Jump to Recipe

A brownie recipe that combines two of the best things – chocolate and chocolate chip cookie dough! It’s also dairy-free, egg-free, gluten-free and refined sugar-free friendly!

One of the reasons why I love baking so much is that it’s so relatable. It doesn’t matter your background, race, gender or nutritional needs… when it comes to baking, we all enjoy the outcome.

And I think we can all relate when it comes to needing a go-to recipe that is essentially a warm hug. This Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Brownies recipe is exactly that – especially when you top it with ice cream!

what’s in these Cookie Dough Brownies?

Dairy-free, egg-free, gluten-free and refined sugar-free ingredients! You’ll need…

Cashew Butter
Maple Syrup
– Plant-Based Milk
Vanilla Pea Protein
Oat Flour
Almond Flour
Dark Chocolate Chips
Ground Flaxseed
– Granulated Sugar { coconut sugar or a sugar alternative}
Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
– Baking Powder
– Salt
– optional Plant-Based Ice Cream

Are there substitutes?

I mean… the possibilities are endless.

Homemade cookie dough for store-bought – If you don’t want to prep the cookie dough, simply buy some from the store! Store-bought cookie dough (or any cookie dough intended on being cookies) will “melt” into the brownies but it will still be DELICIOUS!
Protein bars anyone? If you have a favorite protein bar… chop her up and chuck her in! It will have the same consistency as the cookie dough that I’ve created and you’ll get a nice boost of protein too.
Nut Butter – Don’t have cashew? Make these brownies a bit more flavorful with a different non-neutral nut butter.
Cookie dough for cookies – Swap out the cookie dough for already cooked cookies.
Add-ins – Nuts, white chocolate chips, dark chocolate chips, cookies in addition to the cookie dough… the possibilities are endless!

How are these brownies gluten-free?

Both the cookie dough and brownies use ingredients that contain no gluten. The cookie dough is made with a gluten-free oat flour and almond flour mixture while the brownies are made with gluten-free oat flour.

To make your own oat flour, simply add gluten-free oats to your high speed blender and blend until you see a fine powder. You can make this process easier by occasionally scraping down the sides and blending again.

How Do you Store these Brownies?

If you choose to top the brownies with ice cream… it’s kind an eat immediately situation. That being said, you can always prep these brownies beforehand and top them with ice cream when you are ready to eat!

If you don’t plan of topping them with ice cream (I mean… why?? Just kidding. But not really.) You can wait for the brownies to cool, slice them into squares and place the squares in an air tight container for up to 5 days.

For the best eating experience, heat the brownies in the microwave for 30+ seconds until warmed through.
