We have a tradition at our house: the Sunday Night Treat. This week's is Monster Cookies
I was given this cookie recipe when I found out that oats were no longer on the "banned" list. It is a great cookie recipe. Oats are used as the "flour" and not only is it a great mix of peanut butter and chocolate, it makes a monster batch! (The recipe yields about 9 dozen!)
Enjoy with an ice cold glass of milk for dunking!
1/2 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1 1/2 cups peanut butter
2 t. baking soda
1 t. vanilla
4 1/2 cups quick-cooking oats
1 cup chocolate chips
1 cup M&M's
Cream together butter and sugars. Add peanut butter and eggs and blend until creamy.
Mix in baking soda, vanilla, and oats.
Add chocolate chips and M&Ms.
Place on a greased cookie sheet and bake at 350 for 10 minutes. Let cool for 2 minutes before removing to wire rack.
Or if you are feeling lazy, you can make a MONSTER cookie and cut it into bars.
Spread dough onto cookie sheet and bake at 350 for 12 minutes.
Don't forget the milk!
