Monster Cookies

Monster Cookies


1/2 cup all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
6 cups quick-cooking oats
1 cup unsalted butter, softened
2 cups creamy peanut butter
2 cups granulated sugar
2 cups firmly packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon corn syrup
4 large eggs
2 cups semisweet or dark chocolate chips
2 cups M&M’s

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Butter cookie sheets.

In a large mixing bowl, sift together flour, baking soda and salt. Whisk in oats until combined.

In a VERY large mixing bowl, using a mixer on medium speed, beat together butter, peanut butter, granulated sugar and brown sugar, until creamy, about 2-3 minutes. Beat in vanilla, corn syrup and eggs, until well combined, about 2 minutes. Beat in flour-oat mixture until combined. Beat in chocolate chips and M&M’s until well combined.

At this point, I chilled my dough, but I don’t think it was necessary. I probably chilled it for 20 minutes in the freezer.

Measure out dough into equal, round balls, and place on prepared sheet pan, spacing fairly far apart (they spread quite a bit). Flatten balls using the palms of your hand, or the bottom of a drinking glass. Use 1/4 cup measure for big cookies. Bake at 350 degrees F, for 12-15 minutes, or until golden brown and set. Cool for 3 minutes before transferring to wire racks to cool.

Makes a ton of cookies.
Let’s say 5 dozen

Banana Oatmeal Chocochip Cookie

Banana Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie

 On Friday, I enjoyed a night with friends in front of a bonfire!  I haven’t laughed so hard in a long time.  I can’t believe I have lived in Bismarck for only a year, and I already have friends that will last a lifetime.  So thankful!  I thought I would pass on my happiness on Saturday: I helped my former boss with painting her baby room blue. 

I saw this recipe on www.cookiemadness.net, one of my favorite go to places for new and different dessert recipes.  I LOVED these cookies.  I ate 3 right out of the oven…I usually limit myself to one, maybe two, but never three.  I whipped them up in less than 7 minutes. 


  • 1 1/2 cups oat flour
  • 3/4 cup rolled oats
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup raw sugar
  • 1/3 cup chocolate chips (I used white too)
  • 1 teaspoon canola oil
  • 1/3 cup soy milk
  • 1/2 cup banana puree (1 medium-size banana)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Cooking Directions

    Preheat oven to 375°F.

    Combine all the dry ingredients in a bowl.

    Combine all the wet ingredients in a separate bowl. Mix the dry and wet ingredients together, until well combined.  Use a medium-size ice cream scoop or a large spoon to scoop batter onto a cookie sheet covered with wax paper.  Bake for 12 minutes, rotating the pan halfway through cooking, or bake until the edges of the cookies are light brown.  Makes 18 cookies.
