Who doesn’t love cheesecake, and chocolate, and pumpkin? Let’s swirl them all together into a Pumpkin Cheesecake Swirl Brownie! And what’s even better, these are Grain Free Pumpkin Cheesecake Swirl Brownies made with all REAL FOOD ingredients, no refined sugar and I’ve swapped out the cocoa powder for Superfood Raw Cacao!
These brownies are very easy to make, however swirling 2 toppings can be a little tricky! I created a large Z in the brownie batter with a spoon (going about 1/2 way deep into the batter) then filled it in with the cheesecake filling, then created lines in-between the cheesecake filling that I filled with the pumpkin filling. Using a wooden skewer I swirled everything together!
After they are baked, they look truly amazing, don’t you think???
