Ever since we got our dog Kemper we’ve been dipping into the peanut butter jar for a little treat for him. And, of course, we slip our spoon in once more for an extra bit for ourselves. I’ve fallen head over heels back in love with peanut butter.
So when I had a chance to make these Low Carb Peanut Butter Chocolate Chunk Cookies from Harvard Sweet Boutique I could not pass it up! Peanut Butter & Chocolate are always a win but then you can say you’re being healthy since they are low carb!!! Seriously, such good cookies with only 12grams of carbs per 1-oz cookie!
And besides great cookies, Harvard Sweet Boutique, is having a new tasting party this Thursday in Hudson, MA… AND YOU’RE INVITED!!! Check out the info below!!
