Monster Cookies

November 19, 2015


I've been wanting to make monster cookies for, um, like, forever.  Why this recipe has escaped me, is beyond me, but, I'm so glad these cookies have entered my life.  They are so soft, peanut buttery and just plain delicious.

If you are not familiar with these, they are basically peanut butter oatmeal cookies. They are also filled with chocolate and candy.  Oh, and a whole stick of butter and zero flour.  They are dreamy. I may or may not have eaten an excess of these and didn't feel any guilt whatsoever.  Don't tell my kids.

Give these a try and be sure to have a nice, cold, glass of milk to go with them!

small side note: The recipe below call for quick cooking oats.  If you don't have any on hand, you can use old fashion.  Just give them a quick pulse in your food processor before adding to the batter.

In a mixing bowl, beat peanut butter with sugar and softened butter until combined. Add in eggs and vanilla. Then, add in oats and baking soda. Your batter will be thick.
