Information About the Ingredients

ingredients for the sugar free cheesecake brownie layer

Splenda Granulated Sweetener – Splenda sweetener is our substitute for real sugar which is one of the ley components to making our recipe diabetic-friendly. I use Splenda granulated sweetener in most of my recipes.

King Arthur Keto Wheat FlourKing Arthur Keto Wheat flour is our all-purpose flour replacement. It is a low-carb flour that works very well in most recipes. It is nut-free and works very well in recipes that use yeast. If using K.A. Keto Wheat Flour, use it in a 1:1 ratio, add extra liquid and be careful to not overmix.

Vanilla Extract – Vanilla extract is a flavour enhancer and helps to remove bitterness from ingredients, such as sweeteners. It also enhances other flavours and aromas. Pure extract is preferred but can be cost-prohibitive. Artificial Vanilla Extract can be used in place of pure extract.

Cocoa Powder – I like to use Dutch or Dark Cocoa, as I find that it has a rich chocolate flavour. If it is not available,e to use, standard or dark cocoa is fine.

Butter – I used salted butter in this recipe. If you use unsalted, add a pinch of extra salt for a flavour enhancer.

Eggs – Use large eggs if possible. If you are using medium-sized eggs, add extra egg white to compensate for the liquid. Eggs act as a binding agent in this recipe as well as adding moisture.

Cream Cheese – I recommend Low Fat Cream Cheese but if you have a preference for another type of cream cheese feel free to substitute. Keep in mind, it may change the nutritional values.

Helpful Tips and FAQs

Substituting the flour

If you have a preferred flour feel free to substitute it for the flour listed in our recipe. When baking for diabetics, you will likely want to keep the net carbs as low as possible. Using low-carb flour will help you achieve lower carbs in the overall finished recipe. Understanding the best flours to use in low-carb baking will help you make the best choice for you. Always keep in mind, changing the ingredients in our recipes will also change the nutritional value

Using a different sweetener

As mentioned above, I like to use Splenda granulated sweetener. I find that sweeteners that contain sugar alcohols impact my blood sugar negatively. I know this is not the case for everyone, so make substitutions to fit your own lifestyle and preferences. Remember, the final nutritional information per serving may differ after substituting.

Using full-fat cream cheese

Feel free to substitute the low-fat cream cheese with your preferred cream cheese. It will likely change the nutritional values, but will not change the delicious flavour of our sugar free cheesecake brownies.

Adding nuts to this recipe

It is easy to add nuts to this recipe. For the best results, add nuts to the brownie batter and not the cream cheese batter. Don’t forget to account for the nutritional values that are contained in the nuts.

Adding Chocolate Chips to this recipe.

Feel free to add chocolate chips as desired. Opt for sugar-free chocolate chips and make sure that you add the nutritional information from the chocolate chips to the nutrition info in this recipe.

Storage and freezing instructions.

Store in an airtight container or covered with plastic wrap for 4 to 5 days refrigerated. For serving, reheat in a microwave on half power for 20 seconds.

These sugar free cheesecake brownies can be frozen for up to two weeks. My experience has been that baked recipes that contain cream cheese can absorb a lot of moisture when freezing. If when thawing, you find them too moist, either microwave them or place them on a wire cooling rack in a warm oven for 20 minutes.
