Gluten-Free Cheesecake Brownies

gluten free desserts

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.

This is more of a cake-like brownie than a chewy brownie but so good.   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!
