Snickerdoodle Peanut Butter Chip Brownies

Sunday, September 14, 2014

These taste a lot like snickerdoodle cookies with peanut butter in the center.  The cinnamon sugar compliments the peanut butter perfectly. Paired off with coffee and tea they're a great match. Reminds me like a coffee cake in texture. They're a dense like  scratch cake. I really think they became a favorite with the kids when they were little. After they cooled I added the extra chips on top for garnishing these are perfect for any type of travel as they will hold up well. They also freeze great. 

Snickerdoodle Peanut Butter Chip Brownies

Beat together:

3/4 cup butter
3/4 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup white sugar

Beat together sugars and butter with an electric mixer until light around 3 minutes.


2 eggs beating until smooth
2 teaspoons vanilla

Gently blend in:

1 1/4 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 1/3 cups flour


1 cup peanut butter chips
cinnamon and sugar mixture (2/3 cup sugar to 3 teaspoons cinnamon)

Line a brownie pan with parchment or heavily grease. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Spread a thin layer of batter on the parchment paper. Sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar to cover that layer, then add the 1 cup peanut butter chips. 

Spread the remaining batter over the top. Sprinkle with more cinnamon sugar mixture.

Bake around 20 to 25 minutes do not overbake these will end up dry. Cool, cut into squares.
