Peanut Butter Swirl Brownies

Today I am sharing my recipe for homemade peanut butter swirl brownies. I recently made them for a friend and was reminded how good they are. These are so much better than any box brownie mix and the peanut butter swirl really kicks them up a notch. 

Peanut Butter Swirl Brownies

350 degrees; 20-25 mins. 

  • ⅓ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • ½ cup flour
  • ¼ teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • ½ cup vegetable oil
  • 2 eggs
  • ⅓ cup creamy peanut butter

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line 9” x 9” pan with aluminum foil and spray with non-stick cooking spray. 

In a bowl mix together flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt. Set aside. 

In a mixer combine oil, vanilla and sugar. Blend well. Add eggs. Blend again. 

Add half of the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients. Mix well. Add the second half. Mix well. 

Pour brownie mix into the lined/greased pan. Melt the peanut butter in a microwave safe glass dish. Pour over brownie batter.

Using a knife swirl peanut butter into brownies making sure to get peanut butter at least half way down into brownie batter.

Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes until an inserted toothpick comes out clean. 

Allow brownies to cool, then lift foil from the pan. Remove foil from brownies, cut and serve.
