Mama’s Best Peanut Butter Cheesecake

Mama's Best Peanut Butter Cheesecake (low carb, THM S) is a great way to indulge and impress your guests.

This Peanut Butter Cheesecake is one of my favorite indulgences. It is rich, sweet and just a bit salty making it the perfect dessert to serve your family and friends.

It has a wonderful cookie style crust is sugar free and a creamy filling that is made from surprising ingredients. Mama’s Best Peanut Butter Cheesecake has healthy ingredients that don’t spike your blood sugar. I love making this as mini cheesecakes so that I can freeze three while we enjoy the other. We are a family of 2 so being able to freeze extras helps me stay on plan with my Trim Healthy Mama Journey and keep on plan foods in my freezer.

 

The Pans I use to Bake Mama’s Best Peanut Butter Cheesecake

I made these using these mini cheesecake pans from Wilton. I really like these pans with our smaller family size because I can make individual cakes and treats like this and freeze the rest if needed. 2 of them fit on my trivet in my Instant pot and they can also be used in the oven.

Two Ways to Cook Mama’s Best Peanut Butter Cheesecake

I am finding that I love making cheesecake in my Instant Pot, it’s so quick and easy. I have included both directions for making this Peanut Butter Cheesecake in the Instant Pot and in the oven.

Oven Baked:

Pre heat oven to 350 degrees Place sealed spring form pan into a 13 x9 or appropriate sized pan and add 1-2 inches of boiling water.

Instant Pot:

Add 2 cups of water to the pressure cooker and then place the rack on the bottom. Set your Instant Pot to max pressure for 25 minutes (Manual/high).

Allow to cook, shut your Instant Pot Off and use Natural Pressure Release for 12-16 minutes. If the pin has not dropped then Quick Pressure Release.

Unlock the lid and using the sling transfer pan to cooling rack for one hour. Unfasten, loosen and remove the collar of the cake pan. Let cake come to room temperature and then chill in the fridge overnight or a minimum of 4 hours before serving.

To make a sling for lifting a larger cheesecake pan from the Instant Pot:

You want two pieces of aluminum foil that are two feet long stacked on top of each other. Fold in half lengthwise so you now have a long sling that is four layers thick. I folded all my edges over so that they would stay together.
