When I was a young girl I remember going with my grandma to a little bakery in the mall in South Florida that made fresh Blueberry Cheesecake Muffins every morning. I remember my grandmother telling me how you could always “taste the difference” when real fresh ingredients were used. I always remembered Granny’s advice, and as I have grown up I have always tried to choose the freshest ingredients for all of my meals. When I had the chance to team up with Fresh From Florida and saw that blueberries are one of the top Florida produce in season right now, I just knew I had to recreate my beloved muffins – but keto style!
Fresh From Florida blueberries – as well as all Fresh From Florida labeled fruits, vegetables, and seafood – are part of the Florida Agricultural Promotional Campaign (FAPC) which means you are getting the best, freshest food from right here in Florida. Florida’s 47,000 small farmers make it easy for everyone to eat fresh produce year-round. Best of all – Fresh From Florida brands are available at many local grocery stores, convenience stores, and roadside stands. I love that I can get everything I need to feed my family the best food right at my local Publix.
I have always been a fan of cheesecake – and joke that one of the reasons keto was the right choice for me is because I could make a cheesecake that was compliant. I can personally eat cream cheese with just a spoon, but a few added ingredients make it that much more amazing. Most cheesecake ingredients suggest adding vanilla extract – but I mistakenly used almond extract once, and it made such a delicious difference, it is all I have used ever since.
You can actually make these one of two ways – either by filling your cheesecakes with the delicious blueberry sauce, or you can simply mix the blueberry sauce in with your cheesecake mix for beautiful little purpley cheesecakes. Either way is delicious. For these, I thought it would be fun to fill them for an extra little bite of blueberry surprise.
This recipe makes 12 individual blueberry filled cheesecakes. I used Swerve Sugar Replacement which is made with erythritol which does not affect blood glucose or insulin levels. Since blueberries are naturally low carb as well, these delicious treats come in with 3 net carbs, 166 calories and 15g of fat in each one. They are so rich they are a perfect way to satisfy your sweet tooth and are filling enough to keep you full.
