If you’re looking for Gluten-Free Monster Cookies, a super easy, fun and yummy Halloween Treat, read on!
Who else loves a Monster Cookie?
What’s not to love about a peanut butter oatmeal cookie with lots of chocolate chips and M&Ms? (Feel free to substitute your favorite nut or seed butter by the way!)
We started with our favorite Peanut Butter Cookies, which are a long time family recipe… made some tweaks and added some gluten-free oats, chocolate chips & M&Ms.
And they are a total hit!
Best part? The are super easy to make and are made with pantry staples, except for the M&Ms which I happened to have picked up while stocking up on essentials at the store the other week.
All you need is ….
butter or dairy free butter
eggs (I haven’t made them with flax eggs but provide my recommendation)
gluten-free flour (we used GF Jules, affiliate link)
gluten-free baking powder
a pinch of salt
gluten-free oats (we used GF Harvest, amazon affiliate link)
M&Ms (or a similar brand chocolate candies)
As an aside, you may have noticed that we are affiliate for GFJules. To learn more about why we love GFJules flour and why we have used it for 10 years, click here.
Bonus: at the bottom of that post is a one-time use affiliate Discount Code.
And importantly, purchasing through an affiliate link does not change your cost at all. It generates a small percentage of the sale for me, and purchasing through an affiliate link helps me fund this website and all the recipes I share, so thank you!
A note about Oats: Oats are naturally gluten-free BUT they are prone to cross contamination in the growing process which is of concern for people who are gluten-free for medical reasons such as celiac disease.
The safest gluten-free oats are grown via a process known as purity protocol to eliminate cross contamination.
As the demand for gluten-free products has grown, many manufacturers use gluten-free oats that are sorted and there are questions surrounding this practice.
Gluten-Free Watchdog has done lots of research and writing about this topic to which I’ve linked to if you want to read more.
