These chocolate peanut butter brownies taste sinfully rich, but they’re actually healthier than your average brownie. My family loves this easy gluten-free dessert recipe!
These chocolate peanut butter brownies have a great flavor and texture that comes from the peanut butter. Coconut oil, eggs, and melted chocolate add richness as well.
There’s a bit of controversy in my family about dark chocolate versus lighter chocolate treats. My son doesn’t like dark chocolate, while my husband and daughter do. It’s a balancing act to find just the right chocolate level to satisfy all of them, and this recipe seems to achieve that balance. When in doubt, we add a scoop of vanilla ice cream to bring everyone together.
I typically use unsweetened baking chocolate for my brownies, but you could also use a dark chocolate bar or semi-sweet chocolate chips if that’s what you have on hand. You may want to cut back on the maple syrup a bit if you use sweetened chocolate. Either way, this is a delicious dessert with an extra boost of protein.
