I have an obsession with Peanut Butter Blondie Brownies! They are so moist, chewy and full of peanut butter chips and chocolate chips, for the perfect amount of sweetness in every single bite. I cook mine to where they are just done so they stay nice and soft in the center and the outside has just enough brown that it offers a bit of chew. Blondie brownies come in all flavors, and I love this mix. This recipe for blondie brownies does not require a mixer, and with simple ingredients, you can have brownies in a hurry!
I have found that using a bowl and spoon is the key to making the perfect blondie brownies. Skip the blender and you will get light, moist, and delicious brownies each and every time. I used to use my stand mixer, and I found that it would give them a thicker more dense texture and it wasn’t what I was hoping for. Then one day I didn’t feel the drive to pull out my stand mixer and it was like a light bulb went off! I found great success with this route.
Tips for Making Peanut Butter Blondie Brownies
Like stated above, skip your mixer. The mixer creates a more dense brownie and if you want light and airy, grab a spoon and bowl and mix by hand. TRUST ME on this one, the results will show in the final result.
Buy some parchment paper, and use this to line your pan. Simply spray your pan with some cooking spray and then place your parchment paper into line it. This will make removing the blondie brownies so much easier, and you will have perfect brownies at every single edge. I love these parchment paper sheets, they are great for all my baking adventures.
As hard as it sounds, let the brownies cool completely before you cut! If you don’t they will fall apart and become a bit of a mess. Letting them cool helps them cut so much easier!
Lastly, toss the peanut butter chips and chocolate chips into the batter and fold them in. Don’t sprinkle on top. It will give your brownies the perfect texture and chips will be baked throughout. It will still give a great presentation factor having them baked into the mix.
