Review: Earth Balance & P.B cookie recipe

I recently was able to do a review of multiple Earth Balance and Smart Balance products (yes, they’re both made from the same company-you can learn more about the two brands here).

I was able to get Smart Balance milk, Smart Balance peanut butter and Earth Balance natural butter spread locally at Publix.
I look forward to Whole Foods opening in Pembroke Pines so I can get some coconut spread and some of the other items that are made specifically by Earth Balance.
