Best. Cookies. Ever.

My friend, Nae, brought these cookies to our cottage this summer.  I’ve made them multiple times since.  They are gluten free– huge bonus!  And while the preparation is not traditional, it works!  I feel like if I squint they might be considered half way healthy.  Maybe in a world where donuts are eaten for breakfast, these would be a good substitute!

Nae’s Freshly Baked Monster Cookies

Monster Cookies

3 eggs

1 1/4 c light brown sugar

1 c sugar

1/4 t salt

1/4 t vanilla

1 1/2 c peanut butter

1/2 c  softened butter

2 t baking soda

4 1/2 c quick cooking oats

3 or so cups of assorted goodies–M & Ms, Peanut Butter M & Ms, Mini Snickers–cut into quarters, chips of all varieties (I always use semi sweet and high quality white chocolate chips).

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Combine eggs and sugars.  Mix well.  Add salt, vanilla, peanut butter, and butter.  Mix well.  Add baking soda and oats.  Mix well.  Stir in the goodies!  Drop by tablespoonful onto baking sheet lined with parchment paper.  Bake for 8-10 minutes.  Do not over bake.  Cool on the pan slightly before removing the cookies to a wire rack.

Extra dough can be made into balls and frozen.  Makes around 3-3 1/2 dozen cookies.

    • Glad you could take a quick trip down memory lane! I love that they are gluten free but taste great. So much gluten free baking is just not worth the effort or calories.

        I’m just now learning about gluten free diet myself.

      • I find it beneficial and really not that hard to follow. No harm in feeling the best one can feel!
