Low Carb Cream Cheese Brownies

Here’s a family favorite that is suitable to actually replace the real deal. Just need to say that this recipe is made with Xylosweet which is not safe for pets. Please do not feed your pets anything that contains a xylitol sweetener, it can make them sick. And to all my PCOS Cysters you are going to love these brownies…they are the best yet!

The gluten free flour isn’t a must but I find that it helps with the brownie texture.

My son who is the pickiest eater in the family loves these brownies and he’s not a cream cheese fan either. I made them in a similar fashion to the one bowl brownies recipe found in the Baker’s Chocolate box. They come out perfect every time! If you want them more fudgy you can leave out the gluten free flour.  I’ve never tried freezing leftovers because honestly there’s never any to freeze lol but I do recommend keeping them in the fridge if you are the only one eating them, mostly due to the cream cheese topping. Hope you all enjoy!!
