These Best Ever Gluten-free Monster Cookie Brownies are truly life changing. A dream fudgey brownie bottom topped with a monster cookie top for the ultimate healthier brookie recipe.These Best Ever Gluten-free Monster Cookie Brownies are truly life changing. The ultimate healthier brookie recipe with a twist.

I told myself I was going to make a little desserty something for us this morning. A couple hours later and I am making these insanely decadent and delicious cookie brownie things that have all of our favorites in them.

Let’s start with the brownie layer shall we… I use my Healthy Flourless Brownies recipe, which is still one of the most popular recipes on the blog ever. It is better than the boxed brownie mix. And it can fool anyone who doesn’t usually love healthier desserts. It is so perfect fudgey and chocolatey and just dreamy.

Then on top of the brownies, we have a huge monster cookie layer on top. I use my Gluten-free Monster Cookies recipe to make it and instead of making them into individual cookies, I spread it across the brownie layer.

And I know what you’re thinking…this is way too decadent of a dessert to eat. But this recipe is flipping life changing. It is the best healthier “brookie” recipe with a twist to it with the monster cookie flavor. There is really nothing not to obsess over when you combine peanut butter, chocolate and some candy M&M type things you know?!

I hope you guys love this recipe as much as we do over here. Let us know what you think in the comments below!

  1. These were INSANE! Instead of hard candies, I added chopped peanut butter cups💯. The bites of oats were so chewy and good. My whole family gobbled these up!
