    We thought this recipe was great! I cut the recipe in half for the two of us, using only 2 eggs, and baked it in a 13x9-inch pan. I also substituted peanut butter chips for the peanuts, which was just a personal preference. We really enjoyed the bars and I will definitely make them again!

    I have made these Brownies several times! YUMMY! I can not bake them in pan size listed, as I only have a toaster oven, so I use 2 -11 x7 pan and they work out very well, moist abd chewie. They don't last long as they have become my BBF's favorite.

    Concerned about the amount of eggs. Can you substitute egg whites for some of the eggs??
