Make These Monster Cookies

It was time for a new cookie recipe and I remembered these super addictive and delicious monster cookies my brother had shared a few years back.

You’ll need:

  • 3 eggs
  • 1 1/4 C packed light brown sugar
  • 1 C sugar
  • 1/2 t salt
  • 1/2 t vanilla
  • 12 ounces creamy peanut butter
  • 1 stick softened butter
  • 1/2 C M&M’s
  • 1/2 C chocolate chips
  • 2 t baking soda
  • 4 1/2 C quick oatmeal (not instant)


  • Preheat oven to 350.
  • Line cookie sheet with a silicone baking mat or if you don’t have one parchment paper will do just fine.
  • In your kitchen aid bowl add eggs and sugars, mix well.
  • Next add salt, vanilla, pb and butter.
  • Next stir in M&M’s, chocolate chips, baking soda and oatmeal.
  • Use a cookie scoop to place onto your lined cookie sheet.
  • Bake for 8-10 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven and cool for 2 minutes before moving them or they will fall apart.

I have to warn you, you may want to eat the entire four-plus dozen cookies within a few days. In fact, it may have made 5 dozen but I think we ate a dozen cookies worth of the dough. We shared some with family and was a fun activity to do with the kids!
