All You Need to Know about these easy cookies:
- These Monster cookies are gluten free since they don't have any flour!
- It is best to use what I deem to be regular peanut butter. Natural peanut butters are too oily and wont work.
- Using Margarine makes these cookies Dairy Free* (some margarine contains dairy so read your labels) but you can definitely use butter if that is your go to! Just make sure it is softened first 😀
- I use my ¼ Cup measuring cup to scoop out the "dough" onto the cookie sheet
- It is important to not over crowd the pan with these cookies, they spread A LOT. I put four cookies on a standard size cookie sheet.
- These cookies do not require any chill time. If you do chill them they will still turn out but might need a bit longer in the oven.
- I do not flatten the gluten free monster cookie dough before baking, they will do that all on their own.
- You will be tempted to remove the cookies from the cookie sheet after baking is complete. Do not do it. Let them cool completely on the sheet to 'set up' before you even think about removing them.
