By Carmela Villegas of Casa San Luis

As you have all noticed, through the different recipes that I have shared with you that I love peanut butter and chocolates. So this cookie recipe combines all those ingredients.

These cookies are my go to sweets during these rainy days. Pair a warm cookie with a glass of cold milk and snuggle in bed wearing your favorite PJs while listening to the rain drops on your roof.

What’s great with cookie recipes is that you may freeze the dough up to 2 months. This way, if you’re craving for just one big cookie you can save the rest for another time. This idea is useful also when you have guests coming over at the last minute since it doesn’t take much time to bake.

I like to use chocolate bars that I just chop into large pieces because I like chunky cookies.  I also mixed dark and milk chocolate.

You may substitute the peanut butter with almond butter and the sugars with Coco Natura.

about THE FAT KID

I gained weight because of a sedentary lifestyle and overly indulging in foods I knew were bad for me, eating out too often, taking the easy route (microwavable dishes) and not caring what went in my body, before I knew it reached 240 lbs. I lost weight through pure dedication, tireless hours of hard work and yes, food. I cooked my way to fitness, making sure to only feed myself tasty well prepared dishes with all the right stuff, the perfect fuel, taking me down to 150lbs. Of course I indulge from time to time, as the fat kid still lurks inside of me; here you will find a little bit of everything for the sole purpose of sharing my passion for food and life.
