Ingredients

Brownie Base

Cheesecake Layer

Instructions

  • Pre-heat oven to 350*F.
  • In a medium bowl, mix together your almond flour, cocoa powder, cornstarch, xanthan gum and salt. Set aside.
  • In another bowl, beat together your eggs, butter, vanilla and sweetener until smooth. Set aside.
  • In a large microwavable bowl, melt your chocolate-chips and coconut oil in 30s increments, stirring each time until smooth.
  • Pour your butter and egg mixture into the chocolate-chips and stir until well-incorporated and smooth.
  • Next stir in your dry ingredients and mix until a thick batter forms. Fold in your additional chocolate-chips and set aside.
  • For your cheesecake layer, combine all of the ingredients in a bowl and use a hand mixer and beat until smooth.
  • To assemble, line a 9x9 inch dish with lightly greased or oiled parchment paper.
  • Use a spatula or your hands to press ~2/3 of the brownie mixture into the bottom of the pan, forming an even layer.
  • Next pour your cream cheese mixture on top and make sure it covers the brownie bottom completely.
  • Using the leftover 1/3 of the brownie mixture, crumble it or drop blobs of batter on top of the cream cheese layer.
  • Bake for 35-40min or until cheesecake top is no longer jiggly and the brown is cooked through. (You can stick a toothpick in to check).
  • Turn the oven off and leave the Cream Cheese Brownies with the door open for 10-15min then remove and move to a wire rack for 10-15min before finally transferring to the freezer for ~4 hours or until SOLID before slicing into squares.
  • Serve cold or store in the fridge or freezer in an airtight container between layers of parchment paper for a future snack! Enjoy your Keto Cheesecake Brownie!

Notes

  • 3.4 is the NET carbs for 1 cheesecake brownie
  • When cooling your 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.
