If you want to bake these Flourless Monster Cookies, here's a list of the equipment you'll need to get started:
A stand mixer: A fancy tool to whip up the dough to perfection. If you don't have one, you can always use a hand mixer or mix by hand (just prepare to work those muscles).
Cookie scoop: The best way to make equally sized cookie dough balls. It's like an ice cream scoop, but for cookie dough. Who doesn't love a perfectly round cookie?
By using these tools, you'll be able to make the most scrumptious, chewy monster cookies ever. And let's face it, baking is more fun when you have the right tools. So, put on your apron, grab your ingredients, and get baking!
With this perfect blend of ingredients, you'll be able to create chewy, peanut buttery, oat-filled cookies that are simply irresistible.
- Creamy peanut butter: The star of the show. Go for the smooth and creamy kind for the best results.
- Granulated sugar: The sweet stuff that makes everything better.
- Brown sugar: A bit of this adds a lovely caramel flavor to the cookies.
- Large eggs: They're the glue that holds the cookies together.
- Baking soda: This is what makes the cookies rise and become fluffy.
- Salted Butter: It Balances out the sweetness and adds flavor.
- Old-fashioned oats: These give the cookies their classic oatmeal texture and nutty flavor.
- Chocolate chips: The more, the merrier! These little guys add bursts of sweetness and chocolatey goodness to every bite.
You can switch up or customize this recipe by adding some of your favorite ingredients.
For example, you can swap out the chocolate chips for mini ones or mix in some Reece's Pieces or M&Ms. You could also use crunchy peanut butter instead of the creamy kind for a different texture.
The secret to making chewy cookies is to not over-bake them. Take the monster cookies out of the oven before you think they are done!
They'll look still slightly soft and undercooked, and allow them to cool on the cookie sheet for a few minutes. Then it's time to move them to a wire rack. This will help them stay soft and chewy.
If you love cookies as much as I do, you must try this chewy monster cookie recipe. They're packed with peanut butter, oats, and sweet chocolate chips, sure to satisfy any cookie cravings. So go ahead and give this recipe a try - you won't be disappointed!
