When you need a sweet, decadent dessert that won’t push your carb intake over the limit, you need to try these fried cheesecake bites.
My son took me out on a date the other night. We had a lovely dinner, and enjoyed some great catching up time with each other. I was able to stay on track with my carbs, fats, and proteins like a good, keto following girl.
But, then dessert came.
He ordered the deep fried cheesecake bites for us to share. As someone who wants to avoid sugar, and lose excess fat, I needed to stay away from them. As a mother who was having a great time with her adult son, I needed to share in them.
Fortunately, I was able to exhibit some self control and only eat 3 of the cheesecake bites at the restaurant. I never want that sick feeling from overindulging again.
Has that happened to you? Have you ever gone out to eat with friends, or had a lovely dinner party and wanted a rich, indulgent dessert but felt you couldn’t enjoy it? You may have seen all the fat bomb recipes all over the internet, but are they truly perfect for serving guests? Maybe. Maybe not.
These fried keto cheesecake bites are the perfect dessert to serve company, yet still stay on track with your new way of eating.
They feature rich cream cheese, sweet vanilla extract, with almond meal instead of graham cracker crumbs. Lightly air fried to a golden brown, they are a perfect end to any fine meal.
Don’t like giving dinner parties, or just want to indulge in your sweet tooth a bit, while staying true to the keto diet? With only 2 net carbs each, these cheesecake bites will also make a perfect sweet treat or fat bomb.
Now, they can easily be served hot, straight from the air fryer or oven, and they can be returned to the freezer for a chilled treat. Either way, you will get all the rich, creamy flavors of cheesecake without the guilt.
