These brownie cookies are super easy to make and are basically just a lot of cocoa powder, butter and sugar mixed into a cookie. They may be flourless but that does not mean they are healthy, they are definitely a treat. A very, very delicious treat and perfect for anyone who loves chocolate. Who wouldn’t like a brownie + cookie baby.
These cookies are super easy to make and are almost too good. After bringing these to a potluck and a family dinner I have had to promise to make these again ASAP and in the words of my favourite picky 9 year old “these really are excellent”. Make these soon and see how easy and delicious these cookies are for yourself.
Makes about 12-18 cookies (depending on the size). I often double the recipe due to their popularity.
- 1/2 cup white sugar
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 cup softened butter
- 1 egg
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1 cup cocoa powder
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 1/2 cup white chocolate chips
- 1/2 cup chopped nuts (I used pecans)
Preheat the oven to 350 F.
In a mixing bowl blend the sugars and butter. Add the vanilla and egg and mix well. Add the cocoa powder, salt and baking soda and mix again. Finally, add the nuts and chocolate. Form the dough into balls on a cookie sheet covered in parchment. Bake in the oven for 10-12 minutes. You don’t want to overcook these. They should stay soft.
I made the cookie dough a day in advance and it kept great in the fridge.
I adapted cookies above from this recipe from Yammie’s Gluten Freedom and just made a few changes.
