Brownie layer:

Cheesecake layer:

  • 8 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature (can use dairy-free or dairy cream cheese)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line an 9×9 baking dish with baking sheets
  2. In a medium bowl, cream together the cheesecake ingredients for about 2-3 minutes until smooth and creamy with no chunks (a stand mixer or hand mixer works best)
  3. In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, oil and coconut sugar until smooth
  4. Mix in the cake mix and stir until the batter is fully combined (I also added chocolate chips but it’s optional!)
  5. Add 2/3 of the brownie batter to the baking dish and spread across
  6. Spread the cheesecake batter on top
  7. Add dollops the remaining brownie batter on top and swirl with a knife
  8. Bake in oven for 25 minutes (or until toothpick comes out clean)
  9. Allow the cheesecake brownies to cool for a few then slice and enjoy

Notes
