Keto Mini Gingerbread Cheesecakes

December 19, 2019Laura

These Mini Gingerbread Cheesecakes are amazing! I was recipe developing last week and really wanted something gingerbread flavored to enjoy during the holidays. I decided to take my regular mini cheesecake recipe and add in a few spices to make them gingerbread flavored. They turned out delicious and will be a perfect sweet treat after Christmas dinner!

I can’t believe Christmas is next week! I’ve been planning my dinner menu and really wanted a gingerbread flavored dessert. Cheesecake is one of my favorites, so I decided to go with that. I used my regular cheesecake base recipe and added in some ground ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and allspice. They smelled delicious baking and the gingerbread flavor was spot on. So yummy!

If you need some Christmas dinner side ideas, you can check out my Keto Holiday Side Ideas post here. I’m also going to make the Bacon & Ham Breakfast Casserole, Keto Candied Pecans and Keto Hot Chocolate recipes all from my E-Cookbook. I won’t be writing another blog post until after Christmas, so I want to wish you and your family a happy holiday! I’ll also be taking a few days off from social media to enjoy time with my family. Merry Christmas!
