Sugar Free Baked Ricotta Cheesecakes. 2g carbs and a mere 100 calories. Outstandingly simple yet totally scrumptious.
Just TWO INGREDIENTS, a touch of vanilla and some sweetener. That’s all you need for these keto treats. No flour of any kind, so they’re not only Gluten-Free, but also Nut-Free, Seed-Free, and Coconut-Free.
My mini ricotta cheesecakes provide 3 individual servings. They are delightful as they are, ‘naked’. But if you want, you can give them an extra boost by topping them with a little berry compote, or some whipped cream, or may be a drizzle of melted chocolate.
How To Make Sugar Free Baked Ricotta Cheesecakes
You won’t find any special ingredients in these delights. Just one egg, a 250g tub of ricotta, a dash of vanilla and some sweetener.
Drain the ricotta and discard the whey that escapes.
Pop the drained ricotta into a mixing bowl, crack a whole egg over it, add vanilla and sweeteners and whisk for a minute or so, until you end up with a smooth and puffy mixture.
Pour this into 3 silicone baking cups and bake. You want cups that are 2″ high and about 3″ in diameter like the ones below- the standard cupcake ones aren’t deep enough.
Couldn’t be any easier or quicker. These mini cheesecakes do need a long time in the oven (45 mins), plus additional cooling time, but they’re so worth the wait.
If, like me, you tend to forget ricotta is in the fridge until it’s almost past the ‘best by’ date, and you can’t think how to use it, this recipe will come to the rescue. You can thank me later…
UPDATE! ♥♥♥ So many of you have asked me about my tea cups and saucers! I bought mine in a small bakeware shop in Italy a long time ago. After searching for an hour, I have managed to find something similar, so here are the links, for both UK and USA shoppers.
