You got PB in my chocolate
These cookies rock on! It's basically a chocolate cookie with a surprise peanut butter center. Sometimes called magic in the middle cookies I took the butter laden recipe and healthed it up. I know you've seen these before... but this version is much much healthier and they are so addictive. I sent these along with the lasagna to my friends family. The husband and two little boys had no clue these things had prune puree and whole wheat flour in them... and they LOVED them!!! I love when that happens, sneaky sneaky, and they liked it :) Had they known... they probably wouldn't have even tried them.
Give these a try and I'm sure you will fool your kids... unless they are allergic to nuts... then don't make these for them :D Next time I'm making these I'm going to use cashew butter. YUM!!

Chocolate dough recipe
In a large bowl beat together:
½ cup of brown sugar (not packed)
2 Tbs butter, softened
2 - 2.5 oz containers prune puree (I use a 2 pack of gerber baby food)
¼ cup of peanut butter (I used all natural chunky)
Gently fold in:
1 tsp vanilla
In a separate bowl whisk together:
1 ½ cups of whole wheat four
½ cup cocoa powder
½ tsp of baking soda
dash of sea salt (you can leave this out if you are using salted PB)
½ cup of splenda granulated (or 1/2 cup white sugar)
Slowly add dry to wet, set aside.
Peanut butter filling
2/3 cup of chunky peanut butter
1/3 cup of powdered sugar
Now is the fun part
Place on a silicon coated baking mat and flatten with wet fingers (otherwise everything will stick to your fingers).
Bake at 350 for 8 to 10 minutes. CHOW!
