It’s time for Tim and I to finally meet our neighbors. What better way then to introduce ourselves with baked goods. I found this amazing Monster Cookie recipe from Sally’s Baking Addiction and made a fresh batch.
These cookies are peanut buttery, with lots of chocolate and softer than your average monster cookie.
Seriously - these might be my new favorite go to monster cookie recipe. I LOVE THEM!
(Recipe inspired from here)
1/2 C. salted butter, room temperature
1/2 C. light brown sugar
1/4 C. sugar
3/4 C. creamy peanut butter
1 large egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 and 1/4 C. all purpose flour
1/2 C. quick oats*
3/4 C. M&Ms
1/2 C. semi-sweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line baking sheet with baking mat.
In a large mixing bowl, mix together the butter, brown sugar and sugar together on medium speed, about 3 minutes. Mix in the peanut butter, egg, and vanilla (in that order). Slowly mix in the baking soda and flour. Don’t overmix the ingredients. Fold in the quick oats, M&Ms, and chocolate chips with spatula.
Use medium cookie scooper (about 2 Tbsp of dough per cookie) and scoop onto prepared baking sheet (12 per sheet). Bake for 9 minutes. The cookies will appear undone. Slightly press down the baked cookies with the back of a spoon.
Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 10 minutes before transferring to a wire rack. Cookies will firm up as they cool.
Store cookies covered at room temperature for up to 1 week. Cookies freeze well.
