Christmas Monster Cookies

One of my favorite traditions is spending the day of Christmas Eve, Eve (the 23rd) baking Christmas Cookies & other goodies. I was busy today making over 6 dozen types of treats, including these Christmas Monster Cookies!
Here is what you need:
1 1/3 Cup of 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 Christmas 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)
Add all ingredients to a bowl (except chocolate chip and m&m's)
Mix it well:
 Mix in the m&m's:
 And chocolate chips:
 I always "test" the dough at this point to make sure it's okay ;)
 Roll into balls:
 Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes:
 We love these cookies!
They are super easy to make & I love the red & green colors!
Hope you love them!
I will be back tomorrow with my easy & delicous fudge recipe that takes less than 10 minutes to make!
Merry Christmas Eve, Eve!

  1. You know I'm a sucker for a cookie...especially a Christmas cookie!! Merry Christmas Mel!!

  2. These look delicious! What's the lining you put down on your cookie sheet?

  3. Hi Mel, Hope your family had a Merry Christmas! Such a coincidence, I tried out your CHRISTMAS COOKIES IN A JAR recipe a couple of days ago to test out the layering and baking,before gifting it in future - it was yummy, thanks for the easy steps and the printable label.I definitely want to try it this Monster Cookie recipe, I think the PB addition and for my humid climate adding the M&Ms last, will make for a great cookie!

    I was wondering what the shelf life is for the Cookie mix in the jar? I read online that the flour mix can lose it's strength over time...not sure if that's the case... so just wondering what was your experience how long is it gift jar mix good for?

    I love your recipes and have tried a good number of them -- they are both delicious and visually appealing! I have a feedback point, I wonder if you could consider perhaps writing out your recipe at the bottom of your posts so it can be easily printed out?

    Thanks so much for your wonderful blog posts, really love reading along, (I'll try to leave a few more comments, sorry!)
    Happy festive season Larsons!
