Monster Cookies

These little cookies are so good. I was a little skeptical because there is no flour used in this recipe, but with all those oats, you just don’t need it. I’ve never had a Monster Cookie before but I’m sure glad I tried them! They have a little bit of everything in them and you can make them with whatever you want. I chose to use M&Ms and raisins. The flavors complimented the peanut butter batter well.
Monster Cookies – from Made with Love – makes ~3.5 dozen3 eggs
1 1/4 cups packed light brown sugar
1 cup granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 12-ounce jar creamy peanut butter
1 stick butter, softened
1/2 cup M&Ms
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1/4 cup raisins, optional
2 teaspoons baking soda
4 1/2 cups quick-cooking oatmeal (not instant)

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper or nonstick baking mats.

In a very large mixing bowl, combine the eggs and sugars. Mix well. Add the salt, vanilla, peanut butter, and butter. Mix well. Stir in the chocolate candies, chocolate chips, raisins, if using, baking soda, and oatmeal. Drop by tablespoons 2 inches apart onto the prepared cookie sheets.

Bake for 8 to 10 minutes. Do not overbake. Let stand for about 3 minutes before transferring to wire racks to cool. When cool, store in large resealable plastic bags.

    Yea, we really like the candy cane kisses. They have little bits of candy cane in them so there’s a tiny bit of crunch.

    Thanks for pointing that out Jamie. I updated the recipe. You add the vanilla after the eggs.
