The most delicious Date and Peanut Butter Cookies you didn’t know you needed until now…

These cookies are simple, yet taste delicious and are made using ingredients you more than likely already have in your kitchen!

I also love the fact that these cookies are sweetened using dates and no other sweetener, thank you Mother Nature!

Give these cookies a try if you are a classic peanut butter cookie lover and are looking for healthier- version!
