LovePeanutButtercollageWe’re convinced that everyone who isn’t allergic loves peanut butter cookies. Even the ones who are allergic probably do too. But we think plain ol’ regular peanut butter cookies are the epitome of boring. Sure, they’re good, and a viable cookie option especially when nothing else is available, but let us reiterate. They are b-o-r-i-n-g.

This month we were sponsored by Peanut Butter & Co. and were sent both the “Dark Chocolate Dreams” and “The Bee’s Knees” peanut butter flavors. These were absolutely perfect for getting our creative cooking juices flowing (Would that be called brain jus?) and we immediately gravitated toward a cookie, because you know what? An interesting cookie doesn’t have to be difficult to make. Even with the addition of a drizzle, these are some of the easiest cookies to assemble. The only partially time consuming part is waiting for the cookie dough to chill.

What we love most, other than the fun assortment of peanut butter flavors, is that Peanut Butter & Co.’s products are made from only USA grown peanuts and are all-natural, contain zero hydrogenated oils, zero cholesterol, zero trans-fats and, zero high fructose corn syrup. Every flavor except The Bee’s Knees is gluten-free, vegan, and certified kosher.

We’re hope for another chance to experiment soon in the kitchen with Peanut Butter & Co. Our eyes are on White Chocolate Wonderful, and The Heat is On flavors. But in the meantime, you can find us sneaking massive spoonfuls of what we have left from making the cookies. Don’t judge.

Find Peanut Butter & Co. on Amazon too!
