KETO LEMON CHEESECAKE BARSdddd

These keto cheesecake bars are a lemon lover’s dream! A creamy lemon cheesecake filling baked on a tender almond flour crust. Sugar-free and grain-free but oh so delectable. Keto desserts don’t get more delicious than this.

Ingredients

Crust:

Cheesecake Filling:

  • 16 oz cream cheese softened
  • 1/2 cup powdered Swerve Sweetener (more if you like it sweeter)
  • 2 tsp lemon zest (about 1 large lemon)
  • 3 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp heavy whipping cream
  • 2 large eggs

Instructions

Crust:

  • Preheat the oven to 350F. In a large bowl, whisk together almond flour, sweetener, and salt. Stir in the melted butter until well combined.
  • Press evenly into the bottom of an 8-inch square pan and bake 10 minutes – it won’t be cooked through. Set aside and let cool.
  • Reduce the oven temperature to 275F.

Lemon Cheesecake Filling:

  • Beat the cream cheese in a large bowl until smooth. Beat in the sweetener, and then beat in the lemon zest, lemon juice, and cream until no lumps remain.
  • Beat in the eggs until just combined – do not overbeat as this can cause cracking.
  • Spread the filling over cooled crust and bake 35 to 45 minutes, or until filling is just set and the center barely jiggles when shaken.
  • Let cool 30 minutes, then chill for at least 2 hours.
  • Garnish with powdered sweetener and additional lemon zest, if desired.
