These Candy Bar Monster Cookies are packed with oats, peanut butter, and chocolate candy for a fun twist on the fan-favorite cookie using leftover holiday candy. These cookies, while still a sweet treat, are a healthier take on the traditional monster cookie and are are naturally gluten-free, dairy-free and made with natural sweeteners.
For pretty cookies, stick additional chocolate candies on top of the cookie dough before baking.
Because these cookies have different types of chopped candy bars in them, they sometimes bake up in uneven shapes. While this does not at all affect the taste, you can reshape the cookies right after they come out of the oven into a more circular shape. To do this, take a dull knife and gently push the edges of the cookies back into a circle.
The type of peanut butter that you use here is very important. It will affect the final outcome of the cookie. Use a no-sugar added natural peanut butter that is drippy. This means a peanut butter that you have to stir the oil into when you first open it.
Use whatever chopped up candy bars that you think will be good in a cookie!
