One day, my husband whined ‘can’t you make any healthy cookies?’ with a very pouty look on his face. So cute and so pouty that I had to try and come up with something.

I love peanut butter cookies, and he loves chocolate chip, so I combined them into one, made with whole wheat flour.

Now I DO use regular sugar, as I do not really believe in using such an enormous amount of a sugar substitute.

A cookie is a cookie is a cookie, and either way, we shouldn’t be consuming 10 of them at once, whether it be made with real or ‘fake’ sugar. Right?

I apparently never remember that, and also like to think ‘the more, the merrier’ applies to food.

Yum.

I start with 100% whole wheat flour, which does add a nice, nutty taste.

This is our favorite peanut butter by far, and you must try it.

It gives an additional ‘crunch’ to the cookies because it had flaxseeds in it.

Ahh, more texture.

I rescued this 1/2 cup then proceeded to eat the entire jar with my fingers.

The more, the merrier!

Don’t ya’ll just love packed brown sugar lumps?

This mixture is sugar, butter, and peanut butter.

It just cries out, ‘eat me!’

I add some dark chocolate chippers.

And scoop out tiny lumps with my hands.

Yes, my hands are clean. Weirdo.

My husband loves these, while I prefer my cookies to be a bit more….chewy.

I wouldn’t consider these dry, but I don’t think they can be classified as soft. What do we call them, then?

A confession: I’m still opening the oven door mid-bake. Still.

I have no patience. .

It’s just so exciting!

A plate o’ goodies.

These will disappear in about 4.7 seconds.

Delectable.

Is that a word? I thought it was, but when I typed it, it didn’t look correct. Someone please alert me if it isn’t. And please find a better word to describe these cookies. You can be my own personal thesaurus.

Let me know if you like. :)
