These gluten-free cheesecake brownies are made with a rich and fudgy chocolate brownie base and a tangy, sweet cream cheese layer swirled with more chocolate brownie batter. This brownie recipe is so decadent, I promise no one will be able to tell they are gluten-free!



For the Cream Cheese Filling:

  • 2 8oz. packages of cream cheese (Tip: use full-fat brick-style cream cheese for the best flavor)
  • 2/3 cup white sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • Optional: chocolate chips

For the Brownie Batter:

  • 1 cup butter (2 sticks)
  • 2 cups white sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 cup cocoa
  • 1 cup all-purpose gluten-free flour (or regular flour)
  • Optional: chopped walnuts


  • Preheat the oven to 350F.

Make the cream cheese filling:

  • In a large bowl, blend cream cheese, sugar and eggs until smooth.

Make the brownie batter:

  • In a separate large bowl, blend butter, sugar, eggs, and salt using an electric mixer.
  • Add cocoa and nuts, if using, and stir in by hand until blended.
  • Add flour and mix until combined and a batter forms.
  • Pour the brownie batter into a baking pan greased or lined with parchment paper. Leave a little extra brownie batter to dollop on top of the cream cheese filling.
  • Pour the cream cheese filling over the brownie batter and smooth out so the batter is completely covered.
  • Thin the extra brownie batter with a tiny bit of water and use a spoon to dollop over the cheesecake filling. Use a fork or toothpick to swirl the batter into the cheesecake layer.
  • Bake for 35-40 minutes at 350F, until batter is set and a toothpick comes out clean from the middle of the pan.
  • Cool and store in an airtight container for up to two weeks. These brownies keep well at room temperature, in the fridge or in the freezer.
