Butterscotch Brownie Cookies


I cannot tell you all how many times I tried to make “healthy” brownies. Finally I gave up and gave the brownie cookie a try. I decided to add in some peanut butter chips because peanut butter and chocolate go together as well as PB&J, right?!

I do have to tell you tho how this little recipe came about tho lol. I had every intention of perfecting the Nutella chocolate chip cookie recipe this day. However, when I went to get my ingredients together, I discovered my Nutella jar was pretty much empty. My daughter (bless her) had finished off my GIANT jar of Nutella!

So I decided to search the cupboards and fridge to see what I DID have on hand and what I could come up with. Since I still had cocoa powder, I decided to go ahead and give brownies another go. Then I was like “lets just make it a cookie instead”.

So I gave it a shot, and surprisingly these came out pretty good after the first try!
