PB+J Dark chocolate brownies

peanut butter and jelly brownie recipe gluten free

I am a sucker for the peanut butter and chocolate duo but I think the combination of peanut butter and jelly is just perfect. PB&J couldn’t fault if it tried, but it would never even try.

Especially when you are dealing with high quality PB+J and combine it with dense, dark chocolate brownies. That’s a match made in heaven. 

I wanted to refine my baking skills and have been venturing into (very basic) but delicious baking. Jackson isn’t mad about this. 

I used Henri Jones Co Raspberry and Chia Jam  (HOMAGOSH my new favorite) and just your trusty ole peanut butter. I did have my eye on Fix and Fogg peanut butter but they don’t sell it anywhere in Melbourne. Fingers crossed that will change ASAP.

  3. Oh my! I am loving this rich and fudgey brownies! Pass the plate – I’m hungry!

    1. I may have eaten them all….. šŸ˜ Just have to make another batch!!

  4. Hey Bec, it looks too nice to be a skinny brownie. Please tel me it is?

    1. Hey Natalie,

      Whilst it does have a lot of butter in there (200grams or something) I did use a sugar free Well Naturally dark chocolate and only 1/3 cup sugar in which you could replace by using 1/3 cup rice malt syrup or another non refined sugar sweetener? You could also replace the butter with olive oil.

      THEN they would be perfectly skinny!

  5. I don’t do peanut butter but my boyfriend LOVES it, so I might have to bookmark these to make for his next birthday! Thanks for joining the linkup again! xx

    1. How kind! You could also make these just with jam in the brownies, win win!

  6. Ok, WOW these look amazing! There’s nothing like good quality PB and J but I’ve never added dark chocolate to the equation! What a genius idea

    1. It adds a nice bitter chocolate taste!
