Ingredients

The crust:

  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa powder,

  • 3 tablespoons melted butter

For the filling:

  • 16 oz cream cheese, room temperature
  • ½ cup peanut butter

  • Pinch of salt

For the topping:

  • ½ cup sugar-free milk chocolate chips

Instructions

To make the crust:

  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. With non-stick spray, spray standard-size muffin tin or line the tin with paper.
  2. Into a mixing bowl, add all of the ingredients for the crust and stir well with a fork until it gets combined.
  3. Between the muffin wells, spoon the mixture evenly and press flat.

Make the cheesecake:

  1. Until it gets smooth and creamy, beat together the cream cheese, peanut butter, and sweetener.
  2. One at a time, beat in the eggs until it gets just combined. Do not overmix.
  3. To the mixture, add salt, vanilla, and sour cream and mix until it gets just combined.
  4. Between the TWELVE muffin wells, pour the batter evenly. To get evenly-sized portions every time, use a large cookie scoop.
  5. Until just slightly jiggly in the center, bake for TWENTY FIVE minutes.
  6. On the counter, cool completely before topping.

To make the topping:

  1. To a microwave-safe bowl, add the peanut butter and chocolate chips and heat until it gets melted, stirring every TWENTY seconds.
  2. Over the cooled cheesecakes, spoon the melted chocolate evenly.
  3. For FOUR hours before serving, place the cheesecakes in the refrigerator.
