Monster Cookies

I found some fantastic miniature peanut butter cups at my local drug store (they’re like the ones you find in moosetracks ice cream)  They’re just the perfect size for cookies and their shape held up really well even after being baked!  You can add basically whatever you want into these cookies.  They’re full of oats and peanut butter and chocolate and they’re so soft and good!

Monster Cookies recipe adapted from The King Arthur Flour Cookie Companion: The essential Cookie Cookbook

  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp corn syrup
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup melted unsalted butter
  • 1 1/2 cups peanut butter
  • 4 1/2 cups rolled oats (i used half quick oats and half old fashioned oats)
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 3/4 cups chocolate chunks (or chips)
  • 3/4 cup miniature m&m’s
  • 3/4 cup miniature peanut butter cups

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  Line baking sheet with parchment

Combine the eggs, sugars and vanilla, corn syrup, baking soda and salt.  Add the melted butter, followed by the peanut butter, oats and flour and mix thoroughly

Stir in the chocolate and other goodies and then let the dough rest for 30 minutes so the oats have a chance to absorb the butter.

Roll 1/8 cup of dough into a ball and flatted slightly on baking sheet.   Bake 10-14 minutes or until cookies are lightly browned.   Remove pans from the oven and let cookies cool for 5 minutes on the pans before removing them to cool further on wire racks.
