I bake to sweeten life

Peanut Butter Brownies


  • ½ cup unsalted butter, softened
  • ½ cup white sugar
  • ½ cup brown sugar, packed
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs
  • ½ cup peanut butter, chunky
  • ¾ cup all purpose flour
  • 1 cup  peanut butter chips
  • ⅓ cup peanuts, chopped (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Line a 9×9-inch baking dish with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugar until light and fluffy, approximately 4-5 minutes. Beat in salt, the egg and the peanut butter.
  3. Sift flour into the bowl and stir it in, mixing until just combined. Add in peanut butter chips and peanuts; stir to evenly distribute.
  4. Pour batter into prepared baking dish and spread into an even layer.
  5. Bake for 20-25 minutes, until the brownies are just just lightly browned at the edges and the center is set. Cool in the pan before slicing.
