Cookie Dough Brownie Bars

Everyone knows that if you turn up to a party/gathering/movie night with these you will be the talk of the town, the belle of the ball and everyone’s best friend (for the night anyway). These ultimate cookie dough brownie bars are so delicious and on top of that incredibly easy to make. Made with my Brownie 2.0 recipe as the first layer and a soft choc chip cookie dough as the second layer they are perfectly gooey and indulgent, all made without refined sugar and chickpeas in the brownie!

Top Tip: Store them in the fridge for optimum fudgey goodness!
