Chocolate Low Carb Mini Cheesecake Recipe


Many people follow a low carbohydrate diet. This may be to help lose weight or to control diabetes. Cheesecake is the perfect dessert to make low in carbs. These are mini cheesecakes, which also help from overindulging. Stevia replaces the sugar in this recipe. It is a natural sweetener that has zero carbohydrates. Besides being low carb there are no calories in this sweetener. Stevia is all natural and comes from a plant of the same name. A typical cheesecake crust is made with the crumbs of cookies or graham crackers. This cheesecake crust is replaced with almonds. For this version I used cocoa covered almonds, however, regular almonds are great too.
