I am a total cookie snob and these are excellent ..I used mini m&ms and used about 3/4 Cup in stead of the 1/2 cup.    I always use old fashioned oats - I think it provides a better texture as well as dark brown sugar instead of light brown sugar. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I took someone's advice from the reviews and used a 1/2 cup less of oats. They were perfect and chewy! Take them out as soon as the cookies look dry. Let stand and cool for 10 minutes - my tip. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I thought this recipe was well crafted, Though I think maybe a bit less oats and it'll be perfect item not reviewed by moderator and published
Delicious! While I'm no great baker, I had no issue with the cookies spreading or staying in balls. I did not refrigerate the dough, I rolled the dough into balls, and I used silicone baking mats per the directions. I know that over-greasing baking sheets can cause cookies to spread too much, so I suggest using parchment paper or baking mats. item not reviewed by moderator and published
We followed the recipe. They did not turn out. They were yucky cookie balls. Such a bummer. item not reviewed by moderator and published
These are really excellent cookies! I had no problem with spreading and didn't refrigerate the dough. They stay soft which is so great! item not reviewed by moderator and published
These were good cookies:) I followed the recipe exactly except for the raisins (just don't care for them). Just make sure you refrigerate for at least an hour before baking. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is my go to recipe for Monster Cookies! Love them! I do cut down on the sugar and refrigerate the dough for 2 hrs before baking. item not reviewed by moderator and published
These were very good. I'm giving it four stars only because it is too sweet for our taste. Mine didn't flatten as much as others did, probably because we used old-fashioned oatmeal instead of quick cooking oatmeal (after dropping them onto the baking sheet, I flattened them with the back of the spatula prior to baking- if we didn't they would have baked into cake-pop like cookies). I love the chewy texture from the rolled oats, the slight peanut buttery taste and the dark chocolate chips, absolutely delicious! The next time we bake these, we are going to reduce the amount of sugar by 1/4 cup and increase the amount of peanut butter. Thank you for a yummy recipe. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Made these for years now. Once we did, my family was hooked. I use only chocolate chips - a mix of milk chocolate, white chocolate, and peanut butter chips (no raisins or candies). Also, double up on the peanut butter. Just my little spin, but they are the biggest hit ever. We make multiple batches so people can take them home too......per their request previous to Xmas. Merry Christmas !!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
BEst cookies ever, makes a bunch!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Thought this five star recipe would be the perfect recipe for our Christmas cookie, but they did not turn out. Followed the recipe to the 'T' minus the parchment paper. Cookies just melted to a flat sheet of goop, on both air bake pans and 'old school' cookie sheets. Curious as to what may have gone wrong? item not reviewed by moderator and published
I don't know what happened!!! I'm a very experienced baker and chef... I followed the recipe exactly... room temp soft butter, room temp eggs, didn't over mix. The first batch was raw at 10 minutes, 2nd batch I cooked 12 minutes and were still raw... I then tried just one sheet at a time and still turned out gooey after 13 minutes!! This has NEVER happened to me so I don't know what's wrong with this recipe soooo disappointing!! Were going to be Christmas cookies but guess it'll be Ina's double chocolate cookies and truffles which always come out great!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
These cookies are always the best and everyone that eats them tells me how great they are. I do leave out the M&Ms and just put extra chocolate chips. They are super easy to make....no need for a mixer if the butter is softened. I love love love them! item not reviewed by moderator and published

Most excellent. I substituted coconut oil for butter, reduced the sugar by 1/4 cup, and used half regular oatmeal and half quick oats. So good! I can't believe there isn't any flour in this! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Awesome recipe! Lightly crispy on the outside and moist and chewy inside. These are our favorite monster cookies and baking them with my 8 year-old granddaughter every visit together has become a tradition. We sometimes add about 1/2 cup coconut which is very good, too. Paula, thank you for this and all of the wonderful recipes you share! You have given our family many wonderful dishes and added so much joy to our happy times together...we love you! item not reviewed by moderator and published

Wonderful, wonderful! My 5 year old loves these cookies!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Very tasty! Would make these again. Helpful tip for people who are looking to make these; once you take the cookies out of the oven; take the cookies off the pan! Otherwise, the cookies will stick, and it will save you from using parchment paper. item not reviewed by moderator and published

I made without the candy, just doubled the chic chips. They were phenomenal! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This recipe is great! Very easy to make, and you can have lots of fun experimenting with add ins. You can take out peanut butter and add peanut m&m's or add walnuts, shredded coconut, etc. If it's too thin, it could be the butter, make sure it's softened and not melted, make's a huge difference. You could also try adding extra oats, it won't hurt it. I cooked mine for the recommended time and let them cool for about ten minutes and they stiffened up just fine. : item not reviewed by moderator and published
This recipe is just what I was looking for. I'm a college student and I try to find recipes in which I can replicate easily. The only change I made is that I ommitted extra toppings, the only sweets in which I included were mini semi-sweet chocolate chips. I have already made these cookies three times and plan to make them again. They are great for one who is looking for a post exercise snack. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I love this recipe, it is a favorite go to and love substituting different add ins, usually a half a cup of coconut... Love Rice Krispies in cookies too. Mine usually stay pretty chunky, perhaps if yours ar spreading it is an ingredient issue or try chilling. Love that they are so chewy in the middle! Thanks Paula, my children are so happy when I make these?... Kisses! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I followed all of the directions and the cookies melted like a piece of crap. I now have to scrub all of the residue off of the TWO PANS that I used. HORRIBLE RECIPE!!!!!!! Thanks for NOTHING Paula! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This cookie is REALLY GOOD AND EASY TO MAKE!!! I used peanut butter chips instead of rasins!!! CAME OUT GREAT!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Update!! I make these so often with a few changes; I increase the vanilla to 1 tsp, and add two cups of rice krispies cereal for some added crunch. I stole that from the pioneer woman's monster cookies. Jiff peanut butter makes a difference too. I add a little extra of that too: don't over bake, 7 min in my oven at 350 item not reviewed by moderator and published
I thought these were really easy to make and taste delicious! I did find that I had to bake mine much longer. More around 14 minutes but once I got the timing right they turned out great. Mine didn't spread much at all so they were very small but still tasty! item not reviewed by moderator and published
very dry not much flavor item not reviewed by moderator and published
I've made this cookies multiple times, and they've always come out great! HOWEVER, I made them today, and for the first time ever, they came out flat as a pancake. In the past, I have always mixed them by hand b/c I thought the chunky ingredients might be a little too much for my stand mixer. On a whim today, I decided to try the stand mixer. It did fine, but my cookies aren't! Soooo, for the people who've had issues with the cookies coming out flat, I've figured out your problem-- you are over-mixing them! Forget your mixer for this batch, mix by hand, and enjoy perfect cookies. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Monster cookies were a huge hit at my house!! I doubled the recipe & added chocolate chips & mini chocolate chips & 3 c. m&m's. I didnt soften my butter and I used 3 c peanut butter which is only 1 1/2c if not doubling. If you add to much p. butter thhis will make your cookies spread. My cookies didnt spread at all. Very good recipe. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I'm not a raisin lover but a huge chocolate one! So instead of using raisins i put in extra chocolate! : item not reviewed by moderator and published
Good cookies. I would add more oats and raisins next time. Parchment paper is a must not an option ; otherwise they would stick to your pan. Like other reviewers i have to agree that they can be a little mushy. Two problems with that are always leave your butter out to soften( don't microwave and don't use to much dough( just a leveled out cookie scoop full. Even with that i still think a little bit more oats would be good. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I've made them at home and for work. They are always a hit. I've had to start making 2 batches at a time because 1 batch won't last in the house! Sometimes I mix it up by adding mini m&ms and add extra chocolate chips. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Delicious! I used old fashioned oats instead of quick cooking, left out the raisins and added chopped pecans. I had to cook a minute longer but they were yummy and were gobbled up. Will make these again, maybe add coconut. item not reviewed by moderator and published
My fiancé had these the other day at work and begged me to make them for him. I was worried about other reviews saying these spread out too much, but like a previous reviewer I'm guessing it was failing to see that a jar of PB is 16 oz and the recipe only calls for 12. I added a tad extra chocolate chips since I didn't do raisins and used dark brown sugar. I actually was able to roll the cookies into uniform balls before baking. Baked for 9 minutes and let them cool completely on the pan. I didnt use parchment paper and these came off super easy. Cookies turned out perfectly chewy in the center and crispy on the edges. Wonderful! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made these cookies for the first time today and they turned out great! And my 3 and 6 year old loved them! I was worried at first reading all the comments about them being flat but I have to say those people did not follow the recipe correctly because mine look exactly like the picture. The smallest jar of peanut butter is 16 oz not 12 so when adding the peanut butter make sure you check the ounces. Also I added 1 cup of raisens, chocolate chips and m&ms. I put the batter in the fridge for about an hour to stiffen a little before baking. I definitely plan on making these again! I love that oatmeal and raisins are in them, next time I'm adding nuts as well. item not reviewed by moderator and published
These cookies didn't turn out...baking for 10 min left me with a gooey mess and I followed the recipe exactly and didn't over soften butter. I added time and they looked good but as soon as I set down the pan they spread out like saucers. Disappointed with this recipe. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I cater so I know a good cookie. This isn't it. Very disappointed. item not reviewed by moderator and published
One of our favorite cookie recipes. item not reviewed by moderator and published
LOVE THESE! My son isn't a cookie lover, but he loves these, too. I substituted coconut for raisins and upped it to 1/2 cup. I also added an extra 1/4 cup of chocolate candies. I think the recipe benefits from sitting a bit before going onto the cookie sheets. It gives the oats a bit longer to hold the mixture together. YUM! item not reviewed by moderator and published
THESE ARE FANTASTIC! We have some food allergies/sensitivities in our house and I made these with a few substitutions Gluten Free Quick Oats, Almond Butter, omitted the raisins, and they were RIDICULOUSLY GOOD! This is NOT normally the case using GF substitutions. WOW! Just goes to show you that everything's better with a little Paula Deen! item not reviewed by moderator and published

These cookies are wonderful! I've made them several times and don't deviate from the recipe except to bake them 3-4 minutes longer than the recipe states. Highly recommended! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Wow! I thought these were fabulous. I made these for my underweight son because they are so high calorie and I like that they have no flour in them. I followed the recipe exactly other than the fact that I added 1/2 tsp of almond oil extract. ...and so glad I did!!! What a great addition to this recipe. Used natural, unsweetened peanut butter. Great cookie! My husband loves them too. Lastly, I only cooked 7 minutes. After letting them cool on the pan, they were perfectly chewy. item not reviewed by moderator and published
What else can I say but Delicious!!!.. One thing is for sure.. have a strong arm to mix it but it is worth it. Easy to make.. With and without the raisins.. =P item not reviewed by moderator and published

Love these! Have made them several times. Today I made a discovery though - I made the first batch with only 3 cups of oats as that was l had at that moment. Following batches were made with the remaining oats. Loved the first batch the best, and will adjust as such in the future. item not reviewed by moderator and published

This is a great recipe! Although I didn't discover it through Paula - I discovered it through the Readers Digest "Cookies - 1001 Mouthwatering Recipes from around the World".

SOOO GOOD!! I made these last year for New Years and boy they were a hit! I made up 3 Big containers of them and only had a few left by the end of the night! These have become my favorite cookies ever sense! If you want something everyone will love, these are it!! I did not cook them as long as it said to, as I like my cookies a little softer and my stove over cooks things if im not careful. So, if you don't want them soft, then take out 3 to 4 mins before. item not reviewed by moderator and published

The monster cookie reminds me of my childhood. One of my family's favorite cookies! I love the different variations you can do with the mix-ins. They are perfect for shipping in care packages.

This is a great recipe because it makes so many cookies that there's plenty to share with family and friends. I also added 1/2 c.

My 8 year old daughter and I both have celiac disease. My daughter wanted M&M Cookies and I had some gluten free flour on hand, so I figured I would give it a try. I was THRILLED to find this recipe doesn't call for flour at all and is gluten free. WOOHOO! We made the cookies and the whole family loved them. I am pretty sure that this will be my daughter's "birthday treat" for school this year. It's so nice to find GOOD cookies that she and I can enjoy. These were incredible. The only complaint .... they disappeared awfully fast. : item not reviewed by moderator and published
Amazing!!! Im not a good baker ;- Im amazing at cooking but baking Im handicapped it seems lol. I followed the recipe exactly except for one change (im not a fan of m&m's in my cookies so I exchanged them with snickers minis, I chopped them to the size of m&ms and used the same portion of 1/4 cup EXCELLENT COOKIES. If I cant mess these up no one can. I do say make sure you make them very small because if not the center is so unstable its hard to keep its form. Very good flavor my kids (6 and 2 LOVED them. My husband also took them to work to brag... That felt great because as I said Im not the baker even though I try ;-D. item not reviewed by moderator and published
BEST COOKIES EVER!!! Someone made these for me and my husband and I don't think he even got to try one because I ate every single one. I couldn't keep my hands out of the jar! I will DEFINITELY make these often. item not reviewed by moderator and published
O My Stars!!!! I made these into bars. I used the parchment paper and lined the cake pan and pressed the dough into it.

Than You! item not reviewed by moderator and published
SO GREAT! I can't stop eating these, even after I put them in the freezer! I added Reese's Pieces and butterscotch chips. I also made a batch with protein powder and chia seeds so I have some justification eating them after I run or bike. Great hiking food too! item not reviewed by moderator and published
"Amazing." That's how my 17 yr old son at camp described them (makes a great cookie to send in a care package. I added 1/2 cup walnuts but could not taste them. Next time will add more chocolate chips and M&Ms. I used a 1 1/2" scoop and made 4 dozen. Did not need to flatten them. However one sheet that was on a higher rack in the oven cooked faster and were more rounded. Look forward to making them again soon! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Delicious. My nephews and niece loved them! So did my sister and mother, and myself. This was a fun activity to make. The kids rolled them into balls and I popped them in the oven. Then we threw a cookie party. Even though it had ingredients that the kids didn't like...two didn't like oatmeal...one didn't like peanut butter...they ended up loving them anyway! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Just okay in my opinion. The texture is a bit off-putting, and the flavor is fairly bland. My eight-year old daughter, who usually loves all cookies, took one bite and gave it back. Will not make again. item not reviewed by moderator and published

It makes me cry just thinking about how some people have lived without tasting these cookies. They are soooooo good! The ingredient list sounds kind of hefty and overkill with so many random ingredients but seriously include them all! I make these cookies all the time, and everyone who has them loves them so much and is always asking me to make them again. I soon found that they taste and look much better when you flatten the cookies down quite a bit (with either the bottom of a cup or just your hand) before putting them in the oven. Delicious! Thanks Paula! item not reviewed by moderator and published

This has become a family favorite, really rich but really yummy! Super easy to make, so give it a try! item not reviewed by moderator and published
These are not so good. The peanut butter flavor is weak and the chocolate chips + m&m's actually overwhelm the cookie with chocolate (and I love chocolate). I followed the directions exactly and they didn't flatten out like some of the other reviewers mention, they look more or less like a normal cookie. Since there is no flour in the recipe - only oats - the texture is like a Clif Bar, not great for a cookie :( I was disappointed and I'm not sure why it has so many positive reviews, skip this one! item not reviewed by moderator and published
These cookies sound amazing! But I don't want to make the whole batch at one time. Could I freeze some of the dough for later? item not reviewed by moderator and published
I love these cookies! My family could not stop eating them! We did one batch that we rolled into balls and put on the pan and another that we flattened because the others did not seem to spread out very well. I would suggest flattening them out if you want larger cookies, but be sure to make sure they do not overcook like mine did. Overall, great recipe!!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I have now made this recipe twice once with creamy peanut butter and once with extra crunchy peanut butter. both were great. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Very Good, Directions out of Order? Baked longer. These cookies pleased my 4 and 7 yr old children as well as Mom and Dad. I have made them 2 times so far. I followed the directions exactly the first time but on my 2nd baking I changed the order of the additions to facilitate easier mixing. For example: Creamed sugars and butter, then added eggs 1 at a time and mixed well. Added salt, baking soda and vanilla. Mix well. Then Peanut Butter mixed well. Followed by Oatmeal 1 C at a time. Last, the raisins, chocolate chips, and candies. Also liked them a little more well done. Baked at 360 for 12 min. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I love that these cookies are made with just using my stand mixer bowl where most cookies require blend dry ingredients...blend wet ingredients and combine, not to mention they are fabulous to boot! I followed the recipe exactly but omitted the raisins. Will make again soon! item not reviewed by moderator and published
My new favorite cookie! I substituted granola for half of the oats. I added a good amount of chocolate chips and M&Ms, the more chocolate, the better! I also added in some dried blueberries, strawberries and cherries along with the raisins. These cookies are addictive! Since I added in so much sweet stuff, I reduced the sugar by half. I've got a serious sweet tooth and these came out perfect! I don't see how anyone could give this recipe 1 star! If it didn't turn out right, then you measured wrong or have old ingredients... item not reviewed by moderator and published
These cookies were easy to make and so delicious. I added a few more chocolate candies and chocolate chips and raisins. Our kids loved them!

Good recipe for monster cookies. If you don't like it, either you tried the wrong recipe (What were you expecting top speeder?? If you wanted plain old choc. chip cookies, than that's what you should have made! Monster cookies are not choc. chip cookies, obviously. Did you read through the ingredients first?!? And your comment at the end was unecessary- are you over 12? Just because Monster cookies aren't your cup of tea, you don't need to critisize the person who posted the recipe.or you didn't follow the recipe correctly and that's your own fault. If you follow the recipe as it says, your finished product will be a yummy "monster cookie." item not reviewed by moderator and published

I love monster cookies so I'm sad yours failed. Be sure to not over mix, do not grease your cookie sheets, and if your kitchen is warm pop the doe in the frig to cool it before cooking. (Be sure it's butter not margarine). Here is a link to some Oats info I found. -Pam item not reviewed by moderator and published
When I use 1 1/2 c of Peanut Butter they are usually so soft they fall apart. I cook them for 15 min instead of 10 minutes...then the bottoms are dark. I use parchment paper too! I wonder why they are so gooey?? Maybe I should use less peanut butter? item not reviewed by moderator and published
