Fudgy Oreo Vegan Brownies with Peanut Butter Swirl

Fudgy Oreo Vegan Brownies with Peanut Butter Swirl

Deliciously healthy, vegan brownies that are swirled with creamy peanut butter and loaded with Oreo cookies! These insanely delicious Oreo brownies are extra fudgy, made vegan, gluten-free and overall healthy!


Yum

Lets talk about Oreos [and you guys this is not an ad…I just really love Oreos but Nabisco if you are reading, I WOULD LOVE TO PARTNER ;)]. First of all, did you know Oreos are suitable for vegans? That’s right! They are completely free from animal products, however, if you are strict vegan, I have read that they may or may not have come in contact with milk. So that’s something to keep in mind. Oreos are not gluten-free though so if you are looking to make a gluten-free version of these brownies, be sure to use Glutinos cookies or your favorite gluten-free brand.


When I first set out to make these brownies, I had no intention of adding a sweet and creamy swirl of peanut butter but as I was nearing the end and about to toss these bad boys into the oven, I impulsively dropped a few tablespoons of peanut butter over the batter and swirled it around before finishing these brownies with mini Oreo thins. AND I REGRET NOTHING! These brownies are literally the best I’ve ever had! The fudge factor on these brownies are beyond compare!

  • 1/4 c natural peanut butter
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 100g dairy-free dark chocolate
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil, melted
  • 2 flax eggs (2 tbsp flax meal + 6 tbsp water)

  • 3 tbsp natural peanut butter

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 F and prepare a 6x6 inch pan with parchment paper both ways and leave an overhang for easy removal.
  2. First, prepare the flax egg by stirring together flax meal and water and letting sit for 10 minutes.
  3. Next, in a microwave safe bowl, melt the chocolate and peanut butter together. Stir in the maple syrup, coconut oil and vanilla and stir until smooth.

Mini Strawberry Galettes | Gluten-Free & Dairy-Free

Incredibly easy and grain free mini strawberry galettes. A healthy and simple summer treat made using only gluten free and dairy free ingredients. These mini fruit pies stuffed with juicy local strawberries, wrapped up in a flaky buttery crust and finished with a drizzle of honey.


Yum

What do you do when two pounds of strawberries are on sale at your local grocery store for $3.99? You buy ten pounds, make mini strawberry galettes and freeze the rest to use for future recipes. I hope you caught that foreshadowing I did there.


I can’t believe we are creeping into July’s double digits. It feels like just yesterday was Christmas and to make matters worse, Michael’s craft store has already put out their Fall decorations and I want to cry. I haven’t done one “summery” thing this year. It’s crazy how quickly you can get caught up in a work routine and before you know it, it’s July 8th, the summer is half over and you still haven’t put on a bikini time! I did manage to drive by the beach yesterday coming home from a photo shoot–does that count?


Yum

Enough about my boring summer and more about these juicy, gluten-free, strawberry galettes. If you are an incredibly simple baker and by simple I mean lazy, these galettes are for you!

Galettes are essentially pies for the simple folk. The best part about them? The more you mess them up, the more rustic they start to look. Basically, this is a fool proof recipe that tastes just as good as a well constructed pie.

Here are a few other of my favorite lazy pies…I mean galettes.

Blueberry Lemon and Thyme Gluten Free Galette – This rustic and simple blueberry lemon and thyme galette is a perfect way to celebrate spring time. This delicious galette recipe is bursting with blueberries with a hint of lemon flavor.

Rustic Gluten Free Galette with Dark Sweet Cherries – This delicious cherry gluten-free galette tastes just as wonderful as cherry pie and it so much easier to make!
