Peanut Butter Cream Cheese Swirl Brownies - Gluten free

Well, we never made it to the garden store.  After some mid day cleaning, we were on our way there after just picking up a base for our outdoor umbrella.  However when leaving the patio store parking lot my hubby decides to back my car into a curb dislocating the muffler.  There was some serious rattling going on so we figured it needed to go to the shop.   Luckily my sisters boyfriend offered to take a look and managed to put the muffler back where it belongs. PHEW!  Other than a few small scraps the car is okay.  After than I didn't feel like going to the garden center.   I just went to the bulk barn and stocked up on a few things for some future baking.

I think there is no better way to get yourself out of a baking lull other than brownies.  Fudgy brownies with peanut butter cream cheese swirl.
