Ingredients – What you need for this brownie recipe
Butter is essential to bind but also to give that buttery flavor we love. For this recipe, you will need 3/4 cup of butter that is softened at room temperature. Unsalted butter is best for this recipe so you can control the flavor.
Because you are using unsalted butter this is where you can control the flavor. You will only need 1/2 teaspoon is all you need to cut through the sweetness.
Brown sugar will help to give that chewy texture we know and love when it comes to this recipe. it will also help to get that golden brown color. You only need 2 1/2 cups of it and it will produce incredible fudgy brownies.
The white sugar will add a great deal of sweetness to these decadent brownies. You don’t need as much granulated white sugar as you do brown sugar, just 1/2 cup, but it is enough to make these sweet and delicious.
You need three eggs for this recipe. As these have a brownie texture they will be more fluffy and light and the eggs will help to bind and get the best texture for this delicious brownie recipe. The egg yolk will help with the golden color.
You can’t go wrong with the vanilla flavor when it comes to brownies. While the golden oreos have a vanilla flavor this will help to enhance that throughout every bite. You need 1 tsp for this recipe.
When it comes to dry ingredients this is one of the staples you will find in most baking recipes. Flour provides the base and structure for this recipe. We like to use all-purpose flour and you will need 1 1/2 cups. When measuring the flour make sure it is sifted before adding it to the other ingredients.
As this has a slightly different texture and is a more substantial bite to it, the baking powder helps with the baking process and will enable that texture. You need 1 cup of baking powder for this recipe.
White chocolate chips
You can’t go wrong with adding chocolate to most sweet things, and the white chocolate works so well with the vanilla flavor and the Golden Oreos. You will need 1 cup of white chocolate chips.
Now the star of the show, the cookies that are in an elite category. These vanilla Golden Oreos are perfect with these brownies and add extra crunch with every bite. You will need around 15-20 Golden Oreos.

How to make the Golden Oreo Brownies
Gather all of your ingredients together and then make sure they are measured out and ready. You will want to preheat the oven to 350F, and prep a 9×11 baking pan with baking spray ready for baking. You could use parchment paper if you haven’t got any baking spray.
Blend the butter in a medium bowl then look to add the brown sugar and white sugar until combined together. You can do this yourself with a rubber spatula or a hand mixer. Now add the eggs and vanilla, stirring well so that you can ensure they are thoroughly combined together.
Now you will want to mix in the flour, baking powder, and salt. Then fold in the chocolate chips to make sure they are evenly distributed. Now your brownie mixture is ready.
Pour the brownie batter into your prepared pan and spread evenly. Then you will want to add a layer of Golden Oreos. Use the whole ones for this. You could crush a few to add to the top layer. Sprinkle the chopped Oreos into the smaller spaces so that the whole brownie layer is covered.
Bake in the oven for 35 minutes until the brownies are set. Be careful when removing the brownie from the tin you will want to ensure nothing sticks to the bottom of the pan. Let them cool on a wire rack before cutting.
Take the Oreo Brownies to the next level
Get some extra white chocolate chips and sprinkle them across the cookie layer. This will add an extra chocolate flavor. You could also use milk chocolate instead as that will work well with the vanilla flavors.
These golden oreo brownies will also work well with peanut butter flavors. They will make peanut butter oreo brownie bars and they will taste amazing. You could add a little bit of peanut butter sporadically across the cookies to give that extra gooeyness to these brownies. Use your favorite peanut butter brand or whichever nut butters you love. They will all work well.
Add some crushed oreos to the brownie mixture for an extra bite.
