No-Sugar Baker’s Double Chocolate Brownies
Are you a dessert purist? A no-sugar skeptic? A serious sweet tooth?
We invite you to try these seriously good sugar-free brownies. We make them with Swerve, a natural sweetener that measures cup-for-cup with sugar (no math required!). Swerve is made from select fruits and root vegetables, and it’s got NO artificial ingredients, preservatives or flavors. It doesn’t raise blood sugar or insulin levels (it’s non-glycemic), so it’s safe for those living with diabetes and, perhaps best of all, it bakes up well.
The No-Sugar Baker’s Double Chocolate Brownies have a chocolate layer on the bottom and a very soft, chocolatey top. They’re a nice balance between crispy and fudgy, and they have a cool, almost minty freshness to them. The amount of chocolate in them is perfect.

Preparation time: 10 minutes

1 box Swerve Sweets Chocolate Cake Mix
1 cup organic butter, melted, divided
3 eggs, divided
8 ounces organic cream cheese

- Heat oven to 350 F. Grease a 9×9-inch baking pan with cooking spray and set aside.
- In a small bowl, combine cake mix, ½ cup butter and 1 egg. Your mixture will be thick. Pat into pan and set aside.
- In a large mixing bowl, whip cream cheese until light and fluffy. Add in remaining ½ cup melted butter, 2 eggs, cocoa, vanilla and Swerve confectioners’ sugar. When combined and mixed well, pour onto cake layer. Bake for at least 50 to 60 minutes.
