These single portion Lemon Blueberry Low Carb Cheesecake Muffins are one of my favorite keto desserts. When you combine a pop of lemon, with tart blueberries, and mouthwatering creamy cheesecake it makes an easy, delicious, and refreshing keto dessert.
Lemon Blueberry Low Carb Cheesecake Muffins
A couple of weeks ago we had friends over for dinner, which was the perfect time to try out a new keto dessert recipe. My family loves my Keto Blueberry Bread, and Keto Lemon Bread recipes, so I thought why not combine these into low carb cheesecake muffins for a fun and refreshing summer keto recipe.
Lemon Blueberry Keto Cheesecake Muffins have just the right amount of vibrant lemon flavor from the lemon zest and creamy sweetness with tart blueberries. These keto cheesecake muffins are easy enough to make with your kids and so tasty and refreshing you’ll want them again and again.
Is Cream Cheese Allowed on the Keto Diet?
Yes, cream cheese is high in fat and low in carbs making it a versatile addition to many keto recipes. It pairs perfectly in keto sauce recipes as it deepens the flavor and gives a nice creamy texture. In keto dessert recipes it adds an incredible creamy base for many different fat bombs, muffins, and low carb cheesecakes.
Tips for Making Lemon Blueberry Low Carb Cheesecake Muffins:
Let your cream cheese sit out at room temperature for a few hours so that it is softened. If you get a sudden hankering to make these Lemon Blueberry Low Carb Cheesecake Muffins and you can pop the cream cheese in the microwave on 50% heat until softened. Make sure to beat your cream cheese until there are no more lumps. This will provide a smooth and creamy texture for your sugar-free dessert. If possible, let eggs come to room temperature too before using them. If you don’t have time for this, as I often forget, it is not a deal breaker.
What sweetener is best used in Lemon Berry Low Carb Cheesecake Muffins?
My personal favorite is Lakanto Monkfruit as it has zero net carbs and zero calories. This sweetener is easy to measure out because it’s a 1:1 substitution to regular sugar. Along with being perfect for the keto diet Monkfruit is Non-GMO, has no maltodextrin, and in my opinion contains the least amount of aftertaste out of all sugar-free sweeteners.
How to Make a Low Carb Cheesecake Crust?
Although this particular recipe is crustless adding crushed pecans to the bottom of your muffin tin before adding the keto cheesecake batter will make a crispy crust. For more detail on how to add a crust to this recipe, check out my Keto Chocolate Chip Mini Cheesecakes.
What is the nutrition information in these low carb cheesecakes?
This is a great recipe when on the keto diet because it is low in carbs and high in fat, which helps with hunger control. In this recipe, there are only 2 net carbs, 16 grams of fat, and 4 grams of protein, making it the perfect low carb dessert.
Tip: Add your blueberries to the batter once in the muffin tins, so they do not sink to the very bottom of your cheesecake and to evenly distribute them in the batter. You can push them down into the batter just a bit, or sit them on top. With a baking time of only 19 minutes, this is the perfect recipe when you want an easy and delicious keto dessert fast.
What Kind of Cream Cheese has the Lowest Amount of Net Carbs?
The Philadelphia brand of cream cheese has fewer carbs than generic brands; there are also fewer ingredients. I always splurge for the real thing. Philadelphia cream cheese contains eight carbs in an 8 oz package, while generic brands often contain up to double the carbs for the same amount.
How can I store the cheesecakes?
The Lemon Blueberry Low Carb Cheesecake Muffins can be stored in the fridge for up to a week, or wrapped individually in saran wrap then placed in a freezer-safe container for up to six months. That way you can pull one out at a time for a delicious keto dessert.
