Hello my dear food lovers!
Today’s recipe is definitely for chocolate lovers, but mainly for peanut butter lovers… Here is my chocolate and peanut butter brownie!!
I was happy to discover quite recently the Dakatine peanut butter, a peanut butter made in France. Yay!! It even means more to me since this peanut butter is made in Alsace, by the “Grands Moulins de Strasbourg”, since 1952!
Combined with my Gruau D’Or flour, it is the best of Alsace in one single recipe!!
People usually think that peanut butter has more fat than butter itself or oil, it isn’t true actually. So why not use it more in our daily baking?
I had in mind my chocolate brownie recipe, I adjusted it in order to make a super delicious one, the chocolate and peanut butter brownie.
This recipe works well in a 25×31 cm mold (it works too with a smaller mold, in such case bake it a little longer).
Ready to make a brownie?
