Red Velvet Cookie Cheesecakes (Keto & Gluten Free)

Inspired by Valentine's Day these cookie cheesecakes are just perfect for the occasion, a beautiful red velvet recipe! Easy, no bake and delicious using some of my favorite things ever; cookies, cream cheese and pecans, who wants some of this?


Well, we are keeping it super easy with this recipe and flavorful. Organic cream cheese to make sure we are getting those nutrients, plus is always important to check those ingredients because some cream cheese may contain fillers and unnecessary ingredients.



When it comes to nutrition getting nutrient dense and real foods is essential and little changes can make the difference. From getting organic products to changing to monk fruit instead of cane sugar.



For this recipe I'm using granulated monk fruit (use discount code PURELYHL for discount) instead of sugar. An ingredient I have been using for years now and I love it because it's easy to use and it doesn't leave a weird aftertaste.



For the toppings I used some of Heka Good Foods Keto Cookies (discount code purelyhealthyliving) cut into little pieces to add the cookie flavor, texture and keep the recipe low carb since these cookies are Keto Certified! That means that they have been tested to keep you into ketosis and that they are made with real ingredients.



To add a little of an extra crunch I added some candied pecans from MariGold Bars, simply amazing and a game changer when it comes to using nuts in recipes. You can use regular pecans or make your own! These are keto and ready to use though.



To add that red velvet color I simply used some of Organifi Red Juice powder, that it has beets to give that boost of color and energy. I really like it overall because it also taste delicious, it's organic and it blends well in recipes (you can use discount code PURELYHL).



As you can see I really used some of my favorite ingredients here! And they work perfectly into these fun Red Velvet Cookie Cheesecakes, perfect for this Valentine's Day or any occasion really!

Oh yes! I almost forgot about the protein. Yes, I used protein powder to add some protein, flavor and volume to this recipe. Also is a great hack to create a creamy and denser consistency for these little cheesecakes. I used Nuzest Vanilla one, it's also low carb and made with simple ingredients.
