If you are not a baker, this one is for you. No flour required. Which in turn means no mess in the kitchen, only one dirty bowl that can be tossed in the dishwasher afterwards.
Really, how can you not make these?
But, first how was everyones weekend? The husband and I had a semi-date on Friday - much needed! We both couldn't remember the last time we went out to eat, which is just so sad. After a nice plate of Mexican, tons of chips and salsa, buying a new recliner for our living room and getting groceries, we were once again home.
Now, it's Monday and I'm sad to say I only have two weeks of maternity leave left. I don't even like thinking about it. I was able to stay home for a year with the little man and now I have to give up my little miss at just 9 weeks.
Like any mother, I have tremendous motherly guilt taking her to daycare at 9 weeks. Even though our in home daycare provider is more than wonderful...it just plain sucks. No better way to put it.
Hopefully these cookies can put me in a better mood?
Peanut Butter Chocolate Mint Cookies
1 c. peanut butter
1 t. baking soda
1/2 c. sugar
1 1/2 cups equal parts chocolate and mint chips
Combine all ingredients in a bowl, shape into balls and bake at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes, just until golden brown. They will look a little doughy, but will harden up once cooled.
Perfect treat for someone needing a gluten free dessert option, or just for anyone who hates making a mess with flour!
