Peanut Butter Brownies | Recipe

Last month I did a post about some Creme Egg Brownies I'd made and it seem to go down really well! I thought I'd share another recipe with you today as you all seemed to enjoy the last one, this is another brownie recipe. I seem to have found something that I'm pretty good at baking so I've been making brownies a lot recently. My favourite brownie recipe, which is in my opinion better than the creme egg one, is for peanut butter brownies. I love peanut butter so putting it inside a brownie just makes so much sense to me. This is another really easy recipe as well and I only had to buy 2 things, everything else is just basic baking ingredients that most people will already have so this is a quick, easy and affordable treat to make!

I found this recipe on BBC Good Food, which is one of my favourite websites to find recipes!

250g Crunchy Peanut Butter (if you prefer smooth that would work as well)
200g Dark Chocolate
3 Eggs
280g Soft Light Brown Sugar
100g Self Raising Flour


1. Put 50g of the chocolate and 50g of the peanut butter to one side to use later to finish the brownies off and heat your oven to Gas Mark 4/180C/160C Fan. Also line a square baking tin with baking paper.

2. Melt the remaining larger portions of chocolate, peanut butter and sugar in a pan, making sure you keep on stirring it occasionally or constantly like I did. Keep on doing this until the sugar has melted into the mixture. Turn off the heat and allow the mixture to cool for a little bit, not too long though. Stir in your eggs one by one with a wooden spoon and then stir in the flour before putting the mixture into the baking tin.

3. Melt the 50g of peanut butter in a microwave in 15 seconds bursts until it it is runny. Drizzle it over the mixture before placing the baking tin in the oven. Bake it for about 30 minutes until it has a crust on the top but still seems a little uncooked in the centre.

4. Finally melt the remaining 50g of chocolate in the microwave in 15 second burst until it is runny and then drizzle that over the top of the brownie. Leave it to cool in the tin before cutting up. I cut mine into small fingers after taking photos as this is a very sweet treat so you don't need much to satisfy you.


I personally really love these and think they are the perfect little afternoon snack, or pair it in the evening with a hot chocolate and a good film!

Let me know if you decide to make this!
