As a mother of two school-age children, monster cookies have quickly become my go-to recipe for taking to school parties and events.

I like monster cookies because you just really can’t go wrong when making them. They always look a little thrown-together and messy, and I’m totally okay with that. The most important thing is that they are full of good stuff on the inside.

You know, I think the monster cookie is a metaphor for my life. Haha!

Monster Cookies

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1 cup butter,  softened
  • 1 ½ cups packed brown sugar
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • ½ cup all purpose flour
  • 4 cups quick oats
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup M&M’s

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl beat the peanut butter and the butter together until smooth and creamy. Add the brown sugar, granulated sugar and the baking soda and beat until well combined. Beat in the eggs one at a time just until combined. Beat in the vanilla. Beat in the flour. Using a large spoon stir in the oats. Add the chocolate chips and stir, then add the M&M’s and stir.
  1. Drop rounded tablespoons 2 inches apart onto cookie sheet. Bake for 9 to 11 minutes, or until edges are lightly brown. The tops will look a little under-cooked. Cool on the cookie sheet for about 10 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to completely cool.
