I love Ben and Jerry’s Chunky Monkey ice cream. This cookie evolved from it.
This healthy cookie recipe hits the spot. They have only 56 calories a cookie! They don’t have any eggs or flour in them and are so easy to make. If you taste the batter and decide it isn’t sweet enough, a little bit more honey and a little bit of semi-sweet chocolate chips will do the trick (don’t worry, I won’t tell anyone).
Keep in mind that these cookies are from a healthy recipe with natural sweeteners . . . if you are looking for a different kind of chocolate peanut butter cookie, be sure to check out our favorite ones here.

- Let batter stand for approximately 20 minutes, then drop by heaping spoonfuls onto an ungreased baking sheet.
