Salted Dark Chocolate Cheesecake (Keto + Low Carb)

This incredible Salted Keto Chocolate Cheesecake has three rich chocolate layers! It makes the perfect keto dessert at under 3 net carbs per bite!

I know we are all dealing with the stress and anxiety of our current situation in different ways. I have spent a lot of time getting my garden ready for summer and the fresh air and sunshine has been therapeutic. However, I am also finding joy in baking.

It has actually been really nice to be able to create a recipe that I usually might pass over because it is time consuming. I am finding the extra time in the kitchen comforting instead of just one more thing to add to my to do list.

So I wanted to share a really delicious keto dessert that might bring you a little comfort too. These low-carb cheesecake bites are too good to pass up!
