Cheesecake Brownies. Vegan Cheesecake Brownies. Do I need to say more? 😀 I literally can’t imagine anyone not liking these delicious squares. They combine the best out of two popular desserts. Oeey-gooey chocolate brownies and smooth, rich cheesecake! Yum! These Vegan Cheesecake Brownies are just worth making, as they’re really simple and quick to prepare but are absolutely mouthwatering! 🙂
The ingredients are quite simple and can be found anywhere – except for maybe vegan yogurt? But I figured that by now any bigger city around the world should stock some sort of soy/almond/coconut yogurt in their range, shouldn’t they?
What’s important with these brownies is the baking time. I’d advise baking them anywhere between 30-40 minutes. The ones from the pictures have been baked 40 minutes and I’d almost say 35 would have been their sweet spot for ultimate gooeyness! I’ll try that next time.
