Green Tea Cream Cheese Brownies.

Hi. How is everyone? Baked anything during the weekends?

As my last post, I mentioned that my mind is filled with all the cheesecake & cakes stuffs.

I let the sweet devil succumb over me and I made these babies. 
Sweet evil little babies.
Sometimes I wonder how sweet devil looks like. 
Oh dear, I don't want to know.  

I just grew a pound by sniffing them.

These are definitely not healthy at all. Not gluten free nor sugar free.

If you can see my post, you will notice that I seldom make brownies. 
I'm not really a big fan of brownies and I seldom eat them. 

But I just brought two blocks of cream cheese and I still have quite a lot of green tea powder, hence I decided to make some cream cheese brownies.
Luckily they didn't disappoint me.

These are fudgy and delicious. Every bite is filled with cream cheese in the mouth.

Thank GOD.

I added one more teaspoon of green tea powder to my cream cheese batter because I thought that the green tea wasn't strong enough for me. 
These brownies are not too sweet. Just nice for me.
