Did you know that March is Peanut Month, and whats more exciting is that March 1st Peanut Butter Lover’s Day, YES it’s true, trust me, or just google it! So I’ve got you ready and prepared for to make! Why am I posting peanut butter brownies in the middle of the week? Because next month is Peanut Month, and even better, March 1 is Peanut Butter Lover’s Day!

Peanut Butter Brownie

I don’t tend to post too many peanut butter recipes, but I’m a huge peanut butter lover, actually all nuts not just peanuts, especially pistachios, almonds and walnuts. Peanuts also do get a fair share of my diet too! As a kids growing up in the California, I did have PB&J sandwiches known as peanut butter and Jam/Jelly! More strangely I often added a slice of cheese in the middle!

I’m a definitely Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup or Reese’s Pieces type of girl, chocolate and peanut is like heaven in a bite, the creaminess and richness just makes this girl a happy girl! M&Ms now also do a peanut butter version, keep your eye out for that one. Peanut Butter Brownie

These brownies are a whole new level of creaminess and flavour because of the peanut butter. I used crunchy peanut butter too, which added this slightly salty and sweet element. It adds a completely different type of richness than chocolate while going hand in hand with the flavours.

How do you plan to celebrate Peanut Butter Lover’s Day? I think I will be whipping up another batch of these and get the children to help, mine love helping specially when it comes to licking the bowl and spoon!

Now I know my kids can’t actually take these in their lunch boxes as they have a no nut policy, however these are brilliant for a quick snack in between the after school clubs where dinner may be a little later than usual to keep them well energised. Unfortunately when I have a piece or two, I want a warm cuppa and a light snooze!

I took these into work as a part of my birthday goodies, and these literally disappeared by mid afternoon! I think they were the winner out of all the baked good I took in.
