Thick and Chunky Monster Cookies

 

Monster cookies have become a favorite in our house these days.  There are always discussions about how many someone ate and how many are remaining. These cookies really are a wonderful treat.  Loaded with M&M’s, chocolate chips, peanut butter, butterscotch, and oats.  The oats make them healthy, right? Well, I’m going with “yes”.

See! Look at that baby! So amazing! We use the mini M&M’s because we prefer the smaller crunch but if you prefer the regular size go for it. I don’t mind.

Ingredients
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup old-fashioned oats
  • 1 cup mini M&M's candies
  • 1/2 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup butterscotch chips
Instructions
  1. In the bowl of a stand mixer, cream together the butter and peanut butter until smooth.
  2. Add the brown sugar & white sugar, creaming together until fluffy.
  3. Add in the eggs and vanilla, beating well.
  4. In a separate bowl, mix the baking soda, salt, cornstarch, and flour, until combined.
  5. Then add the dry ingredient mixture to the wet ingredients.
  6. Stir in the oats, M&M's, chocolate chips, and butterscotch until just combined.

  7. Cover and refrigerate dough for at least 2 hours, up to overnight. (we refrigerate overnight)
  8. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment or silicone liners.
  9. Drop heaping 1/4 cup-sized balls of dough onto the baking sheets, about 2-3" apart.
  10. Bake for approximately 12-14 minutes, rotating pans halfway through baking time to ensure even cooking. Cookies may appear slightly undone in the center; this is normal and they'll continue to set as they cool.
  11. Cool on the baking sheet for at least 5 minutes then transfer to racks.
