  • cups Bob's Red Mill coconut flour
  • tsp Keto & Co. shortbread cookie mix divided
  • ½ packet Simply Delish Strawberry Jel
  • ¼ tsp Now Foods psyllium husk powder
  • 1 egg yolk
  • tbsp egg whites
  • ¼ cup apple sauce
  • 1 tbsp Greek yogurt

Cookie Filling

  • 2 oz cream cheese
  • ½ tbsp Keto & Co. shortbread cookie mix
  • 1 egg white


  • Mix dry ingredients for the cookies and then add the wet ingredients. The dough should be moist but not sticky.
  • Whisk together cheesecake filling ingredients. This mixture should be slightly runny but not too liquidy. Take a big spoonful of dough and place on your baking sheet lined with parchment. Flatten slightly and make a divot in the middle.
  • Spoon approximately 2 tsp of the cheesecake filling into the divot. Take a smaller piece of dough, flatten it enough to cover the diameter of the other half, gently place atop cheesecake filling and seal the top/bottom cookie dough edges.
  • Repeat 3x and bake at 350 Fahrenheit for 14-16 minutes or until the tops feel set to the touch. Then turn off the oven and leave inside until firm to the touch, approximately 5 minutes.
  • For the extra cheesecake filling, pour the mixture into a silicone muffin liner and air fry at 250 degrees Fahrenheit for 20 minutes to make a mini cheesecake.
