Here’s the thing… I have to be in the mood for peanut butter. It seems like I don’t even have a passing thought about it for a few weeks and then all of a sudden it’s like I NEED PEANUT BUTTERRRRRRRRR!

It’s a little bit crazy.

And it’s usually a very specific peanut butter craving when it strikes. It’s not, oh hey I could really do with a peanut butter something today… 

No. It’s more like, um I need a peanut butter and jelly sandwich with cheetos this instant or I will surely die. 

Yeah that sounds about right. And for the record it’s not cheetos on my sandwich, it’s cheetos with my sandwich. As in, a bite of sandwich and then pop a cheeto in real quick. Don’t knock it til you’ve tried it all of you frosty + french fry people. (bleh!)

And then other times it’s more like oh what I wouldn’t do for a peanut butter cup. One. One reeses peanut butter cup.

This week it was a peanut butter brownie. But it had to be super chewy, fudgey, chocolatey, and drizzled with extra deliciousness. Bonus points if it’s flourless.

Oh heyyyyyy. . .

Even if you’re not a PB person, how on earth can you turn that down??? ^^^^

If you’re a BIG peanut butter person (the breakfast lunch and dinner type – you know who you are.) don’t be afraid to smear a little extra (or a lot extra…) right on top.

Like so….

  • ½ cup sugar
  • ½ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla
  • scant ½ teaspoon salt

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line an 8x8 inch pan with foil or parchment and grease with nonstick spray.
  2. Melt the butter, 2 cups chocolate chips, and ½ cup peanut butter in a microwave safe bowl at ½ power for 2 minutes. Stir until smooth (return to microwave for another 20 seconds at a time as needed until completely melted and smooth).
  3. Add chocolate mixture to a large mixing bowl. Add eggs, sugar, cocoa powder, vanilla, and salt and mix until smooth. Transfer mixture to prepared pan and bake for 30-40 minutes until set and an inserted toothpick comes out mostly clean. Allow to cool completely.

Those are gorgeous! And who doesn’t love peanut butter and chocolate?

Those look delish. What kind of peanut butter do you use? Would it change the consistency of the recipe if you used a natural pb versus like jiffy or skippy?

    Hi Jamie, I haven’t worked much with natural peanut butter so I couldn’t say but I think I just used an off-brand regular creamy peanut butter for this recipe and it works great! 🙂

Wow, these look beyond amazing! Pinning these, yum 🙂

And here I thought I was the only person in the world who loves cheetos with their PB&J!!! Perfect combo! And peanut butter and choc are another amazing combo. These look to die for, ITS SO FUDGY!!

These were really good. I might have baked a little long though as I expected a little more gooeyness. OR I ate too many of the chocolate chips before melting them:)

looks great
health in your hand

looks so good…do you store them in the fridge or at room temperature in an air tight container? Do they freeze well?
Thanks

    Hi Amrita, I haven’t tried freezing these but I’ve stored them in an airtight container at room temperature up to a week. 🙂

Could I possibly substitute a chocolate bar instead of the chocolate chips? I’m all out of semi-sweet chocolate chips!

    I’m sure that would work okay!

These look awesome! Do you have the nutritional info for them by chance? What’s a serving size and how many grams of protein, fat, and carbs?

Oh my goodness these look wonderful! I can’t wait to try these! If it’s cool with you, I’d like to add this to my weekly Pinterest round up. Happy blogging!

Wow, you weren’t kidding! These brownies are crazy fudgey and rich! I have been totally craving a decadent brownie and these have been on my ‘must-make’ list for a while now. Made them tonight and needless to say, my chocolate craving has been totally satisfied!!!

    Aren’t they to die for??? Definitely deliver that fudgey-ness that you want. Glad you liked them Tracy!!

Is 1 tbsp. vanilla correct? Seems like a lot compared to other brownie recipes I’ve made.

Ummm … first of all, my sister and I were the only people that I knew of who grew up eating PB&Js with Cheetos, so hi! Nice to meet you! So delicious, right? Tastes like our childhood.

Anyway, this sounds divine. I’ll be trying this very very soon.

    Oh my gosh – girls after my own heart! Welcome to my pb+j+cheetos world!!

I have made this twice and it is amazing! My coworkers eat it like it is going out of style!!
I did do two things differently-
1. I don’t have an 8×8 Pan so I use a circle pan- I just bake it for 50 minutes.
2. I don’t drizzle the topping , I pour it over to make it look like frosting and put in the fridge for a good hour. My co-workers say that is there favorite part.

Thank you for this recipe it is great!

These sounds amazing? Would this recipe do alright doubled and baked in a 9×13? Some do well and some don’t, so I thought I’d ask if you’ve tried it before. Thanks!

Boy do these sound good. Can’t wait to make these, thanks for sharing this recipe.

Crap I forgot the butter. Hope they still work out.

what is the calorie content per serving?

These were delicious thank you for sharing the recipe. We had guests joining us for dinner that couldn’t have gluten. So happy I came across this recipe on Pinterest. We ate them with vanilla ice cream so I didn’t put frosting on them. I would probably do less cocoa next time. They were a little too rich and bitter. So, so good! Even my kid who claims he’s allergic to peanut butter, he’s not, he just really dislikes it, couldn’t get enough of these fudgy brownies. Yum!

My new favorite “go to” brownie recipe. Turned out absolutely perfect. Thank you so much for sharing this excellent recipe.

These are amazing. I have now made them twice and they have come out perfect each time! As someone who can’t eat gluten, these make me feel like I am breaking all the rules. Which really is so much fun. Thanks for the recipe! Have a blessed day!

Made these this evening, they are wonderful! I used dark chocolate chips but followed the recipe otherwise! I didn’t really find the peanut butter flavour comes through all that much but it may be different once they have cooled.

These look amazing! You hadn’t tried freezing them 2 years ago, but just wondering if you have now. I’d like to make them for Passover and the more I can do early, the better! 🙂 Thanks!

Has anyone tried this with dark cocoa powder?

Has anyone tried this with dark cocoa powder?

Would it work to use powdered peanut butter in place of the peanut butter and would you have add an extra egg or butter for moisture, definitely cut down in the calories, thanks

Made these today for my best friend who is gluten intolerant…. can’t believe how amazing they are! So decadent and delicious. They’re perfect, and so simple! Thank you for such an amazing recipe.

I made them a few days ago and they are very good, my husband said this recipe is a keeper, delicious.

Delicious!

this was put under a kosher for passover list; this is not kosher for passover because you can’t use vanilla on passover.

Making these for passover tomorrow. Thanks for the recipe!

    Sounds like a great idea!! I hope that you enjoy them!! For sure let me know!
