Peanut Butter Cookies

Peanut Butter Cookies

Peanut butter cookies are a pantry staple, they are needed at all times! Traditionally peanut butter cookies are packed with sugar, flour, butter, and eggs which tend to be big allergens in today’s society. By eliminating all of the big allergens it helps to decrease inflammation in the body — this will leave you to feel better than ever and then give you the ability to eat like 10 of the cookies without feeling guilty or getting a tummy ache (best of both worlds😉). These cookies include 5 simple and healthy ingredients, which make it easy to whip up a batch when you are feeling that sweet tooth come on!
