Monster Cookies

I have to do something different!

I don’t want to report on the winter weather and its horrific winter-ness.

A good friend had suggested a while ago that I blog my Monster Cookie recipe. (Thank you, Cathy.)

I finally remembered to take pictures when I made them last week.

These are basically my idea of “healthy” breakfast food (oatmeal).  I mean….they are sorta granola bar-ish. 


1/2 cup margarine

1 cup white sugar

1 cup + 2 Tbsp brown sugar

3 eggs

18 oz peanut butter (I  use crunchy)

2 tsp vanilla

1 Tbsp light syrup

4 1/2 cups oats

2 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp salt

1 cup M&Ms (Sample first, of course. Have to check for freshness….)

6 0z chocolate chips (I use mini chips)

Bake at 350 degrees, for 12-15 min.  Let set up on cookie sheet ~1 minute before removing.

Note:  This recipe does not call for flour.

    Well, at least they have some candy in them to counteract all that healthy oatmeal. 🙂

    Look at that! You still had M&Ms left to put in the cookies! 😉
