I know that cutting your sugar intake isn’t easy, so it helps to have some healthier sweet recipes sweetened with natural sweeteners like dates. I love that these peanut butter cookies are so easy to make and really yummy. These can be a great substitute for regular peanut butter cookies and kids like them too!
