Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies

‘Twas the night before a holiday game day and I needed a quick and easy cookie to bake and bring with me.

As much as I wanted to bake a fun holiday themed cookie, chocolate and peanut butter was calling my name.

I have made regular peanut butter cookies a number of times. I usually try to get away with using egg white to make them healthier and last time I also to substituted stevia for regular sugar.  Boy, was that a baking fail.

This time, I still included egg whites, but decided to keep the regular sugar and get creative in a different way.  How about using half regular and half chocolate peanut butter?

Such a good decision.

Couldn’t be easier!

I made a double batch by simply doubling all of the ingredient portions.

(1 cup regular + 1 cup chocolate peanut butter + 6 tbsp. egg whites + 2 cups sugar).
