Do you ever get a recipe stuck in your head? For me, it’s kind of like getting a song stuck in my head. When that happens, I listen to it/sing it 9,000 times and then I get it out of my system. My latest cookie craving was kind of like that. I wanted monster cookie bars. Have I ever had monster cookie bars? Nope. Sure haven’t. But, I have had monster cookies and peanut butter blondies, and this seemed like the perfect marriage of the two.
Here were my criteria:
- Soft and tender on the inside, with some crispy, golden edges.
- Plenty of oats, chocolate chips, and candies (classic for Monster Cookies!)
- Easy recipe with simple ingredients
- Gluten free & dairy free
We tried lots of combinations, but ultimately my favorite ended up being these flourless monster cookie bars. After SIX batches, we nailed the recipe, and my craving is totally satisfied. And, as a further benefit, now I’ve got the recipe the next time the craving strikes!
Let’s make them! (You won’t believe how simple and straightforward this ingredient list is!)
