Pretty to look at, easy to make, moist and gooey to eat, keto black bottom brownie cupcakes are a perfect dessert to bring to a party or picnic are a nice choice when you love chocolate and cheesecake.

A creamy, sweetened cream cheese with chocolate chips is dolloped on chocolate brownie batter, and baked together orchestrating a perfect cheesecake brownie bite.

This recipe makes one 8 x 8 brownie pan, yielding 16 brownie squares.

These are baked in an 8 x 8 pan, but for my bakery, I double the recipe and bake 12 in these paper tart liners.

Note: you can substitute swerve with allulose or your choice erythritol. If you do not have confectioner’s sweetener, you can make your own in a super blender with a granulated version.

Baking Process for Keto Black Bottom Brownies

Cream Cheese Mixture: Combine cream cheese, egg, sugar free confectioner’s sweetener together. Add in 1/3 cup chocolate chips. Make sure to get this very creamy before adding the chocolate chips. Set aside and dollop on once the batter is made and in the liners or pan.

Keto Black Bottom Brownie Mixture: Mix cocoa powder with boiling water. Mix well. Add sour cream. Set aside. Combine all remaining dry ingredients. Set aside. Mix eggs with oil. Add chocolate mixture. Add dry ingredients. Add 2/3 cup chocolate chips. Batter will be thick, but if it’s too thick, add a little more boiling water or milk. Place batter in pan. Dollop the cream cheese mixture and and use a knife to spread out. Don’t over mix. Bake at 350 until internal temperature reaches no more than 207 degrees F. You can take out at 200 degrees F.

Chocolate Cake

Cream Cheese Filling

  • 4 ounces cream cheese
  • 1/4 cup Swerve confectioner's Sweetener see notes
  • 1 small egg or half large egg (scramble first)
  • 1/3 cup sugar free chocolate chips


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. or 180 C.
  • I use parchment paper, overlapping pan and spray with baking spray for an 8 x 8 brownie pan.
  • Mix dry ingredients: almond flour, coconut flour: baking powder, baking soda, salt, xanthan gum. Set aside.
  • Beat eggs in mixer.
  • Stream oil in while mixer is running. This emulsifies the oil to the eggs.
  • Add Swerve or erythritol of choice.
  • In separate bowl mix cocoa powder, with boiling water. It may be thick and that's okay. The boiling water blooms the powders for extra flavor.
  • Add in sour cream to cocoa mixture, as cocoa mixture will be quite thick.
  • Add this cocoa mixture to egg mixture.
  • Add in dry mixture, and mix just until mixed. Do not over-mix.
  • Add in chocolate chips.
  • Pour batter into prepared pan. Smooth out.
  • Add Cream Cheese Mixture below.

    Everything you want in a brownie – great texture and so much chocolate flavor. The chips give it a little bite which is so nice. No one would ever know this is low carb.
