Slow Cooker Peanut Butter Brownies
If you are a Bargain Mums readers you might know that we are currently renovating a 70’s house (you can read a bit about our renovation here – renovating to make money). Our current renovation project is the kitchen, which has involved us completely removing the original kitchen ready to replace it with a brand new, and much more practical kitchen. For this reason we have been without a kitchen for a few weeks, which has meant my slow cooker has been getting quite the workout.
I love baking, so being without an oven has been a bit of a struggle for me. I decided it was time to start getting creative with my slow cooker, and give slow cooker desserts a try, starting with these slow cooker peanut butter brownies. They are perfect to make for dessert; put them on mid-afternoon and they will be ready to eat after dinner.
- 115g butter
- 200g dark cooking chocolate
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 3 eggs
- 1 1/4 cups plain flour
- 1/4 cup cocoa powder
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 cup roughly chopped peanuts
- 1/2 cup peanut butter
- To prepare the slow cooker, line the base and sides of your slow cooker with baking paper and spray with a little oil.
- Add the butter and dark chocolate to a large mixing bowl and microwave in 30 second bursts until melted, stirring as you go. Add the sugar and eggs and stir until well combined.
- Add the plain flour, cocoa powder and baking powder and stir until combined.
- Add the chopped peanuts and peanut butter and gently fold through until brownie batter has visible swirls of peanut butter.
- Cook on low for 4 hours, then let cool before slicing.
