Gluten Free Oreo and Peanut Butter Brownie Cakes

Gluten Free Oreo and Peanut Butter Brownie Cakes

Recently my friend John sent me this recipe. I converted it to Gluten Free.
These are super simple to make and are so good!!

For more recipes and tidbits please join me on my
Facebook Gluten Free Page:

Gluten Free Oreo and Peanut Butter Brownie Cakes:

32 Chocolate Vanilla Creme Gluten Free Cookies (I used Glutino Gluten Free Chocolate Vanilla Creme Cookies--- you will need to buy 2 packages but you will not be using all the cookies)

Spread about 1 tsp. of Peanut Butter on each cookie.
Top 1 cookie with a second cookie and place into a Silicone Muffin Liner that has been sprayed with Cooking Spray. (***See Footnote 1***) Line a
Cookie Sheet with a Silicone Liner. Place the Silicone Muffins on top of the Silicone Lined Cookie Sheet.
Making a total of 16 Double stacked Cookies.

Recipe for the Brownie Batter:

In a small pan over medium heat
Melt 1 Stick of Butter (½ Cup)
add 1 Cup Sugar... mix with a Wooden Spoon and let cool for a few minutes
add 2 Beaten Eggs
and 1 tsp. Vanilla

Place into a Medium Bowl.

1/3 Cup Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
½ Cup Gluten Free Flour (***See Footnote 2***)
½ tsp. Xanthan Gum
¼ tsp. Salt
¼ tsp. Baking Powder
Mix well.. if the batter is to thick slowly add 1-2 tsp warm water and mix thoroughly.
You want the batter to be a bit running and not to thick. Add the water slowly.

Using a 1 TBL. cookie scoop measure out 2 TBL. of the Brownie Batter over each cookie letting it run down the sides of the cookies.

Bake in a Preheated 350* oven
For 18-20 Minutes.

Cool for about 10 minutes then remove from the Silicone Liners. They will easily slide out. Cool completely on a wire rack.


***Footnote 1***
The first time I made these cookies I baked them in Paper muffin liners.. ½ of the cookies stuck to the Paper. I read online that this is a common problem. Many people suggested spraying either paper liners or tin foil liners with cookie spray so the cookies won't stick. I have always wanted to try the Silicone Liners,,, they worked beautifully and none of the cookies stuck.

***Footnote 2***
You can use the recipe below for Homemade Gluten Free flour mix
or buy a Pre-made Gluten Free Flour Mix
If your using a Pre-made Gluten Free Flour Mix check to see if it has Xanthan Gum,
if it does then you do not need to add Xanathan Gum to the Recipe.
Gluten Free Homemade Flour Mix for:
cookies, muffins, bars, brownies cakes, quick & yeast breads, rolls, buns and biscuits
I got this recipe at the Gluten Free Expo.

2 1/4 Cups Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free Brown Rice Flour
1/4 Cup Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free Potato Starch
2/3 Cup Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free Tapioca Starch
3/4 Cup Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free Sweet Rice Flour
1/3 Cup Cornstarch

Measure all the ingredients into a container. I used a spoon to lightly mix it together then put the cover on and shake well.
(Making sure its a tight fitting cover)

The original recipe called to add 2 tsp. Xanthan Gum
I did not do that, I like to add mine to each recipe individually.

I've checked the internet and I have seen that many people use this mix so I don't know who was the original person who made the recipe.
