Not Your Mama’s Cookies

These are my absolute favorite cookies—and I’m not a huge fan of cookies! LoverMan and I made pumpkin cookies a few entries back. While those were okay… these are far and away SO much better.

I must admit though, that I’ve also heard these cookies called “monster cookies”. However, I’ve never had a cookie quite like this. Bonus: they’re super easy to make. You don’t need 7 different bowls! Just one. SO, I finally weaseled the recipe and decided the love needed to be share. Without further adieu, I present to you…

Not Your Mama’s Cookies

Here are all your supplies! 🙂

First, cream butter & the sugars. Add vanilla & eggs. Mix it all up nice and good.

Look at that beautiful KitchenAid mixer!!

Add flour, baking soda, baking powder & salt. Combine that with the mixture.

We don't want normal rolled oats.... we want this fine, ground powder.

Now, for the important parts: finely grind the oats. A traditional food processor, magic bullet, ninja shredder, coffee grinder… pick your poison. I used our ninja…the appliance…not LoverMan 😉


Add those bad boys into the cookie gloop. Time for the fun!! Fold in the chocolate chips and mini M&Ms. This part is up to you: how much of each you desire. I prefer a little more of our multi-colored friends than boring (albeit delicious) chocolate chips.


Scoop of the dough—I use a tablespoon to measure. Drop them on our phenomenal parchment paper. Put them in the oven and bake for 10-15 minutes. (I cooked them for 12.)


Perfect. Let them set on the paper for a few minutes. Then shovel them onto a cookie rack to finish cooling.

Even when they’re cooled, the middle with be moist and delicious. I will warn you now that if you decide to share, you’ll need to make a double or triple batch so there’s enough to go around!
