Peanut Butter Swirl Brownies

Peanut butter browni

My mum didn’t bake much sweets when I was growing up. Koreans don’t eat much sweet cakes, muffins and pies, but have a fruit plate for dessert. However, we do have some chocolate snacks from the shop. Oh oh.. I remember when I visit to my grandma’s house, she always gives me some money and asks me to get a packet of cigarette from the shop. Then I’m more than happy to run down to the shop because I can buy whatever with the change. The bigger note she gives me the more snacks for us 🙂 We have a couple of snacks called “Choco pie” and “Oh! yes!” (yes, it is English name >.<). First one is basically similar to a whoopie pie with marshmallow in the middle. Second one is a light chocolate sponge cake bar with chocolate cream in the middle. It comes in an individual packet, a dozen in a box. I then kindly share with all my cousins when I get back from the shop. A dozen of pies easily gone in a sec! Brownies kind of remind me of those snacks I used to have and baking them makes me happy. This brownie recipe gave me 8 little squares. When it’s all done in the oven you are supposed to take it out, cool it down in a pan, even put in the fridge to cool completely before cutting them. Me? I just don’t wait whenever I bake cakes or bars. Why is it so hard to walk away and let it cool? Don’t make same mistakes like me x


100g dark chocolate
100g self-raising flour
1/4 cup of oats
1/2 cup of coconut oil
1 egg
1/4 cup of brown sugar
1/4 cup of milk
1 teaspoon of baking powder
a teaspoon of cacao powder
a pinch of salt
3 teaspoons of crunchy peanut butter

Preheat the oven to 180. Sift all dry ingredients and set aside. Melt the chocolate and coconut oil in a double boiler over medium heat or in a microwave and then stir in the sugar. Whisk the egg, milk and chocolate mixture in a large bowl. Add the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients. Fold to combine until smooth. Transfer to a prepared pan, drop little globs of peanut butter and swirl with a knife. Bake in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes. Allow the brownies to cool in the pan before cutting.
