In All Day I Dream about Food, there is a pumpkin cheesecake muffin recipe. It has a streusel topping, but you could leave it off if you want.

Google "all day I dream about food". It's Carolyn Ketchum's blog.
She's a type 1 diabetic and has beautiful recipes.
Everything I've made of hers has been wonderful.

Made these with strawberies today, so good. Haven't made them in a while. It's been a long and cold winter. I needed something more spring, summer tasting.

I do like these. They are so good that even my kids, son in law, and granddaughter like these. When I make them (and it is known), they do not last long. I made these again recently, froze them, and now, if I am wanting one, I put it in the microwave to thaw and warm through a bit. I like them being warm best.

I don't like Swerve because of the cooling effect, but I LOVE Natural Mate. They have 2, 1 with erythritol and sucralose and 1 with erythritol and stevia. I like them both. I just started using the one with stevia (I'm slowly eliminating sucralose). I bake with it all the time and have used it in uncooked dishes also. I highly recommend it. Netrition has a better price than Amazon.

I too find that mixing sweetners works w/ the cooling taste of erythritol. I really like Truvia, blend of erythritol and stevia. I tend to use Truvia and xylitol as my sweetners because they have the same bulk as reg. sugar. I really like the Kal Stevia powder but am only using it in tea at the moment.

I do not understand what cream cheese you are using. I used Kroger Original and the carb level per 8 oz was about 24 g of carbs, times 2 packages equals 48 g. 48 divided by 12 muffins would be 4 grams per muffin, not 2. Did I figure the incorrectly????

It's 1 carb per oz or 2 carbs per oz. So 8 grams or 16 grams per block of cream cheese.

8 ounces of regular cream cheese has less than 10g of carbs. Is there added sugar in the one you bought?

Have you tried the Oopsie rolls from *********** site with Almond Flour? I found it really helped reduce the egg texture. Carb difference in minimal, I found texture much more acceptable to me.

Born Ready, is it this?


It still comes out to 0.9 net carbs per roll!
Number of Servings: 6

Ingredients

3 large eggs
1/8 tsp cream of tartar
2.5 oz. cream cheese (do not soften)
1/4 cup almond flour


Tips

Be VERY gentle with the egg whites. Stop before you think you should. It's **OK**to still see a little bit of egg white lumps.

Directions
1. Take the eggs and cream cheese out of the refrigerator and let them warm to room temperature.
2. Preheat oven to 300 degrees F.
3. Separate the eggs
4. Add the cream of tartar to the whites and whip until VERY stiff. (Be careful not to overbeat them, though.)
5. In a separate bowl, and add cream cheese to the yolks using a mixer. Beat until very smooth.
6. Add the almond flour to the cream cheese mixture.
7. Take 1/3 of your egg whites and mix them into the cream cheese. Don't worry about folding yet, just stir them in completely.
8. Using a spatula, gradually fold the remaining egg whites (by 1/3 portions) into the cream cheese mixture, being careful not to break down the whites.
9. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and gently spoon the mixture onto the sheet, making 6 mounds. They should look like little snowmen.
10. Flatten each mound every so slightly.
11. Bake about 30 minutes (You want them slightly softer, not crumbly).
12. Let cool on the sheet for a few minutes, and then remove to a rack and allow them to cool
13. Store in a loosely open sack and allow to rest on the counter before use (otherwise they might be too moist).

Serving Size: Makes 6 rolls

That's it!!

I use baking powder instead of cream of tartar due to cost mainly and it's what I always have on hand. Comes out great every time. Could be just me, but I also had a difficult time with the egginess of the original oopsie and did much better with the "texture" of this recipe. Glad to see that about carbs too.
Thanks for looking it up, I was going to try and remember to do so when I had more time today

These little cookies are very similar

Cheesecake Bites
16 oz cream cheese, softened
1 egg
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup chopped nuts
Artificial sweetener equal to 1/2 cup sugar

Beat the softened cream cheese with the egg. Add in the vanilla, nuts and sweetener and beat until thoroughly mixed. Drop by spoonfuls onto a cookie sheet lined with foil or parchment.

Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven until the edges are browned. Start at 15 minutes and watch them closely until you find out how fast they cook in your particular oven. They will puff, then fall, when they begin to wrinkle on the top, they are ready.

Remove from the cookie sheet and place onto cooling racks. Store in an airtight container.

Makes about 60 cookies. 3 cookies = 1g carbs.

I've been trying something new several times a week to keep me from boredom of the same ol, same ol, plus I like to cook so I need the involvement in it. I'm feeling the Cheesecake Bites as this weekends experiment. Thanks sbwertz!

Made these this weekend sbwertz but unfortunately I used only Truvia. Too much artificial aftertaste for me with the Truvia. I'll mix sweetners or use only Splenda next time as I can see they could be delish, in fact almost too good

My favorite sweetener for baking is Ideal from Netrition, a mix of xylitol and some others. Really good.

has anyone made this as a cheesecake instead of the muffins? If so, what was baking time? I would use the original recipe on page 1 of the thread:
2 8oz. pks. philadelphia cream cheese
1/2 cup sweetener (I use spenda)
2 eggs
1/2 tsp. vanilla

Soften cream cheese about 40 seconds in microwave. Add other ingredients. Beat with mixer till smooth. Pour into 12 muffin pans lined with the papers. Bake at 350 for 20 min.

Thanks!!!!
