Day 8 of the 10 Days of Christmas Cookies and Bars is a twist on the Monster Cookie. It has most of the traditional flavors, and the orignal texture, but this monster cookie is made without the peanut butter.
I love the concept of the monster cookie. A little of this, a little of that, all rolled up and baked in the oven. The only problem is the peanut butter that is a very important ingredient. As many readers know, I despise peanut butter. I won’t eat it plain, I won’t eat it in anything, I HATE it.
Monster Cookies (without the peanut butter) (adapted from Brown Eyed Baker)
1 egg white
1 c. light brown sugar
1 c. sugar
1 t. vanilla
1 t. light corn syrup
2 t. baking soda
1 t. salt
¾ c. butter (1 ½ sticks), melted
1 c. applesauce
4 ½ c. rolled oats
1 c. flour
½ c. chocolate chips
½ c. butterscotch chips
½ c. white chocolate chips
½ c. M & M’s
1. Preheat the oven 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
3. Slowly add in the oats and flour. Mix in the chocolate chips, butterscotch chips, white chocolate chips, and M & M’s. Set aside for 10 minutes.
4. Drop the dough by heaping tablespoon onto the parchment lined baking sheets, pressing to flatten the dough. Bake for 13-15 minutes or until the cookies are starting to brown. Let cool for two minutes then transfer to a wire rack to finish cooling.
Note-To make the more traditional monster cookies omit the applesauce, add 1 cup of creamy peanut butter, and cut the flour in half. Bake for 10-12 minutes.
