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!
