These are just right for satisfying that brownie/cookie craving. I highly recommend using the flax eggs, especially since the one time I tried to use the apple cider vinegar/baking soda substitution, it didn’t really go well (meaning they were kinda ugly and blobby looking). Also, do NOT be tempted to let these bake ‘just a few minutes longer’ (famous last words). I made this same mistake and it made them get really runny and totally not cookie like, so don’t be like me and do that.

Mexican Chocolate Brownie Cookies [Vegan]






  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 2 tablespoons flax egg
  • 6 tablespoons water
  • ½ cup white granulated sugar
  • ½ cup powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Pinch of salt
  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour
  • ¼ teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon nutmeg
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • Tiny pinch of cayenne pepper (like really tiny!)


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. In a small, microwave safe bowl, combine and chocolate chips and coconut oil and melt in the microwave for 1-2 minutes, until chocolate is melted, stir until completely melted. Set aside.
  3. In a medium bowl, combine the rest of the ingredients plus the melted chocolate mixture and mix with a hand mixer or stand mixer on medium, until dough comes together. The dough will be more of a batter/thick dough. Using a small cookie dough scoop, drop 2 teaspoon of dough per cookie onto the lined cookie sheets, about 8 cookies per sheet.
  4. Bake for 5-7 minutes and remove from oven. Do NOT let them overbake, they will become runny. Remove from oven and let cool before removing from the cookie sheet.
