Method

  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 the microwave on High for 45 secs, or 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.

Made these today and were simple and easy to make, with not much washing up. Which is always a bonus! Only cooked them for 15 in a fan over becuase i adore really squidgy brownies. The texture was perfect but didn't really taste of chocolate...

Easy to make and they are delish... I used a bit of cocoa as I only had 100g of chocolate and had to substitute some the soft light brown sugar for about 50g of dark muscovado sugar.

Amazing. I too made them wheat and dairy free and love how easy that was to do. I agree with cooking times being a tad too long but that just means I have an excuse to sit by the oven watching them cook in our cold house =P
Thank you for providing the recipe for all my friends birthday presents for this year!!

These are heaven! So easy to make and quick. I can see them being a source of weight gain if I'm not careful!

Divine!
Two things to note;
(1) the eggs do start to scramble as you add them to the hot choc/peanut butter mix, but stir like crazy and this is not an issue.
(2) cooking time needs to be reduced to 20 mins
Lovely to have a brownie recipe with no butter!

I've made these twice. I've used 2 different types of peanut butter, but i find it doesn't really melt, but is more of a paste. Even so, they come out really well. The second time, i used a mixture of milk and dark chocolate and it's still fine.

It turns out quite 'crisp' on the outside and soft in the middle. So it's a good recipe for slicing into neat squares and transporting.

I used a slightly smaller tin and baked for 40 minutes for thick gooey brownies - an absolutely brilliant recipe, will use time and time again.

delicious - however only added 230g of sugar, and found that sweet enough (however peanut butter used already had sugar in it) really quick and easy to make! went down really well with family!

Disaster, as soon as I added the egg it all frothed up and scrambled it....a disgusting mess and waste of chocolate and peanut butter...very disappointed :-(

Deeeeelicious! Made them last night for my family coming for dinner.They went down a treat, and the few extras were taken home in "doggy bags". Definitely will be making again!

Easy to make and very tasty. Even my husband who doesn't like peanuts wolfed them down! Cooked for just under 30 mins and would prob cook even less next time for added goo!

Totally scrummy! Only cooked for 30 minutes but I think that was too long. They were delightfully chewy and tasty but getting towards burnt around the edges. Will definitely make again but cook for 20-25 mins next time. Freezing half of them so I don't demolish them all tomorrow!
