Lucky Charms Cookies

Lucky.. A word that has been running through my head a lot lately. Ry & I are so incredibly lucky to have the people we have in our life. Its been a crazy but exciting for weeks for us. The biggest news would be that Riley and I moved to our own place.  I posted back at the beginning of March on Facebook that I was wishing there was more places to rent in my town. (I didn’t want to take Riley from his school or friends if I could avoid it.) My neighbor replied to my post that they would be having a house for rent shortly in our town. Not only were they kind enough to let us rent it but we can have Odie still too. Matt & Chrissy hauled ass to get this house together in a little less than a month. So many improvements that make the place amazing but the kitchen has me excited. Its so open with a ton of storage and all new appliances that have not been touched with anything gluten. Even a brand new microwave thanks to another couple dear to my heart.  Our new house is this adorable 2 story place with great natural light.

Part of the kitchen and what will be our dining room/WCWBF work space :) The dining room has great natural light due to sliding doors.

Moving can be expensive as hell. Little things I didn’t think about quickly add up. Luckily after 7 long years my love has come back to me. Lucky Charms are gluten free! (yes I know the risk and yes I took them.) I have been living off them as I get settled. IMG_8624

As I was thinking of what the first recipe in the new kitchen should be, I was remembered this Lucky Charms cookie recipe a friend had posted on her Facebook Bakin’ Me Crazy page. I knew they were perfect for how the move and people in my life have been making me feel lately. With just a couple tweaks to the recipe (one to help with gluten free spreading and one because we don’t like white chocolate), and they are great cookies.

After separating 3 cups of cereal pieces from the marshmallows, you take the cereal and grind it to a flour like consistence. Which you then add to a bowl of dry ingredients for use later. In the bowl of your stand mixer, beat the butter till it is smooth. Next add in the sugars, mixing till they are creamy. Followed by the eggs and then dry ingredients.

Lastly, by hand add 3 cups of the Lucky Charms “flour” and marshmallows. Scoop out small little dough balls. Make sure to leave space between the cookies as they do spread out.

These cookies are chewy and delicious. If you are one of the many that eat the gluten free Lucky Charms I highly recommend these.

Lucky Charms Cookies [Gluten Free]

Ingredients

3 cups Lucky Charms cereal, no marshmallows

1 cup butter (2 sticks), room temperature

1 cup granulated sugar

¾ cup brown sugar

2 large eggs

2 cups gluten flour

1 tsp baking soda

1 tsp salt

1½ cup marshmallows from cereal

½ cup Lucky Charms cereal (no marshmallows, roughly chopped if desired)

Instructions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and line baking sheets with parchment paper.
In a food processor, process 3 cups cereal without marshmallows until a fine powder. Set aside.
In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat butter until smooth. Add sugars, and beat on medium-high speed until smooth and fluffy, about 2-3 minutes. Add eggs and beat until combined.
Add processed cereal, flour, baking soda, and salt and mix on low-medium speed until combined. Stir in marshmallows and additional ½ cup cereal.
Roll into balls using about 1tbsp of dough each. Place on a baking sheet 2” apart (I baked mine with 9 per sheet). Bake at 350 degrees F for 8-9 minutes, until mostly dry on top and slightly puffed – they will sink down and become chewy as they cool.
