Peanut Butter Brookie

Peanut Butter Brookie

Have you ever had a Brookie?  They’re part brownie, part cookie and 100% delicious.

But some Brookies can be a little too sweet. 

Not these!

The typical recipe combines brownie batter with a classic chocolate chip cookie dough.  I reduce the sugar in both recipes and switched things up by stirring my chocolate chips into peanut butter cookie dough instead for that sweet and salty component. 

The small change makes these less cloying and more delicious.  You're gonna love this.
