Autumn Oreo Brownies

Ingredients

  • 2 egg substitutes I use a chia seed egg = 1 egg equals 1 Tbsp. chia flour and 3 Tbsp. water so double that for 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon coconut oil – for lightly oiling the pan
  • 2/3 cup whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder – unsweetened
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 4 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup peanut butter – creamy
  • 3/4 cup coconut sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 24 oreos – in the autumn colors

Instructions

  • Mix the chia eggs and set aside. – A chia egg is actually made with chia seed meal/flour not the bare seed. The way you make meal/flour is by grinding the chia seed in a processor such as one for your coffee beans or a spice grinder. I use mine to strictly grind seeds so that I do not mix flavors. Grind until it is a fine meal. I do about 4 ounces at a time and keep it in a little freezer safe canning jar – in the freezer. When I need a Tablespoon or so it is all ready to go.
  • Lightly oil an 8″ x 8″ baking pan with coconut oil.
  • In a medium bowl mix the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt together.
  • In a large bowl use a Hand Mixer and beat the oil, peanut butter, brown sugar and chia eggs mixture together.
  • Add the vanilla and mix.
  • Add in the flour mixture – half at a time.
  • Pour half of the batter into the prepared baking pan and smooth out evenly to all edges.
  • Layout 16 oreo cookies – 4 across and 4 down.
  • Dab the rest of the batter onto each cookie. Then lightly spread out the batter evenly without disturbing the cookies.
  • Coarsely chop about 8 Oreos (use your discretion) but leave some a little chunky. Sprinkle all over the top layer of batter. Lightly press in with the palm of your hand. Just so there is a better connection between the batter and some of the crumbled cookies.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 23 to 28 minutes.
  • Cool on a wire rack.
  • I cut the first slice a little from the left side so that I think I am cutting through the center of the first cookie. Do this in all directions.
  • The little bit of the first and last slice can be a quick snack for you or the hubby or the kids.
  • You will have 12 perfectly sliced brownies with the Oreo cookies showing at each corner and you will have those leftover edges which equal 4 brownies.
