Step 1: The Ingredients

Splenda Cheescake


2 tablespoons Splenda sugar subsitute
2-3 tablespoons melted butter
1.5 cups graham cracker crumbs
Optional - cinnamon. I sometimes add this to the crust for a background flavor


1 pound cream cheese, softened
1 cup Splenda
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 eggs
2 cups sour cream

Step 2: The Oven

Preheat oven to 375*

Step 3: The Crust

In a small bowl combine Splenda, butter, and graham cracker crumbs. Use a fork or your fingers to mix ingredients together and sprinkle evenly over the bottom of a 9-inch springform pan and press the crumbs down lightly. Place into pre-heated oven for 10 minutes.

Step 4: The Filling

In a medium bowl (or mixer bowl) put cream cheese, Splenda, and vanilla. Beat until it's fluffy and free of lumps. Add the eggs, one at a time, mixing until they just combine, add sour cream and mix until smooth. At this point you can add in any other ingredients (ie. Nuts, chocolate chips, etc...)

Step 5: The Cooking

Pour the batter into the springform pan with the prepared crust, place in pre-heated oven for 30-35 minutes. Refrigerate overnite before serving.

This cheescake will keep well in the freezer for about a month.

    65 grams carbs and 26 grams of sugar per cup of graham crackers. Not sugar free or diabetic friendly at all.

    Question 9 months ago on Introduction

    Does it have to be a springform pan? What would i need to change if i used a pyrex pie pan or even an 8 or 9 inch metal cake pan?

    I received a lot of compliment! Thank you for sharing this recipe! I also added dark chocolate chips to give a little more flavor.


    Question 1 year ago on Introduction

    I have two questions. Could I use Stevia instead of Splenda? Can I use a premade graham cracker crust instead of making my own?

    I’m not sure of the ratio of stevia for sugar, so the best I could say is try it and let us know. You could use the premade crust but I prefer making my own

    graham crackers have sugar, so it is not a sugar free dessert apt to diabetics!!!!

    Do you have any nutrition facts for this recipe such as carbohydrates, fats, sodium, protein etc.? I made it and everyone said it was very good. A lot lighter then the one I have been making.

    I don't know about all the ingredients, but plain ghraham crackers have 24 carbs per serving.

    I have tried making the crust with ground up almond flour, but it would require some adjusting. It has been a long time since I've tried this. First time came out well, second time (a lot later) did not. I'm wondering about a combination of graham crackers with the ground up almonds could work?

    made first one using Xyla instead of Splenda excellent.

    Making a second one today with Splenda. They looks the same however baking at 375* I added 10 extra minutes to bake time for each. Did anyone else have to make this adjustment.

    Make sure not to over mix this because it will cause it to crack..

    you can also use crushed sugar free cookies as a crust. I've used sugar free shortbread it made a wonderful crust.
