Cheesecake Brownie (Almond Flour)

Cheesecake and brownie!  Together at last!   A yummy low carb, gluten free brownie topped with cheesecake and baked.

Brownie topped with cheesecake!

 This is just delicious!  I had been thinking about this recipe and toyed with the idea of doing this in individual muffin form, but then went for the one tray option.   I have not ruled out the muffin version though and will do that another lazy weekend.   

Gooey goodness!

 

The Chief Taster was beside himself with joy whilst this was baking and I had to hold him off whilst it was cooling.   It is delicious once cooled, but better a day later, as the brownie is a touch more moist.  Delicious either way.  This is a great brownie recipe too, if you wanted to skip the cheesecake topping….

A tin of heaven!

I made a vanilla and chocolate swirl with the cheesecake topping but you could play around with the flavours if you so wished.   Oooh, Bailey’s if you are feeling wicked..  Or simple have a delicious vanilla cheesecake.     Or top with some berries.   Or added cream.  Oh dear, just feel full thinking about it!   So many possibilities of deliciousness!

    I forgot to ask, what kind of chocolate, semi sweet, or unsweetened? Can’t wait to make these, the brownie base, is a keeper too. Thanks

      I use 70% cocoa solids chocolate, but it’s a matter of personal taste really. Hope you enjoy them!

      No, it’s just the one cup of ground almonds/almond flour (they are the same thing really)

      Hi Mindy, I’ve referred to the almond flour as ground almonds as it’s the same thing (and what I was currently purchasing from my supermarket). Hope you enjoy the recipe and thanks for popping by!

    I would like to try this, but I need help. Two of the ingredients are given in grams. What would that be in cups, spoonfuls, squares of chocolate, etc.?

      Hi Connie, the reason the chocolate is in grams is because it’s weight rather than volume. A rough guide would be 50g = 1/4 cup (just under) and 75g = 1/3 cup. Hope you enjoy the recipe!

      Not an exact amount, as I am never comfortable with issuing the carb counts as I am not a qualified Nutritionist. I am now studying to be one, and will have busy few weeks updating all my recipes with the exact details!
