Monster COOKIES!

One of my children's favorite activities to do is help bake cookies, especially Monster Cookies! We've got a little tradition where we work together to make the Monster Cookies, then when they're done we get a Cookie Monster book out and read it together while we have an ice cold cup of milk, along with these great cookies! Here's the recipe:

  • 3 eggs
  • 1 1/4 cups packed light brown sugar
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 12-ounce jar creamy peanut butter
  • 1 stick butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup M&M's
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 4 1/2 cups quick-cooking oatmeal (not instant)

In a large mixing bowl, combine the eggs sugar, and brown sugar. Next, stir in the salt, vanilla, peanut butter, and butter. Finish by stirring in the M&M's, chocolate chips, baking soda, and oatmeal. Drop by tablespoons 2 inches apart onto cookie sheets.

Bake at 350 F for 8 to 10 minutes.  Allow cookies to cool for 5 minutes.
