Healthy Keto Raspberry Cheesecake Bars 

These Keto Raspberry Cheesecake Bars are so filling that you won't feel the need to scarf down a dozen – but they taste amazing, so you may want seconds!

Thanks to grass-fed butter, sour cream, and cream cheese, these cheesecake bars are full of healthy fats, which make them the perfect keto treat.

Dessert on Keto

Although the keto diet prohibits sugar, you can still enjoy upgraded versions of your favorite desserts.

With just a few simple swaps, you can turn a carb-loaded dessert into a fat and protein-filled treat that will keep you satisfied and won't send you on the “glu-coaster”.

The desserts that you typically find in a grocery store are loaded with sugar, highly processed additives, and practically no nutritional value at all.

Keto Raspberry Cheesecake Bars Ingredient Swaps

With just a few simple swaps, you can turn any dessert into a delicious keto one!

For these bars, here are the swaps we made.

  • Swap #1: Swap white flour for almond flour! It adds more nutrients and healthy fats, which and makes the dessert more filling with less carbs.
  • Swap #2: Swap sugar for erythritol! It's a staple for keto desserts and recipes.
  • Swap #3: Swap brown sugar for Sukrin Gold! If you are unfamiliar with Sukrin Gold, it is a brown sugar substitute made from erythritol and stevia.  It really does have the warmth and texture of brown sugar that you just can't get from regular erythritol.

Can You Have Fruits on Keto?

Fruit on the ketogenic diet can be tricky. Some people think you must eliminate fruit completely, while others (like us) believe that certain low-carb fruits can be included in moderation as part of a healthy keto diet.

When looking at fruit, pay attention to the net carb count (total carbs minus fiber).

Here are our CKL-approved fruits:

  1. Lemons and Limes: 4 grams net carbs/fruit
  2. Blackberries: 6 grams net carbs/cup
  3. Raspberries: 7 grams net carbs/cup
  4. Strawberries: 8 grams net carbs/cup
  5. Blueberries: 9 grams net carbs/half cup

This recipe uses fresh raspberries, which are packed with antioxidants and essential nutrients.

Raspberries contain high levels of Vitamin C, Vitamin K, and manganese, so this dessert has better nutrition profile than a store-bought raspberry pastry (that uses sugary raspberry preserves instead of the actual berry).

What Equipment You Need

Keto Raspberry Bars

Let's Get Cooking

First, you will be making 4 layers for these Keto Bars.

  1. Almond Layer: Made with melted butter, granular erythritol,  eggs, almond extract, and almond flour.
  2. Cheesecake Layer: Made with softened cream cheese, sour cream, eggs, vanilla extract, and granular erythritol.
  3. Raspberry Layer:  Made with just raspberries.
  4. Crumble Layer: Made with almond flour, a brown sugar substitute (such as Sukrin Gold), and butter.

All you need to do is to prepare each layer into four separate bowls like we did below.

Assemble the Keto Bars

Next, line a 7 x 11″ inch baking pan with parchment paper.

Pour in the almond layer first and spread out evenly across the baking pan.

Dollop the cream cheese layer on top of the almond layer. Use a spatula to gently smooth the cream cheese mixture over the almond layer without getting the two mixed together.

Carefully, spoon the raspberry sauce on top of the cream cheese layer and sprinkle the crumbles over top.

Make sure to just gently sprinkle the crumble layer over top. You don't want the crumbles to mix into the other layers.

It should look like the picture below.

Bake at 325°F for 45-60 minutes or until the edges start to brown and center is cooked through.

Let the Keto Raspberry Cheesecake Bars cool for 45 minutes to an hour before cutting them into squares.

We know that is a long to time to wait for these delicious keto bars – but trust us, the wait is worth it!!

Also, we won't judge (or blame you) if you take a small bite off the corner while you wait!

I don’t really have a comment more a question. Could I substitute the almond flour for coconut flour? Almond flour makes my husband and I sick. Thank you.

Hi Ashley! So substituting almond flour for coconut flour wouldn’t work for the Almond Layer of this recipe. But we do have a coconut crust recipe that you could use.

Coconut Crust Recipe:

1/2 cup coconut flour
1/4 cup collagen peptides
6 tablespoons melted coconut oil or melted butter
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup sweetener
2 teaspoons water

Mix all the ingredients in medium bowl and press into dish. Bake at 350°F for 14 minutes.

Bake this crust first then add the cream cheese and raspberry layers and bake for another 25 minutes or so.

You can sub 3 tablespoons of coconut flour for the almond flour in the crumble layer.

Hope this help!

In the text body it says coconut oil is in the recipe, but it’s not an ingredient in the bars. Is it supposed to be in there? If so, where?

I made this today, a little skeptical after doing keto for nearly 3 years and learning, from many failed recipes that just because it looks and sounds amazing doesn’t mean it tastes amazing. BUT…….this does!!! This is absolutely AMAZING!! Tastes just like cherry bake well tart to me and the almond taste coming through is a winner in my book! Well done, this really is bloomin delicious! I’d post a pic of mine if I could as it looks the part! Thanks so much for sharing!

Hello, on the nutrition facts is it 4.5 g of carbs per slide? And how big are the slices? Thanks!

Reply
Clean Keto Lifestyle January 18, 2020 - 2:33 pm

Hi Sandra – the slices are about 1.5-2 inch squares.

I just prepared these moments ago. I used every item listed with no substitutions. I’m going to post a picture and share my thoughts on this well put together recipe. The finished product looks delicious.
