Do You Like S’mores?

I have an easy amazingly delicious cookie recipe to share! I combined my 4 ingredient healthy, gluten free peanut butter cookie with my favorite campfire summer treat- S’MORES!

To fully capture the decadence of this cookie, I collaborated with a new mom friend who I met through a Chicago Moms In Business Group. Turns out, we live 3 blocks from each other and both have two kids to chase after.

Shayna, who owns Shayna Hardy Photography, promptly arrived with her two boys for a play date and business meeting! While the kids played with trains, we discussed balancing work (my food and legal writing and her family photography business) and mommyhood.

Shayna offered wonderful photographing tips, took beautiful photographs of our baking play date, and I supplied the recipe and the food! This could be one of the easiest yummiest cookie recipes ever and anything with S’mores is super fun and delicious for everyone! Get messy! Have fun! And eat healthy!

5.)  Take another spoonful of batter, roll into a ball, flatten, and press firmly over S’mores and connect top layer of batter to bottom layer of batter.

7.)  Bake cookies for 12 minutes or until the edges appear golden brown.

8.)  Allow cookies to cool before digging in (I know this is hard!) but when they first come out of the oven, they are crumbly and the marshmallow needs time to deflate.

9.)  These PB cookies are ridiculously delicious alone too!
