We call these Monster Cookies because they are BIG cookies. They are loaded with oats, peanut butter, M&M’s, and, of course, chocolate chips!
These cookies are named “Monster Cookies” for three reasons: 1) this recipe makes a monstrous amount of cookies, 2) the cookies themselves are HUGE, and 3) people are going to start calling you the Cookie Monster because you will NOT be able to stop snacking on these! Monster Cookies are easily my favorite cookies of all time. They have EVERYTHING! Oats, peanut butter, M&M’s and, of course, chocolate chips!
I took voice lessons in high school and every Christmas my teacher would bake these cookies and hand them out to her students. It was truly the most wonderful time of the year! This recipe is everything you need for holiday baking — its easy, it makes a TON for all your friends and neighbors, and the cookies are SO GOOD!
Because the cookies are bigger, make sure to space them out really well on the cookie sheet so they don’t run into each other while they bake. Of course, if you are looking for a smaller batch, you can half (or even fourth) this recipe and it will still turn out great! Or, you can make up all the dough, freeze it, and bake it later! Just make sure you let it thaw to room temperature before you put it in the oven. Happy Baking!
