  • Mix cream cheese and stevia together in a bowl using an electric mixer until creamy smooth. Mix in egg and vanilla extract until fully combined.

  • Bring a saucepan of water to a simmer. Top saucepan with a heatproof bowl large enough to stay above the water. Combine butter, stevia, cocoa powder, and salt in the bowl. Cook and stir until melted and fully combined, 1 to 3 minutes. Remove from heat and cool until bowl is safe to handle. Whisk in 1 egg at a time, stirring vigorously, until mixture becomes pudding-like. Add almond flour and continue to whisk brownie mixture until blended.

  • Pour 2/3 of the brownie mixture into the bottom of the prepared baking pan. Add cream cheese mixture. Top with dollops of remaining brownie mixture and use a knife to create a swirled design.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until set but still slightly jiggly, about 25 minutes. Cool before serving.

This cheesecake is very good; however, is it really 17 grams of carbs? That's really high for a keto diet. Read More

I didn't like this dessert. I haven't found a good keto dessert yet so it may be my taste buds. The cocoa seems so over powering. It is nice to have keto recipes on this website so thanks for posting. Some people do like this just not me. keto on....:) Read More

Came out so good! I added some almond extract along with the vanilla. I use Swerve as the sweetener -- it measures like sugar and has the least aftertaste of the sugar substitutes I've tried. Also I needed to cook it a little longer, around 30 or 32 minutes. Read More

Cocoa cake portion is very dry. Too much cocoa. Also to make brownies I highly recommend you double all parts of the chocolate part of the recipe EXCEPT the cocoa. The cream cheese is very very tasty. I thought by combining the two would help but not a chance. Read More
