These cookies have completely satisfied my craving for peanut butter and chocolate! The Soy butter or otherwise known as WOW butter http://www.soybutter.com/ has changed my life. My daughter is highly allergic to peanuts and we have been going without peanut butter now for 9 years, if you know me and my obsession with anything peanut butter you would know that is a big deal. The combination of the Wow butter (peanut butter can be used) and Macadamia nut oil creates a smooth rich moist cookie. My kids love them as do all my friends, safe for schools and kid approved!
