Monster Cookies

An internet friend recently asked me for this recipe and since I never posted it months ago when I made the holiday gift boxes for my co-workers, here it is now, with her photo.

Thanks Leeshebee, these look yummo!

INGREDIENTS (makes 3 dozen)
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 1/4 cups packed brown sugar (I use dark for everything whether it calls for light or dark)
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt ( can omit, I always do)
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 12-ounce jar creamy peanut butter
  • 1 stick butter, softened
  • 1/2 -3/4 c M&Ms1/2 cup chocolate chips
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 4 1/2 cups old fashioned oatmeal(not instant)
  • 1/4-1/2c flour, if necessary. You do not want them to be too too mushy and sticky where you think they will run but they will be mushy/sticky b/c of the peanut butter. Many recipes do not call for the flour, I have not tried without but they are PERFECT with.
  • Set oven to 350
  • Spray cookie sheet with pam or line with wax paper
  • In the largest bowl you own (or even a pot) combine eggs and sugar, mix well ( I use a hand mixer but you can do it by hand).
  • Add vanilla, peanut butter, and butter. Mix again.
  • Add baking soda and oatmeal, mix. (it may be hard with a mixer so do this by hand with a good wooden spoon.
  • Stir in the choc chips and M&Ms. Drop 2 inches apart on sheet and bake 9-12 minutes, depending on oven--keep a close eye on them after 9 minutes!
  • They will come out nice and soft.
  • Let them cool for 2-3 minutes on the sheet then remove to cool on wire racks or counter/plate/whatever you use for cooling.Store in container with lid or ziplock to avoid them getting hard.
