I love to bake cookies. I find it oddly therapeutic. Something about the mixing and the rolling the dough in my hands. So, while we’ve given up wheat, I’m not ready to give up cookies. Ria loves to help stir and to roll the dough balls. Her balls are a little deflated and not very circular, but she loves them just the same. And you know what? I can’t always tell the different when they come out of the oven. When I put the chocolate chunks on each cookie so would point to the one that needed it’s chocolate next. “This one! aaand this one! aaaaand this one!” I love baking with this kid.
These cookies are very simple and are grain and peanut free. They taste a lot like classic peanut butter cookies but are a bit less chewy (unless you eat them still warm from the oven, which is the best!). You could do chocolate chips easily, but I didn’t have any in the house. I’ll do some more experimenting and see if I can do a honey version, but for now I used organic cane sugar, so I feel okay about it 🙂

Also, I hadn’t intended to feed these to the baby (I try to avoid sugar before one), but Ria’s on a sharing kick these days (only with food, heaven forbid you try and get her to share a train) and I keep catching Sunny crawling around with bits of food. There are cookie crumbs all over my house, I guess I should go sweep those up!
