Sometimes there are no words necessary to explain the amazing-ness of a recipe.
This is one of those times.
Vegan chocolate chip cookie dough brownies.
As if the picture doesn’t just scream “I am amazing!”
One bite and you will surely know the truth!
Stuffed with egg free ~ dairy free edible cookie dough
Actually it’s cookie dough mixed with buttercream!
Yep, it just keeps getting better because the whole thing is then topped with chocolate ganache.
You will see in the video tutorial that I decided to bake them in individual cupcake portions but you can of course bake the entire batter in a 8″ X 8″ pan and go traditional style brownies in a sheet.
But I just felt so special with my own little cupcake-like cookie dough stuffed gem all for me!
However you can absolutely make this entire recipe in an 8″ x 8″ pan for a traditional brownie square
I’ve also use the cookie dough buttercream as an icing for cupcakes!
Or for a super easy treat just roll the cookie dough filling in some cocoa powder for instant truffles!
Whatever way you want to eat this edible chocolate chip cookie dough is up to you!
But I know whatever you do with it, you will be happy!

Be sure to toast your flour and cool it to cold before making the raw cookie dough
It is no longer deemed “safe” to eat raw cookie dough anymore due to possible risks of contaminated raw flour.
But toasting the flour in a 350°F oven for 5-7 minutes will prevent any illness from occurring!

Hi Gretchen, I tried making a smaller batch of the cookie dough without buttercream to try it, and whenever I try raw cookie dough recipes I always find it tastes too much of flour compared to the raw cookie dough you would find in commercial products like ice cream or the premade cookie dough. Is that slightly floury taste just how it’s supposed to be or is there some secret to getting rid of that? Thanks in advance any info and thank you for sharing your amazing recipes!
HI Brian, did you try this recipe? I have a much lower ratio of flour to butter/sugar here so mine tends to be very “loose” unlike “real” cookie dough that would be baked. I suppose I also took what you are saying into consideration and why I created the recipe this way. Give it a try – but if you still find it to be too “floury” you can always switch out the flour to an non wheat flour (since we wont be baking this it is very forgiving)
The Deadly Brain
Great bake, Gretchen! Love the recipe and thank you for the food concerns at the end. Pretty bad when you really have to be extra safe conscious when making something from scratch and so delicious such as cookie dough. Though, I suppose in this time we live if we really start to look at everything we eat, and all the dangers we know are out there and all the false dangers they tell us about to scare us away from the healthy (better than commercial) foods, we would starve avoiding everything. So let the cookies fly and eat what you make. Thank you again as always for the tasty food and the brain food…
Hi. I would love to make the brownie with cookie dough . How do I get the written recipe. Thanks so much!
