Monster PB and Oatmeal Cookies

So a few weekends ago...or maybe last weekend, my dad got this recipe from one of his friends from high school over facebook and he asked me to make them. I said yeah because oatmeal and peanut butter are just an amazing combination! Well long story short I halved the recipe and I wasn't really measuring correctly and I just went willy nilly with the ingredients and they turned out good but I also omitted the m&ms that were supposed to go in. Then, on Friday my dad tells me that his friend wants me to try them with m&ms and I'm like YEAH! because I wanted to try it again but by then I knew I wouldn't be able to handle half the recipe so I cut it to 1/3 of the recipe and added in the m&ms and by God they are really truly amazing things. (and when you read the full recipe you'll understand why i cut it to 1/3)

little uncooked dough balls :)

8 tsp baking soda (2 2/3 tsp baking soda)
18 cups oatmeal (6 cups oatmeal)
3 lbs peanut butter (not reduced fat) (1 lbs peanut butter)

1 lbs m&ms (about half of a 12oz bag of m&ms)


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F

  2. Beat eggs in a HUGE bowl.

  3. Add remaining ingredients in order (you will definitely be working with your hands...)

  4. Roll the dough into about 1 in. round balls and place on an ungreased baking sheet and spread about 1.5in apart. If you like thin and crisp cookies then you can smush them down to create 1.5 in disks.

  5. Bake for 12-15 minutes (mine came out perfect at 12 minutes)
**side note: cookies freeze well if you want to save them
