Monster Cookies

The perfect Halloween Treat. They are flourless and can be made GF by using GF oats. It’s a dump and stir baking recipe and they bake in less 10 minutes. So easy kids can do most of the steps.

Yes, I broke into my Trick or Treat bag for the M&M’s.

Makes 12 large cookies.

2 eggs

1 cup creamy peanut butter

1/2 cup of brown sugar

1/4 cup of white sugar

2 tablespoons of melted butter

1 teaspoon of vanilla

1/2 teaspoon of baking soda

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 1/2 cups of non instant oats

1/4-1/2 cup of M&Ms

1/4-1/2 cup of chocolate chips

I side more with 1/4 cups of the chocolate but you can do more.

Preheat oven to 350

Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.

Break eggs in a medium bowl and whisk. Add peanut butter, sugars, butter,vanilla, salt and baking soda and stir with a spatula. Stir in oats then fold in chocolates.

Use an ice cream scooper and make balls on a baking sheet and space 2 inches apart. Press down on each ball slightly. Bake 8-10 minutes. Do not over bake. 8 minutes is gooey and 10 is not. I do a baking sheet of each as the house is split with their preference.

Let sit on baking sheet for three minutes then move to a cooling rack.

Gooey batch.
Not as gooey batch.
My handsome helper. Super easy for kids to make.
