  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x13-inch baking pan.

  4. Bake in the preheated oven until the edges of the brownies are crisp and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out mostly clean, 35 to 45 minutes.

I did not read the reviews prior to starting this recipe. I added everything together except for the flour (I began adding the dry ingredients one-by-one after creaming butters, sugars, etc). I used 1/2 cup of Hershey's cocoa and noticed how thick the mixture already was and then read the reviews. So I modified the recipe by adding only 1 cup of flower AND 1 container of vanilla Greek yogurt. I baked as instructed and they were delicious.

I really hate giving recipes bad reviews but ...It has more of a cookie texture and is a bit dry. When making the batter it reminded me of cookie batter and I had to pat it into the pan evenly... it did not pour and spread. For the chocolate flavor you do need to add a bit more cocoa powder as suggested also.This was not a hit for my family.

I should have known that there was too much flour when it was more like a cookie dough --- it definitely didn't 'pour' into the pan. And I only cooked it for 22 minutes. Dry, dry, dry!

as a brownie recipe, this is terrible. the batter is too thick and dry, its like cookie dough (as a previous reviewer has written). I saw this recipe and made it while tired and didn't read the reviews first. so when life gives you cookie dough, make cookies. this makes awesome cookies, they were a hit at the party I took them to. brownies-1 star. cookies-4 stars.

Really good brownies. The peanut butter flavor is more subtle than you would expect. For people who are worried about these being dry, just throw some ice cream on top!
