My Secret Recipe Club assignment this month is Mangia.  Chelsy is a young energetic Texas gal, who specializes in healthy, good for you, recipes, especially sweets!  She cooks a lot of gluten free, Paleo, vegan recipes and her blog is full of tasty temptations and witty words~ you are going to want to visit Mangia and see what she’s up to!

I can’t wait to try her P B & J Smoothie made with peanut butter powder, only 110 calories!

I also want to try Sweet and Spicy Parmesan Spoon Bread made with cornmeal and rosemary

For today’s reveal I chose her Gluten Free 3 Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies

I was so excited to try this recipe, the cookies were baked, and 1 or 2 eaten,  before I realized Chelsea’s recipe came from another Secret Recipe Club member, It’s Yummy to My Tummy.  I guess 3 ingredient recipes will always draw a lot of attention!  The cookies are so good, I had to go ahead with this post… plus these cookies make for some really

Spooky Owl Eyes!

If you spray your measuring cup it sure makes it easy to get the peanut butter out
Beat the egg right in the sprayed cup
Mix everything together
Couldn’t be easier!
Add chocolate chips, peanut butter cups, anything you like
This makes 12 large cookies, but you could make smaller cookies if preferred, just adjust cooking time
Mine might not win a beauty contest, but they sure tasted good!
