Fudgey Peanut Butter Brownies




I have been on a chocolate and peanut butter bender this past week, so I thought I would finish it off with one of my favorite desserts... BROWNIES! This is a guilt free version that will satisfy even the worst chocolate craving.


Ok, so I know "fudgey" isn't a word, but I feel like it describes the chocolatey goodness of these brownies perfectly! These are dense, moist, and the perfect balance between chocolate and peanut butter. Give them a try... you won't regret it :)

Fudgey Peanut Butter Brownies

(16 servings)

Ingredients:
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup sweetener of choice (I used 24g of stevia. You could also use agave, sugar, etc.)
  • 1 cup (2/3rds of a 12oz package) Lite silken tofu (like Mori Nu)
  • 2 tablespoons whipped peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup almond milk
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup semisweet chocolate chips 
  • non-stick spray
Method:
  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Spray an 8x8 inch baking pan with non-stick spray.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together dry ingredients; set aside.
  • In a blender or food processor, blend together wet ingredients until smooth.
  • Pour wet ingredients into dry ingredients; mix until just combined.
  • Cook for 15-18 min, or until toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean. Cool, then cut into 16 squares. Enjoy!!
