The Perfect Monster Cookie Recipe
You all know I don’t like to cook. If I were rich, I would totally have a personal chef who would cook me nutritious, perfectly balanced meals every day. Huge chicken Ceasar salads, juicy hamburgers made with lean beef and tons of roasted veggies. Oh, and every so often, bake me monster cookies.
But, alas, this blog has yet to make me rich and my kids still want to eat every day, still outgrow their shoes, and expect us to pay for dental visits. So instead I have been forced to experiment time and time again until I perfect my favorite recipes. And today, I am sharing with you The Perfect Monster Cookie Recipe.
First off, a few words about monster cookies. They should be BIG and chewy, so you want to make sure you don’t overcook them. I have found (through rigorous testing) the exact balance between M&Ms, chocolate, and Reese’s Pieces. Don’t mess with this!
Also, are fans of Adams Natural Peanut Butter, but do not use the natural peanut butter with these cookies. To get the right texture, use regular peanut butter. For these, I used peanut butter purchased from Brandless (more on that later since I am working on a review).
Monster cookies don’t contain any wheat flour. I have found that to get The Perfect Chunky Chewy Texture you need to make some oat flour. All you need to do it take a cup and a half of old-fashioned oats and whir them in the blender for a few seconds. This will give you a beautiful oat flour to use in your monster cookies.
And now, with no further ado, The Perfect Monster Cookie Recipe.
