Soft and Chewy Monster Cookies – Deliciously thick, soft and chewy peanut butter cookies stuffed full of oats, M&Ms, and chocolate chips!
Monster cookies are peanut butter cookies that have oats, M&Ms, and chocolate chips in them. Basically ALL my favourite cookie add-ins. Today I bring you my recipe for Monster Cookies.
They are super thick, soft, and chewy, and stuffed full of those delicious add-ins – just how they should be.
These cookies are so quick and easy to throw together and bake. No mixer required, and no chilling of the dough – just mix and bake!
How to make Soft and Chewy Monster Cookies
Ingredients you’ll need:
- plain/all-purpose flour
- porridge oats
- baking powder
- baking soda
- unsalted butter
- caster/granulated sugar
- light or dark brown sugar
- large egg
- vanilla extract
- smooth peanut butter
- chocolate M&M’s
- chocolate chips
To make these cookies, simply whisk together the flour, oats, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
In a separate bowl, whisk together the butter and sugars until combined. Add the egg, vanilla, and peanut butter, and mix until combined.
Add the dry ingredients and mix until just combined, then fold in the M&Ms and chocolate chips.
Roll the dough into 1.5oz balls, place onto a baking tray lined with parchment paper or a silicone mat, and bake for 8 – 10 minutes. The cookies will be very soft, but will firm up as they cool.
Allow to cool on the baking tray for 5 – 10 minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.

NOTE: For best results, I highly recommend using the gram measurements (with a digital scale), rather than the cup measurements.
Cup measurements are simply not accurate enough, and I cannot guarantee the best results if you use them.

- loaded with peanut butter flavour
