M&M Cookies


My kids love those giant chocolate candy monster cookies. And you know…I’m racking my brain wondering WHO DOESN’T LOVE THESE COOKIES. They’re delicious!

In this recipe, I use both cane sugar and brown sugar, and a good amount of each. I have not tested with sugar substitutes, so be forewarned! BUT….You absolutely can sub for all spelt flour or all AP flour!

Oh Oh Oh. I almost forgot. To make the monster sized cookies you’re going to want to use a giant cookie scoop. In this case, I used an ice cream scooper (this one, to be exact). If you want smaller cookies (boo! Boo to you!), just decrease the bake time to a standard 9-11 minutes.

So let’s get to it shall we?
