Raaah! Vegan Monster Cookies

So I did a search for Vegan Monster Cookies and the results were bizarre. I found recipes for healthy cookies (sugar free, gluten free, etc.) and for links to the actual Cookie Monster. After some work, I found this recipe from The Healthy Everythingtarian. I made a few tweaks to it and am super pleased with how they turned out. I have to work with the recipe a little more because they became super crunchy after cooling. I’m a firm believer that all cookies should be soft and chewy, never crunchy.

Oh, and for the record, these are far from healthy. I added extra fat by including peanut butter…but I suppose it’s the good fat. Enjoy!
