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
