Vegan Peanut Butter Brownies

Chocolate and Peanut Butter is a match made in heaven. And these vegan Peanut Butter Brownies are just what you need right now!

Vegan Peanut Butter Brownies

Brownies are nice and all. But brownies with peanut butter swirls and chocolate chunks is where it’s at!

Of course, you can use the brownie recipe as a base and add your favorite mix-ins or toppings such as different fruits (raspberries, cherries), nuts (walnuts? pistachios?) or add swirls on top (tahini?).

To make a smaller batch of brownies, I’ve baked these brownies in a loaf pan because I never know what to do with so many brownies!

If you want to use a regular-sized brownie pan, double the recipe! Enter ’16 servings’ in the recipe card below and it will double all the ingredients for you.
