Does anyone have a good recipe for chewy monster cookies? My husband was talking about how much he liked them and I thought I'd make them for Father's Day but I lost my recipe.
I just use my regular oatmeal or chocolate chip cookie recipe and make them big!
Didn't know there was a special recipe....
I've only made them a couple times and it was a while back...
I "think" Monster Cookies are usually made with little or no flour, include peanut butter, lots of rolled oats, and M&M's. They are really good.
You can use almost any regular cookie dough. One trick: you need to spread the dough out in a large circle AND make the middle a little thinner than the edges because they'll spread some but the middle can't.
I don't know about "monster" tho'.
Carla, this is the recipe I use, we just call them,
2 c. brown sugar
2 c. sugar
1 c. butter
1 t. baking powder
1 t. soda
3 c. flour
1 t. vanilla
2 c. oatmeal
1 c. choc. chips
2 c. chopped nuts
2 c. rice krispies
2 c. coconut
Cream sugar and butter and add remaining ingredients. Bake at 325, time depends on size of cookies.
This is a very stiff dough and I don't remember them being really chewey. They are DH's favorite cookie.
Those "good" cookies sound really good! I'll have to try them when I get all the ingredients. Thanks for posting the recipe.
I actually found my recipe (I e-mailed it to myself years ago) but I remember changing it some and can't recall the specifics. I may just try Paula Deen's Monster cookie recipe instead which I have all the stuff for too.
The ones I make you actually use an ice cream scoop to drop the dough. The batter isn't really batter though just a bunch of stuff pressed together. I remember having to push the M&M's into the cookie a bit as they kept falling out. They are really good and chewy and different. More like a chewy granola bar in the shape of a cookie. Here's the recipe if anyone wants to try them:
Â¼ cup butter softened (added more)
Â¾ cup sugar
Â¾ cup brown sugar
1 cup pb
3 cups quick oats
1 Â¼ teas. baking soda
Â¾ cup flour
cream butter with sugar
add eggs and peanut butter
add oats one cup at a time
mix baking soda and flour then add to other ingred. Â½ at a time
mix well add 1/4 package of M&M (21oz size)Âadded more
bake at 350 for 8-10 minutes (used ice cream scoop)
