Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Serves: 16 brownies
  • ½ cup granulated white sugar
  • ⅓ cup butter or a soft butter spread (I used Brumble & Brown)
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg or substitute (I used egg substitute)
  • ⅓ cup all-purpose flour
  • ⅓ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • ¼ cup plain Greek Yogurt
  • *
  • Peanut Butter Mixture
  • 2 Tbsp. PB2 Peanut Butter
  • 1 Tbsp water
  • ¼ cup confectioners’ sugar
  • 1 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted (I used Brumble & Brown)
  • 1 dash salt
  • ¼ teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. Spray an 8 x 8" baking pan with nonstick cooking spray.
  3. Peanut Butter Mixture:
  4. In a small bowl add PB2 and water, mix until peanut butter texture. Add butter, salt, confectioners sugar and vanilla extract. Whisk together until combined. Set a side. (note this will be liquidy)
  5. Brownie:
  6. In the bowl add butter and sugar and with a hand mixer, beat until creamy. Beat in the vanilla extract and egg.
  7. In a small bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, and baking powder. Add the flour mixture into the sugar and butter mixture and beat on a low speed. Fold in the yogurt.
  8. Pour into the prepared pan and smooth the top.
  9. Whisk your Peanut Butter Mixture than drizzle the peanut butter mixture over the top of your brownie batter and swirl with a knife. Than smooth the top.
  10. Bake for about 15 - 20 minutes, or until the edges start to pull away from the sides of the pan and the center of the brownies is still slightly soft. Do not over bake.
  11. Remove from oven and place on a wire rack to cool.
The texture of the brownie mix will be like a light mousse and it may seem thin in the pan, but it does rise while baking.

I baked my brownies for 15 minutes.

If you don't have PB2, just use ¼ cup of peanut butter and omit the water from the recipe, you will probably have a little bit thicker of a peanut butter mixture. Just add the dollops into the brownie and swirl with a knife.
