Peanut Butter Stuffed Vegan Brownie Skillet

Peanut Butter Stuffed Vegan Brownie Skillet

This dense and fudgy vegan brownie is cooked to perfection in a skillet for a deep dish dessert made  gluten-free. A rich and decadent double chocolate gooey brownie is stuffed with peanut butter for the ultimate treat everyone can enjoy. Top with your favorite ice cream and dig in–no plates needed!


Yum

I have to be honest, this recipe almost didn’t make it to the blog because I almost didn’t get photos of it. After this deep dish brownie came out of the oven, it took all my will power not to take a spoon to it right then and there. The peanut butter was oozing out the top and the warm chocolate chunks were calling me name (although they were probably scolding hot!).



Yum

If you follow my blog on a regular basis, you know that I am no stranger to baking my treats in the skillet. Actually, it’s one of my favorite ways to bake. I also really love the rustic look of a cast iron skillet and gives my photos a fun, moody look. Here are a few other skillet recipes I’ve made:

  • Paleo Deep Dish Chocolate Chip Cookie – Deep dish paleo chocolate chip cookie you can eat with a fork right out of the skillet for a decadent treat that won’t break your paleo diet.

  • Healthy Sweet Potato Breakfast Skillet – This Sweet Potato Breakfast Skillet is a hearty breakfast that’s quick, easy and my favorite go-to meal. The best part about this sweet and savory combination is that the entire recipe goes down in just one skillet!

  • Vegan & Gluten-Free Cinnamon Rolls – These vegan cinnamon rolls are sweet, buttery and delicious just like the traditional version only these rolls are made refined sugar-free and gluten-free to fit most diets.

Double chocolate gooey brownie is rich, decadent and stuffed with peanut butter for the ultimate treat everyone can enjoy. Top with your favorite ice cream and dig in--no plates needed!

Ingredients

  • 3/4 c gluten-free baking flour
  • 1/4 c coconut sugar
  • 1/4 c Swerve Sweetener, granulated
  • 1/4 c unsweetened cocao powder
  • 1/4 c unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/4 c olive oil or coconut oil, melted

  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • pinch sea salt
  • 2 tbsp peanut butter, natural

Instructions

  1. Place all your dry ingredients into a mixer and mix until combined. Add in the wet ingredients and continue mixing until a dough forms. Fold in chopped chocolate. Wrap dough in plastic and place in the freezer for 15 minutes.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 F and prepare an 8 inch cast iron skillet with non-stick spray. Press half of the cookie dough into the bottom of the skillet. Drop the peanut butter into the center and cover with remaining dough. It helps to lay a piece of parchment paper over the dough to press it down and pack it tightly. Bake for 13-16 minutes. Don't over bake. Let cool for 10 minutes before serving.

Double Chocolate Sweet & Salty Flourless Cookies (gluten-free, refined sugar-free)

Double Chocolate Sweet & Salty Flourless Cookies (gluten-free, refined sugar-free)

Delicious double chocolate flourless cookies made using gluten-free ingredients with a little bit of sweet and salty in every bite.

If you are looking for a healthy sweet treat then these cookies are a perfect match for you. Crisp edges and a dense fudgy center, these brownie like flourless cookies are heaven topped with a pretzel.


Chocolate cookies are on a regular rotation in my house. A couple weeks ago I made vegan chocolate cookies stuffed with caramel (to die for!) and a few weeks before that I made flourless chocolate peanut butter cookies (also to die for!). These double chocolate cookies are naturally made gluten-free, dairy-free and refined sugar-free using ground almonds, cocao powder, vegan butter, eggs, coconut sugar and a few other simple ingredients.

The Secret to a Perfect Cookie

I’ve said this before and I’ll say every time I post a cookie recipe because it’s the most important part when it comes to baking cookies (especially mine and especially if you like your cookies fudgy not cake like). Baking using natural and healthy ingredients can be tricky and cookies and brownies can often come out with a cake like texture. Don’t worry there’s a secret to getting perfectly chewy and dense cookies every single time. The most important thing I do with every single cookie and brownie is undercook them. Cookies and brownies will harden as they cool and continue cooking thus leaving a dense and fudgy center! *drooling*

Double Chocolate Sweet & Salty Flourless Cookies (gluten-free, low carb)

Healthy brownie like double chocolate flourless cookies.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 c almond meal, finely ground
  • 1/2 c coconut sugar
  • 1/2 c unsweetened cocao powder
  • 1/2 c chocolate protein powder PEScience 30% off code PBCHOCO
  • 1/4 c dairy-free butter, warm
  • 2 eggs, large
  • 1-2 tbsp unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • flaked sea salt
  • 1/4 c sugar-free dark chocolate chips
  • gluten-free pretzels for topping

Instructions

  1. In a stand alone mixer, stir together all the almond meal, coconut sugar, protein powder, cocao powder and baking powder. Add in the the butter, vanilla, eggs and applesauce. Mix until a sticky dough forms. If too dry, add more applesauce. Fold in chocolate chips. Cover the dough with plastic and plastic and place in the freezer for 30 minutes.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 F and prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper. Use a cookie scooper to scoop 1 1/2 inch balls (mine made 14) and place them on the baking sheet. Use the bottom of glass to press them flat (it helps if you spray it with non-stick spray first so they don't stick as much). Press a pretzel into the center.

Double Chocolate Healthy Cupcakes (gluten-free & sugar-free)

Double Chocolate Healthy Cupcakes (gluten-free & sugar-free)

Chocolate Healthy Cupcakes with Chocolate Frosting made gluten-free, sugar-free and high in protein!

Double chocolate healthy cupcakes with chocolate frosting. Need I say more? Yes, I do because of SEO and all that blogger stuff that I actually don’t understand that much. My plugin keeps telling me to write more so I do. 🙂


So back to the cupcakes. These healthy chocolate frosted cupcakes are made so healthy you could eat one for breakfast, before a workout, after a workout or right before bed and your Mama wouldn’t mad.

These cupcakes are frosted using 2-ingredients chocolate frosting! YES, you read that right! All you need is just two ingredients to make this delicious frosting. In the past I’ve made 2-ingredients chocolate frosting using just a sugar free chocolate bar and a couple tablespoons of almond milk but not this time.

This time I made my chocolate frosting using a sugar-free chocolate bar and a sweet potato. My chocolate bar and milk recipe is delicious but super rich and tastes best with a thin layer (like over banana bread) but if you are looking to put globs and globs of frosting on a cupcake then this sweet potato frosting is exactly what you are looking for.

I used PEScience Frosted Chocolate Cupcake Select Protein Powder (how convenient, right?) in this frosted chocolate cupcake recipe and you can get 30% off all PEScience products using my affiliate code PBCHOCO on their website PEScience.com

The macros for these cupcakes are pretty dang good and I was seriously impressed with myself when I counted them up and then later I got to thinking that I could also add protein to the frosting. I don’t think it would change the texture much except make it stiffer but it would make it much sweeter and higher in protein. So if you get a wild hair up your butt and want to try that, let me know how it goes. 🙂

  • 64g chocolate protein PEScience. 30% off code PBCHOCO
  • 1/2 c egg whites

    Other

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 F and prepare a cupcake pan with 7 liners.
  2. In a mixing bowl, stir together all dry cupcake ingredients. Add in the wet and mix until a smooth batter forms.
  3. Distribute the batter between the the 7 liners and bake for 15-18 minutes. Don't over bake or cupcakes will be on the dry side. Let cool.
  4. While cupcakes are cooling, prepare your frosting. Skin the sweet potato and use a fork to stab it to create air holes. Place the potato on a microwave safe plate and bake for 3-5 minutes or until soft. Let cool for 5 minutes. Cut the potato into chunks and place them into a food processor or high speed blender until pureed. Melt the chocolate and add it to the sweet potato puree and continue blending until well incorporated. You can add stevia to taste if you feel like your frosting isn't sweet enough.
  5. Frost cupcakes and decorate with sprinkles. ENJOY!

Notes

You can use store bought sweet potato puree
