The eggs held bind the cookies together. I have not tried using a Vegan egg replacement in this recipe. However, I have had success using unsweetened applesauce in place of eggs previously. See these Eggless Chocolate Chip Cookies for more tips and tricks.

Both gluten free brownie mix and regular brownie mix work well. Everything from Betty Crocker to Ghirardelli to Trader Joe’s boxed mixes can be used.

A little flour helps thicken the dough. Both gluten free 1 to 1 flour and all purpose flour work.

Use a neutral flavored oil. Avocado oil, vegetable oil, and light olive oil are great options.

A little vanilla extract adds a classic cookie flavor.

Add more chocolate chips and a pinch of sea salt if desired. When in doubt, always add more chocolate!

Expert Tips & Tricks

Both gluten free brownie mix and regular brownie mix can be used.

This recipe calls for 16 ounces of brownie mix. Some brownie mixes are 20 ounces. Since 16 ounces is 2 cups, measure out brownie mix and either discard or save any extra mix.

If desired, add a pinch of sea salt to the cookie dough.

Cookie dough will resemble traditional chocolate chip cookie dough except it will be chocolaty. The dough itself may look a little more greasy than regular cookie dough. This is due to the oil.

Cookie size determines baking time. For larger cookies, like the ones shown here, bake for 10 minutes. I used a cookie scoop and it made 8 large cookies.

For smaller cookies, bake only 8 to 9 minutes.

Bake cookies only until the middles are slightly set. These cookies are meant to be gooey!
