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!
