Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Brownies

Watching the USA/Canada Hockey Olympic Game, Paul and I had a slight craving for something sweet after dinner....thinking about the ingredients we have on hand, this recipe was perfect.  It all mixed up quick and beautifully and in no time, the sweet smell of peanut butter, sugar and chocolate was drifting out of the kitchen and into the living room.

    I just made something similar for my kids. Do you think they'd hold up well to some healthier substitutions? (Oatmeal, whole wheat flour, flax instead of egg, etc.?)

    Hi! I do think these would hold up very well to substitutions! The thickness of the brownie would definitely tolerate some oatmeal and the flavor of the peanut butter would balance out the other flavors very well. If you try it, let me know how it turns out!
