{Holiday} Monster Cookie Bars

Ok, so these aren't so much a holiday monster bar as Monster Bar Cookies with holiday-colored candies in them. Since baking is not really my thing, that's good enough for me.

These bars are easy- you only need one large bowl- and some simple ingredients. There is definitely sugar in these but no flour- gluten free otherwise! I have made them with sugar alternatives (Erythritol and Stevia) but when you're bringing something to share at a party, you don't want to bring something that could potentially cause digestive upset. You gotta know your audience... So, here's the simple, gooey, {holiday} Monster Cookie Bar recipe. 

Ingredients

4 eggs

1 1/2 C Sugar

1 C Brown Sugar

3/4 t Salt

1 T Vanilla

16oz jar natural peanut butter

5 T butter

2 1/2 t baking soda 

5 Cups Gluten Free old fashioned oats

1 C mini holiday M&Ms (or normal for non-holiday times)

1/2 C-1 C Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips

Directions

Grease Jelly Roll pan generously. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a large bowl, combine eggs with the sugar and blend well. Then beat in salt, vanilla, PB and butter until smooth. Stir in baking soda and be sure to combine well. Then add oats and candy and chocolate. Spread the batter in pan and smooth the top so that it is even. 

Bake for 22-27 minutes until lightly golden brown and center is firm. Cool completely before cutting. 

Enjoy!
