Why Keto? Understanding the Buzz

Before we dive into the creamy, crunchy delight that is our Keto Cheesecake Cupcakes, let's talk about why keto has taken the world by storm.

The ketogenic diet, high in fats and low in carbs, switches your body into a state of ketosis, where it burns fat for energy instead of glucose. This switch can lead to significant weight loss, improved energy levels, and a host of other health benefits.

But the best part? You can still enjoy amazingly rich and satisfying desserts like the one we're about to make.

The Star Ingredient: Southern Recipe Small Batch Pork Rinds

You heard that right—pork rinds in a dessert! Our crust uses crushed Southern Recipe Small Batch Pork Rinds, offering an unbeatable crunch and a delicious twist on the traditional graham cracker base.

Specifically, we're recommending our Apple Cinnamon Pork Rinds for this recipe. But in all honesty, any sweet-tinged or unseasoned flavor will do the trick!

This secret ingredient not only keeps our cupcakes keto-friendly but also infuses them with a unique flavor that's bound to impress.

Crafting Your Cupcakes: A Step-by-Step Guide

This recipe isn't just about the end product; it's about enjoying the journey. From crushing pork rinds to the satisfying pour of the cheesecake filling, we'll walk you through each step, ensuring your culinary adventure is as fun as it is fruitful.


  • 1.25 cups keto powdered sugar substitute
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 eggs
  • 32 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • Optional: Fruit topping


  1. Conjure the Crust: Begin your culinary spell by tossing together the enchanted ingredients: the crushed Southern Recipe Small Batch Pork Rinds (the crunch of legends), a pinch of ground cloves, a whisper of cinnamon, and a generous dollop of melted butter. Mix until the potion is well combined and smells like a dream.
  2. Craft the Cupcake Thrones: With a flourish, press the pork rind mixture into the awaiting cupcake tins, which have been lined with magical barriers (cupcake liners) or greased with the elixir of the kitchen (more butter). Pat down gently to form the perfect thrones upon which our cheesecake royalty will sit.
  3. Chill the Thrones: Slide the tins into the royal chambers (your refrigerator) to chill, letting them firm up while you prepare the regal filling. This pause in the kitchen wizardry ensures a solid foundation for the creamy delights to come.
  4. Whip Up the Filling of Dreams: In a cauldron new (or just a clean bowl), whisk together the powdered sugar substitute (the sweetener of the enchanted), lemon juice (squeezed from the sunniest lemons), eggs (plucked from the bravest hens), and vanilla extract (the essence of exotic orchids). Mix until the spell begins to take shape.
  5. Summon the Cream Cheese: Introduce the softened cream cheese to your magical mix, and with a wizard's vigor, blend until the concoction is as smooth as a calm sea. This step requires a dash of elbow grease and a sprinkle of patience.
  6. Fill the Thrones: Retrieve your chilled cupcake thrones from their cold solitude and spoon the creamy filling into each cup, heaping it with the generosity of a king bestowing treasures upon his loyal subjects.
  7. The Final Enchantment: Return the filled cups to the refrigerator, transforming them into a sanctum of chill. Here, they must rest and set, becoming the Keto Cheesecake Cupcakes that legends speak of, for at least 30 magical minutes (or until firm to the touch). Wanna shake things up a little bit? Top with a fruit of your choice.
