Perfect for #Halloween: Monster Cookies

I think by now you all know how much I love Halloween. Last weekend I was in the baking mood. We made rice krispies treats, muffins for breakfast and I managed to sneak in some Monster Cookies for my little ones.

What's amazing about this recipe for these cookies is that you need NO FLOUR in order for these to work. That's right, no flour. I was shocked and surprised too when I first read the recipe, but once they were all baked and done they turned out absolutely delicious, chewy and made my house smell wonderful.

They're are super easy to make and also kid friendly so the kids can help you bake these or you could be like me and surprise your little ones with these. I'll be making these again this weekend for our annual Halloween party. Have a spookylicious weekend!

1¼ cups chunky peanut butter ( regular or creamy would do too!)

  • 1 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1 cup granulated white sugar
  • 8 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 4 cups quick cooking, 1-minute oats
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup M&M’s
  • 1 cup butterscotch chips

  • Directions:
  • Preheat oven to 350.
  • Cream together peanut butter, brown sugar, white sugar, and butter with a mixer.
  • Mix in eggs, vanilla extract, and oats.
  • Stir in chocolate chips, m&m’s and butterscotch chips.
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Shape 2 tablespoons of dough into a ball. (Wet your hands with cold water to help as the dough tends to stick to hands)
  • Place onto a cookie sheet and gently press down to flatten slightly.
  • Bake for 12 minutes.
  • Remove from oven and let cookies rest in the pan until slightly cooled and settled. For me that was about four minutes. Cookies will continue to bake while cooling in the pan so be careful not to over bake them in the oven.
  • Place cookies on a cooling rack to finish cooling.
  • Serve and enjoy!
