Halloween Swirl Cream Cheese Brownies Recipe

Despite the fact these cream cheese brownies are made with whole grain flour, I am not trying to pass them off as healthy. The thing is, healthy people like treats too! And treats don’t ALWAYS have to be turned around upside down and modified so you can say it is healthy. Do I like doing that sometimes with recipes? Sure! But when hallowen cream cheese brownies are involved, you don’t want to make so many changes that they no longer taste the way they were meant to taste.
