A recipe for the classic cookies that isn't on such a "monster" of a scale.

Top Review by Chef AngieW

these are excellent! Exactly what I was looking for in a monster cookie! I used half butter and half shortening. I had mini m&ms so I used them. I only had 8 1/2 cups of oatmeal (I doubled the recipe) so to make up for the 1/2 cup I threw in some oat bran and toasted wheat germ. You can't even tell it is in there and I feel better about my family eating them. I forgot that monster cookies don't have flour in them but you even tell. Also, I used part old fashioned oats and quick oats which I think give the cookies a good chewy texture. I'm sure they won't last long around my house!
