What Are Kitchen Sink Cookies?
This recipe started as a "everything in your pantry" type of cookie, which is what kitchen sink cookies are. You open up your cupboard and see what you can add. Everything from the classics such as chocolate chips and nuts to more questionable ingredients like potato chips, pretzels and candy. Hey, anything goes for this type of cookie so don't be shy! However, it turns out we only really had a few things on hand: chocolate chips and M&Ms.
What Are Monster Cookies?
So I guess we felt it was deceiving to call these Kitchen Sink Cookies so that's why we changed it to Monster Cookies. Now, traditionally, Monster Cookies uses peanut butter, oats, M&Ms and chocolate chips, which is essentially an oatmeal chocolate chip cookie if you really think about it. We decided to do something different and make this a Monster Monster Cookie. No, that was not a typo. The first Monster is because we literally baked it into a very large single cookie. The second Monster is for the mish mash of ingredients.
Are Monster Cookies Good For You?
Despite using M&Ms, this dessert recipe is still pretty dang good for you. The oats give you 30%+ of your daily fiber and have a solid amount of protein. At the base, we have 7g from Mylk Labs oatmeal and depending on the protein powder you use, it could be close to 15g total for this cookie!
