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!
These are delicious! I used a whole bag of choc chips and a whole bag of m&m's. This makes it hard to keep the cookie formed with so many chips but it is so worth it. I used rolled oats and added about an extra cup to get it to the right consistency. I would highly recommend using your stand mixer for these cookies. It makes quick work of the mixing. Use the mixer for the chocolate chips but mix the m&m's in by hand or they will break apart. Terrific recipe!
These were very good, but a pain to make! I froze half the batch so I can't wait to be able to just pop them in the oven without all of the hassle again :) I decided to replace half of the M&M's with Reese's Pieces and am glad I did. I personally liked the taste of the Reese's Pieces in the cookie better than the M&M's, but that is just my personal preference. Thanks for posting the recipe it is really yummy!
