So these beautiful match made in heaven peanut butter and chocolate brownies include just that, wholesome yumminess:
- Pure cacao powder – rich in magnesium, potassium and iron!
- Natural peanut butter – high in protein
- Oats – high in fibre
- Honey – healthy sweetener alternative
I swear my kids were really patiently waiting for me to make these AND take the pictures too. Like a pack of hyenas waiting for the photo shoot to end before scoffing these down. But who blames them? These brownies are really decadent and indulgent. If you love peanut butter these will definitely be right up your street, although incase of a peanut allergy then other nut or seed butter works perfectly. The nut butter given the brownies a level of fudge that is usually gained by a lot of sugar and butter which is the original way brownies are typically made.

Peanut butter brownies
- 1/2 cup oat flour ( I just blended regular rolled oats)
- 1/3 cup cacao powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda (or 1 teaspoons apple cider vinegar )
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 150 grams dark chocolate
- 1 large egg
- 1/3 cup honey
- 1/2 cup Greek yogurt to make these dairy free use dairy free yogurt OR use another 2 eggs
- 1/3 cup natural salted peanut butter + 2 tablespoons for swirling on top (if unsalted add a 1/4 teasoon salt into the peanut butter)
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
Preheat the oven at 180*C
Blend the oats in food processor or blender until a fine flour texture.
In a bowl, mix together all the dry ingredients.
In another bowl, mix together all the wet ingredients. Pour the wet mixture into the dry and gently fold.
Pour batter into a baking tray lined with parchment paper. Add a few spoons of natural peanut butter on top of the batter and swirl it around.
Add a few chunks of dark chocolate chunks on top of the swirls for the melted chocolate effect!
Bake for 17 mins at 170*C. Once baked let the brownies cool for 20 mins before eating as it will be very hot. Once cooled, keep in fridge or air tight container. They get more fudgy after a couple of hours and even more the next day. ENJOY 🙂
*to make these dairy free leave out the yogurt and add another add or sub with dairy free yogurt*
