Gluten Free Dark Chocolate Fudgy Brownies with Peanut Butter Swirl

It's been a while since my last post and in a effort to bring something new here today, I'm adding this twist on my favorite brownie recipe. If you've tried my brownie recipe then you'll already know how tasty they are.

But add a peanut swirl in there? Excellent.  Peanut butter and chocolate seems to be a classic combination and a win every time in my house.  Also, I haven't tried it yet, but I think the peanut butter could easily be switched out for almond or cashew butter for those with peanut allergies.

These bars would be perfect to take to a get together.  Or with a scoop of ice cream. Let me know if you try it and love it.

I'd love it if you pinned/shared this page when you try this recipe.

Gluten Free Dark Chocolate Fudgy Brownies  w/Peanut Butter Swirl

Fudgy and Chewy Brownies with a Peanut Butter Swirl


  • 100 grams semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil
  • 1 avocado
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup organic coconut palm sugar (or white refined, if preferred)
  • 1 cup almond meal
  • 1/4 cup dark cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup smooth peanut butter


  1. Preheat oven to 350 F.
  2. Grease and line an 8x8 pan with parchment paper. Set aside.
  3. Melt the chocolate chips and coconut oil in a small bowl in the microwave, heating for about 30 second at a time and stirring in between until melted and combined. Set aside.
  4. Mash the avocado in a large bowl (You’ll only need one mixing bowl)
  5. Add the eggs and vanilla. Mix together (I use a fork for this recipe)
  6. Add sugar, almond meal and dark cocoa powder.
  7. Drizzle in the chocolate and coconut mixture, slowly so that the mixture in the bowl doesn’t cool it too fast and turn the coconut oil or chocolate back to a solid. (Really slow. A thin drizzle, while mixing. An extra person to hold the bowl here is handy, but if not, just ground your bowl on a damp cloth to prevent from moving around)
  8. Melt peanut butter and let cool briefly before pouring a continuous random line on top of brownie batter. Use the end of a chopstick or skewer to gently circle through the top part of the peanut butter and the brownie batter to create a swirly pattern.
  9. Once all mixed together, pour into baking pan.
  10. Bake for 25 minutes or until it is not soft and the top springs back when lightly pressed. Let cool in the pan, and then refrigerate for a few hours or overnight.
  11. Slice into squares and serve.
