Soy Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies – An Allergy Alternative to Peanut Butter Cookies; at last, an allergy free alternative to peanut butter cookies that everyone can enjoy.
My daughter loves her peanut butter cookies, as do I. My son is not fond of the flavor of peanut butter and my wife has a slight allergy to it so up to this point Olivia and I were the only ones at our house who ate one of my favorite childhood cookies.
When Spouse spotted some soy butter at the supermarket and brought it home, I admit I was skeptical but the texture of peanut butter was there and although the taste was milder than real peanut butter, the flavor was definitely there.
The real test at our house would be the cookies though and they did not disappoint there either. Even my non peanut butter liking son liked these cookies which I attribute to the slightly milder flavour.
