Peanut Butter Brownies

O.M.G these brownies are the total bomb. I’ve been meaning to share them with you guys (hi, yep, you AND you, both of you) for ages and ages but my gosh life has been busy. Anyway, the other day (weeks ago!) I asked James what he wanted me to bake and he said “brownies….with peanut butter”. Okay! Challenge accepted! Well, since then I’ve made them twice, taken them into my old work (twice! they were very popular) and eaten my body weight in them (which coincidentally increases every time you eat them).

Peanut Butter Cream Cheese Pound Cake

I was feeling out of sorts the other day and realised I hadn’t baked a cake for ages, no wonder! I turned my trusty Joy the Baker cook book and endevoured to find a recipe that would use ingredients that I already had. I spotted her cream cheese pound cake recipe and remembered I had some cream cheese to use up. I only had half the amount needed though, sensible people might just make half the recipe, but then you’d only have half as much cake, so I made up the rest of the required cream cheese with peanut butter. My man loves peanut butter. It was just the right level of peanutty and definitely delicious.

Vegan Peanut Cookies (GF)

I wanted to bake something vegan friendly to take into work and a quick Google search lead me to this useful article on Jamie Oliver’s website. I was instantly drawn to the peanut butter cookies as I’ve had a bit of a thing about peanuts recently and kept my fingers crossed that they’d be a popular choice. I was pretty excited to see that not only were they vegan but they were gluten free too!

They were tasty with a nice crunch and crumble. They seemed to go down well with everyone but I kept a couple at home and they definitely didn’t last long!

Peanut Butter and Honey Chocolate Chip Cookies

I spotted the recipe for these on The Salted Cookie and I have only tweaked it slightly. Honey and peanut butter and two of James’ favourite things, add cookies into the equation and we are onto a winner. I hadn’t baked any cookies for months and I was having withdrawals. I thought these would be great take-to-school(work) cookies after the lovely Christmas break. Something to brighten the mid-morning tea break.

My gosh were they dangerously tasty! I was glad James took them to work because after all the excesses of Christmas, the last thing I needed were these calling my name from the biscuit tin! I halved the original recipe and made about 12 cookies.

Don’t forget to enter my giveaway! A couple of days left.
