One of our favourite cookie recipes is the Monster Cookie. The original recipe calls for M&M's but with the fall here I wanted to make these cookies a little more festive...don't you think the yellow, orange and brown colours have fall written all over them? So we switched out the M&M's and added mini Reese's Pieces.
Here is the recipe
1 1/2 cup natural peanut butter
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup white sugar
1 cup butter, softened
3 large eggs
1 Tbsp vanialla
4 1/2 cooking oats
2 tsp baking soda
2 cups Reese's Pieces
1. Preheat oven to 350. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
2. In a large bowl, combine peanut butter, sugars and butter, mix until well combined. Mix in the eggs and vanilla. Mix in the oats and baking soda. Then stir in the Reese's Pieces.
3. Drop the cookies by heaping spoonfuls onto the cookie sheet.
4. Bake 10-12 minutes. Cool for 5 minutes on cookie sheet until cookies are set.
These cookies make a large batch so we always have extras in the freezer :) As long as you use gluten free oats these cookies are gluten free. Hope you enjoy.
