My son loves sweets; he gets it honest enough. We always seem to have marshmallows on hand – s’mores in the summer and hot cocoa in the winter. My sons love marshmallows. My children also know what I love to bake and cookies are easy enough to throw together and slap into the oven, and they cook so quickly … it’s immediate gratification! My 4YO has been asking for weeks now for marshmallow cookies. I thought he’d drop it but he hasn’t. So today I decided to make some. I thought long and hard about what type of cookie to make and in the end (this time) I decided to settle on making a honey cookie with marshmallows and chocolate mixed in.
This ended up making 3 dozen for me and I did roll each cookie into a ball for placement and cooking. This recipe makes a sticky dough and a fluffy cookie. ENJOY!
Marshmallow Cookie Recipe
¼ cup unsalted butter, softened
1 cup honey
½ cup Agave
½ cup CalNaturale svelte spiced chai
2 ½ cups flour
1 ½ teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup quick oats
½ cup wheat germ
½ cup ground flaxseed
2 cups mini-marshmallows, frozen
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1. Preheat oven to 350oF. Grease cookie sheet.
2. Mix all ingredients except marshmallows and chocolate. When well combined add marshmallows and chocolate chips; dough is very sticky, use the “stir” speed on your Kitchen Aid stand mixer to help mix-in the final two ingredients.
3. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes. DO NOT OVER BAKE. Remove promptly from cookie sheet and allow to cool on wax paper for 20 minutes before moving to serving dish.
