Grain Free Brownie Cheesecake Bars

These are dangerously rich little desserts…you have been warned!  Note: I re-worked this recipe from its original form quite a bit…I feel like I also must say that I found these to be very dense…still VERY good…but maybe the recipe could use further “tweaking”.  Maybe my baking friends out there could give it a go…

What you will need:

-For the Brownie-

  • 8×8 pan
  • parchment paper
  • 6 eggs
  • 1.5 c of raw unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1.5 c of coconut sugar
  • 9 tbsp of Coconut oil (melted)
  • 6 tbsp Vanilla
  • 2 pinches of salt

-For the Cheesecake-

  • 8 oz Cream Cheese (room temp)
  • 1/3 c Heavy Cream
  • 1/3 c Greek yogurt
  • 1/3 cup + 2 tbsp coconut sugar
  • 2 eggs (room Temp)

How it’s Done:

  1. Preheat Oven 350
  2. BROWNIE: Add all dry ingredients, in a medium bowl whisk eggs together, add slowly into dry mix until well combined.  Add coconut oil and vanilla…mix well.  Pour into 8×8 inch pan lined with parchment paper.  Bake 15-20 min.  I checked mine with a toothpick at 20 min and it was perfect.
  3. Cheesecake: Beat all the ingredients together until smooth.  It is very important that the cream cheese be at room temp as it WILL have little chunks.  Pour over a slightly cooled brownie layer. 
  4. Return to oven for 25-30 min…30 min worked for me (use toothpick again)
  5. Allow the bars to cool before serving.  I ended up having mine in the refrigerator overnight before they were served

OPTIONAL:  We topped ours with Dark Chocolate Sauce, and fresh Raspberries.   I think Coconut Ice Cream would be divine!! (next time)
