I think cookies must be the ultimate comfort food out there.

Don’t get me wrong… I LOVEEEE cake!

But if I am ever having a rough day, I bake cookies instead of cakes.

Maybe it’s coz they are FASTER to make…

And even EASIER to eat 😉

These small batch healthy peanut butter chocolate chip cookies are my absolute FAVORITE cookies to make when I am trying to cheer myself up and/or craving peanut butter…heheh

MY OTHER RECIPES


They are even topped off with melted dark chocolate, chopped up pistachios and shredded coconut… YUMMMMMM!

Best of all, these cookies are on the “HEALTHIER” side.

They are FLOURLESS (gluten-free) and made with oats and they also have NO butter or margarine.

Also, they don’t use granulated sugar and instead, they are made with coconut sugar (which is considered a better alternative!)

By the way, one thing that really ANNOYS me about most cookie recipes is that they yield SO MANY cookies.

Well, this recipe for SMALL BATCH healthy peanut butter chocolate chip cookies will only yield 8-10 medium cookies…Yay!

These cookies taste INCREDIBLE when they come out of the oven and you would want to eat them straight from the pan!

But, I urge you not to skip the topping coz that’s what takes these cookies over the top!

I was watching the Oscars yesterday and dunking these cookies in a glass of Nutchello and it was pure bliss 😀

Have you guys tried Nuchello? It’s sooooo good!

There are a few flavors available but I am CRAZY  about the dark chocolate and walnut flavored one.

It’s rich and creamy and has less than a 100 calories per serving and pairs perfectly with these NUTTY and CHEWY cookies 🙂

Moreover, it also has no artificial colors or saturated fats and is very refreshing, when poured over ice!
