Low Carb Cream Cheese Brownies

I got this recipe from here.  I made mine with xylitol and stevia as splenda does not agree with me.  So here is what I did:

Low Carb Cream Cheese Brownies
8 oz cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup xylitol
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
in a small bowl, beat cream cheese and xylitol until creamy.  Add egg and vanilla.  Mix until smooth.  Set aside.

1 cup butter, unsalted
3 Tbsp oil
1/2 cup xylitol & 1/4 tsp pure stevia extract
2 Tbsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup cocoa powder, unsweetened
4 lg eggs
1 cup almond flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
dash of salt

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
Butter sides and bottom of a 9X13 baking pan, set aside.
In small sauce pan, melt butter, add oil and cocoa powder until smooth and combined.  Remove from heat and cool slightly.

In large mixing bowl, add chocolate mixture, xylitol, stevia and vanilla.  Mix until combined.  Then add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each egg.  Then mix in almond flour, baking powder and salt.  Mix well.  Spread into prepared pan.
Pour cream cheese mixture on top of brownie and lightly swirl with a knife.  Bake for 25 minutes or until set.  If you like a more cake like brownie, bake an additional 5 minutes.  Cool completely, then cut into 20 equal squares
