These gluten-free monster cookies are made with rolled oats, peanut butter and chocolate chips. They’re thick, chewy and so easy to make!
Isaac loves monster trail mix and since becoming pregnant, I’ve been hooked on it as well! During my first trimester, I was sneaking handfuls every time I passed through the kitchen… strategically reaching for the handful with the most M&M’s. My new love for monster trail mix inspired this monster cookie recipe, but honestly, I’m surprised I haven’t shared a cookie recipe like this before because they combine all of my favorite ingredients for sweet treats: oats, peanut butter, and chocolate.
Needless to say, these are adult-friendly and they sure as heck are kid-friendly too! Bring them into the kitchen if you’re feeling like you have the patience for that. 😉 These cookies can be whipped up in one bowl. Assign simple tasks to your kiddos – measuring out the ingredients, adding ingredients to the bowl, cracking eggs or stirring.
Ingredients in Gluten-Free Peanut Butter Monster Cookies
I upgraded a few of these ingredients to make these healthier monster cookies. Because we don’t use any flour, these are naturally gluten-free.
rolled old-fashioned oats – make sure the package says the oats are certified gluten-free. I like to use Bob’s Red Mill gluten-free rolled oats
cane sugar – you can definitely use more coconut sugar instead of the two types of sugars
chocolate chips – I love the Enjoy Life brand, they’re dairy-free, nut-free…
