Ingredients:

  • Brownie layer:
    • 2 large ripe bananas, mashed
    • 1/2 cup creamy salted peanut butter
    • 1/3 cup cocoa powder
    • Optional: chopped chocolate or chocolate chips to mix and garnish
  • Cookie dough layer:
    • 2 cups almond flour (sifted)
    • 1/3 cup creamy salted peanut butter
    • 1/4 cup melted and cooled coconut oil
    • Optional: chopped chocolate or chocolate chips to mix and garnish
  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and line a baking dish with parchment paper.
  2. For the brownie layer, in a large bowl, mix the mashed bananas with the peanut butter until smooth. Gradually stir in the cocoa powder, which may take a few minutes to fully incorporate. If desired, stir in chocolate chips for added sweetness and texture. Spread this mixture evenly in the prepared baking dish.
  3. For the cookie dough layer, combine the sifted almond flour, peanut butter, and melted coconut oil in a separate bowl. Mix until you obtain a homogeneous and sticky dough. If using, stir in the chocolate chips. Form balls of dough and place them on top of the brownie layer, pressing lightly to flatten them.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes. Let the streams cool completely in the pan, this is crucial for them to set properly.
  5. For an extra firm texture, place the cooled streams in the freezer for an hour before slicing. This step ensures that they are perfectly firm and easy to cut.
  6. Serve as is, or reheat and enjoy with a scoop of vegan ice cream for an indulgent sundae experience.

Enjoy these revolutionary vegan Brookies, a simple yet stunning dessert that combines the best of both worlds, ensuring that every bite is as memorable as it is delicious!
