Off Grid Baking: Peanut Butter Brownies

 Last night we went for a little cruise, just down to the waterpoint and back but it was nice to be out on the water.

When we got back, there was just time for dinner before James's outing. We had cheesy chicken baked enchiladas followed by the peanut butter brownies I'd made the other day. These are an unexpected success. Really simple and surprisingly tasty. Plus, no saturated fat, all the fat is from the peanuts.

Recipe from from here.

  • 225g crunchy peanut butter
  • 200g bar dark chocolate , broken into pieces
  • 280g soft light brown sugar
  • 3 medium eggs
  • 100g  plain flour 
  1. Set aside 50g each of the peanut butter and chocolate. Heat oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4 and line a 20cm square baking tin with baking parchment. Gently melt remaining peanut butter, chocolate and all the sugar in a pan, stirring occasionally, until the sugar has just about melted. Turn off heat and use a wooden spoon to beat in the eggs one by one. Stir in the flour and scrape into the tin.
  2. Melt reserved peanut butter in a pan, until runny, then drizzle over the brownie. Bake for 30-35 mins until it has a crust, but the middle still seems slightly uncooked.
  3. Melt reserved chocolate, drizzle over the brownie, then cool in the tin before cutting into squares.

  1. Correction - you say plain flour - should be self-raising. But they look soooo good!

    1. Nope, I used plain flour and they worked perfectly. :)
