Peanut Butter Swirl Fudge Brownies

You'll find it extremely difficult to only have one of these super-moist and fudgy brownies --- their fudge-like texture and gorgeous peanut-butter swirl make them positively irresistible!
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Total Time 30 minutes
Servings 1 dozen brownies

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup white whole wheat flour
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup coconut sugar or brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 3 large eggs room temperature
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350F and lightly grease a 9x13 baking pan. Set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine flour, cocoa, and salt. In a large bowl, whisk coconut sugar, oil, eggs, and vanilla until smooth. Gently fold flour mixture into liquid, until just combined. (batter will be on the thicker side)
  3. Spread batter evenly in prepared pan and then drop peanut butter by the tablespoon evenly over batter. Using a knife, gently cut through batter to create swirls. (do not stir too much, otherwise you'll lose the swirl effect)
  4. Bake brownies at 350F 18-20 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out with moist crumbs still sticking to it. (brownies will be very soft---this is ok) Cool brownies on a wire cooling rack completely before cutting into squares.

Recipe Notes

Store brownies in an airtight container at room temperature up to 4 days.
