Keto Cheesecake Brownies

My favourite recipes are the ones where I combine two of my favourite things. Cheesecake and brownies was one I wanted to attempt for a while and I’m SO glad I did.

These are some epic Keto Cheesecake Brownies.

A rich sugar free brownie base that’s made extra fudgey using some melted stevia-sweetened chocolate-chips.. A silky cream cheese middle that’s just the right amount of tangy and sweet along with extra brownie crumbles on top because you can never have too much chocolate.

These are the type of fudge brownies your dream of. Dense, chewy, soft, not dry or crumbly at all!

Keto Cheesecake Brownies Ingredients

Almond Flour – I use the Kirkland Costco brand of almond flour (I buy it in bulk on Amazon or at Costco itself occasionally) for this recipe. As I’ve noted in many of my past recipes, the brand of almond flour can affect the final outcome of the recipe because absorbency can vary depending on how the flour has been processed.

Cocoa Powder – I use the Rodelle brand again from Costco. I find it to taste better than other brands!

Xanthan gum This is used to create a batter more similar to that of white flour. It helps give the brownies a chewier texture.

–Cornstarch – This is completely optional. Cornstarch makes your brownies a bit more soft and silky. It does have 7g of carbs in a tablespoon but when spread throughout a recipe like this one it adds less than 1g of carbs to each brownie. If you leave it out, be sure to replace it with 2 extra tablespoons of almond flour.

– Powdered Monkfruit Erythritol Sweetener  –   I use the SoNourished brand for both granular and powdered sweetener and love it! The powdered is the best option for no-bake goods and desserts where you want a very smooth final product. I used the powdered in this recipe as sometimes the granular can remain a tad “crunchy” in slightly undercooked/fudgier brownie recipes such as this one.

– I use Krisda chocolate-chips in this recipe as they are just 2 NET carbs per tbsp.. but you can also use dark chocolate or lily’s chocolate-chips.

Tools I used to make Keto Cheesecake Brownies

Low Carb Substitution Guide – This is totally optional but if you like my recipes, I now have a $5 guide available with all of the substitutions I use to create every recipe on my site. You can use this to convert old traditional recipes and create new keto recipes! You can purchase it here and/or read more if you are interested. 🙂 I appreciate your support so much guys!

– Nutritional Food Scale – AKA my best friend. This little buddy has been with me for over 4 years and never fails. Perfect measurements and only needs the batteries replaced maybe once a year!

Keto Cheesecake Brownies Tips

– When cooling your cheesecake brownies, I recommend letting them sit in the oven with the door open once you are done cooking them just to make sure they set-up fully. Then freeze them until solid! Don’t try to rush this progress or you’ll end up with mush. LOL.

– I added additional whole chocolate-chips to the batter. This is optional but if you do add them, I’d recommend waiting until your batter has cooled a bit or else the melted chocolate you added earlier may melt this chocolate-chips as well.
