I was wondering if I could use PB instead of egg in brownies. I couldn't find much online, so I came up with my own. I worked with my favorite brownie recipe and got this recipe. They do have a vegan taste and the dough will seem wrong, but I was happy with the final product!

  • Beat sugar, peanut butter, vanilla extract, and salt together in a bowl until smooth and creamy. Mix flour and cocoa powder into peanut butter mixture; add canola oil and soy milk and stir until batter is moist, crumbly, and stiff. Spread batter into the prepared baking dish using your hands or a spoon.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until the top is dry and the edges have started to pull away from the sides of the pan, about 25 minutes.

Cook's Note:

Any type of milk can be used in place of the soy.

Everybody loved it! It reminds me of Reese's peanut buttery taste but with a kick of fudge! However as I was scooping up the ingredients I realize I didn't want to add ALL that sugar and salt.. so I altered it. I also used Hershey's Cocoa Powder. 10 minutes later I decided to stupidly cut myself a piece to sneak. It started to fall apart oops. Turns out that it needed 15-20 minutes to cool not 10. After they cooled enough for me to hold them I put them in the fridge and freezer (2 separate batches). Freezer ones were a little too hard to bite down later. Fridge was perfect. Read More

I liked the idea of these brownies but unfortunately the recipe did not work for me. The brownie was very crumbly and grainy from the sugar. It tasted similar to a peanut butter bar and less like a brownie. The taste was ok but we just weren't fans of the texture. Read More
