These no bake keto almond joy cheesecake squares are a delicious cheesecake version of the coconut chocolate bars.

I’ve made the base for this no bake cheesecake chocolate in flavour to imitate the chocolate bar flavour of chocolate and coconut. The coconut cheesecake filling is then topped with a chocolate ganache with an almond on each square. The idea was to surround the coconut cheesecake with a chocolate flavour.

To me, Almond Joys are a Bounty bar with an almond on the top. Both delicious and very tempting. I have a low carb version of a Bounty bar, so thought I’d do a spin on the flavours of an Almond Joy for this easy low carb dessert recipe.

I found this such an easy no bake cheesecake to make and it can be made ahead of serving. I kept it in the fridge overnight and we enjoyed a square for breakfast! The upside of taste testing and trying to take photographs before the sun disappeared! These delicious squares were a creamy combination of coconut and chocolate with a hint of almond. Remove the almond, replace the almond extract with coconut extract and you have a Bounty Cheesecake!

Keto Almond Joy Cheesecake Tips

These squares are rather large and it you wanted to reduce the net carbs, cut the cheesecake into smaller squares.

The topping is a chocolate ganache but could be replaced with a melted chocolate and coconut oil mixture.

Make sure you use a powdered low carb sugar substitute, especially in the base. As it is a no bake cheesecake, you will end up with a granular texture if not. If you can’t purchased powdered erythritol (or sugar substitute of your choice), run the granular through a coffee grinder or food processor.

This could be baked in a 8-inch springform cake tin if you wanted for a traditional circular cheesecake shape. Thinner slices would need an adjustment on the nutritional values.
