Now, let’s move on to a few tips & tricks for these flourless peanut butter s’mores cookies:

  1. Okay, let’s discuss the peanut butter. I mention this down in the recipe but it deserves repeating. If you are using a natural peanut butter, PLEASE be sure to use one that is not drippy and ideally is no stir. This is very important for these cookies! I prefer to use the Whole Foods brand creamy organic peanut butter (although I’ve also had luck with Justin’s classic peanut butter and Skippy’s natural peanut butter). <— None of this is sponsored. Just what I tried myself! If you are using conventional peanut butter, any kind should work.
  2. Really try to mix the marshmallows evenly into the cookie batter. This helps with the structure of the final cookies. If you have too many marshmallows in any single cookie, they won’t wind up as nicely shaped. {But um, they still taste fantastic.}
  3. For my gluten free friends! Be sure to check the ingredients on your marshmallows! While a lot of brands are gluten free, others are not.
  4. Same goes if you need to keep these dairy free. Be sure to check the ingredients on your dark chocolate chips!

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter*
  • ¼ cup pure maple syrup
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon fine sea salt
  • ½ cup dark chocolate chips
  • ¾ cup mini marshmallows

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350ºF. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the peanut butter, maple syrup, egg, vanilla, baking soda and salt until well combined (it will look really runny & separated when you start mixing – but just keep going and the peanut butter will eventually “absorb” it – trust me – just keep going!). Add in the chocolate chips and marshmallows, then mix until well combined.
  3. Scoop about 1 ½ to 2 tablespoons of dough (I use my large cookie scoop) and drop on the prepared baking sheet about 2 inches apart. Use your fingers to slightly flatten each cookie.
  4. Bake for about 10 to 11 minutes, until the cookies are just set and starting to lightly brown. Let the cookies cool completely directly on the baking sheet (I know it’s hard, but allowing these to cool completely before digging in helps them set up more!). Remove with a spatula, then enjoy!

*If you are using a natural peanut butter, please please please be sure to use one that is no stir and not drippy in texture. If you use something that is drippy, it will be too runny for this recipe. See the tips & tricks section in the post above for my recommendations for natural peanut butter brands for these cookies!

Also – because of the marshmallows – some of the cookies won’t wind up “perfectly” shaped. But it’s okay – just roll with it. They are too delicious and messy and fun to care.
