Monster Cookies

This recipe has been a favorite in our family for many years.  Because it is an oat based recipe it is good for those with gluten sensitivities.  Get the kids involved in the kitchen.  After they squeeze the dough together they will soon have monster hands.   M&Ms come in all different colors for the seasons giving many options.  We used this recipe as wedding favors for my daughter and son-in-law’s special day.
