One of my favorite way to bond with my kids is in the kitchen. I love spending time making messes and cooking with them. Something about food brings people together. I also want my children to leave this house knowing how to cook so they don’t end up eating junk.
My son loves cooking, and he loves monsters so we recently made some monster cookies. We were inspired by our latest Kidstir box which was full of Halloween themed food. In case you are considering Kidstir, I would say it is by far our favorite subscription box! My son loves putting the recipe cards into his binder and receiving new utensils for his drawer in the kitchen.
Yummy Monster Cookies
1 1/4 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup white sugar
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 1/2 cups peanut butter
2 tsp vanilla
2 tsp baking soda
One bag of Fall colored M&Ms
1 cup of milk chocolate chips
4 cups old-fashioned oats
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. In a large bowl, cream together sugars and butter until fluffy using your mixer. Add butter, peanut butter, vanilla, baking soda, and oats, mix well. Add in each egg, mixing well between each. Stir in M&Ms and chocolate chips. Scoop golf ball sized amounts of dough onto your parchment paper. Bake 12-15 minutes. Enjoy!
