marshmallow chocolate chip cookies.

marshmallowchip

We needed something sweet and these hit the spot one evening. This recipe doesnt make a ton, so you arent stuck eating them for days – Perfect for a last minute – i need some cookies – kind of night!

Found the recipe here.

  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup coconut palm sugar
  • 1/3 cup chocolate chips
  • 2-5 tbsp almond milk
  • 2 tbsp veg oil
  • 1/4 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 2 mini marshmallows per cookie

Instructions

Combine all dry ingredients (except marshmallows) in a medium mixing bowl, then stir in wet to form a dough – it will be dry at first, so keep stirring until a cookie-dough texture is achieved. (Only if needed, add 1 tbsp extra almond milk)  Roll into balls, then smush two mini marshmallows into each cookie and re-roll into a ball. Preheat oven to 325 F. Place cookie balls on a greased baking tray and bake 11 minutes on the center rack. They’ll look underdone when you take them out. Let them cool 10 minutes, during which time they will firm up. You can also choose to make extra cookie dough balls and freeze them to bake at a later date.

Fourth of july was just here and I used that as an excuse to get some cooking/baking in. I was drooling over this recipe for these whoopie pie smores – and since I had a bag of vegan marshmallows from trader joes, I used this as the perfect opportunity to make them! The original recipe is gluten free, but I didnt have gluten free flour blend, so i just subbed some regular flour and these turned out pretty great!!
