Remember when PETA tweeted that Oreos are vegan, like a month ago? Well, in theory, yes they are vegan since the filling is canola oil based..BUT since they may come in contact with other milk based products during production – Oreos may possibly have trace amounts of milk and cannot be vegan certified. #NowYouKnow.
The good news is that if you only have a slight intolerance to dairy products you will probably be fine. If you’re severely allergic then I suggest you stay away! If you want to make these brownies completely dairy free and vegan friendly, simply omit the oreos and you will still have a delicious “Brookie”!
So, what is a Slutty brownie? A slutty brownie is a sinful concoction of cookie, Oreo and brownie – in that order.
These slutty brownies have been lightened up with the addition of swerve sweetener (a natural, zero calorie sugar substitute) and made vegan with the use of flax eggs and vegan protein. Looking for a gluten free variation? Simply omit the Oreos or substitute with a gluten free knock-off.
For the cookie layer, combine vegan butter and sugars in mixing bowl and blend until smooth. Add in flax egg and vanilla. Combine all dry ingredients before mixing with wet ingredients. Gently stir in 2 tbsp chocolate chunks.
Line 8x8 pan with parchment paper. Spread cookie dough evenly onto bottom of pan. Evenly place 9 oreos on top of cookie dough.
For the brownies, combine butter, melted dark chocolate, and sugars in mixing bowl and blend until smooth. Combine all dry ingredients before mixing with wet ingredients. Evenly spread brownie batter on top of oreo layer.
Place in oven or bake for 20-25 minutes, until center no longer jiggles.
