Chocolate Chip with Peanut Swirled Cookies

Ive been working on eating a little bit healthier and attempting to lose the last bit of baby weight…problem is..I LOVE cakes and cookies! I have a hard time just saying NO! I wish there was such thing as healthy cookies! 😉 Alas, there aren’t any that will help me lose weight, so that means they’re off limits…for a short time! 😛

Even though they are off limits to me, doesn’t mean I can’t make them for other people! I still love to bake! So when my fiance needed some cookies for a bake sale, I was jumping at the chance to make these babies! Again! Every time I’ve ever made these, they’ve been a hit! They’re soft, chewy, chocolate-y, and have peanut butter swirls all throughout! Ahhh be still my heart. These are my absolute fav! They’re a crowd pleaser every time!

I have posted about these cookies before..but I HAVE to do it again! I can’t let them go unnoticed because they are my favorite and I make them over and over again! You will too 🙂 They come out perfect every time I make them. Ive made them big, think like 4 inches wide, and ive made them bit size, think a half dollar! Small or large, these babies have the perfect texture and greatest flavor! Try them, you won’t be sorry! 🙂
