Chocolate Chip S'more Cookies- gluten free & vegan (top 8 allergen free)

I know it's the dead of's freezing, dark and either raining or snowing for most of the country.  But it's also the time of year we (my family) starts pre-planning for our camping season ahead.  Believe it or not, we need to reserve camp sites this early in the year to be guaranteed a spot come summer!  

Camping is one of our joys in life for our family.  For some amazing reason, my youngest daughter who's Autism wrestles her body every day, comes alive!  I believe it's the combination of being in so much fresh air, being in tight quarters as a family, having no demanded expectations (school, speech, chores etc.), simple foods and lots of outdoor activities.  It's like the bricks are lifted from her shoulders when we camp.  

Making the reservations for sites this early made me think of s'mores over the campfire and what different ways to incorporate those flavors.  Both my daughters are so-so on graham crackers, so I left that "flavor" out.  Instead I used chocolate chip cookies!  

These are great anytime of the year of course, but would be great to have for your camping or backyard camp fires.  Both of my girls would rather put sticks in the fire and burn them, then cook a marshmallow over it.  So this way they can enjoy their cookie s'more and burn up their sticks all at the same time!
