Keto Cheesecake Bars
Everybody should be familiar with the famous Snickerdoodle cookie, right? Snickerdoodles are a cookie normally seen around the holidays, cookie swaps, bake sales ect. A soft cookie, but with a little crunch garnished with a yummy cinnamon and sugar coating. Snickerdoodles have always been a favorite in my family, but sometimes we get bored with having them the same old way, plus they aren’t keto!
I use my grandmothers delicious recipe she gave to me to keep the cookie tradition going through the family but, after a while we decided to change it up a bit. Let’s talk about cheesecake- creamy, smooth and decadent, another favorite in my family. My daughter’s especially. Anytime I ask the girls what they want for dessert or holiday treats its always cookies and cheesecake. That’s when we thought of putting the two together and creating Snickerdoodle Keto Cheesecake Bars. This was by far the best idea we could have ever thought of.
The best part of this yummy recipe is they are Keto/Low carb, gluten free and sugar free. But you won’t notice the difference and neither will your family. I tried to get my daughter to eat these, but the minute she realized they were sugar free she changed her mind and said they wouldn’t taste the same. So, I went into mom mode and told her I would make them “normal” (with sugar). Then she did what teens do best…… went to the couch on her phone as I proceeded to make them with sweetener, not sugar. Shhhhh. Just kidding, when they were done I yelled to her to come try them. She did and loved them. After a couple bites I admitted they were sugar free! She told me straight out she didn’t notice a difference. Once again, moms win!
