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!
Perfect! These have got to be just like the ones I had growing up. I didn't change anything.
Great recipe, just like the ones I had as a kid. My mom used to put rice krispies in hers so instead of 4.5 cups of oats I put 3 cups of oats, and 2.5 cups of rice krispies. They were perfect!
So glad to find a recipe for these that I can actually make! (All others make so many dozen that its not been worth it for me to make for just our family to enjoy). I followed the recipe to a T and they turned out perfect! Delicious, chewy, and the perfect amount of PB flavor!
Yum Yum Yummy! These cookies were great! My kids and husband all loved them, the cookies didn't hang around long! I loved everything about them and didn't change the recipe at all, I just added peanut butter m&m's along with the plain m&m's. But what an awesome cookie!
AWESOME cookie!!! I made them almost a week ago and they are still as fresh and softy-chewy as the day I made them! I used both dark and milk chocolage m&m's - great combo. Awesome flavor, easy recipe. No need to change anything! THANK YOU - my husband says it's the best cookie I've made yet!
I did everything the same except 2cups flour and 2 1/4cups oats in stead of just using oats. I also did 1.5tsp of corn syrup. I was scared but I wanted a cookie w/ flour. I tried one and loved it but it was still warm, they are for a friends birthday. Everyone loved them! Thanks
I did not care for these at all. However, I don't think the recipe was at fault, just a personal preference. I didn't like the texture of the cookie without flour.
