MONSTER Cookies

These really are MONSTER cookies!!  Peanut butter, oatmeal, m&m's...how could you go wrong?!  This makes a HUGE batch of cookies - so get out the biggest bowl you have and then find a bigger one because you're going to need it!  This recipe can easily be halved or even quartered for a more manageable bowl of dough.  I often give up on using a spoon to stir this and use my (clean) hands to mix.  These also freeze really well for a quick treat at a later date. :)

Enjoy!


Monster Cookies

12 Eggs
2 lb Brown Sugar
4 Cups White Sugar
1 Tbsp Vanilla
1 Tbsp Corn Syrup
1 lb Butter, softened (do not substitute with margarine)
3 lb Peanut Butter
8 Tsp Baking Soda
18 Cups Raw Oatmeal
1 lb Chocolate Chips
1 lb M&M's

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  In large bowl, dish pan, kitchen sink (kidding...eww) mix all the ingredients in the order given.  Drop on cookie sheet with an ice-cream scoop, flattening top slightly.  Bake for 12 minutes until edges are just starting to brown - do not over bake, they'll look a little doughy coming out, but will firm up as they cool.  Cool on pan for 4-6 minutes before transferring to cooling rack to finish.

Note:  One cup of oatmeal equals about 3 ounces - so, you're going to need more than just one 42 ounce canister for the full recipe.  Peanuts and raisins can also be added if desired.




Here's an adjusted recipe for a smaller batch...

  1. I love monster cookies! And I love the name of your blog - so cute! When I made monster cookies recently i had a serious problem not eating the cookie dough straight out of the bowl!

  2. Thanks Megan! If it weren't for the raw oatmeal (a bit chewy for me raw) I would soo be eating more of this dough...I do have an incredibly hard time not eating them straight out of the oven though!
