Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Brownies. These have a thick gooey, fudge brownie underneath a layer of raw cookie dough. They are rich and indulgent.
Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Brownies – Low Carb, Grain/Gluten/Sugar-Free, THM S
I cut these cookie dough brownies into 16 pieces and I couldn’t even eat a whole one. They are one of those desserts that are so filling you only need a small piece to be satisfied.
I am so excited about this recipe. I was naughty and had a regular cookie dough brownie at a function at my kids’ school recently. Having a lack of willpower around baked goods is one of my pregnancy downfalls. I don’t even know where the other mom got the original recipe but this is my own low carb version of her creation. Now I can indulge in this delicious combination guilt free.
I have to admit I overcooked a batch of box mix brownies the other day. My girls were making a dessert to bring to a friend’s house for dinner while we were all trying to get ready for church. I checked them, raced upstairs to get changed, and promptly forgot about them. By the time the chocolate smell was wafting up the stairs, they were no longer fudgy or gooey. The kids didn’t mind but I was a bit disappointed. I’m a food blogger and sometimes I can’t even make boxed brownies.
I really had to restrain myself from just eating this cookie dough with a spoon. If you want to eat some go ahead and make a double batch so you have some for the cookie dough brownies and some just to eat! It is egg free so it is fine for snacking. If you love raw cookie dough as much as I do make sure to try my No-Bake Cookie Dough Cheesecake.
Once the brownies have cooled you just press the cookie dough on top. This could even be a one bowl recipe if you don’t mix up the brownies and cookie dough at the same time like I did.
Here is a great how-to video on making these fabulous brownies at home:
This is a great recipe to get the kids involved with. Mine love to help in the kitchen. The younger kids stir while the big kids measure out the ingredients. They all lick the batter. The trick is to use enough spoons so everyone gets their own to lick. That is one of the joys of being a child. Or an adult. I still love stealing a few tastes of brownie batter and sneaking a few chocolate chips right from the bag.
I hope you enjoy these fabulous, indulgent, healthy brownies!
