We had a garage sale yesterday, so I decided to bake some things to sell… These monster cookies have always been one of my favorites!
Unfortunately, the sale was pretty poorly attended, but that does mean we still have some goodies left over! :o) You won’t hear me complain about that!
Oh, and yesterday was Bjorn’s 3-month birthday. Can you believe he’s 3 months old already?? I know I can’t!!!
Happy Birthday, sweet boy! We love you!
- 1 cup butter, softened
- 2 1/2 cups (1lb) creamy peanut butter
- 2 cups sugar
- 2 1/3 cups (1lb) firmly packed brown sugar
- 6 large eggs
- 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
- 4 teaspoons baking soda
- 9 cups old fashioned rolled oats
- 1 cup packed sweetened flaked coconut
- 1 1/4 cups chocolate chips
- 1 1/4 cups m&ms
Preheat your oven to 325ºF.
Cream together the butter, peanut butter and sugars. Beat in the eggs, vanilla & baking soda until well blended.
Stir in the rest of the ingredients... In a large bowl with your hands if your mixer can't handle the load!
Scoop the dough onto parchment lined cookie sheets, and flatten with a fork dipped in water. Bake for 10-12 minutes, until the cookies are just set and light golden brown around the edges.
Store these (all cookies, really!) in the freezer for the best results. If they don't all disappear the first day, that is! :o)
