Fudgy Gluten Free Brownies with Peanut Butter Frosting is definitely a dessert for peanut butter lovers. They’re rich, creamy, and basically melt in your mouth. Satisfy your sweet tooth with this dessert!
Oh haiiii! Remember me? The girl who promised you gluten free brownies with peanut butter frosting SIX WEEKS ago when I posted my easy recipe for peanut butter frosting?? That would be ME and here they are, finally….
First of all, I can’t even begin to describe how truly amazing this combo is. Fudgy Gluten Free Brownies topped with a smooth and creamy peanut butter buttercream – pure bliss. But second, let’s get real for a hot sec.
Literally, because damn it’s been a hot summer! In a quick re-cap, we’ve had a VERY busy summer! I’ve still been rehabbing my torn lcl and have gotten into a really great gym routine to help strengthen my knee. Healing has been a lot slower than I’d like but it is making some progress.
I celebrated my birthday but didn’t have time to make a cake (hello, cookbook) so my husband and kids sang me happy birthday over ice cream as we over-looked the drawbridge in Mystic. We also got to meet Chef Adam Young, owner of Sift Bake Shop and winner of Food Network’s Best Baker in America, and we had dinner at our favorite restaurant, S&P Oyster Co. Basically, it was the perfect no-frills, laid back birthday.
Since my dad’s birthday is just a couple days after mine, we also got to have a family celebration and actual cake 🎂
I’ve also made some major headway on my cookbook! I turned in the manuscript just a couple days before my birthday, I’ve already completed the first round of edits, and I’ve finished all of the photography for the book. It’s such a relief to have all of that work done because MAN it was a LOT! With the majority of the work done, I can finally start to feel excited about publishing my own cookbook 🎉
It’s definitely time to celebrate with some amazing gluten free brownies with peanut butter frosting, amiright?!
When you make these, you’ll want to make my favorite peanut butter frosting for brownies instead of your usual peanut butter frosting. Why? Because my frosting is INSANELY DELICIOUS. So creamy, so peanut buttery, it’s legit.
I feel like I say this so many times, but if you love that chocolate and peanut butter combo, you will absolutely love these brownies. The brownies are already great on their own but there’s just something special about adding frosting to them. Craving more chocolate and peanut butter treats? Try my Reese’s Peanut Butter Cookie Cups, No-Bake Gluten Free Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars, Gluten Free Peanut Butter Blossoms, or my Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Ice Cream Cake.
My fudgy gluten free brownies have already made a splash among gluten free bakers with plenty of rave reviews. They truly are brownie perfection – the frosting just makes them even better. You are going to love these! Enjoy!
