It’s camping season! Why not take a classic peanut butter cookie and throw in some mini marshmallows and chocolate chips? I know that part of the fun of eating s’mores is the mess but having them in a soft and sweet cookie is quite the treat! Plus, with a handy cookie scoop, these take about 20 minutes from start to finish. Great for spontaneous cookie cravings. The Ingredients for flourless peanut butter cookies are super easy and not just for those who eat gluten-free cookies! This is such an easy cookie for those who don’t want to bother with extra ingredients. You can omit the marshmallows and chocolate chips but they add such a fun chewy texture and decadent flavour. The cinnamon and ginger are optional as well but they add a fun flavour reminiscent of graham crackers.

Stir them in! It may seem like a small quantity of filling ingredients but you don’t want to overwhelm the batter. Scoop them onto a sheet. Using a parchment paper-lined baking sheet, roll the dough into a one-and-a-half-inch circle or use a cookie dough scoop. Make sure there is approximately an inch between each cookie. Make the classic crosshatch pattern on each cookie to flatten them out. Bake them for 10 minutes, let them cool on the sheet, and then transfer them to a baking rack to cool – if you can resist eating them hot!
