My version of Monster Cookies

This was for Dave:


My co-worker Dave has been talking about Monster Cookies for months. I decided I would finally make some for him. If you are not familiar with Monster Cookies they are a peanut butter, oatmeal, chocolate chip, M&M Cookies. Most monster cookies have little or no flour, but since I am a fan of chewy non-flat cookies. These cookies will please most people since they have so much in them. They are really versatile so you could swap in our out anything you please. I know Dave loved these cookies, so I hope you do too!
Monster Cookies
recipe from Baked Perfection

3 eggs

1 cup chocolate chips
2 teaspoons baking soda
3 1/2 cups quick-cooking oats
1 cup all purpose flour

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

In a large bowl, combine the eggs and sugars. Mix well. Add the salt, vanilla, peanut butter, and butter. Slowly mix in the baking soda, oatmeal, and flour. Stir in the M&M's and chocolate chips. Drop by tablespoons 2 inches apart onto the prepared cookie sheets.

Bake for 8 to 10 minutes. Let stand for 2 minutes before transferring to wire racks to cool.
