Crock Pot Cheesecake

pumpkincheesecake Crock Pot Cheesecake

This is probably my favorite crock-pot experiment so far. I decided to try it when someone posted a recipe on Pinterest, but the link was broken so I had to try to figure it out myself.

This recipe is actually easier than cooking in the oven (unless you are making a really big cheesecake). If you are a cheesecake person, give this one a try!

An easy cheesecake in the crock pot!
Author:
Recipe type: Dessert
Serves: 6
Ingredients
  • Crust:
  • 1 cup of toasted almonds (unsalted) or pecans ground to a meal in a blender or food processor
  • 2 TBSP coconut oil (or butter)
  • 1 egg
  • stevia to taste (optional)
  • Filling:
  • 2 packages of cream cheese (16 ounces total)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp stevia or powdered stevia leaf (can also use up to ½ cup honey or pure cane sugar)
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 4 Tablespoons heavy cream
  • 1 Tablespoon coconut flour
Instructions
  1. Mix toasted almonds/pecans with coconut oil, egg and stevia (if using) and press into bottom of a pan that will fit in the bottom of your crock pot with a little room on each side. I used a 1½ quart oval corningware in my 6 quart oval crock pot and it worked great, though even a bowl or round cake pan (or loaf pan) could work depending on your crock pot.
  2. Mix filling ingredients and blend well with blender or immersion blender. Taste to make sure it is sweetened to taste.
  3. Pour over crust in your dish.
  4. Put about 1 cup of water in the bottom of your crock pot.
  5. Slowly and carefully place the dish with the cheesecake into the crock pot, making sure not to get water in it. Put lid on.
  6. Turn crock pot on high and cook about 2 hours (check every hour or so to make sure there is still water in it).
  7. Done when middle is set and top barely starts to crack.
  8. Turn off heat and leave in crock pot until cooled.
  9. Chill in fridge for a few hours before serving.
  10. Enjoy!

Serving Suggestions:

  • Melt dark chocolate and drizzle on top before chilling
  • Slice strawberries and serve on top
  • Make a pumpkin version for the Fall!

    I have a recipe question.  You recipe calls for two packages or 24 ounces.  I think I’ve only seen cream cheese in 8 oz packages, so two packages would be 16 ounces.  Just looking for clarification because I’d really like to try this and get it right.  Thank you.

      Oops… thanks! Correcting that now. Adapted this from another recipe I am working on and forgot to change that. It is 2 packages! (Though you could use three, just add an extra egg)

    On my way to making it.  If this comes out, my son is going to be SSOOOOOOOO happy (not to mention my hubby).  Love that it has stevia in it.  
    Thanks for posting

    Oh.My.Goodness. This is absolutely amazing!!! I used honey as the sweetner and my thanksgiving guests were raving about it!! I had everything at thanksgiving grain-free and no one knew the difference. In fact, they thought it was even better than the “real” thing. Thanks Katie!!!

  4. says

    Is it possible to use a grain free flour mixture to create the crust?  Or do you have a nut free crust recipe I could use instead?  I want to make this for a dinner party, but I have a friend who is allergic to nuts!

    FYI I have made this twice now and its very very good. I didn’t want to make in in the crockpot because I needed it to cook quicker. So I baked it in the over at 350 for an hour then chilled in the fridge over night. perfection. Thought I’d throw that out there for anyone else that would rather bake it!

    In my quest to find sugar free and flour free recipes, I have to COMMEND you for coming up with recipe!!! I CAN’T WAIT TO MAKE IT!!!!! For those of you who are sugar and flour free, be sure to check your “artificial sweeteners”! It doesn’t matter the “kind”, but the “brand”….ex: Truvia uses a sugar alcohol while Stevia in the Raw uses maltodextrin-a “corn sugar”….but both use the stevia plant! As for Coconut flour, it is VERY low in carbs, and HIGH in protein! LOVE that it’s the “flour” to make this! I think my dr might make an exception for this recipe (although he wouldn’t like that it was cheesecake! Hahahahaha!!! : )

    Hello! i am very excited to have discovered this. I am wondering if you by chance posted the pumpkin version that you mentioned was coming soon? Thank you so much!
