Gluten Free Monster Cookie Recipe with M&M’s
I have recently changed up my eating and lifestyle choices, including a Mediterranean diet, bulking up on my protein and removing as much gluten as I can, insert sad face emoji here. (I adore bread). If there was just a bread diet I would have tried it by now.
Talking about Cookies and a diet doesn’t seem to go hand in hand. I am choosing not to call my new way of eating a diet, but more a lifestyle choice. It is not something I am doing for a few weeks, I hope to do this for the rest of my life.
I guess I went off on a rabbit trail. This is a Cookie Recipe and a darn good one. I have never had Monster cookies before this. They are really filling so you only need 1 or 2 to be satisfied.
Baking this Gluten Free Monster Cookie Recipe with M&Ms was just the right choice this week. Using gluten free oats and almond butter makes this cookie a favorite among friends and family.
