A Sweet Indulgence - Brownies with Peanut Butter Frosting

The girls and I enjoyed making these today!

1 cup cane sugar
1/2 cup unbleached flour
1/3 cup cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
2 (beaten) eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 canola oil

Heat oven to 350 degrees.  Mix dry ingredients in large mixing bowl.  Add eggs, vanilla extract, and oil.  Stir to form batter.  Pour batter into greased muffin pan.  (The batter is only enough for about 10.)  Bake for 16 - 18 minutes.

Peanut Butter Frosting
1/4 cup (room temperature) butter
2 teaspoons heavy cream
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/3 cup peanut butter
1 cup powdered sugar

Add butter and heavy cream to mixing bowl.  Mix on medium until light and fluffy.  Add vanilla and peanut butter.  Mix on medium for about 2 minutes.  Slowly add powdered sugar.  Mix on low until well combined.

Add frosting once brownies have cooled completely.  Top with chocolate chips.  Enjoy!


  1. I wonder if these would work with almond flour?! They look amazing!
