More About This Recipe

  • Oaty, chewy, chocolatey and easy? These might just be the cookies of your dreams! Classic monster cookies are a mashup of favorite cookie ingredients — oats, chocolate chips, peanut butter and M&M’s in a yummy brown sugar base. For this recipe, which you can truly throw together on the fly when you’re craving something sweet, we used a shortcut step in the form of Betty Crocker chocolate chip cookie mix and peanut butter cookie mix. The result is a cookie that’s rich and chock-full of goodness but still perfectly tender. Pack them in a lunchbox, bring them on a hike or just grab one after dinner — there’s no bad time to enjoy a monster cookie! If you love these but have a little more time on your hands, or want to get creative, try out one (or more!) of our other monster cookie recipes.
