Monster Cookies Recipe

Monster cookies have peanut butter, oats, and chocolate chips. My quick monster cookie recipe makes soft, thick cookies without chilling the dough!   

– 1 ½ cups creamy or chunky peanut butter (that’s one full 16-ounce jar minus ¼ cup) – 2 ½ cups packed coconut sugar or 2 cups lightly packed brown sugar – ⅓ cup melted coconut oil or 5 tablespoons melted butter – 3 large egg – 2 teaspoons baking soda – 2 teaspoons vanilla extract – 2 ½ cups quick-cooking oats or old-fashioned oats (certified gluten-free if necessary) – ¾ cup bittersweet chocolate chip – ¾ cup candy-coated chocolates (like M&M’s) or additional chocolate chip – Optional: flaky sea 


Heat the oven to 350°F. For easier cleanup, line two big, rimmed baking pans with parchment or silicone mats.  


Step 1

Blend sugar, coconut oil, and peanut butter in a large bowl. Thoroughly mix with electric mixer or big spoon. 

Step 2

 Put eggs, baking soda, and vanilla in. Equally mix oatmeal and chocolate chips.Drop cookies onto prepared baking pans using an ice cream scoop or ¼ cup measuring cup.

Step 3

Cookies spread during baking, so leave several inches around each. Shape the uneven foundation into a sphere carefully.  

Step 4

BAKE 10–12 minutes for gently browned edges. Do not overbake. Transfer cookies to a cooling rack after 10 minutes. Bake six additional cookies. Flaky sea salt softly salts cookies.   

Step 5

They should cool completely before being stored in an airtight container. Some cookies keep at room temperature for days.
