After these brownie stuffed cookies, I mean it this time. I’m done. Really.
It’s just… come on. Tis’ the season to be jolly with our bellies full cookies, right? Merry Christmas! Or for those of you who don’t celebrate, Happy Nondenominational Winter Holiday. Or Happy Day After the Apocalypse. Regardless of what you’re celebrating, I hope you eat your weight in cookies anyway.
So, can you accept me posting just one more
Wow. Thanks a lot WordPress. This is where my post ends.
As you can imagine, I wrote this beautiful, witty, thought-provoking post that would have you weeping and laughing all at once. But then it deleted. It saved up to that point. I don’t know why, or how, but the Internet is remarkable in its ability to infuriate.
So please start laughing. I just said something so brilliantly humorous you almost can’t come up for breath out of your hysterical laughter induced by my comedic genius. You now begin to weep, not because of how ridiculous that previous statement was or because of my sheer lack of ability as a technology whisperer, but because of a thought-provoking statement I would have just said right now.
I did it say it. It just got deleted. Trust me.
Anyway, I think I said something about an earth shattering revelation. It probably had to do with putting a brownie in a cookie. Hence the recipe and the pictures. Sherlock has nothing on my deductive reasoning.
I know. It’s so hard being healthy.
- 2 Tablespoons coconut flour
- 1/8 teaspoon baking powder
- pinch salt
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/4 teaspoon molasses
- 2 Tablespoons applesauce or mashed banana
- 2 Tablespoons almond milk
- stevia, to taste (I used 1 packet)
- 2 Amazing Low Carb Brownies or Low Carb Peanut Butter Brownies, halved
- 1. Preheat oven to 350F. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or a silicone mat and set aside.
- 2. In a medium bowl, combine coconut flour, baking powder, and salt. Stir in vanilla extract, molasses, and applesauce or mashed banana. Add in almond milk one tablespoon at a time until thoroughly incorporated. Sweeten to taste.
- 3. Take a heaping tablespoons of cookie dough and place it on top of one of the halved brownies. Using your fingers, smoosh the dough down around the sides and bottom of the brownie until it is uniformly covered. Place on the prepared baking sheet and repeat process with the remaining brownies and dough. Bake in the oven for 12-15 minutes, or until firm and slightly golden. Let cool and devour.
Recipe Notes and Substitutions
Feel free to use pre-made brownies in place of the homemade low carb ones in case you don’t feel like whipping up an entire batch.
Go ahead. Remember, these are healthy. And calories don’t count in December anyway, right?
