Ingredients

Brownies

  • 1/4 cup (2oz) unsalted butter melted and slightly cooled
  • 1/2 cup (100g) granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 tablespoons (15g) unsweetened cocoa powder sifted if lumpy

Peanut Butter Swirl

  • 1 tablespoon (.5oz) unsalted butter melted
  • 2 tablespoons (15g) powdered sugar
  • 3 tablespoons smooth peanut butter
  • 1/8 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Pinch of salt

Instructions

Brownies

  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F. Grease a 9x5-inch loaf pan and line with parchment paper.

  2. In a medium bowl, combine sugar, cooled butter (if it's too hot, it will scramble your egg), egg, and vanilla. Whisk until well-combined.

  3. To the same bowl, add flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt. Stir until just combined.

  4. Transfer mixture to your prepared pan and use a knife to spread the batter so that it mostly covers the bottom of the pan.

Peanut Butter Swirl

  1. In a small bowl, whisk together peanut butter, melted butter, powdered sugar, vanilla, and salt until well-mixed. Drop the peanut butter mixture by the spoonful over the brownie batter.

  2. Use a knife to swirl in the peanut butter by drawing 3 horizontal lines down the long side and then making an "S" shape across them.

  3. Bake for 22 to 25 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into a non-peanut butter section near the middle comes out with just a few crumbs.

  4. Place brownie pan on a cooling rack and cool for at least 15 minutes before removing the brownies. Slice and enjoy!
