How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350°.

Step 2

Coat bottom of an 8-inch square baking pan with cooking spray (do not coat sides of pan).

Step 4

Combine sugars and remaining ingredients in a bowl; stir until well-blended. Add flour mixture, stirring just until blended. Spread batter in bottom of prepared pan. Bake at 350° for 25 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out almost clean. Cool on a wire rack.

Chocolate chip cookie!

These really aren't brownies. They're more like chocolate chip cookies with a hint of peanut butter in them. I even added extra peanut butter and chocolate chips and they were still a little bland. I agree with the other reviews that they were missing something. They weren't bad, but not what I was expecting.

These need something, maybe more peanut butter, but they need something. They just lack in flavor and all I tasted was sweet. As is, I didn't find them that good, in fact we didn't even eat them all. There are much better brownie and peanut butter recipes out there. I won't bother with this one again.

Great homey sort of recipe. Very moist and chewy. Made as written except for substituting 1/4 cup of whole wheat flour for part of the all-purpose flour. Would not change a thing except to bake a few minutes more, but that may be my oven.

These were incredible! I added extra peanut butter and doubled the amount of chocolate chips (also used regular instead of mini). MMM! I literally ate a quarter of the pan myself when they were done. Make sure to take them out when they're still pretty gooey and set them out til they cool. The outside sets up crispy and the inside is perfect. Make them!

Really enjoyed these-made them exactly according to the recipe. Could use more peanut butter taste by adding a little more peanut butter and eliminating the oil, and I could see where putting big chocolate chips could be good.

Absolutely delicious! Perfectly moist and amazing, the only problem was that I could barely taste the peanut butter. It tasted like a big chocolate chip cookie, although nothing is wrong with that!

I added 2 Tbsp extra peanut butter and 1 Tbsp cocoa powder. Also used regular chocolate chips rather than mini because that's what I had on hand. Came out great! I think the larger chips make these brownies more chocolaty and gooey.

Everyone loved these! I put in more chocolate chips than called for, and used large chips rather than mini-chips. Great peanut butter flavor and moist!!! I'm making another batch as I write this. Yum!!!
