How to Make Low Carb Chocolate Cheesecake Brownies
Mix until smooth. Pour into an 8×8″ square tin lined with parchment paper.
Either clean out the stand mixer bowl, or use a hand mixer for the cheesecake layer. Actually I know people who have TWO bowls for their stand mixer – I think I'll be adding another one to my wish list! Whisk together some cream cheese, granular sweetener, another egg and some vanilla extract.
Spoon the mixture on top of the chocolate brownie layer. Use a skewer, knife or toothpick to gently swirl the layers together.
Bake in a preheated oven for around 25 minutes or until the cheesecake topping is firm. Transfer the brownies to a cooling rack and let cool, then cut into 16 squares.
