This Healthy Caramel Apple Cheesecake recipe is the perfect apple dessert for any occasion! It’s full of cinnamon, apples, homemade caramel sauce and is absolutely delicious! This recipe can be lactose free, is low carb, gluten free, and has zero added sugar. I mean, need I say more? This was one of the desserts that I made for my family for Thanksgiving this year, and let tell you - it was a HIT. This recipe is a serious crowd pleaser and both child and adult approved! I do also highly suggest you make my healthy homemade caramel sauce first to use for this cheesecake, but you can also use a store bought caramel sauce if time is an issue. I had my Caramel Sauce on hand and needed to do something with it and then it just hit me.... cheesecake! Well, actually my first thought was caramel apples, which I will still make at some point but I needed a crowd pleasing dessert for the Holidays so that is when a caramel apple cheesecake hit me! Of course, I got to work straight away in the kitchen.

This Healthy Caramel Apple Cheesecake recipe is just the bomb.com and I am going to tell you why! Each slice comes in at only 300 calories, six whole grams of protein to help you reach your goals, ONLY eight grams of net carbs, and five grams of naturally occurring sugar from the apples! I mean.... C'MON! How does it get any better than that?! It doesn't. This recipe is perfect to keep in the fridge for your own enjoyment, it is amazing for sharing, and just perfect for any holiday get together.

This year for Thanksgiving I was in charge of desserts (obviously), so of course I had to have multiple delicious and homemade options. I made this Caramel Apple Cheesecake, I made a Pumpkin Pie, and just in case some people wanted a lighter option I also made triple chocolate cookies - look out for that recipe coming up soon! If the link is working, then the recipe is already up - woohoo! All healthier and more nutrient dense recipes, of course, just the way I like it!

Let me know how your Thanksgiving was this year (in Canada), or what desserts you will be making for Thanksgiving - I sure hope you make one of the recipes I made for Thanksgiving because they were serious crowd pleasers and there was something for everyone!

Ingredients

Crust:

  • 3/4 cup gluten free rolled oats
  • 3/4 cup raw almonds
  • 2 tbs stevia or monk fruit
  • 1/4 cup melted coconut oil

Cheesecake:

  • 2 medium apples, peeled and sliced
  • Caramel Sauce (about 1 cup - or as desired)
  • 24 oz cream cheese (I used lactose free), room temperature.
  • 1 cup stevia or monk fruit
  • 2/3 cup sugar free greek yogurt (I used lactose free)
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 3 large eggs, room temperature

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 325 degrees F and spray a 9 inch springform pan with non stick spray and set aside. If you are using homemade sugar free caramel, prepare your recipe here.
  2. Using a food processor, process your oats, almonds, and sweetener of choice until fine. Add in your melted coconut oil and process again until mixed. Spread crust evenly in your prepared pan.
  3. Using one of your sliced apples, evenly spread your sliced apples over your crust, covering the entire bottom. Pour about 1/2 cup of caramel over top of apples, should be enough to cover you apples. This is easier if your caramel is warm. Set aside.
  4. In the bowl of a stand mixer, or large bowl with a hand mixer, whisk your cream cheese until smooth, add in your sweetener and continue to cream together until smooth. Add in your greek yogurt, vanilla extract, salt, and cinnamon. Mix until smooth. Add in your eggs one at a time, mixing each egg until JUST combined.
  5. Pour your cheesecake batter over top of your apples that are covered in caramel and bake for 75 minutes, your edges should start to brown and the middle should be slightly jiggly. You may need to place a baking sheet under your springform pan in the oven - just in case some caramel oozes out.
  6. Once out of the oven, allow your cheesecake to cool for at least 10 minutes and then run a butter knife around the edges to prevent from cracking. But don't worry if it does crack, because it will be covered with more apple slices!
  7. Allow your cheesecake to cool for about 2 hours at room temperature, until completely cool and place in your fridge for at least another 2 hours. When you are ready to serve, top with thinly sliced apples and more caramel sauce and enjoy!
