Recipe for Monster Cookies

Monster Cookie Ingredients –

  • 1 ½ C. creamy peanut butter
  • 1 C. sugar
  • 1 C. brown sugar
  • ½ C. butter, softened
  • 1 tbs. sour cream
  • 3 eggs
  • ½ tsp. vanilla extract
  • 4 ½ C. rolled oats (not quick cooking)
  • 2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 C. chocolate chips
  • 1 C. regular or baking M&M’s
  • monster cookie recipe

Directions –

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

1. In a large bowl combine the creamy peanut butter, sugar, brown sugar, butter, sour cream, vanilla and eggs. Mix well. Add in the 2 tsp. of baking soda.

2. Slowly fold in your 4 ½ C. of rolled oats, mixing well.

3. Next add in your 1 cup of chocolate chips and ¾ of the M&M’s.

4. Drop by large tablespoon onto a cookie sheet (I like to line mine with foil for super easy clean up) and gently press down into a more rounded shape. Press some of your extra M&M’s into the top of the cookie dough.

5. Bake for 10-12 minutes. Cookies will turn golden brown. Try not to over bake. They are even better if a little bit undercooked and not crunchy.

*Makes approximately 3 dozen cookies. Store in an airtight container 1-2 weeks. These cookies also freeze well.

      I am going to have to make these, Tat. I can practically taste them already! Are they soft? I love big soft cookies 🙂

      My first thought, going by the name, was a Halloween treat. However, I think these would be great for any day!!

      Since some in my family need gluten free, I made these with gluten free Chex oatmeal and they were delicious! My entire family loved them and didn’t even know they were gluten free 🙂 the Chex oatmeal is fine and very similar to real oats.

      My mom used to send these to me when I was stationed overseas thirty years ago! They freeze well and defrost in the microwave. A great cookie!

      These did not hold together for me either time I’ve made them. They fall apart easily. Any tips for a novice? Great flavor.

      What will happen if quick oats are used?

      I have been making these cookies since the 1970s! They really are delicious and the recipe makes a huge amount! You can add other ingredients if you want, ie, raisins, nuts, rice crispies. A very versatile recipe.

      Hello, Wortheys! Last Christmas, I made these marvelous Monster Cookies and gave them to friends and family as gifts, and they were a big hit. I think of them as Monster “Christmas” Cookies because, to me, they look like they are covered in Christmas tree lights! I am actually planning to bake some today to give out as gifts again this year. These cookies freeze very well, too, which is an added plus. Well into last January or February, I would occasionally pull one of them out of the freezer and have it for breakfast with my morning coffee! I hope all is well in your dear family, and may you all have a very Sweet and Merry Christmas. God bless!

        Good Morning Jill,

        Oh, that’s AWESOME!! Thank you for coming back and letting us know they were a huge hit! I never thought about them as Christmas cookies or a gift, but that’s a great idea! Merry Christmas to you too!

      These look and sounded delicious but they did not turn out on any of my attempts. They flattened out like pancakes and crumbled apart. I cooked them as long as I could- the tops began to turn dark brown- but the cookie was still incredibly underdone. Any thoughts on what I’m doing wrong? Thanks.
