Matcha Green Tea Cheesecake Swirl Brownies (Recipe)

Matcha Green Tea Cheesecake Swirl Brownies are just so yummy!  My kids have already eaten half of them. We love brownies and we love cheesecake so a combination of the two is too natural. I was sent a sample of Mocafe Matcha Green tea powder and asked to use it in a recipe. (I requested the sample via, the samples are gone but you can find more reipces there.)  
My kids have been asking for cheesecake brownies so I thought I could take it to another level by adding the Mocafe Matcha Green Tea powder.  Sometimes as a special treat we go to Pho Tai Vietamese and buy the girls Green Tea or cantaloupe  Bubble Tea.  If you have never had bubble tea it is more like a Frappe with large tapioca pearls at the bottom of course the girls like it without the bubbles (tapioca). 

Box of Brownies mix and the ingredients listed to make plain brownies.
Mine called for eggs, oil and water
(Note: I substituted milk for the water for extra flavor)

Cheesecake topping:
1/3 cup of white sugar
8 oz. of Cream Cheese
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 egg
1 Tablespoon Matcha Green Tea Powder

Preheat oven to 350 F

Make brownies as instructed on the box.
Pour brownies into greased pan (9x13 in)

Mix the cream cheese and sugar together.  Add the egg and vanilla extract.  Mix until uniform.  Mix in the Matcha Green Tea Powder.
Add the cream cheese mixture to the brownies by the spoonful. Evenly distribute the cream cheese mixture over the surface of the brownie mix.  

 Once all of the cream cheese mixture is on top of the brownie mix swirl with a knife.  Hold the knife perpendicular to the pan and go back and forth in a grid pattern in one direction and then the other.
Bake the Brownies for about 1 hour. Let the Brownies coll, cut and then enjoy!
