TASTEFUL THURSDAY: Cookie Dough Brownies


Every time I make these, they go over exceptionally well, and no one would guess they’re dairy-free. I adapted the recipe from Lindsay Landis, tweaking some things to make a dairy free version, and here it is! Cookie dough and brownies were my two favourite desserts growing up, and if you don’t like either, I may have an issue trusting you.

If you want to make these more traditionally– i.e., with dairy– you can easily sub, cup-for-cup, the coconut oil with butter and the almond milk with regular milk.
