Cookies, Dessert

Monster Cookies

 I really liked these cookies, partly because they didn’t have any flour. The options to add in to these cookies are pretty limitless. They also make really good freezer cookies. Recipe and photo courtesy of recipegirl.com.

  • 1 1/2 cups creamy peanut butter
  • 1 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 stick unsalted butter, softened
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 4 1/2 cups quick cooking oats
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • 1 cup M&M’s or Reese’s pieces

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray or line cookie sheets.  In a large bowl, combine the peanut butter with the sugars and butter and mix until well combined. Add in the eggs and vanilla, mixing well, then add the oats and baking soda.  Finally add in the chocolate chips and M&M’s. Drop by tablespoons onto the prepared cookie sheets. If desired, dot a few extra toppings on the tops of the cookies to make them look pretty.  Bake 10-12 minutes, being carefully not to overbake. Cool for 5 minutes on the sheet, then transfer to wire racks to finish cooling.
