Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies ~ Only 5 Ingredients!

Sometimes I sit and rack my brain for recipe ideas.  Sometimes I simply turn to my H and ask him what I should cook up.  His response is usually some kind of dessert that’s not too “healthy” or “weird” mostly because he wants to reap the benefits i.e. eat it all 😀

This week he suggested I make peanut butter cookies.  But not just any old peanut butter cookie, chocolate peanut butter cookies!  Normally they are packed with sugar so for this recipe I used xylitol.  I wanted to keep these low in sugar and find that xylitol is the best natural low-sugar substitute for baking, but if you’re not a fan, feel free to sub with stevia, honey, coconut sugar or your sweetener of choice.

With only 5 ingredients, these cookies are so quick and easy to make you’ll wonder why you don’t make these every week –  maybe you will 😉  I know my H approved and will most likely be asking for them all the time now!
