Ingredients

  • Brownie batter
  • 1 cup flour
  • ½ cup unsweetened cocoa
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 ½ cups packed brown sugar
  • ¼ cup melted coconut oil you can also use canola or vegetable oil
  • ¼ cup buttermilk
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 2 eggs beaten
  • Cheesecake layer
  • 1 8 ounce block cream cheese, softened
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon peppermint extract
  • 1 egg
  • 1 egg white
  • 1 tablespoon flour

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, unsweetened cocoa, salt, and brown sugar.
  • Stir in coconut oil, buttermilk, vanilla, and eggs. Stir until everything is combined. Reserve ½ cup of the brownie batter.
  • Pour the rest of the batter into an 8-inch square-baking dish coated with cooking spray.
  • For the cheese cake batter place the cream cheese, sugar, peppermint extract, egg, and egg white into a medium bowl. Beat with a hand mixer, at medium speed, until smooth. Add flour and beat on low until combined.
  • Pour cheesecake batter over the brownie batter, spread evenly to the edges. Dot the cheesecake batter with the reserved brownie batter. Using a butter knife swirl the brownie batter into the cheesecake batter.
  • Bake for 31 minutes or until the cheesecake is set in the middle. Again, if you are using a 9-inch pan you might need to reduce cooking time.
  • Let cool in the pan on a wire rack. Then place in the refrigerator for a couple hours or overnight. Cut into 16 squares.
