What is a brookie? So glad that you asked because it's two of my favorite desserts or cookies in one! Is it possible to have a brownie and a cookie all in one? Yes, yes it is. I've made these brookies even healthier by adding less refined sugar, and more nutrient dense foods. These are chewy and soft, and filled with chocolate morsels. Your gonna love them!
Combine the best desserts into one!
My all time favorite cookies or dessert to make is chocolate chip cookies and brownies. Either of these treats are simple and easy and they both taste delicious! But what if you could have them combined together! Now they are even better. Try them out for yourself and let me know!
1 1/2 cups almond flour
1/4 c cocoa powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp sea salt
¾ cup coconut sugar
3 Tbsps. melted coconut oil or butter
1 large egg
1 large Egg yolk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 c chocolate chips or chunks (I used the lily's brand of chocolate chips-sweetened with stevia)
Chocolate Chip Cookie Topping:
1 cup (2 sticks) butter-softened
3/4 c maple sugar + 2 TBSP
2 tsp vanilla
2 tsp cornstarch
1 TBSP heavy cream
1 3/4 c organic all purpose flour or organic whole wheat flour (could also use spelt flour)
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 sea salt
1/2 c chocolate chips + a few to sprinkle on the top as well
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F
Place parchment paper on the bottom of a 9 by 13 pan and spray the bottom with avocado oil spray or vegetable oil.
Start by making your brownie batter for the bottom
In a small bowl add your almond flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and sea salt together, set aside.
Now in a separate bowl add your coconut sugar and coconut oil together, then add your egg and egg yolk, and then the vanilla.
Add the dry ingredients to your wet ingredients. Combine well, then fold in your chocolate chips. The batter will be really thick and that's okay.
You are going to spread the batter evenly onto your 9 by13 pan. It will seem like there isn't enough batter but keep pushing it up against the sides until it is evenly spread out.
Now set aside and make your chocolate chip cookie batter
In a bowl with a stand mixer cream your butter and maple sugar together for 1-2 minutes. Add your egg, vanilla, cornstarch, and heavy cream.
Now in a separate bowl mix your dry ingredients-flour, baking powder and sea salt
Add this to your butter and sugar mixture. Mix until fluffy then fold in the chocolate chips.
Now spread this chocolate chip batter on top of the brownie batter in your 9 by 13 pan. Bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes or until the top is slightly brown.
Let cool completely before slicing, will keep on the counter or in the fridge for about 7-9 days but don't be surprised if they are gone before then!
*Makes about 12-14 cookie bars
