The first step in making Gluten Free Monster Cookies was to dump some margarine, granulated sugar, brown sugar and peanut butter into a large mixing bowl.

Then I used an electric hand mixer to cream all the ingredients together in the bowl.

Next I added in 2 large eggs and some vanilla extract.

I used the electric hand mixer to incorporate the eggs and vanilla extract before adding in the dry ingredients.

For the dry ingredients I measured in Bob’s Red Mill 1 to 1 Gluten Free Baking Flour, gluten free quick oats, baking powder, baking soda and a bit of salt.

After beating in the dry ingredients with the electric hand mixer until creamy it was time to get the candy ready.

I poured a bag of M & M candies inside a Ziploc bag.  Then I used a rollling pin to coarsely crush the candy pieces.

Once the candy was coarsely crushed I added it to the mixing bowl and folded the pieces in using a large wooden spoon.

Once the cookie dough was ready I lined a cookie sheet with parchment paper.

Then using a one tablespoon scoop I dropped cookie dough balls onto the cookie sheet.

I placed the cookie sheet into a preheated 350F oven for 10 – 12 minutes or until the cookies were turning golden brown around the bottom edge.

After removing the Gluten Free Monster cookies from the oven I allowed them to cool on the baking pan for about 10 minutes before transferring them to a cooling rack.

Loaded with M & M bits these Gluten Free Monster Cookies are sure to delight any littles you may have on hand.

I can confirm that they will be enjoyed by the big people in your house as well!  They do not last very long around here.

These flavourful cookies are a crisp delight that add a colourful pop to any dessert tray.
