Here's one I made quite a few months back now but still remains in my memory. This is the perfect recipe for when you can't decide between a brownie and a cookie. It's really chocolatey with a dense brownie texture but a slight crunch of a cookie. Simple and delicious.

 melt chocolate (I added cooking chocolate as I ran out of chocolate chips) 

 brookie mixture 

 freeze for 15 mins before baking

1 tablespoon oil
approximately 5g (1 teaspoon) of butter
365g chocolate chips
2 large eggs
150g light brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
60g plain flour
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt

  • Melt oil, butter and chocolate chips in a bowl over a pot of simmering water. 
  • In a separate bowl, whisk the eggs, sugar and vanilla extract.
  • Fold the chocolate mixture into the egg mixture. 
  • In another bowl, whisk the flour, baking powder and salt together. 
  • Add the flour mixture to the chocolate mixture and stir until combined. 
  • Pour the batter into a shallow pan and freeze for 6 to 8 minutes until the batter sets and hardens slightly (Do not exceed 15 minutes freezing time otherwise the batter will be too frozen)
  • Preheat oven to 180C. 
  • Line 2 baking sheets with greaseproof paper.
  • Scoop out the cookie dough using a small ice cream scoop or a tablespoon and place on the prepared baking sheet.
  • Bake for 10 to 12 minutes until the top looks dry and cracked. 
  • Allow to cool completely. 


  1. Haha what a great name for your creation! I love the dense texture of a brownie in anything..whether it be a cake a brownie or a cookie!

  2. OMG!!! Lush or what?!!? These look like my kind of cookies.

  3. What a great idea - crisp outside and rich gooey inside. They look really chocolatey too!

  4. I've never heard of a brookie before, how awesome! These are fabulous:)
    *kisses* HH

  5. Ooh what a clever combination! I like that idea. Sometimes you want goo but sometimes you want crunch-but always, you want chocolate! :P

  6. Yum! I often have this dilemma.

  7. talk about delicies. These look very delicious!

  8. LOL @ brookie! That's cute and a great idea! Looks wonderful!! :)

  9. Wow, a brownie and a cookie roleld into one - yum, I'm sold!

  10. Cool, I like the idea of a cookie-brownie hybrid!

  11. Oh my, I've never heard of a "brook" but that looks incredible. I bake with gluten free flour and have had terrific luck with brownies - can't even tell any difference.

    I would hope I'd have a similar outcome with these goodies. Thanks for the creative recipe! Can't wait to try it out with my girls
