I'm laughing as I type this because the blog below is about me being a fatty Mcfat fat and here I am posting a cookie recipe and eating one while I work. Awesome. If you follow me on Instagram then you saw this picture, and let me tell you that they taste WAY better than they look!

I was at Trader Joes this morning and came across a bag of rolled oats.



 I'm always looking for new breakfast ideas & loved this because they are gluten free, a great source of fiber and sodium free! As I was checking out the gal said, "Ohhh, are you making the cookies?" COOKIES?? I said. She raved about the recipe on the back & you know me & COOKIES!
 I drove home and made a batch before I even made lunch. 
Shame on that lady for telling me about the recipe. I'm addicted.

 


Gluten Free Oatmeal Cookie Recipe

1/4 c. butter
1 and 1/4 tsp baking soda
3/4 c. sugar
3 cups of rolled oats
3/4 c. brown sugar
6 oz chocolate chips
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1 c. peanut butter

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, combine sugar, brown sugar and butter and beat until creamy. Add eggs, vanilla and baking soda and mix well. Add peanut butter and mix. Stir in oats and chocolate chips. Place teaspoon full of dough on parchment paper. Bake 8-10 minutes. Just until they are lightly brown around the edges.

Side note: I threw all the ingredients in at once in my Kitchen Aid and they were just as awesome.

Yay for not feeling as guilty in indulging in chocolate chip cookies!

Goodie Girl Cookie Pop Tarts

Summer is in full swing and Kate and I have a super fun, easy and delicious breakfast or even dessert idea for you to make!  First things first, go find some Goodie Girl Birthday Cake and Magical Animal cookies. They’re gluten free and to die for.  You can make this recipe gluten free by replacing the All Purpose Flour with Gluten Free Flour. Or if you want to skip the homemade dough all together you can use pie crust in the refrigerated section at the grocery store! 
Here’s what I did..

The best iced coffee, ever.

When Chris and I went to Mexico this past winter we quickly become addicted to their  blended espressos. I found myself craving them when we got home so I played around with a couple of instant espressos and ended up making the best iced coffee, ever. 


What you’ll need.  Medaglia D’oro instant espresso Water IceCoffee creamer of your choiceHeavy cream + caramel Trust me on the instant espresso. I tried them all. This is the best. I get it at Kroger. I’ve also heard Walmart carries it as well as trusty amazon. 
Step one.  Get your ingredients out. 

I fill my glass up halfway with water and pour a capful of instant espresso in. 

Mix it real good. 

Time to cool it down. 

Now comes the sweet part. 



This next step is money.  Lordy. 

If you’re feeling really naughty you can add caramel sauce.  Do it. 

If you’ve been wanting the recipe for the BEST homemade caramel ever then you’re in luck.  This is the recipe from my mother in law.  It is life changing. 


Ta-Da!

You know our deep love for ribs.  Chris does them like no other.  So I thought I’d finally share our recipe.

Ribs are prepped for the oven. 


After 4+ hours in the oven the ribs go on the grill. Toss on a little extra seasoning and sauce for this part.
