Reduced Sugar Monster Cookies

Every year we trick or treat in the same neighborhood and the candy passed out more than any other are M&M’s. Last year I think I ended up freezing over 20 bags between the two kids, so you need to watch this Monster Cookie Video to find out the perfect recipe to make with them!

I teamed up with Truvia sweetener to show you one of their favorite recipes. They’re lower in added sugar than other Monster Cookie recipes and a great way to incorporate all that leftover Halloween candy your kids brought home last weekend. The best part is that you can freeze the candy to make these any time of year. For those kids who can’t possibly find a cookie big enough to satisfy their sweet tooth craving you have to try making these beauties. They’re soft on the inside, golden on the outside and a treat everyone will go gaga for! Check out the full written recipe from Truvia sweetener!

    Do you worry about all the food coloring and other junk in the candy?
    That is one of my main concerns about my kids consuming M&M's.

      I worry about that leilei. I did a happy dance right in the middle of the candy aisle at Target when I found they had Unreal candies back on the shelf (the kids got a huge kick out of the dance!). Unreals had been gone for a year and a half because the brand was reformulating or something. Check them out at www.unreal.com. LOVE them!!

    Looks and sounds yummy. I'm still worried about the total amount of sugar per cookie, though. I think 6 grams of sugar per cookie (even though it's about half a a regular cookie) is still a lot. May give these a try, anyway :-).
