My friend encouraged me to veganize this recipe and here is what I came up with.
Triple Threat Bars (changed the name, not a fan of what they were formerly called…)
For the Brownie layer:
- 10 tbls veg butter
- 1 1/4 cups white sugar
- 3/4 cup cocoa powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- 4 tbls water + 3 tsp egg replacer
- 1/2 cup flour
For the Oreo layer:
- about 16 double stuffed oreos
For the Cookie Dough layer:
- 1/4 cup veg butter (at room temp)
- 2 tbls brown sugar
- 1/4 cup and 2 tbls white sugar
- 1 tbls water + 3/4 tsp egg replacer
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 cup + 2 tbls flour
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 cup chocolate chips
1. For the Brownie layer:
In a medium sauce pan, melt the butter over medium high heat. Add the sugar and cocoa powder once the butter is melted. Whisk to combine and remove from heat. Add the salt, vanilla and egg replacer. Add the flour and continue to mix. Set batter aside.
2. For the Cookie Dough layer:
Cream together the butter and sugars in a mixer. Add the egg replacer and vanilla, making sure to scrape down the sides of the mixing bowl. Add the flour, salt, baking soda and baking powder and mix on low until everything is incorporated. Fold in the chocolate chips. Set dough aside.
Bake at 350. Foil a 9 x 9 pan, coat with vegetable spray, firmly press down cookie dough.
Add brownie batter.
Bake for 40-45 minutes.
I don’t know what went wrong with these. The brownie layer never seemed to cook through. I left them outside for a bit (in the 20 something degree night) and that allowed me to cut them. I kept them in the fridge so they would stay firm. I’d try these again. They taste pretty amazing 🙂
