Ingredients

Brownie batter

Cheesecake batter

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350 F / 180 C / 160 fan. Line a 28 x 19 x 3.5cm baking tray with greaseproof paper.

Brownie Batter

  • Add all the dry ingredients to a mixing bowl and mix well with a fork or spatula.
  • Add the wet ingredients and stir together using a fork or spatula. Last, stir in the chocolate chips.

Cheesecake batter

  • Place the cream cheese, erythritol, egg and vanilla into a mixing bowl and blend with an electric mixer until combined.

Assembly

  • Add dollops of brownie batter to your prepared baking tin. Save about 4 tbsp. Don’t spread.
  • Spoon the cheesecake batter into the gaps and gently shake the pan to self level. Add the 4 tbsp of reserved batter to the top of a 4 cheesecake dollops. Using a toothpick swirl the batters together. Don’t be tempted to over swirl.
  • Bake in the centre of the oven for about 20 - 25 minutes until the edges are cooked but the centre is still a little jiggly and just before the cheesecake batter browns. My oven was about 24 minutes.
  • The brownies with firm up as they cool so don’t be tempted to over-bake. Remove from the oven and allow to fully cool to firm up before slicing. Placing in the fridge, once cooled, will also firm them up a bit more.

Notes

Hands on: 15 minutes
Overall cooking time: 40 minutes
Makes 16 slices. Net carbs per slice: 2.8 g 
Storage: Airtight tupperware in the fridge for up to 4 days or freezer up to 3 months
I used regular almond flour / ground almonds. If you're using extra-fine almond flour, reduce the amount by 2 tbsp as it's more absorbent. 
***3 medium eggs worked well in my brownie batter. If your eggs are very large, 2 eggs should suffice.  
You can make your own powdered sweetener by simply blitzing some granulated in the food processor!
