Category Archives: Brownies

I spent part of Memorial Day Weekend at my Grandma’s lakehouse in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin.  A lot of my family was there, so I decided to bake some chocolate peanut butter brownies from a recipe I found here.  They were simple to back and turned out well!  The batter was pretty thick, so I really had to spread it in the pan. I got a little lazy with appearance, so the top isn’t super smooth and pretty, but  taste is more important, right? They tasted good enough that I couldn’t take a picture once they were cut because they were already eaten!

Chocolate Peanut Butter Brownies

Ingredients:

1 cup all-purpose flour

2 tablespoons cocoa powder

1/4 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 teaspoon baking powder

1/8 teaspoon salt

3/4 cup granulated sugar

1/4 cup packed dark brown sugar

1 tablespoon canola oil

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

2 large eggs

1/3 cup creamy peanut butter

1/3 cup semisweet chocolate chips

Directions:

– Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 8X8″ pan with cooking spray. (I only had a 9X9″ pan, so I used foil to make a smaller pan).

– Combing flour, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a bowl.

– Combine sugars, oil, vanilla, and eggs in a mixing bowl.  Beat until combined.  Slowly add flour mixture and beat until just blended.

– Mix in peanut butter and chocolate chips by hand.

– Spread batter into prepared pan.  Bake for 25-28 minutes, or until toothpick comes out of center with just a few crumbs.  Cool on wire rack completely before cutting.
