Ok, this was a fun dessert to put together and oh, my goodness this sugar free cheesecake is HEAVENLY!

My goal was to make a party-style cheesecake that can be sliced up and shared at a potluck or any family gathering.  Of course, I also want to keep it low carb so I could enjoy a slice (or two) as well.

This isn’t my first attempt at making a low carb cheesecake.  Back in August I made this traditional springform pan style crustless pumpkin cheesecake, which is a simple way to significantly lower the carbs.

No crust regrets though.  The cake served up nicely and the pumpkin spice flavors kept tantalizing the tastebuds in that cake.  The crust wasn’t missed at all!

However, for this sugar free cheesecake a good crust base is necessary, especially when adding a layer of gooey maple pecan topping.

One of my favorite gluten free crusts is the one I use for my lemon bars , so I revised the recipe by swapping the coconut oil for butter.   Everything is better with butter, right?  Butter and BACON!

The cheesecake filling is adapted from Williams-Sonoma’s Triple-Citrus Cheesecake, and the topping is a modification of my  Pumpkin Pancakes with Pecan Maple Syrup recipe.

This sugar free cheesecake tastes completely different from my pumpkin cheesecake.   Obviously because of the flavors, but also the textures are different.  The sour cream in this plain cheesecake aids the velvety smoothness.

This recipe can be enjoyed just as it is or feel free to add different toppings like sliced fresh berries, sugar free lemon curd,  sugar free cinnamon blueberry sauce or maybe just a dollop of sugar free whipped cream.

These sugar free cheesecake bars are low carb dessert topped with a decadent maple pecan topping #cheesecake #keto #lowcarb #dessert #sugarfree | www.thefoodieaffair.com

Not included in the macronutrient calculations is the maple pecan topping.

Adjustments I made to the original Pecan Maple Syrup recipe includes reducing the water to 1/4 cup, replacing corn starch with arrow root and increasing the pecans to 3/4 cup.  Important NOTE:  Once syrup has cooled, the sweetener will harden.  Serve right away or reheat to liquify again.
