Does Date Created not match the date/time you took the photo?

If not, then get the free Exiftool programme and use something like the following:

Code:
exiftool '-DateTimeOriginal>FileModifyDate' -F *.jpeg

This assumes your EXIF data is correct. If you've modified the date/time in MacOS Photos, then it edits the IPTC fields rather than EXIF so you can first run:
Code:
exiftool '-datetimeoriginal<$IPTC:DateCreated $IPTC:TimeCreated' -overwrite_original *.jpeg
