There is nothing like a good brownie. With peanut butter. And milk. I hinted the other day that sometimes I get slack for the baked goods I make and how "Paula Deen" they are. Well, I'd like you to know that this one contains NO butter.
Aren't you proud?
It was our dessert of the week last week and lasted, well, all about three days in the house. I love a cakey brownie, but I also really love a fudgy brownie, and this one rings right into that category.
Fudgy Peanut Butter Brownies
1/2 c. canola oil
3/4 c. cocoa
1/2 c. sugar
1/4 c. honey
3/4 c. flour
1 t. salt
1 t. vanilla
1 t. baking powder
1/2 c. peanut butter chips
In a stand or hand-held mixer combine eggs, sugar, honey and vanilla. In a separate bowl combine oil and cocoa until a chocolate sauce consistency forms. Pour into the egg/sugar mixture and combine. Mix together flour, salt and baking powder and add to liquid ingredients.
Pour into a greased 8x8 baking pan, top with peanute butter chips. Bake at 325 degrees for 25 minutes or until toothpick inserted comes out clean.
These are fudgy, chewy and delicious. Give them a try. Substitute whatever "chips" you like. I'm thinking mint chips would be good?
So I spent last night listening to the little man cough. Do any other moms out there lay in bed when their child is a little under the weather, listening to them, then can't get back to sleep? That was me last night. So frustrating. Especially when the alarm goes off at 5:45 a.m.
Even more so that the husband sleeps through anything and the more I hear him breathe heavy in his deep slumber the more mad I get for not being able to get back to sleep.
The joys of motherhood.
At least I have these brownies.
