It's been a minute, huh?

Turns out...parenthood is hard you guys. It's like all consuming and add in trying to keep up with various life things (we got a minivan! James broke Michael's computer! There's a global pandemic!), generally feeding our whole family, somewhat keeping the house clean, trying to spend any time on self care or my relationship with Michael, and the little bit of work I do (seriously NO clue how everyone who works full time does it) aaaand...something had to give. Unfortunately that something was this blog. 

But-as I said, there's a global pandemic going on. Which means that Michael is able to work from home (which we are extremely lucky to have that option and I hate that more people aren't in that position). Which has really helped with dividing up house responsibilities and brainstorming ways to be more efficient. Also I'm no longer working outside of the house either. So we decided to give me a few extra hours a week to just go away from the kiddos, let Michael take over, and I can do whatever work sorts of things I need to do. And that includes finding some time to blog again! So hip hip hooray I have some recipes for you!

Way back before Rose was born when James was still more toddler than little boy (*sob*) the two of us decided to bake cookies together. And I had seen these cookies on Instagram that looked super ooey gooey delicious but were a little healthier (maple syrup instead of sugar, gluten-free, dairy free, able to use my homemade peanut butter that I always have lying around...) AND they looked really quick and easy to make (necessary when dealing with a toddler). So we made them together (the little cutie loved the part where we flattened the dough balls) and then ate them together and oooooh they were PERFECT. So chewy. So flavorful. So decadent and delicious, you'd honestly never guess they were anything but pure sinful (not that I believe in food having any morality, all food is good food! And this is my mommy soapbox for today.) 

And James pointed to them and said "I made that." So really the accomplishment almost superseded the tastiness. 

Make 'em. Eat 'em. Do a happy dance that I posted a recipe for you and that of course it's cookies.

Flourless Peanut Butter S'mores Cookies {Gluten-free, Dairy free}
Makes 18-20 cookies
Ingredients:
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter (natural and homemade are ok but only if they're no stir and not drippy)
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp. table salt or fine kosher or sea salt
  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips (dairy free if you want these to be dairy free)
  • 3/4 cup mini marshmallows (make sure they're gluten-free to keep these GF)
Preparation:
  • Preheat oven to 350F degrees. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or silicone baking mat.
  • In a large bowl mix together the peanut butter, maple syrup, egg, vanilla, baking soda and salt until well combined-it will look runny and separated at first but keep mixing it will come together! 
  • Mix in chocolate chips and marshmallows until evenly distributed through the dough.
  • Scoop about 1.5-2 tablespoons (or a large cookie scoop) of dough onto the prepared baking sheet, spaced about 2 inches apart. Slightly flatten each dough ball with your hand. 
  • Bake 10-11 minutes, until cookies are just set and starting to turn a little golden.
  • Cool completely on the baking sheet (this helps them firm up!) then enjoy!
  • Store leftovers in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 5 days (they won't last that long).
