Brownie Cookies

Love brownies? Love cookies? Then I have the recipe for you! Brownie cookies are pure perfection with a thickened brownie batter that is formed into cookies and baked.  They are so chocolate-y and delicious!

To make brownie cookies, you have two options – either from scratch or using boxed mix.  I included both recipes so that you can choose depending on what you are feeling like but I’ve gotta say, nothing tops the homemade version! I like to add chocolate chips to my brownie cookies but you can add in any of your other favorite brownie mix-ins instead!

Brownie Cookies - The perfect combination of cookies and brownies! Chewy, fudgy, and filled with chocolate - these brownie cookies are amazing!

Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Total Time 30 minutes


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 4 ounces chocolate (chopped)


  1. Combine flour, sugar, cocoa powder, and baking powder in a large bowl.
  2. In another bowl, whisk together the eggs and vegetable oil.
  3. Add the butter to a small saucepan set over medium heat. Allow it to melt, then add the chocolate and whisk until it is all smooth and melted.
  4. Slowly whisk the chocolate mixture into the egg mixture (don't add the chocolate all at once or you'll scramble the eggs).
  5. Once all of the chocolate has been added, whisk the wet ingredients until they are fully combined.
  6. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and fold them together, mixing until combined.
  7. Transfer the mixture to the fridge to chill for 15 minutes.
  8. While the dough chills, preheat your oven to 375 degrees F.
  9. Once the dough has chilled, scoop the dough out onto a parchment lined baking sheet (I used a 1/4 cup cookie scoop to make sure all of the cookies were the same size).
  10. Press the cookies down slightly to create a disc.
  11. Bake the cookies for 14-16 minutes.
  12. Allow the cookies to cool completely and then transfer them to an airtight container and store at room temperature for up to three days.

Meh. The cookies did not turn out nearly as beautiful as your photographs. They are dry, even though I cooked them for 12 minutes and not the 15 to 16. Overall I would say this is a two star or three star recipe. I will not be making them again.

Can I use stevia instead of regular sugar? Would it be 1 to 1 measure? My husband is a diabetic.
