Very Fudgy Flourless Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Brownies

IMG_3337

I am always on the lookout for cookie and brownie ideas, especially if they have peanut butter in them because, really, there is nothing better than peanut butter…in my opinion!

I adapted this recipe from one I found out on the internets. These are very fudgy and very decadent. But there is nothing “bad” in them – just peanut butter, maple syrup and homemade applesauce (with the last of the apples from this year’s apple picking adventure!)

1/2 cup all natural peanut butter
1/4 cup maple syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup applesauce
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup vegan mini chocolate chips, plus 2 tablespoons for sprinkling on top

Preheat oven to 350. Get your brownie pan ready. I use my 8×8.

Mix the peanut butter, maple syrup, vanilla and applesauce with a hand mixer until smooth. Add cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt. Mix again until smooth.

Fold 1/4 cup of chocolate chips into batter. Pour batter a brownie pan and smooth the top. Sprinkle remaining 2 tablespoons of chocolate chips over the top.

Bake for 20 minutes or until top is just set. Cool and then cut into squares. Enjoy!
