M&M Cookies

26 Nov

What a awesome day! Adam is seriously the BEST! He let me sleep in till 9am, and I wake up to him cleaning up the kitchen! Parker and I played trains, then I convinced him to help me make cookies!

“Gluten Free”  mini M&M cookies!

2 1/4 Cups gluten free flour

1 tsp baking powder

1 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp salt

1/4 tsp xanthan gum

3/4 cup butter

3/4 cup golden brown sugar

1/2 cup granulated sugar

1 tsp vanilla

and most of a package of M&M minis (found with the chocolate chips)


Heat oven to 375*C and bake for 12-13 minutes


I left the rest of the cookie dough with Adam to bake because I had to set off to work. The rest turned out just fine!

After work, I got in my workout. It took me 1.5 hours to do a 45 min video…

Warm up, circuit 1

INTERMISSION – Parker needs a game reset

Circuits 2-5

INTERMISSION-Parker needs a bath and to be put to bed.  Sidetracked by putting away rest of laundry.

Circuits 6, 7 and cool down, finally done!

Made it downstairs to a clean basement! Adam has put away our hiking stuff that was piled underneath the home gym…


My goals this week:

Weighted squats with my workouts (minimum of 10).


No sugar! I have a wedding to attend on Saturday, and I am breaking out like mad on my face! This is not for weightloss, I really find my skin is clearer if I eat very well, drink tons of water and limit sugar. I have been eating lots of sugar lately and this week I am going to stop.

    I just love how the mini M&M’s look in this cookie! I’ll definitely be looking for them in the supermarket. Great idea!

      Awe thanks, I like the way the colors bleed into the dough!
      I am sure you will make something wayyy more delicious than me! Looking through your blog, I am an amateur compared to you!! I look forward to seeing what you create =)
