Monster Cookies

These are huge, fun cookies. You can put whatever extras you like in them! My mom made them for us years back and we just loved them!


There isn’t that much to do in Saudi except shop and shop some more at the amazing malls. When my son was around the age of 14 he wanted to play sports. So, he found out about an organization in Riyadh that gives kids the opportunity to play Basketball, Baseball and a few other sports. He signed up, played and later coached. There is always a team mom who organizes snacks and as you can imagine it is very hot, so lots of water, drinks, fruit and snacks are needed.

My girls loved making these cookies and the kids were always thrilled! You can make them any size but generally we make them the size of hmmmm the palm of your hand! This recipe makes quite a few depending on how large you make them, but when making for the team we at least doubled the below batch!!


1 cup softened butter

3/4 cup shortening

1 1/2 cups brown sugar

1 1/2 cups white sugar

1/2 cup peanut butter

1 tsp. salt

1 tsp. baking soda

3 eggs

4 level cups flour

3 cups oatmeal (uncooked of course)

2 packages M-M candy

1 package mini semi sweet chocolate chips( regular size are fine as well)


Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Mix sugars, butter and shortening in mixer very well until fluffy.

Add eggs, continue mixing. Add peanut butter and mix well.

Add salt and soda, mix and then add flour. Make sure dough is well mixed.

Mix oatmeal in (not with mixer) and add chocolate. Mix in.


Scoop up some dough (maybe 3 spoons) and put on baking sheet. Flatten dough out lightly into a circle. Do not work with dough too much or it might stick, just flatten out a bit.


Let bake for 15 minutes or until done.


Delicious and fun!!
