Monster Cookies

Printable Recipe

I'm sure everyone has seen or tried a Monster cookie before.  These are pretty versatile and you can add just about anything you want ... raisins, (chocolate-covered raisins would be good), nuts, anything that suits you.  And they contain no flour! 

1/2 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1 1/2 cups brown sugar
1 tsp corn syrup
3 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 cups peanut butter
4 1/2 cups oatmeal
2 tsp baking soda
1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
1 cup M&Ms

Cream the butter, sugar, brown sugar and corn syrup until well mixed. Beat in the eggs and vanilla.  Beat in the peanut butter.  Beat in the oatmeal, baking soda, chocolate chips and M&Ms until thoroughly combined.  Scoop onto cookie sheets and bake 350 degrees for 9-12 minutes, or until browned.  Length of baking time will depend upon the size of the cookie.  Larger cookies may take up to 15 minutes.  Cool on a wire rack.
