Serves 12 | Prep Time | Cook Time 25 to 30


3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp table salt
5 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa
1 cup sugar, granulated
1/2 cup light cream cheese, softened
2 large egg(s), divided into yolks and whites
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup crispy rice cereal
2 Tbsp powdered sugar
1 Tbsp butter, melted

Preheat oven to 350°F.

Place 2 sheets of nonstick aluminum foil in bottom and up sides of a 9- X 9-inch baking pan (or place regular foil in pan and coat it with cooking spray).

Sift flour, baking powder, salt and cocoa together in a medium bowl.

Cream granulated sugar and cream cheese together in a large bowl until light and fluffy.

Add egg yolks, one at a time, beating until fully combined; mix in vanilla.

Slowly blend flour mixture with cream cheese mixture.

Whisk egg whites until soft peaks begin to form; fold egg whites into brownie mix and then spread brownie batter evenly in prepared pan.

Combine cereal, powdered sugar and melted butter in a small bowl; sprinkle on top of brownies. Place pan on middle rack in oven and bake just until center sets, about 25 to 30 minutes.

Cool completely and cut into 12 pieces.
