Ingredients for Keto Cheesecake Brownies

To make these cream cheese keto brownies you’ll need just a few ingredients that are super common and easy to find. Just gather all the ingredients and enjoy a decadent low carb brownie recipe.

  • Almond Flour– Use superfine, balanced almond flour for the best texture. Almond meal won’t work.
  • Eggs– I always use large eggs at room temperature to reduce the eggy taste.
  • Unsalted Butter – High-Quality Butter is very important.
  • Dark Chocolate– Unsweetened chocolate is the best.
  • Cocoa Powder– I recommend using a Dutch-processed cocoa powder, but make sure to sift it to get rid of the bigger lumps.
  • Powdered Sweetener– Using powdered sweeteners while baking makes a huge difference in taste and texture.
  • Vanilla Extract– amplifies the chocolate taste. Additionally, you can use a teaspoon of instant coffee.
  • Baking Powder– helps these low carb brownies become super fluffy.
  • Cream Cheese – Use full fat if you want that extra creaminess of a delicious cheesecake

How to Make Keto Cheesecake Brownies

These low carb keto Cheesecake Brownies are super easy to make from scratch. You’ll need to make a fudgy keto brownies layer and a batch of our delicious cheesecake layer.

  1. To make the cheesecake layer combine the cream cheese, sweetener, egg, and vanilla extract until the mixture is smooth. It’s best to use room temperature ingredients and an electric mixer to be sure your cheesecake is perfectly smooth.
  2. The brownies layer needs a little bit more work but it’s definitely worth it. Start by shifting the dry ingredients. Combine it with the beaten eggs, melted chocolate, and unsalted butter until it looks smooth and delicious.

Tips for Perfect Low Carb Cheesecake Brownies

  1. Make sure you DON’T OVER BAKE the keto cheesecake brownies. This is one of the most important steps you have to follow if you don’t want to want up with a dry and gritty dessert. That’s the secret to perfectly rich and fudgy cheesecake brownies.
  2. Use Powdered Erythritol for the best results. Xylitol is a great keto sweetener to use too but you’ll have to reduce the cooking time by at least 5 minutes.
  3.  Use eggs at room temperature, so you’ll get a nice batter that’s not too thick.

What Pan To Use for Keto Brownies?

These brownies work best in an 8×8 inch baking pan, but a 9×9 inch pan works well too. I’ve found that a 7×11 pan makes them way thinner than I want them to be.

How to Store Cheesecake Keto Brownies

  • Fridge– Leftover keto cheesecake brownies can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
  • Freezer– To freeze, individually wrap cheesecake keto brownies and store them in the freezer for up to 3 months. When ready to serve, defrost at room temperature and then reheat for a few seconds in the microwave.

Instructions
 

Make the Keto Brownie Layer

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F/ 175°C and line an 8×8 inch baking pan with parchment paper.
  • Sift all the dry ingredients before using. This step will make any low carb recipe less grainy and gritty.
  • Add in a medium bowl the butter and dark chocolate. Microwave for about 30 seconds or until completely melted.
  • Add the almond flour, cocoa powder, erythritol, baking powder, and stir to combine.
  • In a large mixing bowl, crack the eggs and beat with an electric mixer for about 60 seconds. Pour in the butter and chocolate mixture and continue mixing for another minute.
  • Incorporate the dry ingredients with the wet ones until you get a creamy keto brownie butter that’s not very thick.
  • Transfer the brownie batter to the prepared pan and set aside.

Make the Keto Cheesecake Layer

  • Add the cream cheese and powdered erythritol to a clean bowl and cream with an electric mixer until fluffy and smooth. Add the egg and vanilla extract and mix until well incorporated.
  • Add the cheesecake cream over the brownie mixture in 6 dollops and swirl using a knife or a toothpick.
  • Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until the center is set but still jiggly. Keep an eye on the keto brownies cheesecake from the minute 15 as not ovens are the same. Let it cool down completely on a cooling rack.
  • Cut into 16 squares and serve.
