Keto Cheesy Pina Colada Cupcakes Recipe

These piña colada cheesecake cupcakes have a crumbly coconut flour crust, a pineapple infused cream cheese filling, and coconut flake topping. OMG!!! Unbelievably, my low carb cheesecake cupcakes are also sugar-free, gluten-free, and made with just nine different ingredients!

How To Make Keto Cheesecake Cupcakes

These low carb cheesecake cupcakes come together surprisingly quickly – just 10 minutes to prep!

  • Make the crusts for keto mini cheesecakes. Mix together coconut flour, melted coconut oil, egg, erythritol, and a pinch of sea salt, until crumbly.
  • Press into muffin liners. Gently press the crust into muffin liner.
  • Blend together pineapple cheesecake filling. Blend cream cheese, pineapple chunks, egg, erythritol, vanilla, and coconut extract together until smooth.

NOTE: Even though these cheesecake cupcakes contain pineapple, they still have only 5 grams net carbs each. However, if you want to avoid this higher sugar fruit even in small amounts, you can replace it with 1 tsp pineapple extract + 1/4 cup sour cream.

  • Pour filling into mini keto cheesecake cupcakes. Top with coconut flakes.
  • Bake piña colada cheesecakes. The cheesecake cupcakes will take about 15 minutes, until the coconut is golden but the cupcakes are not fully set.

When Are Cheesecake Cupcakes Done?

The best way to tell when this keto cheesecake cupcake recipe is done is to jiggle the pan a bit. If the pineapple cheesecakes look mostly set and then the small center jiggles slightly, that’s what you’re looking for.

Do not wait for the center to be set, or they’ll be dry and crumbly!

How To Store Keto Mini Cheesecakes

Cover your keto mini cheesecakes loosely with plastic wrap or tin foil, and store in the refrigerator for up to a week.
