These CHEWY MONSTER COOKIES are everything you would want in a cookie – chocolate, oatmeal, peanut butter, and they’re made without flour!
I haven’t ever gotten the hype around monster cookies until I made these Chewy Monster Cookies. I get it now, people. I totally get it. The texture, alone, in these cookies has me wrapped around their finger. The oatmeal makes them super chewy and I love the pop of the crisp shell on the chocolate candies. Then you get a smooth chocolate feel from the chocolate chips and these things end up being a little taste of heaven.
My mother in law was just diagnosed with Hashimoto’s disease last year. People with this disease aren’t suppose to have gluten. She has taken it in stride and has done really well with it all! My husband has a really big family, so when we all get together, food is usually a huge focus. My mother in law has to take the backseat on a lot of foods, but I was excited when I realized that these Chewy Monster Cookies don’t have any flour in them and are totally free game for her to eat! We took them to our family reunion at Bear Lake, UT this last weekend and she loved them, right along with everyone else. I felt super proud of being able to let her enjoy something like cookies that she has missed so much!
