I typically don’t make too many desserts, because, well, we have to eat them once they’re made. Cookies are frequently the exception to that rule. With cookies, they’re so easy to just keep a few out and stick the rest in the freezer. Then I can take out a cookie or two when I really need something sweet. These peanut butter cookies are just perfect for that. They’ve only got five ingredients, so they’re made in no time. I completely forgot to make the traditional peanut butter cookie cross hatch in them before I baked them, and they still turned out fine. The baking soda and the amount of oil in the peanut butter help these cookies to spread. If you’re having trouble with that though, baking soda helps cookies to spread and baking powder helps them to puff, so just add a little of whichever you need. I enjoy these cookies for a little mid afternoon pick-me-up. I’ll start to get tired, and I’ll get the munchies when I’m struggling to concentrate. These are just perfect, with only 2 points + per cookie, a little fiber and a little protein, they’re a great snack for me without me going overboard.
Chocolate and peanut butter – the best couple ever. And they definitely work well together in this Chocolate and Peanut Butter Cookie Roll Ups Recipe I created one day when I was craving Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. This actually started out to be a simple, low calorie Peanut Butter Cookie Recipe that I came across on Pinterest and wanted to try. But because they are flourless peanut butter cookies, the batter spread while baking, and made these HUGE cookies. With some spare chocolate chips on hand, I decided to make a quick chocolate melt, spread it on the cookie, and then roll it up. They were so good! If you don’t care for the chocolate, you can just make the flourless peanut butter cookies. They are very moist and chewy, and don’t quite have that cookie texture, so I think they work better in this roll up recipe. But either way, they are large and in charge, and are very filling and satisfying. I drizzled mine with a bit of the melted chocolate as well. These would be great as a dessert and/or topped with low calorie ice cream or fat free cool whip. Enjoy!
