Brownie Stuffed Cookies (Vegan/Gluten Free/Grain Free/Paleo/Low Carb)

by Kelly M

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.

So here’s what I think you should do. Whip up a batch of these or these brownies, and save the quarter of the pan you didn’t immediately inhale to stuff into cookies.

Brownie Stuffed Cookies (Vegan/Gluten Free/Grain Free/Paleo/Low Carb)

Ingredients

  • 2 Tablespoons coconut flour

  • pinch salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon molasses

  • stevia, to taste (I used 1 packet)
  • 2 Amazing Low Carb Brownies or Low Carb Peanut Butter Brownies, halved

Instructions

  1. 1. Preheat oven to 350F. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or a silicone mat and set aside.
  2. 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. 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.

Hi, I’m new to this… Corn is classified as a grain, yes? And baking powder contains cornstarch. Are grains/starches allowed on paleo? Thanks so much

Good question, Stacia! Yes, corn is a grain, grains are not allowed on paleo, so most baking powders are not paleo friendly. However, you can make your own paleo baking powder with a recipe like this one. Hope this helps!
