Mmmmm… Monster Cookies

Naturally gluten-free, Monster Cookies are not only a great treat but an easy way to add healthy fiber and nuts into your diet.  Here’s my “seedy” version.  See below for additional add in ideas.

Seed-Filled Monster Cookies

  • 3 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 2/3 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup almond butter
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 4 1/2 cups oatmeal
  • 1/2 cup raw sunflower seeds
  • 1/2 cup raw pumpkin seeds
  • 1/2 cup flax meal
  • 1/2 cup coconut
  • 1/2 cup mini-dark chocolate chips

In a large mixing bowl, mix all ingredients until fully combined.  Drop by rounded tablespoons on to baking sheet.  Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven 7-9 minutes. Taking cookies out a bit earlier will make them chewy, baking until browned will produce a crunchy cookie.

These cookies can lean on the healthy add-ins like chopped nuts, protein powder, chia seeds, raisins, chopped dates or other fruits or other things can be added for a special dessert – M&M’s, white chocolate or butterscotch chips, toffee bits, marshmallows.
