Peanut-Butter Swirl Brownies

Rating: 3.55 stars

Fudge Brownies

Rating: 3.84 stars
The right ingredients make this decadent classic healthier, but every bit as delicious: Pureed sweet potatoes add moisture, sweetness, and a fudgy consistency; whole-wheat flour is a perfect choice for dense, bold-flavored brownies; natural, unsweetened cocoa powder packs far more antioxidant power than other forms of chocolate.

Coconut-Chocolate Swirl Brownies

Sweetened condensed milk adds an unmistakable richness to the coconut batter for these swirly treats. When marbleizing the coconut and brownie batters, make sure the butter knife reaches the bottom of the pan.

Chewy Brownies

Unsweetened chocolate and brown sugar impart a rich, well-rounded flavor, while adding a bit of oil to the batter results in the addictively chewy texture that makes this version an instant classic.
