Roasted Peanut Brownie Recipe


Peanut brownies were one of the all-time favourites.

Mum used to cook these on a regular basis to help fill the school lunch box. Because this recipe uses roasted peanuts they are much nicer. After they are roasted you can put them into a paper bag and press down with a rolling pin and break them into halves so you can gently blow away the shells.


  • 3 oz /90 gm butter
  • 1 small cup sugar
  • 1 beaten egg
  • 1¬† 1/4 cups sifted flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 dessert spoons cocoa
  • 1 cup roasted peanuts with shells removed


Beat the butter and sugar to a cream. Add the beaten egg. Add the dry ingredients and lastly the peanuts. Take spoon fulls of the mixture and roll into balls and press down with a fork on a cold greased tray. Bake at 180 C/350 F for 15 to 20 minutes (if you are using a fan-forced oven  then you will need to lower the temperature by up to 10 degrees centigrade and/or adjust the time). Leave on a rack to cool.

    Hi, one cup is 250 ml cup. If you don’t like it too sweet then you can put in slightly less. Good to experiment a bit to find what suits you. Happy baking!

    Currently it seems like Movable Type is the top blogging platform available right now.
    (from what I’ve read) Is that what you’re using on your blog?

    With havin so much written content do you ever run into
    any problems of plagorism or copyright violation? My blog has a lot of
    unique content I’ve either written myself or outsourced
    but it looks like a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without
    my authorization. Do you know any solutions to help protect against content
    from being stolen? I’d definitely appreciate it.
