What in the world is better than peanut butter and chocolate cookie to nosh on after a long day? How about a cookie that's a mere 55 calories? Thanks to the clever chef Rocco DiSpirito from Z Living's show Now Eat This!, this low-calorie cookie recipe brings a whole new meaning to the words "healthy indulgence."
Take it from the chef himself: ”When I think of great duos, several pop into mind: Batman and Robin, Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis, Brooks and Dunn, and the best of all, peanut butter and chocolate," he says. "If you love peanut butter and chocolate, now you can get your fix but without the calories. (I didn't take out all the calories; I left in 55). Everyone knows that these are two tastes that go great together, but this confection takes the combo to a whole new level of healthy decadence. While there isn't any jelly in the cookie, I got my fruity sweetness from dried cranberries. Feel free to use mini peanut butter chips in these cookies if you can find them."
