These peanut butter brownies combine two of my favorite flavors: peanut butter and chocolate chips. Dense and chewy, these brownies are great for bake sales, potlucks and tailgating parties.

Don't Miss: Chocolate Peanut Butter Brownies Recipe

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 35 minutes

Total Time: 50 minutes

Yield: 16 brownies


  • 1/3 cup butter, softened to room temperature
  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup firmly-packed light brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 9-inch square baking dish.

  2. Cream butter, peanut butter and sugars together with an electric mixer until fluffy, 3-5 minutes.

  3. Beat in eggs.

  4. In a separate bowl, whisk flour, baking powder and salt together. Beat into peanut butter mixture on low speed, just until incorporated. Do not overmix.

  5. Stir in chocolate chips.

  6. Spoon batter into prepared baking dish, spreading with a spatula to even it out. Bake in preheated oven 28-34 minutes, until golden around the edges. Let cool completely before cutting.

Don't Overbake, Member SusanAdcox

These brownies have a delicious flavor. The peanut butter taste is present but not overwhelming. They are a nice alternative to cookies. Instead of baking three or four batches (and inevitably burning one!) make these bars instead. The next time I make them, I'm going to take them out a little sooner. This time I baked them for 34 minutes. I think if you take them out at 28, they'll be better.
