I am in love with these brownies. They taste divine, and are good for you too! All of the ingredients are incredibly easy to find…none of those weird sugar substitutes that you see in most low carbohydrate recipes! The texture is more like that of cheesecake, so be sure to let them cool completely before you try to remove them from the pan.
8 oz. Cream Cheese, softened
1/2 tsp. Vanilla
2 tsp. Powdered Stevia
1 c. Almond Meal
5 Tb. Cocoa Powder
2 1/2 T. Powdered Stevia
6 Tb. Butter, melted
2 tsp. Vanilla
1/2 c. Greek Yogurt or Sour Cream
2 Eggs, beaten
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Butter and dust an 8 x 8 baking dish with cocoa powder.
Melt the butter over low heat.
Mix the cheesecake ingredients in a glass bowl with a hand mixer until smooth. Set aside.
In a large bowl, mix the Almond Meal, Cocoa, and Powdered Stevia. Use a fork or whisk to break up any lumps.
Mix in the melted Butter.
Mix in the Vanilla, Yogurt/Sour Cream, and eggs.
Pour brownie batter into the prepared pan.
Pour the cheesecake filling on top, and mix the two batters with a butter knife to form “swirls.” Be sure to mix them together well.
Bake for 30-35 minutes, until center is set and a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
Cool for at least fifteen minutes before serving.
Store any leftovers in the refrigerator for up to one week.
