With just 6 days until Valentine’s Day, now is the perfect time to start thinking about ways to treat your sweetie, or your bestie, or maybe your favorite co-worker. Today’s recipe is a little self-serving because I was thinking ways to treat my valentine too!
One of John’s favorite flavor combinations is a s’more. We recently ordered the Girl Scout cookie version of a s’more and we were not wishing for some more…it wasn’t our favorite cookie combination by any means. So this year for Valentine’s Day, I’ll be treating John with a big batch of these Grain Free S’mores Cookies by ME rather than the Girl Scouts.
Since John is still currently away for work, the recipe will be new to him (even if he gets a preview of these bad boys online) but they’ve been co-worker and student approved! They’re so easy and quick to whip up, you’ll want to add all of the ingredients to your grocery order…like now!
- 2 cups almond flour
- 1/2 cup cassava flour
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 2 eggs
- 2 tbsp maple syrup
- 2 tbsp melted clarified butter or ghee (coconut oil will also work but I prefer the clarified butter flavor!)
- 2 tbsp creamy almond butter
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup marshmallows
- 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips (if you’re dairy free I like Enjoy Life!)
- In a medium mixing bowl, add both types of flour, baking soda, and salt. Stir until combined.
- Add in eggs, maple syrup, melted clarified butter, almond butter, and vanilla extract. Stir until combined well and lumps are gone.
- Stir in marshmallows and chocolate chips. Note: Highly recommend using miniature marshallows (usually found by cake and cookie decorating stuff) or cutting your marshmallows into fourths. I simply used my kitchen shears and cut them into fourths before I began mixing because the mini ones were $4 and store brand was $.88 and mama didn’t raise no fool. — The reason for this: if you have larger marshmallow pieces they explode and don’t give you as much of a s’more property but more of the empty tomb Easter roll effect.
- Roll dough into balls and flatten slightly before dropping onto a baking sheet prepared with parchment paper.
- Bake for 13-15 minutes at 350 degrees.
These bite-sized beauties would pair perfectly with coffee, if you’re like me or a glass of milk, if you’re more like John! Low in added sugar, grain-free, and super delicious! Give these a try this weekend and let me know how you like them.
