Gluten Free Cheesecake Brownies coconut flour

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 moere of a cake-like brownie than a chewy brownie but they 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'm going to try these today!! There was a big sale on cream cheese at the grocery so now I have some extra blocks to use up :D. I was just wondering why a round pan needs to be used? Can I use my 8" square brownie pan or will that make them too thin?

Looks awesome and I intend to try it! Quick Q: do you think almond flour will work as well (instead of the coconut flour)?

They are two completely different animals. I would just look for an almond flour recipe and then add the cheesecake recipe on top!

I made these yesterday and they are delicious! I couldn't get the cream cheese to spread nicely on the top like you did ;) I used canned pumpkin because that's all I had and it worked fine.

So glad it worked for you hun. The cream cheese was very soft - left out for like half a day which is why it spread so easily.

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.

I think the coconut flour would work really well with it hun. I hope it works for you.
