Boy, do I have a treat for you today.
Peanut butter + Chocolate OVERLOAD, in the form of Double Doozies.
If you happen to be unfamiliar with Double Doozies (as I was before meeting my husband), they are basically cookie sandwiches, composed of two cookies with a thick layer of frosting in the middle. In other words, it’s a sugar coma just waiting to happen.
And while this is probably the most decadent thing to come out of my kitchen in a while, my version is still grain-free and naturally sweetened–> meaning you should be able to enjoy these nutrient-dense treats without suffering from crazy spikes in your blood sugar later.
Unless, of course, you gorge yourself on them. Then you’ll still wind up in a coma on the couch. Consider yourself warned.
Fudgy Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Double Doozies
makes 8 cookie sandwiches
16 Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies
1 batch Peanut Butter Fudge Frosting (recipe below)
Assemble 8 of your cooled cookies onto a plate, bottom-side facing up, and spread a thick layer of frosting onto each cookie. Create “sandwiches” with the remaining 8 cookies, then serve immediately, or chill in the fridge for a more solid treat!
As usual, we prefer ours frozen. 😀
Fudgy Peanut Butter Chocolate Frosting
makes about 1/2 cup
1/4 cup creamy natural peanut butter
2 Tablespoons honey
1 Tablespoon cocoa powder
pinch of sea salt
1 teaspoon water, or as needed to thin
In a small bowl, whisk together all the ingredients until smooth and creamy. Add water, as needed, for desired texture.
This frosting spreads easily onto cake and cookies, and will thicken further when chilled.
In fact, it turns into a creamy fudge when frozen on its own!
(It will melt back into frosting quickly upon thawing, but it didn’t really last that long anyway…)
However you serve it, I hope it’s a hit in your home, too!

As usual, this recipe can easily be adjusted to suit your personal tastes. Not a peanut butter fan? Try almond butter instead! Vegans can easily substitute agave or maple syrup for the honey, and use flax eggs in the cookies. (This keeps them properly combined, to boot!) And if you’re trying to stay sugar-free, I’m sure stevia could be used instead, with a little experimenting.

I love your new header…so cute! Wow, these cookies look amazing…super decadent! I have never heard of double doozies..crazy!
Have a great week!
Ok, 3 things:
1) Frozen cookies are where it’s at
2) These look absolutely delicious
3) I absolutely LOVE your new Easter header!!
Thanks! Frozen cookies are the BEST! 😉
That is all.
I made your grain free brownie bites, I used the coconut oil which added another flavor dimension and now after seeing this peanut butter frosting, I am thinking of using butter next time and then adding a dab of this yummy looking frosting on top! I made them in regular size muffin cups and cooked 5 minutes longer, with this frosting they would be “cupcakes”! What a great birthday treat instead of traditional cake! The batch made 12 cupcakes…
That sounds like the best idea EVER. Such a good birthday treat!!
Thanks for sharing your results! 🙂
Double Doozies are the best! …And I love Austin’s chocolate/pb obsession because it makes you post yummy choc/pb treat ideas for all the rest of us who are just as obsessed with that combo! 🙂

This looks AMAZING!! Thank you for all the incredible recipes!!
Thank you for this fantastic, healthy & scrumptious frosting recipe! I made your Flourless Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Blondies without the chips but added an extra egg and cocoa powder to make a chocolate pb cake & this frosting was the perfect topping!! I look forward to trying the frosting on other treats and as a fudge, as you suggest!
These were sooooooo good! Tastes like pb cups, yummm!
I made these last night and wow were they good! I forgot to add the bit of water and used maple syrup instead for the frosting, thanks for two great recipes in one.
