I love brownies, their heavy, rich chocolateyness, with a hint of sticky gooeyness in the middle. I bake them a lot (see my salted fudge or almond recipes), but I had never made their twin – the blondie. The baking mood struck on Sunday afternoon, and after a rummage around in the cupboard I found a bag of white chocolate chips and a big jar of crunchy peanut butter – and thought I would give peanut butter and white chocolate blondies a go using them – and they were utterly delicious!
- 125g plain flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 100g butter
- 150g crunchy peanut butter
- 150g light brown sugar
- 2 tablespoons of golden syrup
- 1 medium egg
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 100g white chocolate chips
- Melt the butter
- Pour the melted butter into a bowl with the peanut butter and golden syrup and mix well.
- Stir through the sugar until well combined.
- Beat the egg and stir into the mixture.
- Add the flour and baking powder and combine.
- Stir through the white chocolate chips.
- Pour into a brownie tray and cook at 170 degrees for approx 30 minutes until brown and firm on top.
- Allow to cool completely before slicing.
- Sprinkle with icing sugar if desired.
These were so tasty, and my kids loved them, my only complaint is that they went too quickly! I am going to have another go soon replacing some of the sugar with banana as banana and peanut butter is such a good combo, and a little less sugar is always a good thing.
