Nutella Peanut Butter Brownies Recipe


  • 1/2 cup Butter melted
  • 1 cup Sugar
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 1/2 cup All-purpose Flour
  • 1/4 cup Cocoa Powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon Baking Powder
  • Pinch of Salt
  • 4 Tbsp (1/4 cup) Peanut Butter (chunky, smooth, whatever you have on hand)
  • 4 Tbsp (1/4 cup) Nutella


  • Preheat oven to 170 degrees Celsius (fan forced). Line a square cake tin (or a square 8 x 8 pan; which I didn't have) with baking paper.
  • Mix the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt in a bowl. Set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl, beat the sugar into the melted butter. Beat in the eggs one at a time. Stir in the vanilla extract and combine thoroughly. Add the flour mixture and combine well.
  • In a separate microwaveable bowl, pop the peanut butter and Nutella into a microwave and heat it up for 10-15 seconds (or until runny). Fold this into the brownie mix. I didn't mix this thoroughly as I wanted to keep the peanut butter swirls intact upon baking.
  • Pour the batter into the lined baking tin and bake for 45-55 minutes (check with the skewer test) in the oven.
  • Let cool in the tin for 2-3 minutes before removing. Cut into as many or as little pieces as you require and serve warm with a glass of milk.


To be honest, you could skip the vanilla altogether as I couldn't taste it at all in the end.
