These low carb chocolate cheesecake bites are the perfect dessert or snack to have on hand when your sweet tooth comes a calling. Creamy chocolate cheesecake rolled in crunchy toasted coconut or toasted pecans for less than 1g net carbs per bite.
I’m already for the new year. I’m trying to make and freeze dishes that are low carb and satisfy certain cravings so I won’t go off my diet. I have a lot of recipes for low carb sweets but I was craving cheesecake the other day and so I made these low carb chocolate cheesecake bites. I rolled some in toasted coconut and others in toasted pecans. Both were delicious and even got the thumbs up from my picky father in law! He’s diabetic so whenever I make something sugar free and sweet I have him taste test.
As I mentioned above I have a lot of low carb sweet recipes to alleviate my sweet tooth cravings. Check out my recipes page and scroll down to low carb sweets.
Cheesecake bites recipe
This is another easy recipe. You simply beat all the ingredients together with your mixer. Then refrigerate the cream cheese mixture for an hour so it hardens and is easier to handle. Take a spoon full and drop into a bowl of toasted coconut or toasted pecan bits. Roll them around in the nuts or coconut and then you can take them out and roll them into a ball. One thing you need to note is that you need to keep these refrigerated.
Some of the special ingredients I use are:
You can use different sweeteners if you like but you will have to play around with amounts to get the desired sweetness you want.
