Strawberry Keto Cheesecake Bars

My 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

This 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

The keto cheesecake filling is made with fresh strawberries, full fat cream cheese and eggs. 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

The keto whipped cream is a combination of heavy whipping cream, confectioners swerve and vanilla extract. The three are whipped together with an electric mixer until medium peaks form.

Spread a thick layer of the keto whipped keto over top of the finished cheesecake. For an added touch, cover the top of the whipped cream with sliced strawberries.

Are Strawberries Keto?

Strawberries are safe to eat in moderation on the keto diet. Strawberries are relatively low in sugar and carbohydrates. One strawberry has 0.7 g net carbs. They make a delicious, sweet keto treat.

Storing Keto Cheesecake

Store keto cheesecake covered in an airtight container. Keep the strawberry keto cheesecake in the refrigerator. It will stay delicious for up to 3 days. This keto dessert can be made ahead of time and served the next day at your party or potluck.

  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!
