it’s super simple to make with only five ingredients, but tastes like it took a long time. It’s one of those super easy recipes that come out perfect every single time.
I recommend using parchment paper muffin liners. You can find them on Amazon here. They make such a huge difference because nothing sticks at all leaving beautiful Keto Chocolate Cheesecake Muffins.
I use a cookie scoop to get nice even muffins and my muffin pan stays mess-free making it much easier to wash later. Anytime I’m baking desserts that require; I always make sure to use 100% pure vanilla extract. I just find that it tastes so much better than the imitation variety. I also use real Philadelphia cream cheese in recipes instead of the generic variety as the generic brands typically contain more carbs.
Toppings for Low Carb Chocolate Cheesecake Muffins
And for toppings? Add some fun berries that are in season or some delicious homemade whipped cream. I prefer these Keto Chocolate Cheesecake Muffins with a few roasted pecans, Lily’s Chocolate Chips, and whipped cream. Truly, you can add whatever keto friendly toppings that suit your taste.
If you find that you can’t eat them all, you can always freeze them for later as well. I recommend freezing Keto Chocolate Cheesecake Muffins individually that way you can grab one out at a time to enjoy rather than having to thaw them all together.
This recipe is so versatile. You can add and subtract different ingredients and completely change the recipe. I’ve included links below to a couple of different Keto Cheesecake Muffins that are all amazing!
