Keto Instant Pot Desserts

We all know that you can cook, saute, steam, dehydrate, pressure cook, and slow cook in an Instant Pot for quick and easy Keto Instant Pot Recipes.

But did you know you can also bake in an Instant Pot? 

Well, not bake as per se, but make perfect keto desserts with a blink of an eye. Especially Instant Pot Cheesecake Recipes, as they are super quick and easy. 

I got hooked the first time I heard this and tried plain Yogurt Cheesecake with only two ingredients. Of course, I had to make more and more, and especially for you Lemon Cheesecake, as well as put together a whole list of over 21 Instant Pot Dessert Recipes you can try.  

Is Cheesecake Keto?

As mentioned above, this confirms that you can make a super keto cheesecake keto with only a few alterations. 

Carbs in Cheesecake

Our cheesecake contains only 6 grams of carbohydrates per portion. With 2 grams of fiber, you get a perfect 4 grams of net carbs per piece.

Peanut Butter Recipes

Since I have also made my keto-friendly peanut butter, I had to go and experiment even further. 

Peanut butter is super popular, especially in our low-carb lifestyle. Adding peanut butter into various desserts or making peanut butter recipes is what so many people are looking for.

Why not? They are super easy to make and taste absolutely brilliant. Just take our Peanut Butter Cookies. Done with only 3 ingredients and in less than 20 minutes, that is exactly what we are all looking for. Quick and easy. 

Peanut Butter Fudge is another example. Super simple and always in our house instead of the candies you were used to. Dipped into a Peanut Butter Mousse, and you are in heaven. 

And do not let me start on our Chocolate Chaffle Cake

Recipe for Peanut Butter Cheesecake

As peanut butter on its own gives you that sweet, thick consistency, there is not much you need to add. No flour is required. Even a sweetener can be omitted as low-carb peanut butter is sweet on its own. 

All you need is something to hold it together, which is eggs in our case. Plus, of course, baking or cooking it, so we do not have to use gelatine. And that is. Plain and simple with a few ingredients, you get the best Keto Peanut Butter Cheesecake.

Peanut Butter

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

Carbs in peanut butter are minimal, and that is an excellent addition for us. 

The biggest rave started in our family when our younger daughter started asking for it all the time. She uses it on top of our Low Carb Crepes and prefers it much more than Nutella.

Peanut butter benefits

  • It contains Fiber and Protein, which fills you up for much longer; therefore, it is preferred to add it to 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 healthy fats, which are so much needed especially when following a 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 additional Vitamin B and Zinc also help our immune system.

Which Peanut Butter to buy?

When buying Peanut butter, be careful of the ingredients. Read the labels thoroughly and ensure it does not contain any added sugar. I have till now only bought creamed peanut butter with only peanuts as an ingredient. 

I only buy pure ones that do not contain anything else. No sugar, no additional salt, nothing.

And after I have realized you can make your own homemade peanut butter in seconds, I doubt I will be buying it again. You know precisely there is nothing else.

Crustless Peanut Butter Cheesecake 

To make it even quicker and reduce carbohydrates, I have also decided to skip the base. 

Peanut Butter Cheesecake without the base. You do not actually need it. What for.

It makes it one step less in preparation and all is done much quicker. 

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

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, which melts it all together. 

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

Keto Toppings

Keto Peanut Butter Cheesecake Recipe Variations

Before I go into the complete steps of making the easiest ever keto cheesecake, I have to mention some ideas that can be applied to any cheesecake recipes I have on the site. Read carefully because you can make many variations and even different keto desserts with the base. 

  • Add cocoa for peanut butter chocolate cheesecake.
  • Place into the mini muffin tints for keto mini cheesecakes bites
  • Mix into the dough some chocolate chips or crushed nuts
  • Swap Peanut Butter with Almond Butter to get you another perfect Cheesecake idea

STEP-BY-STEP INSTRUCTIONS FOR MAKING THE BEST KETO LOW-CARB CHEESECAKE 

First Step: Prepare Ingredients

As we only have 4 Ingredients in the basic Keto Cheesecake, it is easy to put them together. 

If you plan to make the crunchy topping, add brown sweetener and a bowl of peanuts. 

Keto Peanut Butter Cheesecake Ingredients needed.
Recipe for Peanut Butter Cheesecake

Second Step: Mix

Place all 4 ingredients into the bowl and mix: peanut butter, yogurt, sweetener, and eggs.

Third Step: Pour and cover

Pour the whole mixture into the Springform pan (that fits into your Instant Pot) lined with parchment paper from the sides as well. This will help in cleaning afterward. 

As you see in the picture, I have made a base handle or a thick sheet from the aluminum foil (check video) to place the spring form into the instant pot easily and especially take out once everything is done and hot. 

Cover the top of the springform pan with aluminum and ensure no air can come in or out. This will prevent your peanut butter cheesecake from becoming too dry and cracking.

Fourth Step: Instant Pot settings

Place your trivet into the Instant pot and add one cup of water. 

Gently place your spring form with an aluminum holder into the Instant Pot. 

Cover the lid and set your Instant Pot to pressure cook for 25 minutes on high pressure. 

Once done, take out of the Instant Pot, let it cool and place into the refrigerator to set fully, best overnight.

Fifth Step: Prepare crunchy Peanut Crumble.

You can prepare the crunchy topping crumbles for your cheesecake if you would like. This is optional, and you can skip this step.

Roast unsalted peanuts on the stove. Add Brown Sugar sweetener and let it melt. Mix together and pour onto the parchment paper. Once cooled, break into small pieces to make peanut crumbles.

Sixth Step: Serve

Once you are ready to serve, take your cheesecake out of the fridge, and sprinkle it with peanut crumble and dollops of yogurt. Open the spring form and serve.

Zuzana

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

Zuzana

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.
