Instant Pot Recipes: Low Carb Peanut Butter Chocolate Cheesecake

Instant Pot Low Carb Peanut Butter Chocolate Cheesecake Recipe

Low carb can be hard when you’ve been addicted to sweets for what feels like forever. Luckily with my last pregnancy the severe sweet tooth I once suffered from dissipated a bit. But every once in a while I get a hankering for something chocolatey and smooth.

On Prime Day I jumped on the Instant Pot bandwagon. After receiving it the first thing I did was rush to join a few Instant Pot groups on Facebook for inspiration. And one thing I saw repeatedly when I was on the groups was how awesome the Instant Pot was at making cheesecake. Wait? Cheesecake? In a pressure cooker? Hmmm.

And while I’m not a huge cheesecake fan, I thought this would be a great way to satiate my need for a sweet treat every now and again. I was inspired by this recipe here but knew I wanted to put my own spin on things so I played around with the recipe a few times (in the name of science, of course) and perfected the peanut butter chocolate flavors. So good! And did I mention only 4 net carbs?
