Peanut Butter Maple Brownies {Munchie Monday}

I am always looking for new baked goodies to make. I recently concocted a Peanut Butter Maple recipe that my husband loves. He is not a big chocolate fan, so these brownies were definitely a welcome treat. I adapted the recipe from one in Cooking Light.The recipe is really simple, so this is a good one to go to when in a pinch.

Ingredients

1/2 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/8 tsp salt
1/4 cup chocolate chips
1/4 cup pure maple syrup
1/4 cup + 1 Tbsp smooth peanut butter
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 large egg white
1 large egg

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 F.

Combine the flours, salt, and baking soda in a mixing bowl. Put to the side. Mix sugar, maple syrup, peanut butter, vanilla, and eggs together in another bowl. Add flour mixture to the wet mixture and blend until moist. Fold in chocolate chips. **I actually tempered my chocolate and mixed it straight in. However, I think that folding in the chocolate chips may work better.**

Once the mixture is blended, place into a greased brownie pan. (I just sprayed it with nonstick spray.) Bake in the oven for 25 minutes. Test with a toothpick. When the toothpick comes out nearly clear, remove from oven. Cool. Then, cut and serve! (They were great a little warm!)

  1. Sounds delish...never would have thought of adding maple syrup to brownies. :)

    1. I have been alternating between using maple syrup or honey as a sweetener. Lots of flavor possibilities!
