Oreo Cookies – The showstopper, in these Oreo Brownies. A few cookies are added into the batter and the remaining are used to top the batter.
Semi-Sweet Chocolate – This makes the brownies gooey and chocolaty. Always use good quality chocolate, for the best taste. The bad quality will just make your brownies taste funky. You can also use dark chocolate.
All-Purpose Flour – The base is made with all-purpose flour. You can use other flours too for healthy alternatives, but it will alter the taste and texture.
Vanilla Extract – For that slight hint of vanilla, which is a must in brownies and tea cakes.
Other Ingredients – Some of the basic brownies ingredients such as Unsalted Butter, Castor Sugar, and Eggs. These all ingredients when combined in the brownie batter gives you soft and fudgy brownies.
Each and every ingredient has its own role in making these oreo brownies perfect, therefore do not miss them or use their substitute.

Frequently Asked Questions
The quantity of butter and chocolate in this recipe is more than the flour, which makes them less cake-like and fudgier. And therefore you will have gooey chocolate flavor burst in your mouth, as soon as you take a bite.
Yes, you can use any other crunchy and chocolaty biscuit to make these Brownies.
I will recommend you make these delicious brownies from scratch, but if you’re short on time or ingredients you can absolutely use your favorite brownie mix to make Oreo brownies.
Make the brownie batter following the package instructions. Add half of the broken biscuits in the batter and top the batter with the remaining ones. Bake and enjoy it.
For a healthier alternative, you can always opt for whole wheat flour rather than all purpose flour. The texture and taste are slightly different, but they do taste good.
But the ones with all purpose flour are a little softer as compared to the whole wheat flour ones.
Oreo Brownie Variations
Oreo Flavours – Here, I have used the basic Oreo, but you can also use the different flavors of the Oreos available in the market such as Mint, Peanut Butter, etc, which adds a slightly different taste.
Chocolate Chips and Cocoa Powder – Instead of using semi-sweet milk chocolate, you can even use chocolate chips and cocoa powder to make these brownies. You can also go for other chocolate options such as white chocolate, dark chocolate, butterscotch, or even peanut butter chips.
Coffee – You can add in some instant coffee powder in the batter and mix, to get a slight coffee flavor in your Chocolaty brownies.
Eggless – You can substitute eggs with Apple Sauce, Flax Seed Eggs, Yogurt, or even Mashed Bananas. Adjust the amount of sugar, with the option you choose to use.
Also, the texture of the brownies might differ with the use of these substitutes.
