I have made these over and over again. They never fail and are a lovely chocolatey Peanut Brownie. I tend to put 3/4 cup peanuts and an extra Tablespoon of Cocoa. Have also substituted the peanuts with toasted almonds when I was out of peanuts (cut in half) and this was also amazing. Firm favourite recipe

Makes perfect Biccies. Love this recipe, so does the family.

Awesome recipe! The biscuits come out crunchy and as you’d expect for a nice peanut brownie. I tend to put extra cocoa powder in as I like mine super chocolaty. I also don’t use as many peanuts. This recipe is a keeper and they are easy to make. I also have used chopped up almonds and it’s worked just as well.

Excellent easy n ooh so yummy

Partial to the odd peanut or so but never usually finish them so they wind up in the peanut brownies, put them in the blender first (never really liked the chunky nut thing) chuck them in the bread maker (dough setting) after mixing use my 1tbsp measure as a mold bang them out on the tray stick them in the oven ,lovely!

Made these for my granddad. They turned out very well.

Good simple recipe.

These cookies were good but we used raw sugar instead or white sugar. The cookies tasted great and they are easy to make. I would recommend this to others.

Easy to make and delicious!

Great recipe. Next time I will only put in 1/2 to 3/4 cup of peanuts.

Great recipe my Mum used for years, but I don’t think it’s Debbies? Isn’t this the New Zealand Edmonds Cookbook recipe?

My husband loves these and bakes them often. The recipe is a little dry so I add water to my mixture and this has always produced the best peanut brownies!

NZs finest peanut brownie recipe right here! ❤️

Best cookies ever. Absolutely love them and reminds me of the ones my Nana use to make me.

I used milo instead of cocoa. In lockdown. No egg either. Best peanut brownies ever.

Best recipe for peanut brownies. I have been using this recipe for many years now. I do add extra coco powder though and cook for 12-14 minutes. We don't have a mixer so we just mix by hand and always turn out perfect. And be sure to make 2 batches at a time because otherwise they wouldn't last 5 minutes!

Love them, they turned out perfect with a teaspoon of peanut butter. Yummy.

This is an excellent recipe, I have made it several times but each time with cashew nuts instead of peanuts... devine!! Also I make 16 to 18 cookies (so a little bigger) and cook for 13 or 14 mins and they are still yummy and soft, sorta chewy if you prefer them that way :)

Excellent had my young son do the mix while I called out instructions, excellent results thankyou

INCREDIBLE cookies! Made these with the family and turned out amazing. Definitely recommended.

This is the recipe from the cookbook for "flatters", shouldn't be claiming as your own 'Debby'

these are delicous and very easy to make my dad loves them and they are even better if you roast the peanuts thnx so much for giving this recipie (:

Now my go-to. easy and great. Nice crisp biscuit.

These cookies please me.

Easy, crispy and yummy. Instead of 1 cup sugar used 1/2 a cup of honey and 1/4 tsp of baking soda. Made 15 brownies using a metal cookie scoop.

They were simply fantastic. Best ever peanut brownie recipe I have used.

So easy to make and the best success ever.

Love these. My go to peanut brownie recipe

These peanut brownies are so easy and very tasty!!!

I have made this recipe several times and it has produced delicious peanut brownies every time. Works every time, a firm favorite.

Yep its same as edmonds , I double everything as well to make a decent batch as they don't last long.Try chocolate chips but decrease suger that's what I do.

Very tasty. I think 'Debby' might have got her recipe from Edmonds Food for Flatters ;)

My whole family LOVE these biscuits! I make them with white chocolate buttons for the school lunchboxes (as peanuts are banned) and peanuts for at home. Double batch every time! :)

My family loves these. Quick and easy to make. I roast the peanuts for a bit.. adds an extra flavour factor

Simply delicious!! Quick, simple and easy. I made these with peanut m&m's, and they were fantastic!
