You can’t beat chocolate. Until it is combined with cream cheese. In a keto cheesecake brownies recipe. That sentence just kept on getting better, didn’t it?

Chocolate is always a privilege. There is nothing better than a chocolate flavored dessert, but it’s even better when it’s low-carb. So, let’s try and make this incomparable delight.

For the brownie layer, you will need unsweetened cocoa powder, baking powder, eggs, heavy cream, butter, vanilla extract, erythritol and a pinch of salt. 

This is a healthy upgrade to the usual brownie base, which include white flour and table sugar. Our sugar levels spike just thinking about these ingredients!

Additionally, my healthy sugar-free cheesecake brownies provide a good source of  polyphenols, fiber, dietary magnesium, B vitamins, and protein. 

But the most important fact is that this dessert can make you happy. Don’t believe us? Research shows that cocoa stimulates our brain to release hormones known as endorphins, which trigger our brain’s “reward system” and promotes a feeling of positivity (1).

Chocolate is also one of the best sources of antioxidants, which helps reduce inflammation as well as the risk of many diseases. For more information about keto-friendly chocolate, check our guide here.

Nest, we move on to the cheesecake layer. You will need cream cheese, sour cream, lemon zest. These add some more nutrients.

For example, dairy products contain calcium for your strong bones and cellular communication. Lemon provides vitamin C to make your immune system strong. These foods will add delicious flavor, too.

Even in small amounts, lemon has a big impact on your health. In addition to boosting your immune system, lemon has also been shown to reduce blood pressure (2). 

When you’ve combined both layers, drizzle a little bit of melted chocolate on top and serve. This makes a great dessert to bring to your next holiday party!

How to Make Low Carb Cheesecake Brownies

To make this gluten free brownie cheesecake, prepare the brownie layer by combining the cocoa powder and sweetener. Set aside. 

In a separate bowl, beat the eggs and add to the sweetener/cocoa powder mixture. Add melted butter, baking powder, salt, vanilla, and cream. Mix all ingredients until you get a consistent brownie batter. 

I do not use almond flour or coconut flour in this recipe. However, you can add it in the crust for extra flavor, texture and taste.

Pour the brownie mixture into the bottom of pan and bake for about 10-15 minutes.

Prepare the cheesecake filling by mixing together softened cream cheese, eggs, sour cream, melted butter, lemon zest, and sweetener. I prefer using erythritol in this brownie recipe, but you can also try stevia or monk fruit.
