Just in time for Valentine’s Day, I’ve got the perfect homemade treat for you (and the one you love)! These Peanut Butter Brownie Bars would also make a fun little treat to share with teachers and neighbors in honor of the upcoming “day of love,” especially if you’re me and you’ve made this recipe three times in the last week in order to get it just right. :) I can assure you though, the final outcome was worth the wait. It’s hard to beat that perfect combination of sweet chocolate and salty peanut butter! (Oh, and if you’re new here, FYI, the refined sugar in this recipe does break the rules, but it’s something we don’t mind in an occasional homemade treat now that our official 100-day pledge is over.)

Can I make these with honey or maple syrup and real peanut butter?
Hi there. We’ve not tried to make this recipe with honey or maple syrup.
We looove these! The last time I made them, I used half melted butter and half melted coconut oil. It worked well so next time I think I will only use coconut oil (and no butter!). I also used half white sugar and half coconut sugar for the brownie part and next time think I’ll cut out the white sugar completely and just use coconut sugar. I’m also thinking about using a chia or flax egg in place of one or more of the eggs. Thanks for this great (and delicious!) recipe!
I’m dairy free so I’m glad to hear coconut oil works!!
We love these brownies a lot! I was looking to see how many carbs are in a serving size? My dad watches carbs because of diabetes. So I was curious if anyone knew how many carbs per serving these brownies have? Thanks in advance.
Hi there. We do not provide nutrition details. This post helps explain the philosophy behind that.
