Lazy Gluten Free: Chocolate Chip Cookie Brownie Bites

Chocolate Chip Cookie Brownie Bites


My dream was to be able to provide a resource to all of you who follow a gluten free diet, whether it be by choice or necessity like myself, so when I started A Lazy Girl’s Guide to Living Gluten Free back in July 2012, I had no idea how much it would grow over the months to follow. Many of you have provided such wonderful feedback, and I have been able to watch my dream grow and begin to thrive. Every comment and message I receive has been so heartwarming for me, and I am thankful every day to be able to help all of you to enjoy your life without worrying about dietary restrictions. This is a little sappy, I know, but I thought it was appropriate with the approach of Valentine’s Day to share how much I appreciate all of you and your amazing support! Seriously though, I couldn’t do this without you.


Now on to the food. I love brownies, and I love cookies, so what happens when the two are combined? Magic. When I came up with the idea for these little chocolate chip cookie brownie bites, I knew they were going to be like little pieces of heaven. Man was I right; they were super easy, super good, and a total chocolate-lover’s dream!  Anyone would be hard-pressed to guess they are gluten-free. Although ‘bite-size’ is kind of an understatement, who is going to complain about a larger dessert? Definitely not me.


Chocolate Chip Cookie Brownie Bites

You will need:
1 box Betty Crocker Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookie Mix
2 eggs
1 stick (1/2 cup) butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 package Udi's Dark Chocolate Brownie Bites

Heat oven to 350F and grease 10 cups in a muffin pan.

1) Prepare cookie mix according to package directions: Stir oil, vanilla and egg in medium bowl. Stir in cookie mix until soft dough forms (dough will be crumbly). 

2) Drop about 1 tablespoon of dough into each of the 10 greased muffin cups. Press dough down until well packed (it may come up the sides, this is totally fine). 

3) Place 1 dark chocolate brownie bite into each cup on top of the pressed cookie dough. Press bites down slightly into each.

4) Distribute the remaining cookie dough evenly among the 10 cups, making sure to press the dough down around and on top of each brownie bite so that it is well covered with dough.

5) Bake for 8-10 minutes, or until edges of each 'bite' begins to turn a medium-dark golden brown. 

6) Once done baking, remove from oven and let stand for about 5-10 minutes. You want the cookies to harden a little before trying to remove them from the muffin pan or they will be too crumbly and will fall apart.


7) To remove from pan, slide a knife around the edges of each cookie-brownie bite to make sure it isn't stuck to the pan. Gently turn pan over onto a wire rack and allow each bite to fall out. When all are free from the pan, flip each bite over carefully to right side up and allow to cool completely.

Enjoy warm with your favorite french vanilla ice cream!
