Pumpkin Biscoff Monster Cookies

It’s no secret that I love oats. I recently confessed to having 6 boxes of quick oats in the pantry, because I’m apparently afraid of running out.

But I didn’t realize until recently that we as a country actually have a National Oatmeal Day – October 29.

These cookies are perfect for celebrating National Oatmeal Day or any day, for that matter.

These are an adaptation of the traditional monster cookie. Instead of peanut butter, which I don’t think would be good with pumpkin, I used Biscoff. The consistency is about the same as peanut butter, but it’s made with mildly spiced ginger cookies so it pairs nicely with the pumpkin.

This version of monster cookies is softer than the traditional monsters. But they are every bit as delicious. It also makes a monster-sized batch of cookies. You will be at the oven, baking for quite a while.

The good news is that the cookies freeze well. Because they are soft, I recommend freezing them in a single layer or in layers separated with wax paper.
