Healthy Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies



Who doesn't love a good cookie? Chewy, gooey and oh-so-delicious, a simple cookie can transform a day, turning it from a bad one into an utterly brilliant.

Of course, packed with processed ingredients and sugars, they're not really all that kind to our waistline - and they're definitely not going to help us squeeze into that little (red) dress this Christmas. So when Sukrin - creators of the most incredibly guilt-free baking goods imaginable (think calorie and carb-free icing "sugar" and all kinds of fat reduced, gluten-free flours under the sun) sent me some of their peanut flour to try, I knew what I had to bake...

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies

Oh yes, it just had to be healthy Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies. Healthy Chocolate Peanut Butter PROTEIN Cookies, to be precise.

I couldn't get much nicer to you, could I?

Enjoy,
