After a bunch of baking flops, I was so pleased with myself when I took a bite of these. Then I sat down to take pictures, googled “monster cookies” to see what other peoples’ cookies looked like, and then I saw it. Monster cookies involve peanut butter. Whoops. So here we are with peanut butter-less monster cookies!
I took pictures anyway. They are tasty. Just missing a really important ingredient.
These are fat and chewy. The way a cookie should be, right? I adapted these from my oatmeal raisin cookies. I reduced the sugar because of all the added sweetness from the M&Ms; and chocolate chips, but feel free to reduce it even more. These were basically as sweet as a normal cookie.
But most importantly, they don’t taste healthified. Yay!
I think I’m done with oat-containing cookies for a while. I’m bored with them and besides, oats like to just fall all over the floor anyway.
Hey, do any of you guys have any peanut butter cookie recipes that use natural peanut butter and they actually taste as good as cookies with normal peanut butter? Natural peanut butter is nice for raw stuff but whenever it gets baked, I don’t know… it’s just not as good as the “real” stuff!
Have a lovely week, everyone! I hope you all had a nice Valentine’s day. :)
And by the way, if you don’t like the coloring in M&Ms;, Unreal’s UN41 are without artificial ingredients. I’ve never tried them but apparently you can find them at CVS, Target, and Michael’s. And if you live in Germany, Aldi has naturally colored M&M-ish; candy, but the colors aren’t so pretty and sometimes bleed.
