Instant Pot

As our Instant Pot is getting more and more popular in the family, I can not believe how many options there are. You can make almost anything inside the Instant Pot. My first goal was to just try and boil a perfect egg, but unfortunately never got to make it.

When I got my instant Pot for Christmas, I went onto the Pinterest to search for some recipes and I was just astonished what all one can make. Now I have a list so long, that one year would not be enough to make it all.

Additionally to that more and more ideas started popping in my head and as I love experiencing, in a week, I made 5 new Keto Instant Pot Recipes, which will slowly come onto our Blog. 

Even yesterday, all I did was buy a piece of pork, marinated, and straight into the Instant Pot. In 1 hour we had the best Pulled Pork one can imagine. I am just so in love with this new gadget. 

You do not even need an oven in the house. All can be done inside an Instant Pot.

Easy Keto Peanut Butter Cheesecake in an Instant Pot

The idea for a peanut butter cheesecake came immediately while searching for Instant Pot ideas.

As I have just bought recently quite a lot of Peanut Butter for some cookie recipes. And since I have already started making our best ever Instant Pot Keto Cold Start Greek Yogurt on a regular basis, I had an idea to try and make a Cheesecake out of it as well. You can have a look at our another Lemon Cheesecake with Meringue Icing also made in an Instant Pot.

Peanut Butter Cheesecake without the base.

To make it much easier, as you can see, I have decided to skip the base. You do not actually need it.

And it makes it one step less in preparation and all is done much quicker. As an addition to that, maybe some of you do not even like the crusts of cheesecakes. I personally do not really need it and this Easy Keto Peanut Butter Cheesecake in an Instant Pot is more filling and satisfying then one could be.

Filled with all of the probiotics from yogurt and powerful antioxidants from peanut butter itself, this cheesecake is not only unbelievably tasteful but full of health benefits for us.

Peanut Butter Health Benefits:

As a child, we have never heard of Peanut Butter. It was not at all popular in our region and only came to know it when we moved to Dubai. We had lots of friends from the US and for them, Peanut Butter sandwiches were a must in the daily diet. When I have tried it for the first time, I must say, I did not like it at all. The sweetness together with a bit of saltiness just did not go well for me. 

But as the years gone by and I have tried it on several occasions, I have learned to like it. And after reading a bit of all of the health benefits of Peanut butter, I started liking it even more.

Since we have transitioned to our Low Carb Lifestyle, with great satisfaction, I have realized, peanut butter is a big part of it as well.

But the biggest rave started in our family when our younger daughter started asking for it all the time. One day I have realized a jar of peanut butter, I have opened just a week before was almost gone. She loves it big time and eats it just as it is, one spoon a minute 🙂

She uses it on top of our Low Carb Crepes and actually prefers it much more than Nutella.

Or you can make the easiest Keto Peanut Butter Mousse or Peanut Butter Keto Cookies in the world with only 3 ingredients.

Peanut butter

  • Contains Fiber and Protein, which fills you up for much longer and therefore it is preferred to add it into your Breakfast option. 
  • It also contains Magnesium, potassium and ever needed Vitamin E, which gives you even more reasons to have it in your Pantry.
  • It is filled with all of the healthy fats, so much needed especially when following Low Carb High Fat diet.
  • contains a pretty high amount of calories, which in exchange give you an energy boost for your whole day
  • Because of additional Vitamin B and Zinc, it also helps with our immune system

Which Peanut Butter to buy?

When buying Peanut butter, be careful of the ingredients. Read the labels thoroughly and make sure, it does not contain any added sugar. I have till now only bought creamed peanut butter.

I only buy pure, the ones, which does not contain anything else. No sugar, no additional salt, nothing. Or if in need just make it at home from unsalted fresh peanuts. That way you know exactly there is nothing else, which might either get you out of ketosis or raises your sugar, which is all we are working against. 

With any of the crunchy peanut butter, I have realized, that they are all covered with additional sugar, I guess to keep the crunchiness intact. 

And at the end, you can make your own crunchy peanut butter spread. Just mix our Peanut Butter Cheesecake topping with plain peanut butter and you have it.

Peanut Butter Cheesecake Topping

Since I have skipped the crust of a base for this cheesecake, I have decided to add some toppings, so this perfect Easy Keto Peanut Butter Cheesecake in an Instant Pot is not boring looking. 

All I did was get unsalted peanuts. Pre-cut them into smaller pieces, roast a bit in a pot and add our most favorite Brown Sweetener (Lakanto or Sukrin – both works fine), which melts it all together. 

As a great company, Lakanto is offering to all of our readers 20% of ALL of their Products using a Coupon Code: LOWCARB-NOCARB.

Crush it into pieces and spread it all over the cake to add the best satisfaction you all deserve and crave for. 

Using a very similar method, but using Sesame Seeds and liquid sweetener I have also made Sugar-Free Sesame Brittle Bars you can have a look at.

Can you make this Easy Keto Peanut Butter Cheesecake in the oven?

Of course, you can. I have not made it myself, but from experience, use the same instructions and leave it for 45 minutes instead of 25 at 325-350F as a standard temperature for all the cheesecakes. Also to keep the creaminess, I would suggest adding a pan filled with water into the oven. That would give you the same feature as Instant Pot does for this particular recipe.

How long can you keep Cheesecake in the fridge?

Because this cheesecake is pressure cooked, there is no worry from eggs becoming bad or the yogurt itself. So without worry, you can keep this Keto Peanut Butter Cheesecake in the fridge up to a week. 

I would also suggest to place it into the fridge for a few hours before serving it.

In that way, the whole cheesecake will set fully cold and would be perfect while serving and cutting it. 

I do hope you enjoy this Instant Pot Keto Peanut Butter Cheesecake recipe as much as we do.

Wednesday 25th of November 2020

I am sure you can use other nuts or nut butter. Let me know how it went.

Hello! Do I have to release the pressure Myself after the 25 minutes cooking or leave it to release by itself??


Tuesday 16th of June 2020

I just let it release it itself. But if you are in a hurry both will work and the cake should be ready at that time.


Monday 1st of June 2020

Hello! I want to make this cheesecake, but I only have an oven. I also only have a 5 and 6 inch baking pan as I live alone thats why I make small cakes. When you say put a pan with water in the oven, where exactly should I put it? Should the baking pan go into the pan with water? And how long should I bake it if I halve the recipe ( 5 or 6 inch pan?)? Sorry for so many questions..


Tuesday 2nd of June 2020

I normally place a pan with water on the shelve just under the cheesecake.
