Cheesecake Swirl Keto Brownies
What I love with this dessert is you are getting two delicious desserts that come together for one perfectly satisfying dessert. Once your keto brownies are done baking, just cut them up into single serve sizes and you have perfectly tasty treats to reward yourself with. This keto brownie recipe is one of my favorites that I have been using for awhile now and they come out perfect each time.
Cheesecake Swirl Brownies
Since I started my low carb diet I have found that I have more energy, and rarely cheat. When I have keto brownies that help give me that sweet treat that my body loves, it makes it easier to stay on track. If I get to where I don’t have a variety of delicious recipes, I begin to stray and then fall totally off the diet wagon. But being able to whip up a keto approved dessert makes it easy for me to keep chugging along.
The beauty of this recipe is you use basic pantry ingredients. Now if you are new to the keto diet, you might have to pick up some almond flour but everything else is pretty much staples in our home. Minimal ingredients and steps are needed to achieve perfectly sweet cheesecake swirl brownies in the end.
Just mix up your brownie batter, then in another bowl whip up your cheesecake batter. Pour the brownie batter into a greased pan and then drop your cheesecake mixture on top. Grab a knife and swirl the cheesecake mixture so it mixes somewhat with the brownie. Toss in the oven and wait for that timer to go off!
Why I Use Almond Flour For Keto Brownies
I love the flavor of almond flour brownies over say other flours that are approved in the keto diet. In my opinion almond flour gives you similar taste and texture to all-purpose flour. You really want to feel like you are getting that same brownie you would whip up out of a box or make homemade, and almond flour is my preference. I hope you all enjoy this indulging keto brownie recipe.
