Recipe Notes

1) You don't need store bought peanut butter to make this. Just buy roasted(without oil), unsalted peanuts blend in a food processor for 10 minutes until smooth. Voila! Healthy peanut butter with any additives or sugar! 2) Don't over mix the brownie dough. Never use a mixer to make brownies!
