Cookie Brownie-- Yes its both of them!

Ahh America's two favorite baked goods cooked into one. Now, this isn't a blondie-- I wouldn't do that to you. This is a cookie with a brownie on top, baked in layers :-) I made these as cupcakes, which can be easier if you're cooking for a crowd. Also its important to put the cookie layer on the bottom, so that the brownies can be fluffy and rise a bit.


Cookie layer
2/3 cup Almond butter
2 teaspoons Vanilla
1 Egg
3 tablespoons Milk (almond, coconut- whatever floats your boat)
3 teaspoons Olive oil
1 tablespoon Stevia
1/4 cup Chocolate chips

Brownie layer
1 cup Cocoa powder
2 Eggs
4 tablespoons Olive oil
1 teaspoon Vanilla
1 tablespoon Honey
1 tablespoon Stevia
1 teaspoon Apple cider vinegar
1 teaspoon Baking soda

Preheat the oven to 350. Start with cookie batter: mix almond butter and eggs together in bowl. Next add oil, vanilla and milk and mix well. Finish the batter off with stevia and chocolate chips. Grease muffin tins and place about a tablespoon of batter in each cup-- recipe should make about 8-10 cupcakes.
Move onto the brownie batter. Mix cocoa powder with eggs, oil and honey, mix well. Next add vanilla, stevia when they are thoroughly mixed add apple cider vinegar and baking soda. The batter should be pretty thick as this is fudge like brownie. Add the brownie batter on top of cookie in cupcake cups, careful not to mix the two batters together. Place try in oven and bake for about 35 minutes or until a knife comes out clean. Enjoy!
