What’s your favorite classic dessert? Brownies are definitely mine! Sure, cookies and cupcakes are tasty, but nothing beats the rich chocolate flavor of a freshly-baked, fudgy brownie. If I see a table full of desserts at a party, you can bet that I’ll be reaching for the brownies first. You really cannot go wrong with a brownie in my opinion. Even a sub-par brownie is still great!
Despite my never-ending love for brownies, I do admit that they can sometimes seem a bit plain. After all, they’re pretty much always the same, unlike cookies or cupcakes, where you can change up the flavor. Chocolate is delicious, of course, but eating the same thing over and over will eventually become boring, no matter how tasty the food is that you’re eating. Fortunately, there’s a simple way to escape the monotony of brownies: adding different layers or toppings! For example, you can add crushed Oreos to the top of a pan of brownies to give them a nice cookies ‘n cream flavor as well as a tasty crunch. It’s a simple way to make your good brownies amazing!
Vegan Oreo Brownies
Brownies are always delicious, but they can sometimes become a bit boring. Transform your traditional brownies into a deliciously decadent dessert by adding chunks of Oreo cookies!
- 2 tbsp ground flax
- 6 tbsp water
- 2 cups all purpose flour
- 2 1/2 cups powdered sugar
- 1 cup cocoa powder unsweetened
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 cup soy milk unsweetened
- 1 cup vegetable oil
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 10-11 Oreo cookies broken into pieces
Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease a 9 by 13 inch baking pan and line with parchment paper.
For the flax eggs: Stir together ground flax seeds and water. Set aside to thicken for 5-10 minutes.
Combine the flour, powdered sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl and mix.
In a separate bowl, whisk together the soy milk, prepared flax eggs, vegetable oil, and vanilla extract.
Add wet mixture to dry ingredients and mix until combined.
Transfer batter to lined baking pan and spread evenly.
Top with broken Oreo pieces.
Bake in preheated oven for 30-35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the brownies comes out clean.
Allow brownies to cool, cut into bars, and enjoy!

These were great!! It was the first vegan brownie I’ve made that didn’t crumble into a million pieces when you picked it up. My husband compared them to Little Debbie brownies. Definitely a keeper in my recipe collection!
I’m so glad you enjoyed them! Thanks for the feedback 🙂
What are chia eggs? There are no chia seeds in the ingredients list ?
Whoops, it’s meant to say flax eggs 🙂
Oreos are NOT vegan.
They do not contain any animal products. If you’re referring to palm oil, there are knockoff brands you can purchase made without palm oil. If you’re referring to bone char in sugar, I personally don’t nitpick on the processing methods of foods.
Loved these sooo much! Very dense and chocolatey, used dark chocolate oreos for even more chocolate!!
I’m glad you enjoyed!! And ooh great idea with the chocolate Oreos!
could we use almond milk instead ?
Of course! Any non-dairy milk will work
How many eggs does the ground flax and water come to?
It’s the equivalent of 2!
