Done? Good! Now quick, go for a run or bike ride or something shwetty like that! (I know, you want to go eat those brownies. Patience, grasshopper.)

Nice! Now quick, go cut up a huge slice of these brownies and EAT.

AREN’T THEY GOOD???? I told you the wait was worth it. Y’all should trust me more. It’s not like we’re complete strangers who have only ever met on the internet. (Wait, how creepy did that sound?!?!)

I know, I know, you were skeptical at first. You were probably like, “Ugh, another raw brownie recipe?” WRONG, for two reasons: 1) These aren’t raw, they’re no-bake, get your facts straight and 2) This isn’t just another no-bake brownie recipe. These are PEANUT BUTTER, with a PEANUT BUTTER CHOCOLATE GANACHE, and CHOPPED PEANUTS. Yeah. I bet you’re regretting your outburst now, aren’t you?

I made these brownies with peanuts, but if you can’t have peanuts you could always use almonds, cashews, hazelnuts, walnuts, or of course the ubiquitous whatevernut instead. Problem, solved. Now GO EAT SOME MORE BROWNIES.  YOU DESERVE IT!!!!!

No Bake Peanut Butter Brownies

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup raisins (or 6 large medjool dates, pitted)
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup roasted, salted peanuts (Or almonds, cashews, Whatevernuts, etc.)
  • 2 Tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1/4 cup water

For the ganache:

  • 1/4 cup peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup milk of choice
  • 2 Tbsp cocoa powder
  • 2 Tbsp maple syrup

Directions: In a food processor, process the first 5 ingredients until a slightly crumbly dough forms. Grease an 8×6 pan and squish in the dough, pressing down HARD. In a small bowl, mix together the remaining 4 ingredients to form a frosting. Spread on brownie “batter” and refrigerate for about 30 minutes.

      Thank you! I think at least half of my recipes have peanut butter in them cause it’s SO DARN GOOD!!! And I also don’t see the point in using tons of refined sugar when you can use natural stuff that tastes just as good. I hope you get to try these!
