Peanut Butter and Cream Cheese Stuffed Brownies

Saturday, March 5, 2011

I finally took a photo of myself more than midway through my weight loss journey. With the advice from a fellow Medifaster, Helen, I used Power Point to put it all together. It was very easy to do and I am not sure why I waited so long to do one of these Before and After photos. When I look back at my old photos, I can't believe how far I have come on this journey. I am truly happy that I have come this far and I am soooo looking forward to reaching my goal this summer. I will definitely say that I have found so much inspiration in so many of you through the Medifast face book page and through the community on My Medifast. You guys are the best and I don't think I could have done it with you! It is the support, knowledge, advice, awesome recipes, and the relationships that make this a wonderful experience. I truly hope I can inspire others to take a part in this journey as well. I still have 20 more lbs to go to get to my goal weight then it is off to transition! I will eventually see you guys on the other side!


This is the recipe I wanted to share with you today. You may have already made this already, but if you haven't, this is delicious. I wanted a creamy peanut butter center in my brownie so I decided to try a mixture of PB2 and cream cheese. I loved how it came out. You don't have to take the additional step of dividing the brownie batter in half and then spreading the peanut butter mixture and finally adding the second half of the brownie batter over the top. Sometimes we just want to hurry and eat it LOL. If you want, try spooning the peanut butter mixture over the top and swirling a knife through it so that you form swirls in the brownie batter. Works just a well! Enjoy this yummy dessert!

Make the brownies as directed on the back of the package by adding 3 tbsp water to the mix and stir until combined. Set aside.
Place cream cheese in the microwave for 10 sec until softened. Add PB2 and 1/2 tbsp of water to the softened cream cheese. Stir until nice and creamy.

Use the disposable containers given with the brownies or any other container sprayed with cooking spray and pour half the brownie mixture into the container. Pour the peanut butter cream mixture over the brownie mixture and spread evenly over the top. Add the rest of the brownie mixture evenly over the top.
