Peanut Butter Monster Cookies

If you looked at my picture and thought it looked odd, just know that my husband bought me a DSLR awhile back.  I have been... "experimenting" lately with my photos.  Everything I have to post in the next 2 weeks or so looks kind of crazy but I think I finally have it figured out!


These cookies are great big fat cookies, for those times when your chocolate cravings make you feel like a raging monster.


Also they are monster-sized.  (We're talking a small-ish monster here, not one of those full-sized giants from Harry Potter or anything. So the appropriate serving size is two instead of five.)

How healthy of us!

Peanut Butter Monster Cookies
Recipe lightly adapted from Brown Eyed Baker

-3 eggs
-1 c  white sugar
-1 c light brown sugar
-1 tsp vanilla extract
-1 tsp corn syrup
-2 tsp baking soda
-1/4 tsp salt
-1/2 cup (1 stick)  salted butter, melted
-1½ cups peanut butter, heaping
-4½ cups rolled oats
-1/2 cup all-purpose flour (lightly spooned into the cup)
-3/4 cup semisweet chocolate chunks or chips
-1 1/4 cups M&M's

In a mixer, combine the eggs, white sugar, brown sugar, vanilla, corn syrup, baking soda, and salt.

Stir in the melted butter and peanut butter.

Stir in the oats and flour.

Stir in the chocolate chips and M&Ms and let the dough rest for 30 minutes. 

Form dough into 1/4 cup sized balls and place on baking sheet. Flatten each ball with your palm (they probably won't spread at all) and stud with additional M&Ms.  Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes or until cookies are lightly golden.  Cool on a wire rack, and store in an airtight container.
