Meh. The texture was a little weird to me, I can't really call it a brownie, or a cake, or a cookie. Wasn't an awful texture, just one I've never had before. The taste was just ok, these have a lot of sugar in them, but did not taste sweet. I used a no-stir natural crunchy peanut butter, that could be the reason maybe. I just wanted something different for dessert, and I've wanted to try this recipe and the Blonde Brownies I recipe from this site for a while. This one won since I had no chocolate chips on hand. While I thought these brownies were just so-so, a chocolate frosting helped. I used canned frosting spread over the warm brownies to melt like a glaze. I bet they would be good warm with ice cram and hot fudge(and banana, PB and banana...so good together!). They really do need some chocolate, but I might as well just make regular brownies with PB in them. I'll make these again, with some experimenting(nutella instead of PB or using less white sugar but upping brown sugar or maybe some mashed banana, or add chocolate chips or etc, etc, etc.... I always have these ingredients on hand, and they're easy to make, so definitely worth a do-over. Thank you for the recipe and for getting my creative cooking juices flowing! :) EDIT: I wasn't too happy with them yesterday, but, these taste way better the second day! I've upped this to 4 stars. :)
