Things I have been cooking lately #19: Gluten free peanut butter fudge brownies

I have to admit than on reading a brownie recipe with no chocolate, butter, oil or flour in it I was pretty sure it was going to be rather sad. However the pictures and the fact that there was lots of lovely peanut butter (look… I eat it out of the jar) was enough to make me try these and boy am I glad I did. They are deliciously fudgy and rich, gluten free and considerably lower in fat than standard brownies. Also ludicrously easy to make. Get in!

Gluten free peanut butter fudge brownies
Adapted from Sally’s Baking Addiction

½ cup oats
½ cup cocoa
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 egg
170g fat free vanilla yoghurt
¼ cup semi skimmed milk
1 cup Demerara sugar
½ cup smooth peanut butter, make sure you get a sugar free, additive free one – you don’t need all that crap

Put all the ingredients except the peanut butter in a blender (or in a large bowl and get at it with a stick blender) and blend until smooth. Grease a 20cm x 20cm baking dish and line with baking parchment.  Pour in the chocolate mixture.

Put the peanut butter in the microwave for 30 seconds. Add the melted peanut butter to the brownie mixture a few spoonfuls at a time, dotting over the surface and then swirl through with a knife to create a marbled effect.

Bake at 180 C for 25 minutes.

Allow the brownies to cool completely before cutting all they will fall apart. Prepare to be amazed.
