Healthiest Peanut Butter Cookies

 

Healthiest Peanut Butter Cookies are sweet, crunchy and delicious. This classic is turned up a notch with a little chocolate too.


I do believe this is the Healthiest Peanut Butter Cookies recipe I have seen.  Peanut buttery, sweet, crunchy and delicious.  Ed has become cookie obsessed.  He wants me to keep them in stock at all times.  Now, he is actually a very healthy eater and in great shape which brings me to the fact that he does not eat the cookies.  Maybe four or six out of 3 or 4 dozen. The rascal. I give a lot away which makes the neighbors very happy.  I really don’t mind because it challenges me to think up new recipes.  Hey, maybe that is his whole idea.  Did I mention there is a little chocolate too.  The classic has been turned up a notch.
