Peanut Butter Brownies

A while back I made these delicious better than box mix Brownies. They were great, and they have been my go to recipe ever since. Today, however, I decided to put a bit of a spin on the old recipe.

To be honest, it’s a very minor spin, BUT it does add loads of flavour—and for someone who isn’t such a big fan of chocolate, the nuttiness of the peanut butter takes these brownies to another level.

Peanut Butter Brownies
Makes 12-16 pieces, depending on how big or how small you cut them
Original recipe by lifeloveandsugar

3/4 cup Vegetable Oil 
1 1/2 cups Sugar
1 1/2 tsp Vanilla
3 Eggs
3/4 cup Flour
1/3 cup + 2 1/2 tbsp Cocoa Powder
1/4 tsp + 1/8 tsp Baking Powder
1/4 tsp Salt
4 tbsp Crunchy Peanut Butter

1. Preheat oven to 175-180C/ 350F and line or grease a 9x9 square baking tin.
2. Combine Oil, Sugar and Vanilla Extract and mix with a hand mixer or whisk. Add Eggs continue to mix until well combined.
3. Combine Flour, Cocoa, Baking Powder and Salt in a separate bowl. Then slowly add it to your wet ingredients until well combined.
4. Pour the batter into your pan. I added the spoonfuls of Peanut Butter right on top and left it as is; but, you can also use a knife to create peanut butter swirls within your brownies (all depends on your preferences).
5. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean. Let cool before cutting.
