c. smooth peanut butter, divided
flax egg (1 T. ground flaxseed meal + 2 T. water, mix & let sit 5 minutes)
c. pure maple syrup
t. baking soda
c. cocoa powder
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease an 8×8 in. square baking pan w/ cooking spray. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together ½ c. of the peanut butter and the remaining ingredients until smooth. Pour the batter into the prepared pan. Put the remaining ½ c. of peanut butter into a microwave safe bowl and heat for 10 seconds or until slightly melted. Place a spoonful of peanut butter evenly at each corner of the pan (about 4 total). Take a large butter knife and beginning at 1 corner of the pan, begin to make swirls with the peanut butter, creating a chocolate peanut butter mosaic :) Bake for 30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the brownies comes out clean. Let cool completely before slicing into even squares.
