Healthy monster cookies

Yes, you read that right! These vegan monster oatmeal cookies are actually healthy, but equally enjoyable. Typically, monster cookies are made with a lot of butter, sugar and eggs, but my version doesn’t contain any of those ingredients, but is still equally delicious.

Vegan monster oatmeal cookies are packed with creamy granola butter, old fashioned oatmeal, vegan chocolate chips, and vegan M&M’s from Unreal. These cookies are sweetened with maple syrup for a healthier twist on the classic.

WHAT ARE MONSTER COOKIES?

If you haven’t heard of monster cookies before, they are cookies that are typically made with peanut butter, oatmeal, chocolate chips and chocolate hard shell candies, (like M&M’s). They are essentially a combination of a bunch of pantry staples!

They get their name ‘monster’ from containing a bunch of ingredients! Which funny enough, is exactly why I got around to making this recipe anyways. I had a bunch of ingredients in my pantry that I wanted to use up, hence why I made a healthier version of the monster cookie!
