279. Timmy’s Monster Cookie [Single Serving, GF, Flourless, Egg-Free, No Sugar Added)

Monster Cookie | Single Serving, GF, Egg Free, No Added Sugar | Ann Ning Learning How


I love how easy this cookie recipe is.  My posts have been a little heavier this week, so I wanted to send you of to enjoy your weekend with something light and fun.  Boo Boo asked last week if the Emergency Cookies worked with peanut butter.  (Timmy likes PB.)  Based on the success of this recipe, I’m going with “YES.”

Flourless Emergency Cookies | GF, Vegan, NSA| Ann Ning Learning HowLast weekend Ruthie asked me if I called them “Emergency Cookies” bc I was having last-minute company and I wanted to make something for my guests.  No-no, I assured her.  The fact that I wanted a cookie and had nothing suitable on hand constituted an emergency for me.  All 3 times.  Glad we cleared that up.

But I wanted to try a peanut butter cookie recipe for Timmy (side note: no one else calls him “Timmy” apart from our family.  Ai Ai says I started it a long time ago, but I have no recollection of this – which isn’t to say that it’s not true), and this is also a good cookie option for MMN/Mrs. T – I can’t wait to tell her about it.  Peanut Butter lovers UNITE!

PS.  I tried this twice.  The first time I used more applesauce, and the cookie was a little soft – still delicious – but soft.  This might have been influenced by my inability to wait for the cookie to cool before consuming it, though.  Tip:  if you are like me, and can’t wait to eat the cookie, use a fork and be happy.  On the second round (the recipe I’m going with below) I used less applesauce, plus I let it cool and the texture was suitable for hand-eating.

Timmy’s Monster Cookie [GF, Flourless, Egg-Free, NSA]

Single Serving
Preheat toaster oven to 350 

  • 2 Tbsp peanut butter
  • 1 Tbsp GF rolled oats, or sub coconut
  • ½ Tbsp ground flax
  • ½ Tbsp unsweetened applesauce
  • a few M&M’s (as many as you feel comfortable with)

Mix well.  Form a cookie on a piece of parchment paper on a small tray.  I also tried a silicon muffin thing – that’s why the cookie in my picture is small (it’s tall).  Depending on your method, the cookie could be plenty big.  If there are two of you, double the recipe.  Dot the top with M&M’s if you like.  Bake at 350 for 12 minutes.

  1. Excited to see where the wednesday mnms landed!! I will have to give this a try!! I needed emergency sweets last night so I made Rice Krispies treats…want to exchange??

  2. Tonight was just the night for these, Ning. Thank you!! 🙂 Sadly, I didn’t have M&Ms so we had to use chocolate chips, but they turned out yummy nonetheless. I have restrained from all baked goods (in addition to buttercream and chocolate/sugary treats) all week – but tonight I had one of these. Especially seeing as they are technically “healthy” compared to my usual supply of baked goods. Tim says thanks, too. Something sweet was essential tonight and this hit the spot! 🙂 XOXOs

  3. Had a baked goods emergency tonight (i.e., there were absolutely none in my house, not even in the freezer)…so made a quadruple batch of these :). Baking half now and saving the rest of the batter in the fridge for tomorrow. Love this recipe, Ning!

Comments, anyone? Thanks for saying "hi" :) (Sorry I can't reply all the time, but when I do the reply appears only on this blog unless I remember to reply via email.)
