Ingredients

For the Brownie Layer:

  • 3/4 cup Pamela’s GF Artisan Flour Blend
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup melted coconut or olive oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp. vanilla bean paste or GF vanilla extract
  • 1 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup water or cold coffee

For the Cheesecake Layer:

Extra Toppings:

  • 6-7 ounces of your favorite high-quality candy bar chopped (we like Alter Eco Dark Salted Burnt Caramel)
  • 1/4 cup chopped nuts

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350°. Lightly spray 8 x 8 inch square pan with cooking spray.
  • Make the Cheesecake Layer: In a medium bowl and using an electric mixer at medium speed, beat the cream cheese until smooth and creamy, about 1 minute. Beat in the sugar and the vanilla until very smooth, 1 to 2 minutes. Beat in the egg until well blended. Set aside.
  • For the Brownies: In a small bowl combine flour, salt, baking powder, and cocoa. Mix and set aside.
  • In a large bowl, whisk oil and eggs together until combined. Add vanilla and sugar. Slowly mix in flour mixture and water. Once all flour is combined, reserve 1/2 cup of brownie batter and spread the rest spread evenly into the prepared pan.
  • Pour the cheesecake batter over the top of the brownie batter and smooth. Drop the reserved brownie batter in large dollops over the topping. Draw the handle of a wooden spoon through the two batters to create a swirled effect. Top with chopped candy and nuts, and gently push down to slightly sink topping into batter.
  • Bake on center rack for 40-45 minutes or until toothpick comes out with just a few crumbs.
  • Cool completely and serve.
