A gluten-free recipe for the awesome combination of peanut butter, chocolate and marshmallows to make s’mores … in a cookie!

Peanut butter smore cookies (800x600)

Anything with peanut butter in the title always gets my attention.  This one, with marshmallows in it as well, was just calling my name to make it since we had a pack of marshmallows in the cupboard left over from ‘Fluffernutter Day’ (peanut butter and marshmallows).  And since I loved that combination so much, I decided on the spur of the moment one day to make them.  Unfortunately, the dough tasted so good, I ate way too much of that, and the finished product.  I am now trying to eat a little more healthy and a few less cookies!

The almond meal is my gluten-free substitute for crushed graham crackers so these are not ‘genuine’ s’mores, but still very yummy!
