Last weekend I was in the mood to make Monster Cookies and wanted to check if I had all the ingredients. I tried searching my blog for the recipe, because I know it was here at one point. I was shocked – Monster Cookies were not on the blog!!! How could that be? One of the top 3 cookies on the planet, Monster Cookies need to be represented here!
Naturally Gluten Free
Last December one of my daughters was diagnosed with a severe Gluten Allergy (not celiacs, but still severe sensitivity). Now our dinners and deserts are gluten free. We’ve noticed that foods that are already gluten free (i.e. TACOS!) taste better than when we try to do substitutions in recipes with wheat/gluten. It is so exciting to find regular recipes that are in their natural state without any gluten! When we realized Monster Cookies were naturally gluten free, we celebrated! You still need to check each of your ingredients/brands to be sure they are not contaminated with gluten, especially oats.
We love love love Monster Cookies at our house. I think my family ate half of these cookies straight from the pan while they were warm. Brian, my kindergartner, told me the cookies made him “hungry for milk,” which was easy to remedy. In fact, I suggest a nice glass of milk with your Monster Cookies.
Here is the recipe – I’m really sorry if the instructions are cut off on this screen. I’m working on solving that issue. The full instructions are visible on the print screen, so I suggest printing and using that.

- Bake for 12-15 minutes, entire cookie should be golden brown. Allow cookies to cool on pan until stable enough to finish cooling on rack.
- Enjoy with a nice cold glass of milk!
I hope your family enjoys this recipe as much as mine does. Don’t forget to pin it so you can always find it!
From my home to yours,
Those look delicious! We will be making them soon!
Thank you! We are totally making a batch to celebrate the end of school for the year!
From the pictures, it looks like you used peanut M& M’S, as opposed to plain?
They are regular or plain M&Ms, but they kind of puff out a bit when they roast/bake. Mmmmm… soo good.
