Ingredients

  • 7 ounces bittersweet chocolate the best you can buy; Theo’s is one I love
  • 7 oz grass fed butter softened-- 7 oz is 1 3/4 sticks.
  • 1 cup raw honey divided; 1/2 cup reserved for cream cheese batter
  • 5 large pastured eggs
  • 1/4 cup almond flour
  • 1/2 cup coconut flour
  • Pinch sea salt
  • 20 oz cream cheese 2 1/2 8-oz boxes
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Instructions

  • Melt chocolate in double boiler (or heat-proof bowl set over saucepan of simmering water) on low until melted. Set aside to cool to room temp.
  • Combine butter and 1/2 cup of the honey. Cream on medium speed until light and fluffy. Continuing to mix, add 3 of the eggs, one at a time. Mix each in before adding the next. Stir in melted chocolate and mix until just blended.
  • Stir in flours and salt.
  • Prepare a 9 x 13 inch pan with parchment or with softened butter. Spread the chocolate mixture in the pan, reserving one cup of batter.
  • Combine cream cheese with the remaining 1/4 cup of honey. Beat cheese first and add honey; blend until smooth. Add remaining 2 eggs and vanilla; mix well.
  • Spread cream cheese mixture over chocolate batter. Drop spoonfuls of the reserved chocolate batter over the cream cheese batter and with a knife, swirl the batters creating a marble effect.
  • Bake brownies at 325 degrees for 50-55 minutes until skewer inserted comes out with a moist crumb.
  • Cool to room temp and refrigerate for even cutting.
