Who says you need to eliminate cupcakes from your diet? These delicious Low Carb Cheesecake Cupcakes are easy to make, packed with protein, low calorie, and keto friendly!

Low Carb Cheesecake Crust

For your low carb crust, mix together 1/4 cup of almond flour, 1/4 cup of coconut flour, and a tablespoon of coconut oil.

Melt a tablespoon of butter, add that in, and mix again.

Next, take out a pan with some silicone cups and press your mix evenly into each one. This is optional (my preference) but you can throw them in the oven for 10 minutes on 350F/176C to make them “crunchier”.

Low Carb Cheesecake Cupcakes

For the low carb cupcakes, add into a bowl 8 ounces of fat free cream cheese, 1 tablespoon of a sweetener, 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract, 1 large whole egg, and 1 scoop of protein powder.

Mix that until smooth then distribute it into your silicone cups.

Top your low carb cheesecake cupcakes with whatever you want and throw them in the oven. Bake them on 350F/176C for around 15-20 minutes.

Let them cool, wrap them up, and throw them in the fridge either overnight or for a couple hours.

The silicone cups will make it super easy to remove them once they do cool, seriously a great investment…I’ve had mine for years!

Less than 5 grams of net carbs each and each one is actually pretty filling for its size!

You can switch these up when you’re bored by using different flavored protein powders or adding on top fruit, nuts, and so on. Let me know your low carb cheesecake cupcake variations in the comments below.

    Hi there! What you’re doing here with all these recipes is amazing! I can still eat the things I love without the guilt! Quick question for ya. If you only have coconut flour, can you just use that instead or the coconut almond combination? Or will that affect taste and texture?

      Hi Stevie! You can definitely use just coconut flour. Almond flour helps keep things a bit more “moist” but it won’t be too noticeable here.
