These mini keto blackberry cheesecakes are the perfect finger food to serve at your next gathering. They’re great for kids and adults alike, and your guests will love that they contain no added sugar!
Our batter contains all keto-approved ingredients, such as eggs, butter, cream cheese, blackberries and the keto-approved sweetener of your choice.
Be sure to use eggs that are organic and pasture-raised. Research shows that pasture-raised animal products are higher in several nutrients than grain-fed, such as omega 3 fatty acids, certain vitamins, and antioxidants.
Berries are packed with nutrients, such as vitamins, fiber, and antioxidants. They’re also delicious on their own and can easily be turned into a tasty dessert. Plus, they are one of the few fruits that are allowed on a keto diet.
You can use any berry you have on hand. Berries are high in anthocyanins, which are antioxidants pigments that give berries their vibrant color. Anthocyanins have been shown to reduce inflammation, fight chronic disease, and give you great looking skin (1, 2, 3).
Making the cake batter is simple. It requires cooking down the berries to release their flavor and turn them into a jelly-like substance.
Remember that this “batter” contains fiber, manganese, vitamin A, riboflavin (vitamin B2), vitamin K and altogether may reduce the risk of obesity, diabetes, heart problems, boost brain health, and support oral health.
If you really want to give these muffins a robust flavor, then try adding pieces of bacon bits to the mixture before cooking. The flavor combination of sweet berries and salty, crunchy bacon will not disappoint!
