Cookie Monster Cookies

So I have admitted several times that I am not the baker in the house and that my daughter loves to bake all kinds of cookies, cakes, etc. However, today I was all set to make some really healthy oat bran/flax meal muffins with applesauce, carrots and golden raisins in them, and had my shopping list all ready for the store in search of my ingredients. But then my daughter said she wrote down a friend’s recipe for these AWESOME cookies and she just HAD to make them today instead. So there I am at the store buying all these healthy items, along with butter, chocolate chips, brown sugar, and M&Ms, among other things.

I let her have at it in the kitchen today. She was disappointed with her first batch as she made the dough balls way too big and didn’t cook them long enough. But after I told her to use less dough for each cookie and to cook them longer, she’s now happy with them.

This recipe made a ton of cookies! We filled up one large Tupperware container, then another smaller one (in photo).

The Recipe

I don’t know the origin of this recipe at all, so I’m including a photo of her handwritten one to show that I didn’t steal it somewhere. Let’s just say it was “adapted” from a recipe. Well I guess it was as she did have to switch out some of the ingredients.

I’m not a big cookie eater, so I haven’t tasted them. I guess you could call these somewhat healthy since they have almost an entire container of oatmeal in them. I’ll let you be the judge. Happy Snacking!

Cookie Monster Cookies

3 eggs
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup white sugar
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon white Kayro syrup (we had dark on hand and used that instead)
1 1/3 cups creamy peanut butter (we only had Chunky)
1 1/2 cups butter
4 1/2 cups quick-cooking oatmeal
1/3 cup chocolate chips (we used dark chocolate ones)
1/2 cup M&Ms

Cream eggs and sugars. Add baking soda, syrup, butter, and peanut butter. Then mix in the oatmeal, chocolate chips, and M&Ms. Blend well. Bake at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes.

    I just gained 5 pounds just by reading the recipe for those delicious looking cookies! How is a certified cookie monster such as myself supposed to lose weight by wet suit season (forget trying to get into a bathing suit)! 😉 ??? 🙂
