Three o’clock cravings in the office were never quite so easy to satisfy, that is until Gerard Touchard from Experimental Creative Cooking introduced me to his Brookies. This new product is an Aussie remake of an American creation, melding together everything you like about brownies with a more practical coffee companion – the cookie.
By fusing a chewy cookie with the rich, fudgy taste of a decadent chocolate brownie, Touchard has made the perfect coffee companion. It’s also gluten free, and before you turn up your nose, even as a confirmed flour fan, I really rate Brookies! The right-on ingredients list includes dark Belgian chocolate, free-range eggs, organic quinoa flour, coconut sugar and organic coconut oil, making them better for you than most treats you’ll pick up in cafes.
While mine were kindly delivered by Touchard himself, you can find your Brookies at cafes including Brooklyn Hide in Surry Hills (address below), Little Hopper at Eveleigh or Black & White Espresso on Hunter Street in the CBD. Experimental also have a full list of stockists on their website HERE.
