Low Sugar Peanut Butter Filled Chocolate Cocoa Cookies

8 Comments

I just realized how many words are involved in the title of this recipe.
The title is pretty descriptive.

These cookies are a chocolate cookie with peanut butter in the middle.
The only sugar that has been added to it came from the peanut butter. You are welcome to use the real thing. I prefer to go low on the sugar.

  1. These look good. I've always heard most recipes only need about half the sugar they call for, lol.

  3. My nephew can't eat peanut butter, so I'm thinking I could try putting Hershey's Chocolate Spread in the middle. I have no idea if it will work, but worth a try.
