Brownie Cookies

If you are in need of an easy-to-bake cookie recipe and are in the mood for chocolate, then do yourself a favor and bake these brownie cookies. They are SO good! And they are so simple; there’s a good chance you already have all the ingredients.

I added some rainbow chip sprinkles to give this batch of brownie cookies that cosmic brownie feel. 🙂 But could top these with other seasonal sprinkles, flaky sea salt (this is my favorite brand), or nothing at all. All options are delicious.

The only drawback to this brownie cookie recipe is you have to chill the batter for at least 30 minutes before baking. I know. It’s hard to wait when you’re in the mood for chocolate. Or maybe I’m the only one who just lacks patience. Ha. But I tried making these with no chilling time and it just didn’t work, so I promise it truly is necessary, I’m not just messing with you. 😉

You can also freeze the batter in balls and bake these individually or just a few at a time if you don’t want to share. Up to you!

Enjoy these brownie cookies and tag us if you make and share these online as I’d love to see. Happy baking! xo. Emma

  • These look so delicious and decadent! I wonder if I could replace the eggs with flax seed eggs.
    I recently wrote a blog post mentioning that and it’s been a while since I used a flax egg in baking.
    Maybe I’ll give it a try sometime!

  • I love that you can freeze dough to make individual cookies. Otherwise, I’d devour them all in one sitting.

    • Yes—let me be the cautionary tale on that. Ha.

      Also, the baked cookies are great the next day / that week. Great leftovers. So if you have too many and find yourself eating more than you should (raises hand high) then you can give leftovers to friends or send to your partners office, etc. 🙂

  • These look so amazing!! I’m going to try making them this weekend 🙂

  • These look SO good, I’m going to try to bake them with gluten free flour – I’ll let you know how I go! Mel x

      Which it should say in the recipe card but now I’m seeing that got left off somehow. Hmm. Thanks for pointing that out!

      • Thanks! We have a snow day today and made these with some added espresso powder. AH-mazing cookies!!

  • These look so fun and cute! My kids would totally love these!


  • Each morning after I read the headlines I come here, hoping for something to cheer me up. Chocolate cookies with fun sprinkles are exactly what I needed this morning. Probably tomorrow morning too. Thank you.

  • My favorite cookies of all time are your vegan chocolate chip pumpkin cookies but I make them with real butter and milk chocolate chips so I guess the vegan is out the window. Haha. These look yummy and like a great chocolate addition for my daughter’s unicorn birthday party.

  • These are super cute and look delish! These would be a fun Valentines Day treat to make!

  • Ummm, brownie and cookies, two of my favourite things together? Gimme! Looks so good! ❤️✨
