Peanut butter swirl Brownies!

Yes, this is a baking post *shock horror* After just saying I wasn’t a successful maker of food 🙂 But, with my sister-in-law heading over with her 2 kiddies tomorrow, I thought it a great chance to hone my skills. Now, being a bit of an addict when it comes to anything with peanut butter & chocolate I trawled pinterest until I happened upon this beauty by dashingdish.com …Peanut butter swirl brownies!And at only 130cal a serving – GENIUS! Quick to make, no flour & the option to substitute the milk & sugar (which I did, but I added dark choc chips so I’m guessing its not quite as guilt-free as I would like) I also made 9 individual ones instead of 1 large one but it worked! Yummy & fudgy (is that a real word?hmmm) & I think I may serve it with healthy banana ice-cream, also from pinterest (http://userealbutter.com/2010/08/12/single-ingredient-ice-cream-recipe/), for an even yummier morning treat with coffee.

Although I must admit, as I am being honest, I did set off the fire alarm! No kidding, it really did happen!Seems I must have missed a spot of something while cleaning the oven out & it burnt, so as I opened the door a bellow of smoke erupted out, slight exaggeration but you get the idea!Luckily I hadn’t put the brownies in yet. And did I mention my boys were napping while this was all going on…it never rains it pours as the saying goes. But I am happy with the result & I’ll let you know what my SIL thinks tomorrow…as she is just as much a fan of the combination I have faith it will be a hit. And now for the evidence…

Yes, that’s the batter all made up already. Doesn’t look like enough to make 9 servings but it is plenty…

End product. Not so pretty to look at but it’s only going to end up mushed inside anyway,right? And no, it’s not burnt, it’s the dark choc chips… I promise 🙂
