How’s about we make Vegan Peanut Butter Chocolate Brownies stuffed with vegan peanut butter cups? Aka peanut butter cup brownies? *Drool mode*
If you were with me last week, you know we all had a ball (or cup) making vegan peanut butter cups, but we were all thinking “What should we do to take these homemade peanut butter cups to the Next Level?”
Enter: stuffing the heck out of moist, fudgy and decadently rich vegan peanut butter brownies with our carefully and lovingly-made homemade vegan peanut butter cups.
So are you game for the vegan peanut butter chocolate dessert to end all vegan peanut butter chocolate desserts? Let’s bake this!
How to Make Peanut Butter Cup Brownies
First things first, make a batch of Vegan Peanut Butter Cups. You’ll need over 1 cup of vegan peanut butter cups for this recipe.
Preheat oven to 325°F. Line an 8-inch square baking pan with parchment paper.
Add peanut butter, coconut sugar, maple syrup and coconut oil to a medium mixing bowl. Whisk until it resembles caramel.
Now it’s time to add in the cocoa powder! Add it in ¼ cup increments so you can slowly, but steadily incorporate the cocoa powder. Whisk until shiny and smooth. Whisk in vanilla, salt and flax eggs.
Switch to folding with a rubber spatula. Add in oat flour and fold until no flour patches remain.
Fold in the first ½ cup of vegan peanut butter cups. Use more if you like it really well packed with pb cups! Transfer the peanut butter cup brownie batter to a pan and smooth into an even layer. Press remaining ½ cup of vegan peanut butter cups into the brownie batter.
Bake, Cool and Enjoy
Bake for about 30 minutes, cool and enjoy the best vegan peanut butter chocolate brownies ever!
