Gluten-free Chocolate Chip PB Oatmeal Skillet Cookie

Gluten-free Chocolate Chip PB Oatmeal Skillet Cookie

I always end up with too many extra cans of sweetened condensed milk in my pantry that are close to, or just past, their expiration date.  I don’t even know how I end up with multiple extras cans…I don’t bake with it often, so I […]

Gluten-free Peanut Butter Cup Cookie Dough Dip

Gluten-free Peanut Butter Cup Cookie Dough Dip

Gluten Free Reese’s Egg Brownies

Gluten Free Reese’s Egg Brownies

No, I didn’t go on a Reese’s Peanut Butter Eggs binge, but I’m not judging you if you did. If you somehow managed to get through Easter with leftover Reese’s Eggs – or you’re smart enough to run to the store and snatch some up […]

Gluten Free Peanut Butter No-Bake Nests

Gluten Free Peanut Butter No-Bake Nests

This is my final repost of the gluten-free Easter treats I made last year.  I thought these were just adorable, and assuming you like peanut butter no-bakes, they are delicious.  Since I was making other treats, I halved the below recipe and it made 24 […]
