Bourbon Biscuit Brownies

I am a biscuit and tea wrapped up in bed under my duvet reading a book kinda girl and I love a good bourbon biscuit.

I have been thinking about these brownies for a long time and I have no idea why it took me so long to make them because now that I have I found my new favourite brownie.


This brownie recipe is my gluten free recipe and is the recipe I use all the time for my brownies no matter what.

There are bourbon biscuits all the way through these brownies, so in the mixture, layered in between the brownie mixture and ofc on the top of the brownies.


This recipe can be adapted to your favourite biscuits so if you’re an oreo fan or even something simple like ginger nuts would work in this recipe.

I didn’t do this but wish I had and that was once I have baked them, I had added a chocolate drizzle across the top of the brownies.
