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.


Yum

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. 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.

Healthy Crispy Bar Ice Cream Sandwich

Healthy Crispy Bar Ice Cream Sandwich

 

The only thing better than a giant bowl of ice cream is ice cream sandwich between your favorite childhood treat!

 


 

I’ve been playing around with the idea of making rice crispy treats without using marshmallows or butter. I tried a few different recipes until I found the perfect combination using peanut butter, honey and cereal! That’s it, just 3 ingredients. After I mastered the crispy bar, I knew I had to take it to the next level–with it being summertime and all–so I sandwiched some ice cream between 2 crispy bars and dipped it in chocolate sprinkles for good measure. Best idea I’ve ever had.

 

 

I used Erewhon Organic Crispy Brown Rice Cereal for a gluten-free treat!
