Keto Peanut Butter Cheesecake Recipe

We’ve all had cheesecake. And since cream cheese is low-carb already, we’ve probably all had keto cheesecake as well. With this recipe, I wanted to add a new flavor to the cheesecake: peanut butter! Not only that, most of the pie crust recipes out there are doughy… for things like apple pie or cherry pie. The pie crust I’ve created is more crumbly and sweet like crumbled graham crackers would be. You can substitute the monk fruit sweetener for one of your choice, but be sure to reference a conversion chart. If you decide to experiment and change up the recipe, let me know what you tried, and how it turned out!

  1. Very tasty recipe! All of the recipes so far have helped me keep off sugar, but this one is my personal favorite! Tastes like genuine cheesecake with a little peanut butter plopped on top. Looking forward to more! 🙂
