One night last week, Leif fussed in his bassinet. I scooped him up and started to feed him while trying to fully wake up from my dream. In it, I met Natalie Schepman from the band Joseph, and we became best friends while sharing cookies.

Cookies are bridge-builders, man.

As I contemplated this universal truth, I looked down at Leif nursing when suddenly his cheeks puffed out like a squirrel hoarding nuts. He pulled away and spit up dribbled all over me. I laughed (sorry, little dude!).

Leif has a little acid reflux so I’ve cut gluten, dairy, corn, and chocolate out of my diet for a month or so to see if it helps. But mama still needs a treat (and an easy-to-grab-and-eat-with-one-hand snack). Enter the Acid Reflux Survival Cookie. This recipe is pretty much just like the chocolate no-bake cookies of my youth, minus the butter and chocolate. (By the way, if you haven’t made a no-bake cookie in a while, I urge you to do so. They’re so yummy and you probably have everything you need in your pantry! This is my go-to for the standard version. I use just under 1/2 cup honey in it.)

These cookies come together quickly, taste like a peanut butter oatmeal cookie, and hold together well. They’re good enough to share with women in bands you love and would legit love to be friends with in real life.
