A few tips for making mini chocolate cheesecakes:
Although this is not a difficult recipe at all, I do have a few tips to ensure its success:
To ensure a smooth texture, all ingredients must be at room temperature, which is always the case when making cheesecakes. One option is to remove the cream cheese and egg from the fridge two hours before you plan to start mixing the ingredients.
Alternatively, you can microwave the cream cheese for 30 seconds, and submerge the egg in warm water while you prep the ingredients.
Also similarly to other cheesecakes, they should be completely cool before you can enjoy them. Although – thankfully – there’s no need to refrigerate them. They are perfect after cooling on a rack for about 2 hours (but sometimes I eat them after just 1.5 hours!)
Make sure that your cream cheese is thoroughly softened first so that your Keto Chocolate Cheesecake Muffins are nice and smooth before baking. I use real Philadelphia cream cheese for this recipe.

Finding a good dessert when living the Keto lifestyle doesn’t have to be hard. Even if you aren’t a baker, this recipe is so easy to make.
Keto Chocolate Cheesecake Muffins
- Preheat oven to 350°F.
- Soften cream cheese then beat with a mixer until smooth.
- Add all other ingredients to cream cheese and mix on medium/high until completely
combined and the mixture is smooth.
- I recommend lining muffin tins with parchment paper muffin liners. You can find
them here. Line 12 muffin tins with parchment paper muffin liners and pour equal amounts batter in each.
- Bake for 18 - 20 minutes. Do not overbake.
- Best served cold with a couple of fresh berries and a dollop of whipped topping.
And for toppings? Add some fun berries that are in season or some delicious homemade whipped cream. I prefer these Keto Chocolate Cheesecake Muffins with strawberries, Lily’s Chocolate Chips, and whipped cream. Truly, you can add whatever keto-friendly toppings that suit your taste.
