chocolate and peanut butter treats

Mmmm! Doesn't it look good? I adapted this recipe by substituting the flour by whole-wheat flour and by cutting the amount of butter and sugar, but I promise you no-one could tell!!!
Chocolate and peanut butter treats
28 treats
1 1/2 cup whole-wheat flour
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

3/4 cup peanut butter
1 egg
2 tablespoons milk
3/4 cup powdered sugar
  1. In a large bowl, mix the flour, cocoa, and baking soda.
  2. In another bowl, blend the butter, brown sugar, sugar, 1/4 cup peanut butter, egg, and milk until smooth.
  3. Add to the flour mixture and combine until homogeneous.
  4. Shape the dough into 28 balls.
