The Best One Bowl, Chewy Dark Chocolate Brownies

This is absolutely my go-to brownie recipe. These are chewy, rich, and most importantly very quick to come together. No melting butter or chocolate.

Brown Butter Brownies

I have a confession to make… in general, I think out of the box brownie mixes are better than brownies from scratch. Crazy, I know. But it’s true. I haven’t found a brownie recipe that really beats Ghirardelli Triple Chocolate mix. But! These brown butter brownies come close. And they offer a rich nuttiness (thanks to the browned butter) that’s distinct and delicious.

(Pea)Nut Butter Swirl Brownies

I’m being cutesy with the title because I plan to try these again with almond butter (or cashew butter, or pecan butter…). The base is what matters, and it’s a solid foundation for swirling in some nut-butter goodness.
