Brownie cookies, flourless, yet chewy and fudgy, like a brownie! Yet NO eggs and NO flour and NO oil, and only one bowl needed, and small batch recipe! And easy to mix in one quick bowl! Also called Flourless Chocolate Cookies, Crinkle Cookies, or Mudslide Cookies. Say hello to your new favorite easy vegan brownie cookie. Small batch, makes 3 huge cookies.
Line a quarter-sized cookie sheet with parchment paper.
Preheat oven to 350 F.
Mix up the 6 tbsp of sugar, 2 tbsp + 2 tsp of cacao powder, baking soda and salt in a small bowl.
Add in the 1 tbsp and 1 tsp of aquafaba and vanilla. I used a hand mixer to blend it to a creamy texture. This batter is not like traditional cookie batter, more like a brownie batter.
Spoon three equal-sized spoonfuls into three far-apart spots on the cookie sheet. Think social-distancing for cookies.
Bake the cookies around 6-`0 minutes, possibly 12 if your oven is off. But look at them through your oven glass if you can and take them out as soon as they look dry and cracked on top. It's easy to over cook these.Let them cool on the pan for three minutes, and then peel them off carefully. They are like a merignue, so will be a bit sticky.
We store them for a few days on the counter in a container, and the best news is even after a few days, they remain chewy. Of course, you can freeze them long term. Enjoy!
Before baking, you can stir in a few chocolate chips. My original test batches had pockets of chocolate that way, but the addition does kind of ruin the uniform cracking so if you just want more chocolate and they don't have to look "perfect', go for it!
Please note:The recipe hinges on a perfect ratio between the dry and wet, so you'll see my ingredients are pretty precise in this small batch recipe. For instance, it calls for 2 tbsp + 2 tsp of cacao, written in two different lines of the recipe. It also calls for 1 tbsp + 1 tsp aquafaba, again writeen in two different lines of the recipe. I had to write each on two lines because my recipe card on my blog didn't allow that two measurement option. Just do as I say, and everything will be fine.Troubleshooting:Didn't work for you? Don't give up. You probably only need to slightly tweak your aquafaba, cocoa or oven temp time to work with your ingredients and conditions. Check my Troubleshooting section at the end of my post.
