Chocolate-Peanut Butter Brownie Cookies

Author - Alyssa Rimmer

Chocolate Quinoa Brownie Cookies via Queen of QuinoaI fully intended to post a recipe for healthy fish tacos today, but chocolate got the better of me. That tends to happen. Especially when it involves a recipe like this. Decadent chocolate-peanut butter brownie cookies.

Perhaps the chocolate bug is hitting because our impending move is starting to stress me out. My kitchen is boxed up. My cabinets are empty. My plates, bowls and glasses are all wrapped in newspaper, packed tightly in boxes. My gluten-free flours stored and organized in bags. Pretty much life as I know it is on hold for the next week.

So why not eat some chocolate, right? And you can't go wrong with cookies like this.

Chocolate Quinoa Brownie Cookies via Queen of Quinoa.jpgAll I really wanted was to make a batch of soft, chewy chocolate cookies. I used a random flour combination, whatever I had that hadn't been packed yet, fully expecting them to fail, but what came out of my oven was sheer brillance (not to toot my own horn or anything).

Chocolate-Peanut Butter Brownie Cookies.

Think gluten-free brownies, but in cookie form. Rich, dark chocolate bites of heaven. Soft and pillowy, oozing with melty chunks of chocolate chips. Ooey-gooey deliciousness. But wait there's more. An even better surprise waiting for you. These chocolate cookies are the best of two worlds – chocolate AND peanut butter. A faint hint of creamy peanut butter mixed with all the chocolatey goodness, these chocolate-peanut butter brownies cookies are simply sensational.

It's time my friends. Grab a glass of milk and dunk a cookie (or two).

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a small mixing bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients. Set aside.
  3. In a medium mixing bowl, add the peanut butter, oil and sugar. With a hand mixer, beat together until creamy. Add the egg and beat until combined.
  4. In batches, add the dry ingredients to the wet and mix until a stick dough forms. Fold in chocolate chips.
  5. Spoon the batter on the prepared baking sheet, and smooth with the back of a metal spoon.
  6. Bake in the center of the oven for 10 - 12 minutes, until the cookies have started to brown but are still tender to the touch.
  7. Cool on the cookie sheet for a few minutes, then transfer to a wire rack and cool completely (or eat one now if you simply can't resist!).

  1. Hi, I love following your recipes! I haven’t seen quinoa flour in the store and wondered, can I grind up the organic pre-rinsed quinoa I bought? (I do that for oatflour all the time).
    thanks!

    • Yes ma’am, you absolutely can! I would suggest toasting the grains slightly to give them a better flavor and then grind them up. It works best for me in a high speed blender, but you can also do it in a spice grinder or food processor. Enjoy!!

  2. I noticed that the quantity of these is very small – can the recipe be easily doubled or tripled without having to alter any of the ingredients? Thank you!.

  3. I cannot wait to try this recipe! I am about one month gluten free, only because I read Wheat Belly and found his arguments compelling. I feel better than I have in ages! Who knew?
