I think you should be drooling just from the title of this one, I mean really:

Chocolate (nothing better)
Cheesecake (wait, this might be better than chocolate...)
Brownie (drooooooool)
Cupcakes (perfection!)

Did I mention these are even made with wheat flour? Does that mean we can pretend they are healthy? Healthy or not, they definately should be on your menu plans this week.

Chocolate Cheesecake Brownie Cupcakes

What you need:

  • 2 eggs
  • 4 oz cream cheese
  • 3/4 c. sugar
  • 1/3 c. oil (any)
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/2 t. baking powder
  • 1/2 c. cocoa powder (unsweetened)
  • 1/2 c. wheat or white wheat flour
  • 1 c. chocolate chips

Soften the cream cheese and add in the eggs, sugar, and oil.

Mix in the rest of the ingredients.

And add in the chocolate chips last.

Drop into a muffin or cupcake tin. Make sure to grease if you don't use cupcake liners. Bake at 350F for about 15 minutes. Try not to over-bake or they will be too dry.

You can frost them or leave them plain. I made a simple whipped ganache frosting for these. (Heat heavy cream, remove from heat, add chocolate chips and a little vanilla, cool overnight then whip.)

Try not to eat them all right after you make them. I dare you.

Could you sub coconut or almond flour in for same amount? Also could you swap sugar for honey or maple syrup??

Yes on the flours, but I don’t think a liquid sweetener would work. You could try succanat or evaporated cane juice or even palm or coconut sugar instead.
