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.
Here’s what you’ll need to make them:
Pumpkin Biscoff Monster Cookies
- 2 sticks butter softened
- 14 oz jar Biscoff
- 3 eggs
- 1/2 tsp. vanilla
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 15 oz can pumpkin
- 1/2 cup flour
- 1 tsp. salt
- 2 tsp. baking soda
- 5 cups quick oats
- 2 cups chocolate chips
- 2 cups M&Ms
- Cream butter and Biscoff together in large mixing bowl.
- Mix in eggs, vanilla, sugars and pumpkin.
- Add flour, salt, baking soda and quick oats.
- Mix till well combined.
- Stir in chocolate chips and M&Ms.
- Drop by spoonfuls onto baking stone or cookie sheet.
- Bake at 375 degrees for 10 minutes.

YUM YUM and YUM! I voted too!
fabulous cookie creation!
What is Biscoff? Is it the same as Bisquick. I have never heard of it.
Biscoff is the same texture as peanut butter, but no peanut. It’s made from cookies. You can see it in the photo of the ingredients. Find it near peanut butter in many grocery stores (although our Walmart doesn’t carry it).
Thanks, I will have to take a look for it.
These seemed like such a good idea, unfortunately they fell apart or remained too wet even with extra cooking time. We used the cookie crumbles with ice cream and that was yummy.
