I love to cook, and I love to bake but always with a healthy
twist. I especially enjoy cooking with my kids! The bigger the mess
they make, the louder they laugh!
With summer winding down, I miss my camp days. I have fond
memories of roasting marshmallows by a campfire and eating s'mores.
Since my kids are too little to sit quietly (ANYWHERE) around a
campfire, we enjoy s'mores in our kitchen. We tried microwaving
s'mores, but this activity was only entertaining for 20 seconds as
we watched the marshmallow explode.
For a longer afternoon activity, I experimented by combining my
four-ingredient healthy, gluten-free peanut butter cookie with my
favorite campfire summer treat!
My son used his arm muscles by stirring the ingredients together
until smooth. My daughter used her sneaky skills and ballet moves
by trying to tiptoe off with marshmallows.
This recipe could be one of the easiest, yummiest cookies ever
and anything with s'mores is super fun and delicious for
