Your furry friends will love the new twist on the traditional Dog Safe Carob Brownies with the addition of Peanut Butter Swirled over the top!
PEANUT BUTTER SWIRL
- 4 ounces Neufchâtel cheese, softened
- 1/2 cup reduced fat creamy peanut butter
- 1 large egg
- ½ cup vegetable oil
- 3 tablespoons honey
- 4 large eggs
- 1 cup whole wheat flour
- ¼ cup carob powder
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- In a medium bowl, mix Neufchâtel cheese, peanut butter together until there are no visible white streaks. Add egg and vanilla, mix until light and creamy; set aside.
- Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Line an 8-inch square baking pan with aluminum foil. Generously grease bottom and sides using a baking spray with flour; set aside.
- In a large bowl, whisk oil, honey, 4 eggs and 2 teaspoons vanilla until just combined. Add flour, carob powder and baking powder and mix until just combined. Note: small clumps of carob may be present.
- Evenly spread batter into lined baking pan. Drop scoop peanut butter-cream cheese mixture over brownie batter. Using a toothpick or butter knife, cut through both mixtures to form swirls. Gently tap pan a few times over the counter to settle any gaps that may have formed from the swirls.
- Bake for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
- Cut into squares appropriate for the size of your dog. ENJOY!
For thinner brownies, use a 9-inch square baking pan.
