This low carb Cinnamon Cheesecake has an amazing creamy texture and the best “brown sugar” pecan crust! I’ll let you in on a secret: it’s actually sugar free. THM S
The subtle cinnamon filling with its pecan accompaniment is a nod to autumnal temperatures, falling leaves, and all things cozy, but trust me – you can make this cinnamon cheesecake at any time of year. Is it just me or is pumpkin WAY overdone? We need some new star voices in the fall flavor choir.
So good, I made it multiple times!
This Cinnamon Cheesecake is my new favorite cheesecake recipe – and I’ve got lots of cheesecake recipes! You know it’s good when I’ve made it multiple times since perfecting the recipe.
(Fun fact: I rarely make my own recipes again after I’m done testing them for the blog. There are too many NEW recipes out there to be created!)
Ryan loved it, and so did my mom when she came for a visit. I think it’s the perfect simple Thanksgiving dessert. It really is super easy to make, with the only “extra” step being grinding up some pecans for the crust. I think you can handle that. 😛 Since springform pans can look intimidating to some people, I just baked this recipe in an 8″ x 8″ glass pan. Easy peasy.
My favorite THM desserts to serve to guests
I like to make cheesecake recipes like this for company or parties because they taste more “normal” to someone who isn’t used to alternative flours and sweeteners. Baked goods – like cakes – that use large quantities of baking mix can take some getting used to. Cheesecakes rely on thin crusts (in this case, made from the universally enjoyed pecan) and thick creamy centers made of something very, very normal: cream cheese.
Speaking of crusts, the “brown sugar” pecan crust on this cinnamon cheesecake is hands down the best part of the cheesecake. DO NOT SKIP.
How to serve this Cinnamon Cheesecake
Serve it up with some Reddi-wip, Carb Smart or other sugar free vanilla ice cream, and/or some sugar free caramel topping!
Vanilla ice cream recipes:
- Basic Vanilla Scoopable Ice Cream – a good recipe to start on. Cooked custard base, good balance between scoopability and calorie density.
- Special Occasion Ice Cream – another excellent recipe (that will be updated soon). No cook base, a little heavier on the cream which means higher calories but amazing scoopability and deliciousness.
- Basic Ice Cream – call this one “Old Faithful.” No cook base, lighter on the calories so best used as a soft serve eaten right after churning.
