Peanut Butter Brunettes

You’ve heard of blondies but say hello to the brunettes! Oh yes I’m doing it for my fellow brunettes we finally have some brownies named after us 🙂 With 3 main ingredients these squares are the perfect easy afternoon baking , they are light and airy just like cake without the flour! I can’t wait for you to give these a go, guilt free indulgence! I had to give away the last few of my recent batch because I couldn’t stop picking….. just a heads up to those of you like me:) Store these in an airtight container for up to 5 days.

  3. Stir in half of the chocolate chips.
  4. Pour the mix into a lined brownie tin (8″x8″ lined or greased. The mix should be at least 4 cm in height in the brownie tin).
  5. Bake in the PREHEATED oven for 25 minutes, the brunettes should rise up in height, be lightly browned and and firm on top.
