Have you had enough chocolate yet this week? This is the third new recipe of the week, all of which have been desserts! In case you missed it, I shared a guest recipe for Homemade Oreo Cookies and my personal favorite Almond Flour Brownie recipe. We’re using the brownie recipe as the base for today’s fall inspired treat.
Hope you enjoy these Pumpkin Cheesecake Chocolate Brownies! I am munching on a big square of this delicious dessert now while sitting in a hotel room in Greensboro, North Carolina. We are relaxing after a long day of searching for our new future home! I can’t remember the last update I shared on our new business progress. Here’s the quick summary – The build out process has started on our future health center, set to open in January 2013! It will be called Triad Health Center. Healing Cuisine will also be expanding from my small couch and kitchen to my own office space within Triad Health Center! We’re bringing a completely new health care system to Greensboro. We’re moving from Charlotte to Greensboro the weekend after Thanksgiving. We’re up here now looking for rental homes. That gives us two weeks to figure our lives out. The search continues tomorrow. Pray for us.. :)
Pumpkin Cheesecake Chocolate Brownies
Makes 25 Brownies
1 unbaked Signature Brownie batter
8 oz organic cream cheese, softened
3/4 cup pure pumpkin puree
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground cloves
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1/2 cup powdered xylitol
2 Tbsp Stevita Spoonable Stevia
1.) Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 9 x 13 inch glass baking pan with coconut oil. In blender, process together egg, cream cheese, pumpkin, cinnamon, cloves, ginger, xylitol, and stevia until smooth.
2.) Spread about two thirds of the Signature Brownie batter into prepared pan. Spread all of the pumpkin batter over top, distributing evenly. Drop the remaining brownie batter over the cheesecake batter. To make the swirls, run a butter knife back and forth through the pan vertically and horizontally.
3.) Bake for 35-40 minutes, or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool completely and chill before cutting and serving.
