Hi . . . I made you a brownie . . . because I like you and I’m prrrreeeetttyy sure you like chocolate.
These brownies are seriously chocolatey, seriously fudgey and seriously topped with salty swirls of peanut butter.
Only the best for you my friend, that’s just how I roll. Totally taking care of my peeps (yes I just said peeps, go with it)
Wanna know something else . . . these brownies may very well be one of, if not the healthiest (and most delicious) brownies I have ever tasted.
And what makes them even better . . . if thats even possible at this point . . . you can just whip them up in your blender. No standing, stirring, whisking just measure, blend, pour and bake.
Which I love. Especially when you realise you have forgotten a special occasion . . . like your husbands graduation . . . on said graduation day.
Best. Wife. Ever!
These brownies are intense, which is what you want your brownie to be. So much so I initially cut them into 10 pretty generous size bars but after my first tasting I decided less is more . . . decadent, indulgent (secretly healthy) bite size brownies. Ah-mazing!
So pour yourself a glass of ice cold milk and go make these brownies already
PS – You should totally make these for fathers day this sunday
Peanut Butter Swirl Brownies
Inspired by this recipe from Sally’s Baking Addiction
Makes 20 delicious little servings
1/2 cup peanut butter, softened (I used PB2 peanut flour)
2/3 cup plain greek yogurt (I use Chobani 0%)
1/4 cup milk (I use skim)
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp instant coffee granules
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
2/3 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1/2 cup rolled oats (not quick oats)
- Preheat oven to 175’C (350F).
- Line a 9 x 13 inch baking tray with parchment paper and set aside
- Place all ingredients except peanut butter into a blender and blend until oats are ground and the batter is well combined. The batter will be very runny, don’t freak out . . . all part of the process baby.
- Pour batter into your prepared baking tray.
- Drop spoonfuls of your peanut butter randomly over the chocolatey batter and then using a knife or tooth pick carefully swirl it through the batter to make pretty patterns. Careful not to over mix
- Bake for 20-25 minutes or until the edges begin to separate themselves from the sides of the pan.
- Allow to cool completely in the pan, then slice and enjoy
