erfectly moist, decadent, and fudgy, these sinful Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Brownies will redefine your love for peanut butter.
I have eaten insane amounts of peanut butter brownies for the past two weeks trying to perfect this recipe for y’all. You’re welcome. This food blogging gig is hard work I tell ya! Good thing I love me some peanut butter.
I’m happy to report…I nailed it!
This peanut butter brownie recipe is going to become your newest addiction. It’s all things a peanut butter treat should be and rarely are – moist, dense, and totally decadent. I made these brownies with and without frosting, in an 8×8 and in a 9×13, with and without peanut butter and chocolate chips. This is my favorite combination by far.
The other batches were awesome, but not magical. I require magical these days.
I made a “brownie purist” version with absolutely no chips of any kind inside. It was good and totally an option for those of you who are like, “Oh HECK NO you’re not putting anything inside my brownie!” Do what you feel is right. I will not mess with anyone’s brownie needs for sure. I understand it is serious business.
Even after eating my fair share of peanut butter brownies, I coudn’t seem to to wrest myself away from the allure of this batch. Wicked good I tell you – wicked good.
Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Brownies
½ cup granulated sugar
1½ cups brown sugar
4 tbsp Challenge unsalted butter, room temperature
½ cup creamy peanut butter (I used Skippy Natural)
2 eggs, room temperature
1 tbsp vanilla extract
1¼ cup all-purpose flour
1½ tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 cup peanut butter chips
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 325F.
Line a 9 x 13 inch baking dish with parchment paper or lightly coat with cooking spray.
Cream sugars, butter and peanut butter together in a large mixing bowl.
Beat in the eggs and vanilla just until combined.
In a small bowl, combine the flour, baking powder and salt.
Stir the flour mixture into the creamed mixture just until combined. Do not over mix.
Stir in the peanut butter and chocolate chips.
Spread dough into the prepared baking dish and bake for 28-33 minutes or until an inserted toothpick comes out with a few moist crumbs. Let cool before cutting into squares.
