Easy Peanut Butter Brownies

I'm calling these Easy PB Brownies because the recipe just uses cocoa powder- no melting of chocolates or anything, and they're still so good and fudgy!!  I love these.  I just took the recent Snickers Brownie Recipe, left out the Snickers, and was left with delicious PB brownies. (You could also use Biscoff or Nutella in place of the PB).

Easy Peanut Butter Brownies
adapted from here

1 cup butter
2 cups granulated sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
4 large eggs
3/4 cup dutch processed cocoa
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup creamy peanut butter

1. Heat oven to 350°F. Grease a 9 x 13 pan with cooking spray. Set aside.

2. Place butter in medium saucepan on the stove. Heat over medium heat until butter is melted. Remove from heat and stir in sugar and vanilla extract. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well with spoon after each addition. Add cocoa; stir until well blended. Add flour, baking powder and salt; stir until combined.  Pour batter into prepared pan.

3. Drop dollops of peanut butter over the batter. Using a knife or skewer, swirl peanut butter into brownies. Bake for 25-35 minutes or until brownies begin to pull away from sides of pan and a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. (Mine were perfect in 25 minutes- 35 would have ruined them. Check them early.) Cool brownies completely in pan on a wire rack. Once cool, cut into squares and serve.
