Chocolate Monster Cookies Recipe

My four grandsons stated attending "Grandma's Cooking School" when they were as young as 4. This recipe from my hand-written cookbook is a favorite of the youngest, Brandon. He has fun making them and is always delighted with the results as is the rest of the family.—Helen Hilbert, Liverpool, New York

"I wouldn't even make this recipie the way it is once- it is definitely very unhealthy. I transformed it into a healthy recipie:1 cup less of butter and sugar ea. -only organic evaporated cane juice sugar,organic eggs,1/4 cup chocolate almond silk3 1/2 C. wheat free flour (sorghum, spelt, rice or millet),1/2 C. organic cocoa powder,aluminum free baking powder,sea salt,organic corn flakes (free of high fructose corn syrup),organic oats,organic bitter-sweet chocolate chips,organic mixed chopped nuts- almonds, cashews, walnuts, pecans, hazelnuts & sunflower seeds.(dry & wet can be adjusted accordingly.Cook in muffin tin filling halfway thru for real monster cookies (half the size of a muffin)."
