Low Carb Chocolate Cream-Cheese Brownies – Kim’s Club

chocolate cream cheese brownies bestOne of my all time favourite treats so I just HAD to adapt them for low-carb!  A note to you paleo-people:  You can replace the cream cheese with thick coconut cream, OR if you can get it, coconut yogurt such as Co-yo. And use coconut oil or ghee instead of butter.   These are so good I don’t want ANYONE to miss out!
