I have to tell you, as I began the process of making these peanut butter swirl brownies, I was nervous. I just couldn’t imagine how a brownie recipe that called for no flour, butter or oil of any kind would leave me with the ultimate, chocolatey decadence that are these swirly, peanut-butter-filled cubes of deliciousness.

But I’ve tried many of Sally’s recipes in the past, (Sally is the genius who came up with this brilliant recipe, BTW) and they have never failed. She knows what she’s doing, so I put my trust in her expertise and began baking away.

The outcome? Once again, Sally proved that she can do no wrong in the kitchen.
I’m still amazed at this recipe and continue to return to it time and time again.
In my opinion, there aren’t many combos that can beat chocolate + peanut butter. It’s like snuggling in bed + a rainy Sunday morning; a new pair of running shoes + a whole day free to run as long and far as you want; or a Friday night at the end of a long work week + a perfectly blended margarita. They go together perfectly. Your taste buds will be tickled.
Oh and a quick pro tip for you: The first time I made this recipe I had some White Chocolate Wonderful peanut butter on hand from Peanut Butter & Co. If you want to take your peanut butter swirl to the next level, I highly recommend using it in place of traditional peanut butter, just sayin’.
