Chocolate Peanut Butter Brownies

My family is divided about these brownies. Half of us think that these are the most amazing thing ever, the other half is getting a bit tired of my obsession with chocolate and peanut butter. They’re grain free, firm and chewy like a brownie should be and the topping is sticky and sweet and full of peanut butter.
YUM!

Don’t worry if you side with the rest of my family, I’m working on a similar recipe that doesn’t contain any peanut butter at all.

Grain Free Chocolate Peanut Butter Brownies

Ingredients

  • 1 1/4 cup peanut butter
  • 1 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2/3 cup cocoa
  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda

Directions

  1. Place all ingredients into a large mixing bowl.
  2. Stir with a long handled spoon until just combined. (This is to keep the cocoa from flying around when you mix it.)
  3. Mix with an electric mixer for 3 minutes on high
  4. Pour into parchment lined cake pan. (Mine was about 7×9, weird Thailand size, 8×8 should work fine.)
  5. Bake at 350 for 30 mins or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.
  6. Alternatively, you can cook the batter in a greased waffle iron for 2 minutes
