Crock Pot Cheesecake

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.

Crock Pot Cheesecake?

I know, I know, the idea of making cheesecake in a slow cooker is a little odd. I was skeptical too, but was amazed at how well this recipe turned out. I figured if you can make meatloaf in a slow cooker, and chai tea lattes in a slow cooker, why not give cheesecake a try.

This recipe has especially been helpful on Thanksgiving and busy holidays when my oven is already running at capacity with other dishes and I don’t have the time or space to make any desserts in the oven! As a bonus, this recipe is 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!

Crock Pot Cheesecake




Yield 6

An easy cheesecake in the crock pot!


  • 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 1/2 cup honey or pure cane sugar)
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 4 Tablespoons heavy cream
  • 1 Tablespoon coconut flour


  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 1 1/2 quart oval corning ware 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!
