Cookie Muffins

This was one of my completely spontaneous recipes; I literally made it as I went along. I had some cookie dough that was a little dried out from being in the fridge. I didn’t want it to go to waste, but knew it wouldn’t make the best cookies on it’s own. I’m so glad this happened, because these “muffins” ended up being a great treat! They have a good crunch on the outside, but are supper fluffy on the inside. The base is not overly sweet, but the cookie dough pieces and Oreo at the bottom provide a nice pop of sweetness and flavor. And to answer everyone’s question, yes, normal Oreos are actually vegan.

Base:

1 1/2 c flour

1 1/2 tsp baking powder

1/4 tsp baking soda

1/4 tsp salt

1 tbsp flax + 3 tbsp water mixed

1.5 tsp vanilla

1 c vegan butter

1 c sugar

1/4 c + 2 tbsp c almond milk

12 oreos

cookie dough crumble (below)

Mix flour, baking soda, and salt in a medium bowl. Beat vegan butter and sugar together in a large bowl. Add flax mixture, vanilla, and almond milk until incorporated. Fold dry ingredients into the wet mixture. Set aside. Fold 3/4 of the cookie dough crumbles into base batter. Line/Grease a cupcake tin. Place an Oreo in the base of each cupcake liner. Top each muffin with remaining dough crumbles. Bake for about 22 minutes, or until lightly browned on top.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Crumble:

1/4 c coconut oil

1/2 c brown sugar

2 tbsp sugar

2 tbsp almond milk

1 tsp vanilla

3/4 c + 2 tbsp

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp salt

1 bars of dark chocolate chopped (amount by personal preference)

Combine flour, baking soda, and salt in a medium bowl. Mix coconut oil and sugars until fluffy in a large bowl. Add almond milk and vanilla. Fold dry ingredients into the wet mixture. Use your hands to break the dough into crumbles. Feel free to make ahead and leave in the fridge until ready to use.

Tips/Things I would Change:

  • Use store bought/premade cookie dough to save some time if you’d like
  • The base of these are pretty unique, but I think it would actually be good with a fruit filling, also.
  • You can also make this into a loaf, just place the Oreos side by side at the bottom.
