Gluten Free Cheesecake Brownies

Gluten Free Cheesecake Brownies

I’m stressed ya’ll so that means I want something sweet to take my mind off the craziness going on in my life.  It’s good craziness but still mama wants some sugar.

Gluten Free Cheesecake Brownies

There Gluten free Cheesecake brownies are ,ore of a cake-like brownie than a chewy brownie but so good.   I do use real cream cheese in the cheesecake so this is a primal treat.  I still am avoiding nuts in my diet since they tend to cause and allergic reaction.

I won’t lie, I ate 3 of these within 10 minutes.  Thankfully I have my husband and son to help me demolish treats like this around the house.

    I was wondering, can this just be made as typical brownies and forgo the cream cheese bit on top? Have you done that with this recipe?

    I don’t have or eat cream cheese (dairy).

    Thank you!!!

      Hi Jaye, I haven’t made them without the cream cheese but I don’t see why it wouldn’t work. You might want to reduce the cook time slightly but that would be the only change.

    Love the look of these! When you say milk, can I use coconut milk? Also don’t have any maple syrup, would honey suffice?

    Those look crazy good! I’m not sure if I’m more excited about the cheesecake part or the brownie part, so it’s awesome that these have both so I don’t have to pick!

    I can’t eat dairy or chocolate, but I still had to have a look at this! It looks sooooo good. I love the idea of using sweet potatoes in the bar part. Have to think about what I could do with that!

    This looks amazing. And it almost fits all our food sensitivities. Any possibilities of a recipe substituting Great Lakes Gelatin for the eggs?? Thanks! Awesome Recipes.
