    strawberries sliced and sitting on a cakeMy all time favorite dessert as a kid was cheesecake. Especially if you drizzle a sugary strawberry or cherry sauce on top. Delicious! I was thrilled to learn that my favorite childhood dessert can easily be turned into a ketogenic version.This recipe for keto strawberry cheesecake bars is smooth, creamy and filled with sweetness and flavor from real strawberries. Topped with keto whipped cream and sitting on a crunchy keto shortbread crust. This is a keto cheesecake that will disappear fast, so you better get yours first!

    Keto Shortbread Crust

    keto cheesecake crust exposed sitting on parchment paperThis keto cheesecake sits on a crunchy, buttery shortbread keto crust. It has coconut flakes in it to give it crunch when you bite into the bars. If you aren’t a fan of coconut, you can omit the coconut flakes; however, they don’t really add too much coconut flavor. Just a hint.The crust is baked in a square baking dish. To make it easy to lift out your keto cheesecake bars once they are done, I recommend lining the baking dish with parchment paper rather than using oil spray to keep it from sticking.If you wet the parchment paper and wring out the excess water, it will become flexible and easily lay down in the baking dish. Then press the keto crust mixture on top of the parchment paper and bake! Make sure your parchment paper is long enough to have the edges hang over. When your bars are done, you can use these edges as handles to lift the whole thing out and slice into 12 pieces.

    Keto Cheesecake Filling

This cheesecake recipe is baked which creates a fluffy, thick and creamy cheesecake base.I like to use a combination of Swerve and monk fruit. Swerve is mostly erythritol. The combination of erythritol and monk fruit creates the best tasting and most authentic tasting keto desserts.

    Keto Whipped Cream

    1. Hello there! I’m new to your website and loving it!
      Some of your recipes, like the one above, call for “monk fruit.” I’m new to some of these ingredients – do you mean a monk fruit sweetener or the actual monk fruit?
      And most monk fruit sweeteners I’ve looked into are mostly erythritol. Is there one that is all monk fruit?
      Thank you so much!

    2. I have tried so many dessert recipes, but I have an aftertaste with each. I loved the Strawberry Cheesecake Bars! Five stars! Will serve this for company. Thank you for your efforts in making my Keto journey more pleasant.

    3. I follow you on Youtube and am sooo grateful to you for sharing your Keto wisdom because it can tend to get confusing and boring but you have made so many practical yet delicious recipes that I actually look forward to cooking! Thank you again

    4. I have been making this excellent recipe since you first posted it. We both enjoy it very much, however, my husband calls this the best dessert he has ever tasted! Everyone that we have served it to is surprised that there is no sugar in it. I make it in a parchment lined springform pan using strawberries or blueberries. There is no need to put the blueberry mixture through a blender. Thank you so much for developing this.

      1. I’m so glad you mentioned blueberries, Jane! I’m not a big strawberry fan but love blueberries, so I’ll be making this with blueberries without blending first.😉
