Ingredients for Keto Cream Cheese Brownies
The most amazing cheesecake filling is swirled into these keto chocolate brownies. Here are the ingredients you'll need to make these simple keto brownies:
Swerve granulated sugar substitute
Unsweetened cocoa powder
Can I Substitute a Different Grain-Free Flour?
No, almond flour is required in this keto chocolate brownie recipe.
Can I Use a Different Sugar Substitute?
Perhaps, but I can't say for sure. Swerve (and monkfruit sweeteners) have worked well for me, and they are my go-to sweetener for baking.
Can I Substitute an Egg?
Perhaps, but I've only made the keto brownies exactly as written.
