White Chocolate Cranberry Monster Cookies

Anyone out there fans of monster cookies? I am not sure how you could NOT be. I mean, you can throw just about anything in them and they are scrumptious. Thats the magic of monster cookies, nuts, chocolate candies, raisins, chocolate chips, white chocolate chips, dried fruit, you get the drift. I mean, you could practically call these cookies Kitchen Sink cookies :) Today's monster cookies include white and chocolate chips and dried cranberries. Yum.

This is another one of those naturally gluten free recipes where you don't need to really make any substitutions. Aren't these type recipes the best?

They are so darned easy.

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and grease a cookie sheet.

 For the cookies, cream together 2 eggs and 1/2 cups plus 2 tablespoons brown sugar and 1/2 cup sugar (now I have omitted the white sugar in the past and the cookies still turned out great). Now add 1/4 teaspoon salt, 1 teaspoon baking soda, and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract. Then add in 6oz of gluten free peanut blending well. Now it's time for the fun stuff. I added 1/4 cup white chocolate chips, 2 tablespoons chocolate chips, and 1/4 cup dried cranberries. You really can add just about whatever goodies you like in whatever measurments. The last step is to stir in 2 1/4 cups gluten free oats. That's it. Now scoop out the cookie dough in Tablespoon measurements and roll them into balls and place them on the greased cookie sheet. Bake them at 350 for 8-9 minutes (try not to overbake them).

That's it :) I hope you all enjoy!


  1. Oooooooooooooooh! Must try these soon!! My nephew has been asking to help make 'real' cookies.. not out of the pagkage :D

  2. I noticed that the recipe says to "add in 6 oz of gluten free peanut (blending well)". Peanut what; peanut butter, finely chopped peanuts, or peanut meal?

  3. Hi there Lora

    I'm sorry I'm a space case and missed "butter" in the instructions. You will want to add 6oz of peanut BUTTER. So sorry about that!
