It’s that time of the year again when the holiday season calls for delightful desserts, and what could be more delightful than a low carb, sugar-free cheesecake? Today, I’m sharing my foolproof recipe for this heavenly treat, and trust me, it’s a game-changer. Baking cheesecake in the Instant Pot ensures you get that uniformly creamy texture and honestly, it turns out perfectly every time. EVERY TIME. If you don’t have an Instant Pot, I’ve included the traditional oven-baked method which is still DIVINE. The result either way is a smooth and silky, low carb cheesecake with only 3g of net carbs…but you’ll never know!

Faux “Graham Cracker” Crust:

  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter melted
  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 1 tbsp Brown sugar sweetener I used Swerve
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • A pinch of salt
  • A few drops of graham cracker flavoring optional

Cheesecake Filling:

  • 24 oz cream cheese room temperature, 3 8-oz packages
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs room temperature
  • 4 tablespoons creme fraiche or sour cream
  • 1 cup sweetener I used Allulose
  • A pinch of salt


  • Mix all the crust ingredients together until they have a wet sand-like texture.1/4 cup unsalted butter
  • Press the mixture evenly onto the bottom of your prepared springform pan.
  • Bake at 325°F for 20 minutes until it turns a beautiful golden brown.
  • Allow it to cool on a wire rack while you prepare the filling.
  • In a large bowl, combine room temperature cream cheese and vanilla extract. Beat until smooth and creamy.24 oz cream cheese
  • Reduce speed to low and add one egg at a time.2 eggs
  • Incorporate the sour cream, sweetener, and salt until everything is smooth.4 tablespoons creme fraiche or sour cream
  • Instant Pot: Place the metal trivet at the bottom of your Instant Pot, add 1 1/2 cups of water, and cover the springform pan with aluminum foil. Carefully place it on the trivet, secure the Instant Pot lid, and set to high pressure for 35-40 minutes.
  • Oven: Pour water into a baking dish until it reaches halfway up the sides of the springform pan. Bake at 350°F for 50-60 minutes. The center may still be slightly jiggly, but it will firm up as it cools.
  • No matter which method you choose, once it’s done, let it cool for an hour and then transfer it to the fridge for at least 6 hours to set.
