How To Make Peanut Butter Brownies

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. and line an 9 x 13 inch baking dish with parchment paper.
  2. Place flour, cocoa powder and salt in a large mixing bowl, stir to combine. Place hot melted butter, oil, and sugars into a large mixing bowl. Whisk until well combined, a good minute. Stir in eggs and vanilla, whisking another 2 minutes. Slowly stir wet ingredients into the dry ingredient bowl, gently stirring just until batter forms.
  3. Spread half of the brownie batter into bottom of baking dish. Use a cookie scoop to scoop peanut butter evenly over top of brownie batter, then use a knife or offset spatula to spread evenly over batter. Spoon remaining brownie batter over top of peanut butter layer and carefully spread evenly.
  4. Bake for 40-45 minutes, until mostly baked through. Remove from oven and let cool for at least 1 hour before cutting into squares. Serve room temperature or warmed with a scoop of ice cream.

    Looks yummy!
    But Am I right you didn’t use melted chocolate on this brownies?
    Cause as what I saw to other brownies recipe they are using melted chocolate.

    Hey, Jenny! Love your recipes….especially when I want to truly indulge in decadent desserts!

    My question: Isn’t there a way to print this peanut butter brownie recipe WITHOUT 4 pages of color pictures?

    I wanted to have the recipe, but printing all that makes it almost expensive to have and not very easy to keep in a file either.

    Thanks!

      Hi Matt, if you scroll down to the bottom of the post in the recipe card there’s an option to click print there. That will just print the recipe for you. Let me know if you have any problems with that.
