Ingredients

For Cheesecake Layer

  • 8 oz Cream Cheese
  • 50 g Erythritol Swerve
  • 1 Large Egg
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract

For Brownie Layer

  • 8 tbsp Butter, Unsalted
  • 140 g Erythritol Swerve
  • 80 g Cocoa Powder
  • 0.5 tsp Salt
  • 2 Large Eggs
  • 70 g Almond Flour

Instructions

  •  If your cream cheese is not already at room temperature, place it into a large microwave-safe bowl and microwave in 30 second increments until it is soft, stirring every 30 seconds. 
  •  Add 50 g swerve to the cream cheese and mix with a hand mixer until creamy.
  • Add 1 large egg and 1 tsp vanilla extract and mix with had mixer until well-incorporated; don’t over mix. Set aside
  • In a separate bowl, place the 8 Tbsp unsalted butter, 140 g swerve, 80 g cocoa powder, and 0.5 tsp salt. Microwave in 30 second increments until all the butter is melted and the swerve is dissolved, stirring after every 15-30 seconds to prevent cocoa or swerve from getting stuck on the bowel. Mix well with a hand mixer and` let cool slightly.
  •  While this mixture cools, spray a 9x9 baking dish with cooking spray and line with parchment paper.  
  • Add 2 large eggs, one at time, mixing with the hand mixer until just incorporated after each egg.
  •  Add 70 g almond flour and mix. This will thicken your dough.
  •  Spread 75% of the brownie batter into the pan with parchment paper. It will be very thick, but it will still cover the whole bottom if you patiently spread it with a spatula.
  • Next, spread the cream cheese mixture evenly over the brownie batter.
  • Divide the remaining brownie batter into 5 even dollops, and drop onto the cream cheese mixture. Use a toothpick to swirl it with the cream cheese.
  • Bake at 350°F(176°C) for about 30 minutes, until the cream cheese is set in the center but still jiggly, and the edges of the cheesecake layer are slightly browned.
  • While it is best served after being chilled in the refrigerator, it is fine served after minimal time to permit it to cool.
