Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Cookies

DSC_0226

This is a fairly simple peanut butter cookie recipe. I like them because they are very low in sodium, contain protein and whole grains, and combine peanut butter and chocolate chips. To be honest it’s that last part that is my favourite. Delicious! For maximal enjoyment I recommend that you enjoy these cookies with a glass of cold milk.
