Healthy Monster Cookies

Updated: Jan 26

@cokocooks

Monster cookies are probably my favorite cookie EVER! These flourless cookies are filled with chocolate, peanut butter, and oats. They have an amazing chewy texture from the oats and the peanut butter. This recipe is so simple which makes these cookies even better. All you need is a bowl, the cookie ingredients, a spatula, and maybe your hands. Have I mentioned these cookies are healthy!?!? Yep, a cookie that is so good and it is healthy.

This cookie starts with a mix of peanut butter and powder peanut butter. The powder peanut butter is amazing for baking and just lightens these cookies up some without you ever being able to taste a difference. I buy a powdered peanut butter that only has roasted peanuts and no added sugar in the ingredients so I can control how much sugar I want in the cookies(I linked below). I used a monk fruit sweetener to keep the sugar content low, but they are cookies so use whatever you want/have! To make this recipe vegan friendly for my dad, I used vegan chocolate and m&ms (linked below). Any chocolate or m&ms will be perfect for this recipe. The last very important component is the oats and lots of them. If you want to make this recipe gluten free you can use gluten free oats. All of these ingredients combined make one indulgent and delicious cookie!

If I haven't persuaded you to make these cookies yet, then you also need to know you can also just eat the cookie batter. Since these cookies are egg free you can eat as much of the batter as you want, and trust me when I say the batter is just as good. I have always thought cookie dough is the best part of any cookie anyway. So this cookie recipe is healthy, easy, and you can just eat the cookie dough! I hope I have now convinced you to give these monster cookies a chance! My family and I absolutely love them and they will definitely be a regular cookie made in my household. I even made a big batch of them for my parents to bring on their road trip to Colorado. So if you are in a baking mood try these out and let me know what you think!!
