NO-BAKE PEANUT BUTTER CHOCOLATE ZEBRA CHEESECAKE – Keto, Low Carb, Gluten Free, Sugar Free
Impress your family and friends with this No-Bake Peanut Butter Chocolate Zebra Cheesecake! This cheesecake is not just fun to look at, but also so creamy and scrumptious!
I have another zebra cake recipe (click the recipe name or image below for the recipe), but I wanted to make a no-bake zebra cake.
I was not sure what to do with the top of this zebra cheesecake. Should I pour chocolate glaze, dust with unsweetened cocoa powder, or what else…? And then I decided to drag lines to create a spider-web like pattern (I dragged too many lines though), because, you know, Halloween is coming soon. So, this cheesecake can be served as a Halloween treat! (However, I don’t really know what people in other countries usually eat on Halloween…)
Even if you cannot make beautiful concentric circles while transferring the batter, don’t worry. I found out that dragging lines on the top of the cake would solve the problem 😛 Just watch my YouTube video below. Mine doesn’t look good either! But I dragged lines anyway. Then, the top turned out beautiful! Also, even with not-so-good concentric circles, the zebra pattern should be there when sliced. When I was developing this recipe before the video shooting, the concentric circles looked worse than those in the YouTube video below, but when sliced the zebra pattern was beautifully created. This is another reason why I decided to drag lines on the top of the cake 😛 Yes, to cover the concentric circles that don’t look good… Anyway, just give your pan a shake every now and then to level the batter off 🙂
Speaking of “No-Bake”, my last “No-Bake” cake was controversial because the base was baked 😛 As a non-native English speaker, naming recipes is one of the most difficult things… Seriously, I want to ask those who said “It’s not no-bake” for a good name for that “No-Bake” Chocolate Cake of mine to attract people’s attention, for reference 😉 For the recipe of this controversial “No-Bake” Chocolate Cake, please click the image below:

- 1/2 tsp Stevia Powder
- A Pinch Salt
- 1 oz Melted Unsalted Butter (28 g)
- 1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract
- 1.5 oz Unsweetened Baking Chocolate, Chopped (42 g)

- 7 oz Cream Cheese, Room Temp (200 g)
- 1/2 cup Heavy Cream (120 cc)
- 2 tsp Vanilla Extract
- 2 to 3 tsp Stevia Powder (Adjust to your liking)
Line the bottom of a 6 inch (15 cm) removable bottom round cake pan with parchment paper. (You can line the sides too for easier removal.)
In a mixing bowl, whisk the almond flour, cocoa, stevia and salt.
Add the butter and vanilla. Stir until a soft dough forms.
Spread the dough into the prepared pan.
Bring the heavy cream to a simmer over low heat. Remove from the heat.
Add the unsweetened chocolate. Stir until melted and smooth.
Add the stevia and vanilla and mix well.
Peanut Butter Cheesecake
In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese with an electric mixer until smooth. Add the peanut butter and beat until combined.
In another bowl, beat the heavy cream, stevia powder and vanilla until soft peaks form.
Add the whipped cream to the cream cheese mixture. Beat until combined.
Transfer about 1/3 of the batter to a separate bowl and add the chocolate mixture. Beat until combined and smooth.
Transfer 1.5 tbsp of the white batter to the centre of the chocolate base and then 1.5 tbsp of the chocolate batter to the middle of the white batter. Repeat with the remaining batters until all the batter is gone, giving the pan a shake to level the batter off every now and then.
Take a toothpick and drag lines outwards from the centre to the edge of the cake.
Refrigerate overnight (or at least 4 hours).
Run a knife around the edge of the pan and remove the cake from the pan.
Slice and enjoy!
For treats, I always use SweetLeaf Stevia, which I believe doesn't have a bitter aftertaste.
