Whole Wheat Butter-less Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

Happy Friday! Have some cookies:
Whole Wheat Butter-less Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

I don't know if you remember, but way back around last Christmas-time, I made some peanut butter cookies. Those peanut butter cookies were special because, they had no flour and NO BUTTER! I know, it's insanity! Apparently, peanut butter was all the butter those cookies needed. They were great.

But...they've been replaced. 
By these.

These cookies still have no butter, but they are made with WHOLE WHEAT flour. So...if  you're doing the gluten free thing, then these aren't for you. BUT if you love firm on the outside, gooey on the inside, delicious peanut butter chocolate chip cookies made with whole grains and no butter-then these cookies are for you!

Michael and I were both big fans of these. One of the fatal flaws of the flourless/butterless cookies I've already posted was that they were too flimsy, too gooey all over. These are a perfect balance. And, still healthy(ish)! Oh AND they're super quick and easy. Everybody wins! Yayy!
