Chocolate Brownie Monster Cookies (Vegan)
Updated: Mar 8, 2022
As you might have noticed I love Halloween baking so I need to share all the treats that I've made before the season is over.
Here another one: Chocolate brownie monster cookies made with oat flour and topped with chocolate buttons and marshmallow bites from Nilla Banana Pudding cereal!!
They are very soft and fudgy and monstrously delicious 👻🤤
I've adapted the recipe from Chocolate covered Katie but you can also check out my version in the section below the picture !
90g oat flour
41g cocoa powder
100g white or brown sugar
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
6 Tablespoons vegetable oil
2 Tablespoons milk*
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
50g dark chocolate chips
--- TOPPINGS ---
candy chocolate buttons
Nilla Banana Pudding cereal (marshmallow bites)
Preheat the oven to 325°F (160°C) and cover a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a large bowl whisk together all the dry ingredients: oat flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cocoa powder.
Stir in all the remaining ingredients: oil, vanilla, milk, sugar and chocolate chips. Mix until you get a thick batter that you can roll into balls.
Divide the dough into balls of the same weight (around 25g each) and place them on the prepared baking tray (I suggest baking 6 cookies at the time since they will spread so you need some space around them).
Bake for about 9 minutes (they are still very soft in the middle but it's okay since they keep cooking outside the oven; if some cookies lost their shape during the cooking process you can now reshape them with a rounded cookie cutter!)
As soon as they come out of the oven garnish the surface of the cookies with candy chocolate buttons and marshmallow eyes.
Let them cool on the baking sheet before moving them on a serving plate.
Melt a small quantity of chocolate in the microwave or on a double boiler and draw funny eyes shapes on the Nilla Banana Pudding cereal (marshmallow bites) with a toothpick.
I used lactose free milk but feel free to use whatever milk you have on hand, plant-based or not.
You can use milk or dark chocolate or even chocolate spread to draw the monster eyes on the marshmallow bites.
If you want to make them in advance you can refrigerate the dough balls for a day or so or even freeze them for a later use.

If you make it let me know! :)
