Tips for the Perfect Chewy Monster Cookies

  • Do not overbake the cookies. When they are very light golden brown, remove them from the oven and let them cool on the baking sheet.
  • Use Old-Fashioned Oats rather than quick oats. I love Bob’s Red Mill Certified Gluten-Free Oats.
  • When measuring flour, scoop flour and level with a knife.
  • When melting the butter, melt it over low heat and bring it to room temperature before mixing it with the eggs and vanilla.

Frequently Asked Questions

Are all Oats naturally gluten-free?

 
It’s important to note that not all oats are gluten-free. Always look for the Gluten Free label on the Oats. Cross-contact can occur if oats are manufactured in a facility where wheat is used. We always use Bob’s Mill Certified Gluten-Free Oats.

Can I add Chocolate Chips to this cookie recipe?

The total M&M ratio in this recipe is 2 cups of candy. You can replace some of the M&Ms with chocolate chips if desired. For example, you can use one cup of M&M’s and chocolate chips.
