Monster Cookies

These aren’t called Monster cookies because they have scary faces on them… it’s because they are LARGE and full of all sorts of yummy ingredients. This is a large batch so you can cut it as you wish. These things eat like a meal!

Here’s the cast of characters… these are definitely an indulgent cookie!

Start with 2 sticks of butter and 2 cups each of white and brown sugar in the bowl.

Pour in a couple teaspoons of vanilla…

Next come the eggs… 6 to be exact… told you its a large batch!! Here’s my sous chef cracking the eggs. He’s 4 πŸ™‚ Proof it’s never too early to start teaching your kids to cook!

Get the eggs in the bowl and mix to combine.

In goes a couple of tsp of salt…

and an entire small jar of peanut butter. I had creamy on hand but crunchy is good too. It’s about 2 1/2 cups.

Then comes 4 cups of oatmeal… again my sous chef is helping. Excuse the dress, his Spiderman costume was at the cleaners πŸ˜‰

Mix that up…

Add in 2 cups of flour. I used Pamela’s GF flour but any will do.

At this point you’ll want to transfer it to a large bowl for easier mixing of the next ingredients…

1 bag M&M’s and 1 bag chocolate chips… stir with the most sturdy spoon you have!

I like to make my monster cookies monster big so I use a large ice cream scoop to drop them onto parchment. You can make them smaller if you wish. Bake at 350 rotating the pans to opposite shelves half way through.

They will be a little golden on the edges but gooey on the inside… perfect…

Transfer to cooling racks and hold off as long as you can…

      Mine is really into cracking eggs and comes running anytime I’m baking to see if I need eggs in the recipe. He’s very meticulous and doesn’t like to get the egg on his hands but will play in mud up to his ears… boys!
