3 1/4 cups Hungry Harry's All Purpose Flour Blend

How To

Preheat oven to 350° F.
Using a hand mixer, stand mixer, or mixing bowl with wooden spoon, mix the coconut oil with the brown sugar until soft and fluffy, about one minute. Add the egg, molasses, vanilla, and orange zest, and mix until combined. Add the baking soda, salt, spices, and Hungry Harry's All Purpose Flour Blend.
Mix until combined, and fold in chocolate chips and marshmallows. Mix until just combined, and scoop into small balls.
Flatten lightly with your palm and place on a parchment lined sheet tray and bake for 8 - 10 minutes, depending on size, turning halfway through the baking process.
