Cookie Dough Flourless Brownie Pizza


I am an only child. Did you know that?

The stereotype surrounding only children is that we are typically stubborn and selfish, a product of being used to getting our way.

As I have gotten older and certainly since becoming a mother, I like to think I became more of a selfless person.

For the most part.

I have no problem telling you that I am completely stubborn and selfish when it comes to dessert.

I honestly think this is completely acceptable because why should I have to share my food and if I give you the no share disclaimer ahead of time, you received fair enough warning to order your own.

The only questionable selfish dessert habit I have is that I don’t really care (gosh this sounds mean but its true) what kind of dessert you may want as your birthday cake because if I am left in charge of selecting it, I will pick what I like and not what you may prefer.

The guy who likes to bring me flowers for no particular reason requested the other day that I make last week’s cookie dough flourless brownie pizza as his birthday cake this fall.


How pretty are this week’s flowers?!

While I smiled and appreciated how much he loved my latest dessert creation, I politely informed him that he was getting a chocolate fudge cake topped with rainbow cookies from my favorite bakery, Torta Fina.

The only thing I can maybe do is make this cookie dough flourless brownie pizza in addition to getting that chocolate cake as a compromise. Relationships are about compromise, right?

I gave you a sneak peak of this too decadent for words dessert creation the other day but it deserves full details so that you can make it too.

I knew the combination of Amanda’s flourless double fudge brownies and my cookie dough would be a winner.

I mean, the cookie dough alone was so killer when I made the samoa cookie dough bark back in the winter that it was time to bring it back to life with a new recipe.

Instead of baking the brownies as traditional brownies, I went with a round cake pan in order to make more of a dessert pizza.

As the brownie pizza was in the oven, I prepared my cookie dough.

A few minor adjustments to my original cookie dough recipe:

  • Increased ingredient measurements to have more cookie dough to go around the brownie pizza
  • Used dairy-free chocolate chips to make this recipe dairy-free
  • Added a scoop of coconut flour for fun

Let’s talk some stats before getting to the recipe:

Amanda’s flourless double fudge brownie recipe is naturally gluten-free. If you use dairy-free chocolate chips, it’s dairy-free too.

The cookie dough contains oat-flour; use gluten-free oats if you want a gluten-free recipe.

Both the cookie dough and brownie recipe use coconut palm sugar; I use a small amount of granulated sugar for the cookie dough but I am confident you can leave it out without really noticing.

Gluten-free, refined-flour free and dairy-free? Suddenly sounds like health food to me.
