Garage Sale and Gluten Free Monster Cookies


thursday- 2 miles on TM + abs

I just did not have the attention span for my workout yesterday. The treadmill was just too boring so it was short and sweet. I figured my face was boring you guys too,so I decided to spice it up for ya…you’re welcome(:

J dressed himself yesterday and was really proud of it. We’ve been having really hot weather in UT and yesterday morning it was only 80* so J thought it was perfect jacket weather.

After we got ready J, baby M and I picked up my mom to bring her to the airport. I found this(and 15 others) on my phone of the car ride. J is  gonna be a great little assistant blogger someday.

We had the rest of the day to chill so why not make some monster cookies? I shared a photo on Instagram and now I’m delivering with the recipe!

1 1/2 cups Peanut butter
1 stick softened butter

1 cup Brown sugar

1 cup White sugar

2 tsp vanilla extract

3 eggs

4 1/2 cups oats

2 tsp baking soda

1 cup Chocolate chips

1 cup M & M’s

Mix the first 4 ingredients together. Then mix in the vanilla, butter and eggs. Combine all the dry ingredients then add to wet ingredients and mix. Bake at 350* for 10 minutes. DO NOT OVER COOK or they will become very chewy. Enjoy!

The rest of the evening I got to spend with these awesome ladies(Jen left before the pic, but know she is awesome too).

We sorted through so much donated items. I’m organizing a garage sale for my good friend Shannon who just adopted a sweet little boy. I had posted a bunch of flyers asking for donations and so many people delivered. I’m overwhelmed with all the help I’ve received. Can’t wait for Saturday!!! (If you’re local check my FB for details)

That’s not even half the stuff, there is so much in the garage we still had to sort through!

About Sugar Plum Runner

Welcome to the Sugar Plum Runner! I grew up in WA state, but currently reside in UT with my husband Josh, son Jackson, and 2 daughters Lily and Claire. I love running, but I have never been so inspired to run, race, and blog about it since 4 years ago after I had Jackson. I grew up playing soccer and cheered in high school. My favorite part of both sports(and yes I consider cheer leading a sport) was the conditioning. I found myself running after practice was over on my own. That's when I realized that running may be the sport I really loved.

    Living in Manhattan for so long, I kind of forgot all about garage sales! Now that I am in Denver, I totally scope them out – they are the perfect place to stock up on books for my classroom 🙂

  2. Monster cookies are definitely one of the BEST kinds of cookies. I also really love peanut butter blossoms and frosted sugar cookies.

  3. I used to go to garage sales with my ma all the time growing up! I hope it is a successful one! Have a good wknd!

  4. Awesome!! I’ll have to see if I can stop by! You are so sweet to do this for them.
