How to make gluten-free chocolate sandwich brookies


The brookie is a cross between a brownie and a cookie. And it is divine! It is crispy/crunchy on the outside and soft and fudgy on the inside. Ooft!
When you sandwich two of these little circles of chocolatey happiness together with something equally heavenly, you get next level cookie happiness :).
We've gone with a creamy peanut butter filling, but if that's not your thing, switch that out for a chocolate buttercream. Give 'em a try. We very much doubt you'll tell us we're wrong!
This recipe makes eight sandwich brookies.
PREP TIME 10 minutes
BAKE TIME 10 minutes


For the brookies…

  • 60 g cocoa powder
  • 160 g caster sugar
  • 165 g Magical gluten-free plain flour blend
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 100 g chocolate chips/chunks
  • 160 g Stork for baking (tub), melted
  • 1 large egg

For the filling…

  • 50 g white chocolate buttons (or bar, chopped)
  • 100 g smooth peanut butter


For the brookies…

  • Weigh all the dry ingredients together into a bowl (cocoa, sugar, flour, baking powder, salt, chocolate chips/chunks).
  • In a separate bowl, weigh the Stork then heat it in the microwave in short bursts until melted.
  • Lightly whisk the egg in a third bowl.
  • Add the egg and melted Stork to the bowl with the dry ingredients and mix until everything is thoroughly combined and you can see no traces of the dry ingredients.
  • Shape the brookies into balls (16 x c40g) and then place on baking trays, leaving space between each cookie for them to spread slightly. Press down on each ball to flatten into a circle, roughly 5mm thick.
  • Bake in the oven heated to 175c / 155 fan for 10 minutes. Remove from the oven, leave on the trays to cool for 5 minutes then transfer carefully to a wire rack to finish cooling.

For the filling…

  • To make the filling, heat the chocolate in small bursts (no more than 30 seconds at a time) in the microwave until melted, stirring in between each burst. Add in the peanut butter and stir/beat vigorously until smooth.
  • Spread a small amount of filling onto the underside of eight brookies and then gently press a second brookie onto the filling to create your sandwich brookie. Repeat until all your brookie sandwiches are assembled.
  • Grab yourself a big glass of cold milk and get stuck in!
