Recipe: Easy Gluten Free Snickers Cookies (Crisp and Chewy!)

Easy Gluten Free Peanut Butter Snickers Cookie Recipe

Crisp and chewy Gluten Free Peanut Butter Snickers Cookie Recipe, aka Naptime Cookies. Baked in just 10 mins with less than 10 minutes prep, these quick and easy cookies are perfect for busy families and absolutely delicious. Made using pantry staples and ingredients you probably already have at home!

Oh hello there! Yes, I am actually alive…. the bags under my eyes would probably rack up a hefty excess baggage charge on a long haul flight and my to-do list is a million miles long - but I am indeed alive…. and I’ve come back with a recipe! 

Remember those? 

Since Jensen was born, I’ve been quiet on the recipe front. I’ve still been cooking, but it’s mainly been breakfasts, lunches and dinners. The only baking I’ve really done has been a birthday cake, some cupcakes and batch after batch of boobie bikkies.

Instead my days have been filled with juggling working full time, looking after a very active 6 month old and trying to stop my house from looking like a total dump. That doesn’t leave much time for baking.

But these cookies are worth the effort - and they’re so quick they can be made during nap time…. even if your little one is a cat napper like Jensen can sometime be.

They need 10 minutes of prep and 10 minutes in the oven and you’ve got a batch of delicious cookies ready to devour.

What’s not to love?! 

So let me share the recipe with you >>

Newborn Essentials We Used Daily

Newborn Essentials We Used Daily - Best Products for a New Baby

As a new Mum, it's easy to become overwhelmed with all the products you MUST buy... but what do you really use when you have a newborn?

With Jensen now four and a half months old, we know exactly what we did and didn't use in those early days - as well as what we're continuing to use now - so with so many of you expecting your own little ones, I wanted to share our newborn essentials to help you get a better idea of what you'll use, what you won't use and what we recommend.

Here's what we've been using daily! >>

Jensen's Birth Story - An Elective C-Section Birth Story

My Elective C-Section Birth Story - Australian Private Hospital

I wasn't going to share Jensen's birth story.

To be honest, I've always found them a strange thing to share. Something so intimately personal and special, shared with the world to read - but whilst pregnant, I realised that my birth story might be a powerful tool for someone in similar shoes.

And it may have taken me 10 weeks to finally finish writing and posting it - but I still wanted to share.

You see, for many women, a c-section is a last resort.

It's what comes as an emergency procedure after a long labour that doesn't progress. 
It's the last mentioned on the birth plan "just in case". 
It's "major abdominal surgery" and to be avoided at all costs.

But for me, it was the only way.... and now I can tell you that for me, it was also the best way.

So let me share my story >>
