Low-Carb Cheesecake Muffin Recipe

From the kitchen of Dr. Randall Hansen

What follows is a very easy recipe for making delicious no-sugar, low-carb cheesecake muffins. It takes about 15 minutes of prep time, and another 18-20 minutes for baking.

This recipe is for a basic, no-sugar vanilla cheesecake muffin with no crust/base, but we offer suggestions for both bases as well as additional ingredients/flavors following the basic recipe.

Ingredients
  • 3 (8-ounce) packages of cream cheese, softened to room temperature
  • 1 cup of Splenda granular (you could also use Stevia or other non-sugar sweetener)
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract (all-natural, sugar-free)
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • Directions
    1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare 16-20 baking cups.
    2. In large bowl, mix together cream cheese and splenda.
    3. Next, add the eggs, one-at-a-time... and beat until well-blended.
    4. Add vanilla and whipping cream, beating at high speed.
    5. Spoon/ladle final mixture into baking cups.
    6. Bake for 18-20 minutes, until the muffins are firm.

    Baking Options
  • Base: We've used ground nuts, crushed low-carb granola, crumbles of low-carb cookies, and a packaged low-carb graham-cracker crust (1/4 cup)... all made by mixing with (1/4 cup) melted butter and spooning into the base of each muffin.
  • Flavors: We have made chocolate-chip, chocolate, and pumpkin cheesecake muffins:
  • Chocolate-Chip: Sprinkle low-carb, no-sugar chocolate-chips in the batter and/or sprinkle on top prior to baking.
  • Chocolate: Mix in up to 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder (such as Hershey's).
  • Pumpkin: Mix in up to one can (15 ounces) of pure pumpkin and 1 tablespoon of pumpkin spice.
