Whisk together 2 large eggs, 1 1/2 cups light brown sugar, 3/4 cup smooth peanut butter, 1/2 cup melted unsalted butter , and 1 tsp. vanilla extract ; fold in dry ingredients. Scrape batter into a buttered 8x8 baking pan. Dollop with 2 Tbsp. strawberry jam ; top with 1 Tbsp. chopped honey-roasted peanuts. Bake at 350e until a tester comes out clean, 35-40 minutes. Sprinkle with flaky sea salt.
