These Cookies and Cream Keto Bites are super delicious and easy to make! They taste like cheesecake + cookies and cream ice cream, but are done in a fraction of the time and don't need to be baked or churned!
Cookies and Cream Keto Bites
So a few weeks ago I made this low-carb instant pot keto cheesecake. It was so freaking good, I literally ate it all in 3 days.
If you're following a keto diet or not, you must try it...you won't regret it!
Since I didn't want to make the same exact recipe again, I decided to tweak it and make a more portable version of a cheesecake. I opted to combine one of my favorite ice cream flavors (cookies and cream) with my low carb cheesecake recipe, so it was a win-win situation.
Let me tell you, these Cookies and Cream Cheesecake Keto bites came out way better than I expected.
What is a Keto Bite?
If you're following a keto diet, you need to consume a lot of fat. Some people have a hard time getting in enough fat, or they're sweet-a-holics like me and would rather opt for a little less fat in a meal to make yummy high fat snack like these keto bites.
So basically a keto bite is a snack, usually made into balls, bites, or molds, that is very high in fat and low in protein and carbs. This allows a person to significantly increase their fat intake while minimally increasing their carbohydrate and protein intake. This helps people reach their ideal keto macros.
Prior to making the recipe I went on the search to 6 different stores until I found something that would act as the chocolate cookie part of the cookies and cream keto bites. I was in search of a keto chocolate cookie, but I couldn't find any. What I did find was something better!
I found these Quest Beyond Cereal Bars. They're made with allulose and a prebiotic fiber and have only 2g net carbs per serving!
I know this is a tangent from my cookies and cream cheesecake keto bite recipe, BUT I'm getting my motorcycle endorsement! Basically it's like a little stamp on your driver's license letting people know that you took and passed a motorcycle class. I was kinda bummed that I didn't get a separate license or card like a passport!
So on my way to take my motorcycle endorsement class today, I actually ate one of these quest cookies and cream bars on the car ride over along with my keto coffee (coffee + collagen peptides + heavy whipping cream).
The Chocolate Quest Bar was super tasty and convenient to have on hand, and I was surprised that it was not super hard like many other protein bars are! It made for the perfect keto breakfast!
How to make Keto Cookie Crumbles for the keto bite
To make the "cookies" part of this cookies and cream keto bite recipe, I took one to the Quest Nutrition Chocolate Cereal Protein Bars, and threw it into a food processor and ground it into small cookie like crumbs.
How to make Cookies and cream cheesecake keto bites
To make the keto bite portion of the recipe, it's actually very simple!
I threw all of the other ingredients (see below) into my ninja blender and combined them until smooth.
Next I scrapped out all of the keto bite batter into lined a dish with parchment paper and put it in the freezer for about 10 minutes. Then I scooped out some batter and made 1-1.5inch diameter balls and then rolled those balls into the cookie crumbs.
This recipe made a ton! I'm not sure on the exact amount, because I was eating the batter as I was making it LOL and I ended up keeping a big portion in the bowl which is in the freezer still.
I'm thinking about mixing the leftover crumbs and batter together and freezing it into ice cream and them scooping it out and eating it that way! The opportunities are endless with these 2 great combos!
If you want to make these into keto cookies with cream cheese instead of balls, I would flatten them with a spatula.

Store in the fridge for up to 5 days in an airtight container, or store in the freezer for up to 3 months.
