Java-Infused Brownies [Vegan]

This Recipe is :

Dairy Free Vegan


Double Decker Brownies

  • 1 batch Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough
  • 1 batch Java Brownies (recipe follows)
Java Brownies
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 teaspoons instant coffee
  • 3 cups flour
  • 1 cup cocoa
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 cup soymilk
  • 1 cup oil
  • 1 cup dairy-free chocolate chips


Double Decker Brownies

  1. Begin by heating your oven to 350F and preparing a 9 x 12 baking dish.
  2. Prepare the Peanut Butter Cookie dough as directed. Press the dough into the bottom of your prepared baking dish. Place in the oven and bake for 15 – 20 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool thoroughly. That’s an important step and one I often try to push.
  3. Prepare the Java Brownie dough. Pour the brownie batter over the baked and cooled peanut butter layer. Return the pan to the oven and bake for 30 minutes.
  4. Remove from oven and allow to cool before serving.
  5. Enjoy!
Java Brownies
  1. Normally you’d begin a recipe for brownies by heating the oven and preparing a pan, but since this is the base for the Double Decker Brownies, we’ll skip that part. However, if you’d like to make these brownies sans the peanut butter bottom level, begin by heating your oven to 350F and spraying a 9 X 12 baking pan with vegetable spray.
  2. In a medium bowl combine the water and instant coffee. Stir a bit and set it aside.
  3. In a separate medium bowl, combine all the dry ingredients. Stir a bit and set it aside.
  4. Now, grab that bowl with the coffee water in it and add the soymilk and oil. Stir it a bit and then pour half of it into the bowl with the dry ingredients. Stir to ensure all the dry ingredients are incorporated and then add the remainder of the wet ingredients. Brownies are tender spirited so you don’t want to stir too much. Just make sure everything is well incorporated, then add the chocolate chips and you’re ready to bake!
  5. If you’re baking these solo, bake for about 40 minutes. You’ll know when they’re done because you’ll smell them throughout the house. That and you can use those tried and true tests like inserting a toothpick or lightly pressing the center of the brownies to see if it springs back. If you’re baking these as part of the Double Decker Brownie, follow the steps above for baking.
