9 Peanut Butter Cup Peanut Butter Blondies

Total time

60 minutes




  • vegan Peanut Butter Cups
  • about 2 cups vegan chocolate chips (I used 300g, which is just under 2 cups)
  • ½ cup peanut butter (preferably organic, unsalted and unsweetened)
  • ¼ cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tbs coconut oil
  • frozen peas
  • peanut Butter Blondies
  • dry Ingredients:
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp baking powder
  • wet Ingredients:
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • ½ cup vegan Butter (melted)
  • ½ cup peanut butter (preferably organic, unsalted and unsweetened)
  • 1 flax egg (1 tbs ground flax + 3 tbs warm water)


  1. Since they need time to set in the refrigerator, begin by making your peanut butter cups
  2. Line a muffin pan with 12 muffin liners
  3. In a medium bowl, combine the peanut butter (soften in microwave if too hard/solid) and powdered sugar and stir to fully combine
  4. Melt the vegan chocolate chips and coconut oil either in the microwave or over a double boiler on the stove (if in microwave, melt in batches to avoid burning)
  5. Add about 1 tsp of melted chocolate to the bottom of each muffin well, making sure that the chocolate spreads to the entire bottom
  6. Add about 1/2 tbs of the peanut butter sugar mixture on top of the chocolate
  7. Add another heaping 1ish tsp of melted chocolate on top of the peanut butter
  8. Place the muffin tin in the fridge (or freezer if you're impatient like me) for at least 30 minutes before using (or eating!
  9. To make the blondies:
  10. Preheat oven to 350 F
  11. Grease and/or line an 8x8 square pan with parchment paper
  12. For the flax egg, combine ground flax and warm water in a small bowl and stir. Set aside to thicken
  13. In a medium bowl, combine all dry ingredients (flour, baking powder and salt) and stir to combine
  14. In a large bowl, combine the melted vegan butter and brown sugar and stir until incorporated
  15. Add peanut butter to butter and sugar mixture (again, soften your PB in the microwave if your PB is too hard or solid) stirring to combine
  16. Add in flax egg and stir again
  17. Add the flour mixture to the wet ingredients slowly, and stir until just combined
  18. Pour blondie batter into your prepared pan
  19. Take 9 peanut butter cups out of the fridge and remove them from their liner
  20. Place the 9 PB cups into the blondie batter in a 3x3 configuration
  21. Bake in preheated oven for about 30 minutes (a toothpick inserted into the blondies should come out almost clean)
  22. Allow to cool completely before cutting into 9 squares
  23. Enjoy!
