Ingredients Notes and Substitutions

  • Blanched Almond Flour: This is a keto-friendly alternative to traditional flour. It adds a nutty flavor and a fine texture. Be sure to check your expiration dates as almond flour can go rancid over time.
  • Brown Sugar Sweetener: For these mini cheesecakes I used this sweetener. It is low in carbs, gluten free and has a great brown sugar-like flavor. It can be measured cup for cup with regular sugar.
  • Salted Butter: The butter adds a rich flavor to the crust. Make sure that it is fully melted and completely mixed in with the almond flour. You can also use unsalted butter and just add ½ teaspoon of sea salt to the crust mixture. In place of butter you could also use coconut oil or even butter flavored coconut oil.
  • Cream Cheese: Use a full fat cream cheese and let it come to room temperature before using. Try these Mini Blueberry Cheesecakes
  • Rum Extract: The rum extract adds a rum-like flavor without the alcohol. You can adjust the amount to suit your personal preferences.
  • Keto Whipped Cream: See my notes below on how to make the perfect low carb whipped cream recipe.
  • Low Carb Candied Pecans: The candied pecans add the perfect crunchy element to these cheesecakes. They also make a pretty delicious snack. Try my Keto Candied Pecan Recipe

How to Make the Low Carb Cheesecake Crust

Preheat the oven to 350°F.  Line a standard sized muffin pan with muffin liners. Alternatively, you can use these reusable silicone muffin liners

In a mixing bowl combine the almond flour and the brown sugar sweetener. Add the melted butter to the bowl and mix until the almond flour is coated and is the texture of wet sand. Divide the mixture evenly amongst the 12 muffin liners. Use a spoon to evenly press the mixture down into the bottom of each muffin liner.

Bake the crusts for 8 minutes.

Add the eggs, rum extract, vanilla extract, cinnamon and nutmeg and mix until all ingredients are well combined and smooth. Use a rubber spatula to scrape the sides and mix in.

Baking the Sugar Free Cheesecakes

Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until the cheesecakes are set. They will still be a little jiggly in the center.

Allow to cool on the counter for 20 minutes.

Recipe Tips and Variations

  • Storage: Store leftover low carb eggnog cheesecake in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
  • Room Temperature Ingredients: Make sure that the cream cheese and the eggs are at room temperature. This helps with even mixing and a smoother cheesecake batter.
  • Over-mixing: Be careful not to over-mix the batter once you’ve added the eggs, or it will lead to a denser texture.
  • Toppings: These mini keto eggnog cheesecakes are also delicious topped with low carb chocolate, butterscotch, or caramel sauce.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is blanched almond flour, and can I substitute it with almond meal?

Blanched almond flour is made from blanched almonds, giving it a finer texture when ground. You can substitute it with almond meal, but the texture may be slightly coarser.

How do you make low carb whipped cream?

To make a keto whipped cream, simply add 1 cup of heavy whipping cream and 2 tablespoon of sugar free vanilla syrup to a blender and blend until thick and creamy.
