Sample Recipe: Cookie Monster Bites (Skill Level: EASY)
Prep time: 10 minutes, plus 30 minutes to chill / Yield: 20 servings / Dairy-Free, Gluten-Free, Vegan, Vegetarian
Cookie Monster himself wouldn’t be able to get enough of these sweet and creamy treats!
1. Mix the ingredients. In a large bowl, stir together the oats, peanut butter, chocolate chips, maple syrup, vanilla, and salt until combined.
2. Roll the monster bites. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Taking small handfuls of the mixture, roll them into small balls 1 to 2 inches in size or use a cookie scoop. Place on the baking sheet.
3. Chill the bites. Refrigerate the bites for 30 minutes, or until solid. Store in an airtight container or zip-top bag and enjoy.
Make it your own:
Try different mix-ins for your monster bites! Almond butter or cashew butter tastes great in this recipe—even tahini would work in place of the peanut butter.

- 1 cup rolled oats or quick-cooking oats
- 1/2 cup peanut butter
- 1/4 cup mini dark chocolate chips

2) Pretzels were hard to shape, but tasty. Husband didn't like the added mustard in the cheese dip.
3) Blueberry Blast Banana Bread turned out a little too dark and thick on the crust. Not very sweet, but edible.
4) The Bunny Pancakes were a little thick at the 1/4 cup recommendation, otherwise fine.
5) Turkey Sliders were delicious, hard to make the ground turkey stick together in a patty shape, but so tasty.
6) Magic Wands (chicken skewers) were delicious
7) Burrito Boats (zucchini boats) were fantastic.
8) Smashed Smiley Face Guacamole was good.
9) Broccoli Cheese Nuggets were overcooked (again see cooking time issues)
10) Rainbow Pinwheels were good, use a nice thick layer of cream cheese on the entire wrap.
11) Butterfly Quesadillas were good, but again 5 mins on medium in the skillet was too long. 3 mins was plenty for us on the new electric Kenmore glass top on a level 4 on the dual burner.
12) Sunshine Soup (butternut squash soup) was really good even 4 days later, could have done without the cumin. Heavy whipping cream added (as my mom does) makes it wonderful. Don't season the croutons with garlic or it will overpower the soup.
Overall the book is good, with little diary-type spaces in the margins for notes. Instructions are written plainly and in a simple format for young kids. The recipe names are all cute and appealing.
Almost all the recipes we have tried seemed to need a little less cooking time, so watch the item even 15 mins before the time is up.
Some recipes may not taste good to younger kids (guacamole, squash soup, zucchini boats), but they are learning to cook and that's the point.
We also bought the Kid Chef Foodie Kids cookbook and I recommend that for ages 10 and up.
