One Bowl Monster Cookies
Everyone's favorite childhood halloween cookie! You only need one bowl and a hand full of ingredients to make these buttery and golden 20 Halloween monster cookies. They're made without eggs, dairy, and can be made gluten free!
Monster Cookies Ingredients
- 2 tablespoon flax seed meal
- 4 tablespoon warm water
- ½ cup melted vegan butter or coconut oil
- ¾ cup organic cane sugar or ⅓ to ½ cup purecane sugar-free substitute
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 tablespoon almond or oat milk
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- 1 ¼ cup regular or gluten free all purpose flour If gluten-free, I recommend King Arthur Measure for Measure gluten-free flour. Please don't substitute any other flour such as almond flour, baking flour, etc.
Halloween Monster Cookie Add-Ins
- ¼ cup regular or vegan rainbow sprinkles
- ¼ cup Halloween Sprinkles
- ¼ cup candied peanuts
- ¼ cup chocolate chips
How To Make Monster Cookies
- Preheat the oven to 425. Prepare the flax egg by mixing the flax seed meal (ground flax seeds) and the warm water in your mixing bowl. Allow this to sit for 2 minutes.
- Mix in the sugar, vanilla, baking powder, almond milk, melted vegan butter, and salt. Once smooth, add 1 ¼ cup of regular or gluten free all purpose flour OR 2 cups of oat flour to the bowl and mix until a thick cookie dough forms. Fold in the sprinkles, candied peanuts, and chocolate chips.
- Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and then use a table spoon to scoop our the cookie dough. Roll the dough in your hands to make a ball and then place onto the baking sheet.
- Repeat until the sheet is full with about 2 inches between each cookie. You may need to make these in a few batches. Bake for 10-11 minutes. Remove from the oven and let the cookies flatten on the sheet for about 2 minutes. Once they've flattened, transfer them, to a cooling rack to allow them to continue to cool. Enjoy! I store these in an airtight container at room temp!
