I’ll never turn down a cookie. Ever. And when I tell the family that I’m making this monster cookie recipe, you better believe that they’re running to the kitchen in the instance that they hear the timer go off for the oven. This simple cookie recipe is “scary” good.

Monster cookies are not only fun to eat but they’re also super fun to make as well. This is because you feel like when you’re making them, you’re adding in a ton of random (yet delicious!) things. Oats? Check. M&M’s? Check. Chocolate Chips? Oh, yes. (and I’ve been known to throw in a handful or two extra-long the way too, because well…why not?!)

Ever since I made these Monster Cookies one time, I knew I was never turning back. They’re giant, they’re packed full of chocolate, and they’re literally perfection in a hand-held treat.
