As many of you have probably figured out I LOVE COOKIES! I am for sure a modern day cookie monster. Sometimes a girl just needs a cookie (or a tray of cookies).
Generally I create and enjoy recipes that avoid overly processed grains and refined sugar, but sometimes you have to make an exception. Sometimes you need to throw all caution to the wind. These chocolate peanut butter cookies are one of those times.
These cookies are the love child of a brownie and a cookie – who has a thing for peanut butter cups 😉 I’m not judging, cause they are delicious!
Best time to enjoy these cookies:
- having a bad day
- having a party
- watching a movie
- had a hard/busy day
