Peanut Brownies

Celebrations, of all kinds I feel, should not be avoided. This important day (or days) provide us an opportunity to pause our everyday hurries and take a step back in order to reflect and appreciate where we have come.


Most notable was the bunch of birthdays in May that I had celebrated. Birthday: a repository of happiness that flourishes naturally from long accumulations of all good things. This is a day to be revered and stamped of golden memory. 16? 44? 100? Whatever the age, our birthday is to be celebrated because we have phased a remarkable year and its time to look forward to the coming year, and so there is no better reason for us not to enjoy this day. I have provided here a recipe that have drawn inspiration from a contemporary vision-a current amber of all things that surround me today in London. This city, enriched with so much culture, languages, tradition and all the buzz alike, draws a collection of fiery vibes that threads us with excitement and anticipation of everyday living. It is almost impossible to pin down where this spurt of revolution came, but that doesn’t stop up from enjoying this whole experience now; not tomorrow or next year, but today in particular. It thus goes without saying that this recipe has been cultivated for joyous occasions to uplift oneself, but more importantly this is a dish that is celebratory to oneself or better, to the heart. For this special occasion, I have provided a dessert recipe and I hope that you will enjoy this recipe as much as I do. Here’s to celebration!

  1. Preheat oven to 170°C | Gas Mark 3 | 338°F. Place baking paper over an 8 inch square baking tin.
  2. Beat together peanut butter, butter and sugar in a bowl using a wooden spoon.
    Once combined, incorporate egg and vanilla bean paste into mixture.Then add ground almonds, chopped chocolate and almond flakes. Combine then transfer into baking tin.
  3. Leave in the oven for 25 minutes, in which the top will be lightly brown and an inserted skewer will come out clean. Once done, allow to cool before slicing into squares.
