Monster Cookies

School starts back up in less than 2 weeks.
That makes me sad.
When I am sad, I like to bake cookies.
 Homemade cookies are a great way to cheer up!
Plus, on our Summer List we put "Make Cookies for our Neighbors"
We knew just the cookies to make:
 Here is what you need:
1 1/3 cup all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 egg
1 stick of butter, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup quick oats
1/3 cup m&ms
2/3 cup chocolate chips (I use milk chocolate)
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup Peanut Butter (I use Skippy Natural)

Add all ingredients to a bowl (except chocolate chip and m&m's)
 Beat well for about 1-2 minutes.
 Then add chocolate chips and m&m's.
 Stir until combined.
 Using a cookie scoop, form into balls.
 Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes.
When slightly cooled, transfer to a cooling rack.
Your kitchen smells amazing at this point.
This recipe makes 2 dozen cookies.
These are some of our favorite cookies.
Oatmeal? Good. Chocolate Chips? Good. M&M's? Good. Peanut Butter? Good.
What's not to like?!?

  1. Yummmmmmy girl! Those cookies look so good! I wish I were one of your neighbors :).

  2. I made the monster cookies today. They were awesome!!!

  3. I make your chocolate chip zucchini muffins all the time! These look awesome as well! Thanks!

  4. Oh my goodness, those look delicious (ALL of them)!! Thanks for sharing!


  5. These look wonderful! We made chocolate chip cookies this week to give to my daughters teacher in the first day of school.

  6. Here's a question - I made these today and the fam loved them! BUT the recipe calls for quick oats and the picture shows old-fashioned oats. Do you typically use quick oats or the regular rolled oats?

  7. I made these today, but the cookie dough came out very crumbly. Odd. Do you know what could have caused this? Thanks!

  8. I made these today, but the cookie dough came out very crumbly. Odd. Do you know what could have caused this? Our dough isn't coming out as doughy. Thanks!
