Quick and Easy Cookies from a Brownie Mix.

Remember my post about the brownies I was able to snag for .40 a box? Well, I grabbed a couple of boxes and made brownie cookies from them.



Very addicting.

And with .40 cent a box brownies….CHEAP!

Meets all my standards for an excellent cookie recipe.


The ingredients are easy. Brownie mix. Eggs. Oil. And flour. How did I forget to put the flour in this picture? drat.


To up the insane pleasure of these cookies you can add chocolate chips. And nuts. But I’ve got those who balk at nuts in cookies at my house. Wait. Maybe I should have added some nuts…


I just stir these up by hand using my trusty wooden bread spoon.


Then I roll them into 1 inch balls, put them on parchment lined cookie sheets and put ’em into the oven.

Here’s the actual recipe:

  • 2 17.4 ounce brownie mixes

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 12 tablespoons light olive oil  (or whatever you like the best)
  • 3 eggs, beaten
  • 12 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup nuts, chopped (if you like them)

Look at your box of brownie mix. Some boxes are bigger than others. If you are using a 21 ounce box of brownie mix you’ll either need to add another egg or at least a couple of tablespoons of water.

The making:

1. Preheat oven to 350°F.

2. In a medium bowl, combine all ingredients. Stir until well blended. I do not use the nuts.

3. Roll into 1 inch balls and place on a parchment lined cookie sheet . Bake for 9 to 10 minutes.

4. Once cookies have lost their ‘gloss’, yet still feel soft to the touch, remove from oven. DO NOT OVER BAKE THESE COOKIES .

5. Let cool 1 minute, then remove to racks to finish cooling.


Now this is where most people would create a beautiful cookie shot to help entice you to try this recipe. But it’s getting late and I still have a couple of therapies to do with Parker.

So you get this shot.

And my total promise that these cookies are worth your time.
