Momma's Favorite Monster Cookies (Gluten-Free)

"These are my all-time favorite cookies. I grew up making them with my mom, and now I am making them for my kids. They are great as they can be made gluten-free if you use GF oats, or are tolerant to regular oatmeal."

    These cookies turned out absolutely delicious! I love that they're naturally gluten-free (given the use of GF oats). I subbed the shortening with 1/4 cup Smart Balance and 1/4 cup coconut oil, and it worked perfectly. I also did not use M&Ms, but added extra chocolate chips to make up for it, plus chopped up walnuts. Delicious! Recipe made a decent amount of cookies and I'm freezing some to eat postpartum (oats are good for lactation!). Thanks!

    Hi...These cookies sound yummy! I will have to try them and review, will steel cut oats work? I am curious though about a review you wrote on gluten free flax bread that you used kristacooks4u flour blend. I am wondering if you could tell me what that was? (I have never had a need for a membership on this site...I guess this is one of them)...
