This is based off of a different recipe, but i made some changes that changed the recipe completely so i decided to post this one too!

- 3⁄4 cup sugar
- 1⁄4 cup brown sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 egg white
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1⁄4 cup cocoa powder

- 1 teaspoon skim milk
- 1⁄2 cup flour
- 3 tablespoons flour
- 1⁄4 teaspoon baking soda
- 1⁄8 teaspoon salt
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Combine peanut butter, sugar, brown sugar, egg, egg white, and vanilla.
- Add cocoa powder about a tablespoon at a time.
- Add milk, baking soda, and salt, and gradually add flour.
- Bake in a 8x8 or a 6x10 pan for 25-30 minutes. Check with toothpick for doneness.
Terrible recipe. You need to add a LOT more milk than it calls for, and even then these are dry and crumbly.
Made for Spring PAC 2008 - This is a good recipe if you want a low fat version of a brownie. Even though the flavour is good, we thought they were a bit too dry. As I mixed the batter I didn't think that it needed the extra 3 Tbsp of flour that were listed but I put it in because I wanted to make the recipe just as written. I also would like more peanut butter flavour but that would not be in keeping with the low fat idea. I baked this in a "greased" 8 x8 pan and they were done in 22 minutes so I would suggest watching them closely. Good recipe Christine, thx.
Made for PAC Spring 07! Anything with PB and chocolate is good to go in this house! The recipe was easy to make. I mixed everything by hand and that was fine. I bought the exact ingredients called for so I could make this recipe the way it was intended.The only thing I added: some peanut butter chips to the top for garnish. BTW-1 TB of skim milk plus 1 tsp of skim milk is the same thing as 4 tsps or 20ml...that may be helpful to someone. I used an 8x8 pan and though the batter was very shallow in the pan, they rose to about 1/2 inch. We liked the flavor a lot, the pb was not overwhelming (I'm not a huge fan like the rest of the crew so this is a must if I'm going to like it too). The texture of these are a little bit chewy and a drier texture like a cookie or tea cake. This is definately a lower fat recipe than most brownie recipes and I recommend it if you are looking for that kind of thing! Thanks for sharing your recipe, Christine.
