These cookies were ridiculous. Ridiculously easy (yay!) to make. And super easy to eat. Um,….of course. 🙂

5 ingredients needed (6 if you want the chocolate chips!) Peanut butter, granulated sugar, 1 egg, baking soda, and oat flour. To keep them gluten free (if you need to be), just be sure to use gluten free oat flour. Bob’s Red Mill has a nice gluten free oat flour you can use.

Mix, scoop and bake. Even if you are not much of a baker, these cookies are a breeze to make…really, a toddler could make ’em.

When your job entails baking and tasting cookies during the work day…it’s a good life. I LOVE my job! 🙂

Portion control is important FODMAPers–enjoy 1 or 2 cookies and then walk away! peanut butter cookies

Every August, the Scarlata family ventures to Nantucket, a quaint island off the coast of Massachusetts. It’s hard to put the beauty of the island in photographs or even words.  It is a very special place.  I encourage you to travel there (if you ever can) and take in its beauty.  We have created numerous memories as a family on Nantucket.  This year we rented a jeep and did some four wheel driving to Great Point Lighthouse for the first time. 4 wheelin
I absolutely love seeing the gorgeous hydrangeas all over the island.  I thought I would share a few pics with you.hydrangeas nantucketIn all colors!purple hydrangeaPink too!
