Healthy Nutter Butter Cookies

If I had to pick a favorite packaged cookie it would probably be Nutter Butters. I love how they are crispy on the outside, creamy on the inside, and sweet but also salty from the peanut butter. I had these all the time as a kid and every time I eat them it brings me back to my childhood. I decided to try and attempt a slightly “healthier” version of these cookies and they turned out amazing. I think they are even better then original nut butters and they only require 4 ingredients! They can easily be made vegan by using dairy free yogurt and they are gluten free!
