Peanut Butter Brownies, But Better

In this nutter butter brownie recipe, we’re keeping the PB and adding to it.

Can I use a pan smaller than 18×13?

Yes! Your brownies will be a bit thicker, so you’ll want to make sure they are baked completely when you pull them out of the oven. That said, if you don’t have an 18×13 pan, don’t worry! You should be fine making this nutter butter brownie recipe in a slightly smaller pan. If you’re looking for a good 18×13 pan for your future bakes, we love these Nordic Ware Baking Sheets  from Amazon!

What You’ll Need


  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 cubes salted butter (softened)
  • 2 tbsp vanilla
  • ½ cup cocoa
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 ½ cups whole wheat flour (can substitute white flour if desired)
  • ½ tsp salt
  • One large package of Nutter Butter cookies
  • ¼ cup creamy peanut butter


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F and grease an 18×13 inch sheet pan. (I recommend the Nordic Ware Baker’s Half Sheet.)
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the sugar, butter, vanilla, and cocoa. Then, beat in the eggs.
  3. With the mixer on low speed, add in the sifted flour and salt. Mix until fully combined, scraping the sides down as needed. 
  4. Pour the batter into the pan and spread until evenly covering the pan.
  5. Scoop the peanut butter into a microwave safe bowl and heat for 15-20 sec or until warm. Drizzle the peanut butter over the batter, and use a spoon or small spatula to swirl it in without fully mixing.
  6. Crush Nutter Butter cookies into chunks and sprinkle evenly over the batter.
  7. Bake for 20-25 minutes and then let them cool.  Enjoy!
