Crisp and chewy at the same time, these cookies are loaded with many great cookie flavors. Oats, peanut butter, chocolate chips and even a drop of maple syrup all combine to make my grandmother’s Monster Cookies. Does anyone not have a monster cookie recipe from their grandmother? My best friend and I compared our grandmother’s recipes a few years ago and laughed when they were almost identical. I thought these cookies were exclusive to my own family and in the past few years, I’ve seen these all over the internet. If you haven’t tasted them before, you are missing out on one of the best cookies ever.
I only make these cookies a couple times a year, because I absolutely can not eat just one (or two or three). However, one of my brothers has a special birthday today, as does his beautiful wife, and in honor of them both, I made and shipped these Monster Cookies to them last week.
Gluten Free without even knowing it, these cookies were free of wheat before that was the cool thing to be. The oats and the peanut butter hold them together perfectly. (If you are baking them with allergies in mind, be sure to purchase certified gluten free oats.)
