Vegan Oreo Brownies

Oh. Em. Geeeee!

Yes, I feel strange writing that, but really I feel it's the only suitable way to describe this. Oreo Brownies. Seriously, can it get any better?! Oh wait, they're vegan too?! YES, Oreos are one of those "accidentally vegan" foods!

Vegan Oreo Brownies

I made these brownies years ago as a non-vegan, using lots of eggs and butter. Initially I wasn't too sure how I could make them vegan friendly. Then I remembered how well my Chocolate Orange Brownies turned out, and thought that with a little tinkering with the recipe I could make something just as tasty, but with oreos to replace the orange. 

These brownies are super gooey, but with a nice surprising crunch from the oreo. Seriously, what's not to like about them?! I can't promise promise you that these are in any way healthy (they're probably the very definition of the opposite of healthy) BUT I think that everyone deserves a treat every now and again. Everything in moderation, am I right?

As I'm writing this I'm watching heavy snowfall out the window, dreading going outside later and seriously considering picking up some chocolate on the way home. If it wasn't already clear, I think I may be a chocoholic! It can't just be me that always turns to chocolate whenever there's an inconvenience, be it big or small. For the last few weeks I've been trying to cut down on my sugar consumption, attempting to limit myself to only have sugar on a Friday evening and Saturdays (when I normally do my baking). So far, I've had varying success with this. Last week I broke this attempt when I had a particularly bad and draining day at work, turning to the Coop's "accidentally vegan" donuts (I almost always feature this on my Instagram story when I manage to find a lucrative bag of them!). Long story short, if anyone has any tips on how to cut down on their sugar intake, please let me know!!

Anyway, I hope you all enjoy this recipe for super tasty, insanely chocolatey and all-round delicious Oreo Brownies. If you give them a go, please send me pictures of them or use #susiechef on Instagram and Twitter
