How to Make Monster Cookies
- Preheat your oven to 375F degrees.
- In a mixing bowl, cream together the brown sugar, white sugar, and butter until they’re thoroughly combined and smooth.
- Add in the eggs and then mix them until they’re well incorporated.
- Add in the flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and oats. Mix until combined.
- Add in the M&M’s, chocolate chips, and the white chocolate chips, stirring to combine.
- Place the cookie dough onto greased or parchment lined baking sheets in 2 inch sized scoops. You should be able to fit about 8 to a tray.
- Bake them for about 10 minutes or until the edges of the cookies are slightly browned and the centers are still chewy.
- Allow the cookies to cool for 10 minutes on the sheet before eating. This helps them to finish the cooking process and solidify so they don’t fall apart in your hands.
