Monster Cookies

I think these bad guys need no introduction. Their reputation definitely precedes them. This was the first time I tasted one, let alone made one. I was very pleased with the way they turned out. They were nice and chewy. There are so many flavors and textures in there. In every bite you can taste the peanut butter, the chocolate and the candy. I think this is also a lot healthier than the average cookie since this recipe uses no flour. It just uses old fashioned oats, which are packed with fiber, which is really good for your health. This cookie is now one of my favorite ways to eat oats 🙂

When you sit down to eat these cookies, please make sure that you have a tall glass of milk to go with it. The experience will be totally blissful.

Monster Cookies

1/2 cup salted butter, softened

1 cup plus 2 tablespoons packed brown sugar
1 cup white sugar
3 eggs
3/4 tsp light corn syrup
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 tsp salt
2 tsp baking soda
1 cup chocolate chips
2 cups peanut butter
4 1/2 cups old fashion oats
1 cup M&M’s candies (or Smarties or Gems)
Preheat oven to 175º C.
Lightly grease cookie sheets and set aside.
Cream together the butter and the sugars.
Add the eggs, peanut butter, corn syrup, and vanilla extract and beat well.
Add the oats, baking soda, and salt and stir well.

Stir in remaining ingredients.
Using an ice cream scoop, scoop out batter onto the cookie sheets, leaving some space between them. Flatten them out a little.
Bake for 12-15 minutes. The center of the cookies will be slightly soft. 


Note: I halved the recipe and got about 20 cookies.
