Brownie Cookies!

Easy and delicious Brownie Cookies – the gooey softness of a brownie, mixed with the delicious of a cookie! 

Shall we start this blog post by saying it’s been nearly two months since I have posted a cookie recipe, and I have missed them. I love them. I love all things cookie related, and I am entirely OBSESSED. So, here’s another! 

After asking for requests, I realised so many of you wanted a brownie related bake, but also so many wanted a cookie related bake… so I thought why not combine the two?! I have so many cookie recipes on my blog now… but nothing like this!

My NYC Cookies have absolutely stolen the show recently with so many of you baking them that I genuinely can’t keep up – my NYC Chocolate Chip Cookies have become the highest rated blog post on here, and my Triple Chocolate NYC Cookies are quickly catching up. 

Those cookies are designed to be a cookie, they are designed to have that texture that you want… whereas these? They are literally mini brownies, but in the shape of a cookie. It’s like the ultimate combination of delicious! 

The base recipe is fairly similar to a genuine mash up of a cookie and brownie mix. Not as many eggs as a full brownie mix, but more than just cookies. The other measurements are different, the texture when you mix it is different – but so so good. 

If you are after a Crunchie cookie, these are 100% NOT the ones for you. These are designed to have a soft centre, and almost be cake like I guess you could say! The base mixture is so incredibly easy to make and you can just whack whatever you like inside them!

I went for white chocolate chips this time as I love how they look because of it, but you can use all dark, milk, white, chocolate orange, you can add some nuts etc! I just like the chocolate chips as it adds to the gooey texture. 

You can see from the photos that they are softer cookies, and you can see how perfect they would be fresh out of the oven. I always have to say that cookies last a certain amount of time, but seriously these were eaten SO QUICKLY. You wouldn’t think that there’s only two people in our house. 

Usually I give my bakes away to family, friends, or my work colleagues… but these I didn’t want to share. You can find the recipe below! Any questions, leave a comment below! x

  • 115 g Unsalted Butter/Stork
  • 200 g White Granulated Sugar
  • 50 g Cocoa Powder
  • 2 Medium Eggs
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 175 g Plain Flour
  • 1/2 tsp Baking Powder
  • Pinch of Salt
  • 200-300 g Chocolate Chips/Chunks


  • Preheat the oven to 200C/180C Fan/Gas Mark 5, and line two large trays with parchment paper.
  • Melt the butter until liquid.
  • Melt the butter until liquid. Add the melted butter, sugar and cocoa powder to a bowl, and beat for a couple of minutes.
  • Add in your eggs and vanilla extract and beat again.
  • Add in the plain flour, baking powder and salt and beat until a brownie looking cookie dough is formed.
  • Add in the chocolate chips and fold through.
  • Scoop/portion your batter onto the trays. A 5cm ice cream/cookie scoop works well as the mixture is quite soft!
  • Bake the cookies in the oven for 10-12 minutes. They should spread slightly, but not too much.
  • Once baked, let them cool slightly, but they are best enjoyed warm.


  • You can use any type of chocolate chip in these. I used a mixture of milk and white chocolate. 
  • You can use light brown sugar, or dark brown sugar in place of the granulated sugar.
  • These Cookie Scoops (affiliate link) are ideal for the job and have three sizes! I use the middle size for these cookies.
  • These will last for 4-5 days after baking, but honestly they will be eaten before then.

    Made this with my little brother and sister, turned out wonderful! We used leftover melted butter from making dinner that was a tad burnt but didn’t want to put it to waste! Still the taste was great, and they loved the chocolateness… Thank you

    I loved these brownie cookies! I was wondering can I freeze the cookie mixture before baking? If so how long can I freeze the mixture for?

    • Jane's Patisserie
      February 18, 2021 at 8:26 pm

      Not for these as the batter is too soft – I would freeze after baking!

    Hi! I’m making these cookies to go with my christmas cards to my friends this year and they look so good! However, i know my boyfriend is not a huge fan of brownies and I was wondering if I could leave out the cocoa powder from a part of the recipe and make regular chocolate chip cookies with that? I don’t have the ingredients to make two recipies.. thanks in advance!♥️

      This recipe really is designed to be brownie style and I can’t imagine it would be that nice without? I would recommend my NYC Chocolate chip cookies by far over these without cocoa powder x

    How much orange extract would you use to make them chocolate orange brownie cookies?

    • Jane's Patisserie
      December 13, 2020 at 4:18 pm

      It depends how orangey you like it, but 1tsp!

    I love this recipe, it is so easy and like all of your recipes they just work perfectly every time. After making it several times, I experimented and made a peanut butter cups version. Now a firm favourite. Please could we get a few more peanut butter recipes?

    I was hoping to use one of your recipes for a “homemade cookie jar” for christmas gifts this year. As all the dry ingredients would be in a jar together would this recipe work? or do you have any suggestions for ones that would work.
    Love all of your recipes!
    Thank you!

      I don’t have any cookie recipes that are a throw it all in at once recipe (because I find sometimes it doesn’t mix okay) – but it may still work fine! x

    Best brownie cookie recipe ever. I just can’t get enough. These are most definitely my downfall in my weight loss journey! 3 stone down but I think I’m putting some of that back on 😂

    I ‘winged it’ and used light brown sugar in the recipe and my son loved them. 😊😘

    Can you make the batter ahead of schedule and leave (tightly covered with cling film for around 4-5 hours) at room temperature till ready to bake?

    • Jane's Patisserie
      October 31, 2020 at 9:58 pm

      I would leave it in the fridge, not room temp!

    Mmh, not sure if I have done this right. I used exactly what you said in the recipe but the mixture is a big lump. Hard to scoop. I baked for 12 min and it looks raw…like its not baked at all.
    What did I do wrong?

    • Jane's Patisserie
      October 21, 2020 at 11:34 am

      That definitely sounds like something has been measured incorrectly – this mixture is a lot wetter than my normal cookie recipes because of two eggs etc! However, all cookies will continue to bake whilst cooling, so they definitely don’t need longer in the oven.

    • Jane's Patisserie
      September 27, 2020 at 4:42 pm

      You definitely can’t leave it out as it’s quite integral to the bake, and I would recommend my other cookie recipes x

    These are delicious but the mix was so wet that they spread out very thinly, not like the pic. Need to buy some medium eggs for next time!

    • Jane's Patisserie
      September 24, 2020 at 4:08 pm

      Its meant to be a thick gloopy mixture almost, so the chances are yes it had too much moisture x

      Not with these – the batter is too soft x

    Saw the recipe on Saturday and have made them tonight. Very easy to make and look fantastic. Really looking forward to trying them once they have cooled down enough. Thank you 😊.

    Hi Jane,
    When you say beat, what attachment do you mean I should use? the whisk attachment? – or the one normally used for making cookies?

    • Jane's Patisserie
      September 22, 2020 at 9:10 am

      A beater attachment – the name depends on the mixer, but not the whisk!

  • Rachel

    Hi Jane, is it ok to make these in my mixer at all stages – I.e. when I bake brownies I would gently fold in the flour rather than use my mixer but if I can use the mixer, it’s certainly easier. Thanks

    • Jane's Patisserie
      September 20, 2020 at 11:54 am

      For these you can – it doesn’t take much mixing at all, but these can be used in a mixer x

  • Antonia Turner
    September 19, 2020 at 8:26 pm

    I don’t know why but mine have spread so much they are incredibly thin and not cookie like at all 🙁

    • Jane's Patisserie
      September 20, 2020 at 11:55 am

      That can happen due to the butter, or too much egg – they do also need to be put in the oven straight away but the mixture should be lovely and thick like a thick cake mix so shouldn’t spread too quickly x

  • Sam Wood
    September 19, 2020 at 6:24 pm

    What would you recommend to use as a vegan egg substitute for this mixture? Flax eggs? I’m always telling my friends about your amazing cookie recipes and would love to bake these for my friends, one of whom is vegan!

    • Jane's Patisserie
      September 19, 2020 at 7:24 pm

      Yes I reckon flaxseed – it works well in other cookie recipes so I don’t see why it wouldn’t work for these!! x

    I can’t wait to try these! What would be a good alternative if you don’t have a scoop?

    • Jane's Patisserie
      September 19, 2020 at 7:26 pm

      Spoons, but they may be less uniform!

    • Jane's Patisserie
      September 19, 2020 at 11:19 am

      As this mixture is a lot softer and a brownie like consistency I wouldn’t recommend it – they can be frozen once baked however. x

    Can you freeze these before baking? I love making (and eating!) your cookie recipes and I tend to hand them out frozen so friends and family can enjoy them warm too.
