Why These Are The Best Monster Cookies

I’m calling these epic monster cookies for several reasons:

  • It’s worth repeating: They are LOADED with M&M’s
  • They’re somehow crunchy and chewy at the same time
  • They’re very peanut buttery
  • They’re hearty: One of these cookies is probably enough… but one more won’t hurt
  • They’re super simple to make

Recipe Notes

  • I used turbinado sugar (sugar in the raw) instead of brown sugar. You can substitute brown sugar, but they may turn out different than my batch.
  • I used corn starch in the recipe, recommended by Together As a Family blog
  • I added chocolate chips and M&M’s to the dough, and then added  bunch of M&M’s on the top of the cookies before baking: About 10 on top of each cookie

Since oven temperatures can vary, watch the cookies closely to avoid over-baking. These took about 9 minutes to bake in my oven.

Prep Time 40 minutes
Cook Time 18 minutes
Total Time 58 minutes


  • 1/2 cup butter, room temperature
  • 3/4 cup + 1 tablespoon turbinado sugar
  • 2/3 cup chunky peanut butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon corn starch
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups old fashioned oats
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • 1 1/2  cups M&M's


  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, cream butter, sugar, and peanut butter using an electric mixer. Mix until light and fluffy. Mix in egg and vanilla.
  3. Combine dry ingredients in a separate bowl. Gradually mix wet and dry ingredients together. Add oats, chocolate chips, and about half of the M&M's.
  4. Take a golf ball sized amount of dough and roll into a ball. Place on baking sheet and flatten with hand. You'll get about 8 cookies per pan. Top each cookie with 10 or so M&M's.
  5. Bake for approximately 9 minutes, until the edges are golden brown and center is barely set.
  6. Remove from oven and allow to cool for a few minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.
