Vegan Peanut Butter Brownie Crumbl Cookies

If you love peanut butter and chocolate, this vegan cookie is for you! Even if you haven’t tried the brownie Crumbl cookies yet, you will love this remake. A thick chewy chocolatey brownie-like cookie stuffed with peanut butter? What’s not to love!

I’ve become really fond of vegan cookie remakes. (If you couldn’t tell, here’s all of my vegan cookies!) I feel like it’s not actually too difficult to get an egg replacement for cookies, and I recently found some great vegan butter options (which you can shop here!) Once you get those basics taken care of, vegan baking isn’t very difficult, nor is it expensive! In fact, lately my local vegan options have been less expensive than their animal by-product counterpart.

Veganism aside, this remake of brownie Crumbl cookies is delicious no matter what your dietary preferences are.

Unless you have a nut allergy, then I am sorry!! You could try this recipe with sunflower seed butter, as I am curious to see if that works but I haven’t tested it yet. So, nut allergies aside, this dairy-free and egg-free brownie cookie recipe is going to rock your world. It’s basically the best chewy brownie with a crackle topping in cookie form. It is miraculously fudgy but still holds together really well! Not to mention it is stuffed with a peanut butter filling. That is the best part in my opinion!

The topping of these vegan peanut butter brownie Crumbl cookies is easier than you ever would have imagined, too. It’s just melted vegan chocolate and melted peanut butter!

If you can’t decide between a brownie or a cookie, this brownie cookie is for you! As always, be sure to tag me on Instagram @maggiebakesgrace if you make this recipe or are inspired by the creation!

Ingredients
  

Brownie Cookie

  • 1/2 cup softened vegan butter
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tbsp white vinegar
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 3 tbsp non-dairy milk

Peanut Butter Filling

  • 2 tbsp softened vegan butter
  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 2/3 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 - 2 tbsp non-dairy milk

PB & Chocolate Topping

  • 1/2 cup vegan chocolate chips melted
  • 1/4 cup creamy peanut butter melted

Instructions
 

Brownie Cookie Dough

  • Preheat oven to 350 Degrees Fahrenheit.
  • In a small bowl, mix together your vinegar and baking soda to create a "vinegar egg". Meanwhile, grab a large mixing bowl. Add your vegan butter, sugar, and vinegar egg. Beat until smooth. Stir in the all the dry ingredients until almost smooth - then add the non-dairy milk last just until the consistency is moist enough to form soft dough balls.
  • Once the dough is complete, let sit in fridge while you make your peanut butter filling.

Peanut Butter Filling

  • In a medium bowl, beat together all filling ingredients until smooth. Let sit in fridge for 5 minutes.

Cookie Assembly

  • Once dough and filling has chilled for a few moments, use a large cookie scoop to scoop 1/4 cup of cookie dough. Divide that 1/4 cup chunk of dough into a 2/3 chunk and a 1/3 chunk. Flatten the 2/3 chunk into a 1/3 inch thick disc then add some of the peanut butter filling on top. Roll out the 1/3 chunk to cover the peanut butter filling to form one big cookie that is stuffed with peanut butter.
  • Repeat that step until you're out of dough and pb filling. Bake at 350 F for 10-12 minutes - DO NOT OVERBAKE. Let cool COMPLETELY before handling. The cookies will harden more when they cool.

Topping

  • Once cookies have cooled, melt your chocolate chips and melt your peanut butter.
  • Spoon 1/2 - 1 tbsp of each on top of each cookie and let cool completely to "harden". Store in fridge or at room temp. Enjoy!

Guide to Healthy Vegan Chia Pudding

Welcome to your guide to making the best vegan chia seed pudding! Chia pudding has been my go-to snack for a long time, and lately I’ve been having loads of fun with different flavors! Move over basic snacks. Creations like Cookies ‘N Cream and PB & Berry make this healthy snack extra fun!

I mean, how gorgeous are those cups of goodness?! In my opinion, the ideal chia seed pudding is nice and thick yet creamy, almost like tapioca pudding! We don’t fear sugar here, so adding maple syrup or a sweetener of choice is very necessary for it to be an exceptionally enjoyable experience! Once you have a great base recipe, the opportunities are truly endless.

The Best Chia Pudding Base

No secrets needed, I’m sharing it all with you! The best base, in my opinion is 4 parts liquid to 1 part chia. So if you’re batch making this for the week you can do 4 cups liquid and 1 cup chia seeds. Then you can add as much or as little sweetener as your heart desires. I prefer using a liquid sweetener like maple syrup because it mixes in the pudding more evenly. An important step here is to add a touch of vanilla & salt to your base as well. They really elevate the flavor.

That’s it! That’s your base!

Once you create your base recipe, let it refrigerate for 4+ hours or overnight. The longer it sits, the thicker it will become. THEN this is where the fun comes in! Toppings galore! When you have a base recipe, you can add whatever toppings you like.

My viral PB&Berry Chia pudding just adds non-dairy yogurt, melty peanut butter, and warmed berries. I also added powdered peanut butter to the base recipe because yes you can customize! If you are allergic to peanuts, I would highly recommend this recipe but with powdered almond butter and melted almond butter. What a treat!

My other new favorite flavor take is Cookies ‘N Cream. It’s still vegan and can be gluten-free (with my homemade oreos!) and feels way more indulgent, almost like dessert for breakfast! It could even be served as a healthy dessert. Layered with non-dairy yogurt, chocolate date spread, and more Oreos, this is a recipe for the ages!
