At Little Sprouts, we have lots of cookie monsters who love to eat cookies (not to mention their cookie loving parents) so I have a few cookies that are famous around these parts.  This monster cookie recipe has been a favorite here for years. 

I adapted the recipe from one I got from my sweet Aunt Pat years ago.  She gave me some of the cookies for Christmas with the recipe attached.

These cookies freeze great because they don’t contain flour or baking powder.  They also store well at room temperature for several days.

Some tips to remember when making them:

Stir them super thoroughly, hopefully you have a hulk like mine to help you with that part. 



 

You need a giant bowl because it makes a lot! 

If you don’t have a bunch of cookie monsters in your house, you can half the recipe. 

I hope you and the ones you love enjoy them as much as we do.

  1. These look sooo good! I love the addition of peanut butter and rolled oats! A perfect recipe for me to make with all those left over bags of m&m’s from our Gingerbread House party!

  2. Sounds good, Christina! I printed the recipe and will definitely try them – but I think I’ll have to reduce it to one third with only two aging monsters in the house to consume them!!

    I love monster cookies! They remind me of something my mom made when I was little and that my brothers still request — Ranger cookies. Mom’s cookies are always hockey pucks, hard and crunchy because my dad likes them that way, and not really to my taste. But, memories 🙂 These look delicious and I think I’ll try making a batch soon. Thanks for sharing!
