Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

Peanut butter and chocolate is one of my all time favorite food combinations. It is really hard to go wrong with something that contains peanut butter and chocolate. I was craving some cookies but was having a hard time finding a recipe that was points plus friendly. I decided to combine a couple of recipes and tried a batch. They still weren't quite right so I changed a few things and wa-lah! I created these delicious peanut butter chocolate chip cookies. My mom and sister introduced me to Peter Pan Whipped Peanut Butter, which I used in this recipe because you can use more for less points plus. I don't like it as well to just eat but it does work nicely in these cookies. Each cookie is only two points plus so it is a perfect little after dinner dessert or quick afternoon snack. I hope you enjoy them too!

  1. Um, yum!!! They are delicious and I was meant to make these cookies tonight--I had exactly a 1/4c butter on the butter dish and an egg white already done. Don't judge me for these next two things though. I let shelby lick the peanut butter measuring cup before I put it in the dishwasher and the flat bottom glass I used maybe had wine in it. :)
