Although these oatmeal cookies have a monstrous amount of ingredients that incorporate a ton of flavor, this recipe is titled Monster Cookies for the enormous amount of cookies it yields.

Monster cookies - although they looking nothing like monsters, the title is for the monstrous amount it yields.

I can’t believe it has been two years since we moved from Southern California to the deep South of Mississippi.  Time flies.

Before we left SoCal, our dear friend (who was like another “Nana” for Judah) wrote down this recipe for me of which she is pretty famous within her family and community.  She made them a couple of times while we lived there, and each time I found myself grabbing for one or two more.

This same friend also taught me that I can use cut up paper bags from the grocery store to cool my cookies instead of wax paper.  Because with the enormous amount of cookies this makes, two little cooling racks do not cut it.

These cookies look nothing like monsters, so why the fancy title?  The original recipe yields a monstrous proportion (15 dozen) and puts claim to its name.  I scaled it down to one-third of the amount for the average household consumption, but left ingredient amounts for the original in the recipe notes.

If you do make the original 15 dozen, you will need a very big bowl and a lot of elbow grease.  😉

  1. These look SO good! I love everything in these cookies. I will be making a batch soon!

  2. These look delicious!! I will definitely be giving them a try! Thanks for sharing 🙂

  3. Is there any flour in this recipe?

  4. These look amazing!! Glad I’m going to the grocery store tomorrow because these ingredients are going on my list.

  5. Just noticed the “no flour”– terrific! Must try!

  6. I need a good peanut butter chocolate chip oatmeal cookie recipe. I wish there were still big church gatherings like they used to have on Sunday. The 15 dozen would be perfection.

  7. I’ve been making a similar recipe from Paula Deen and my guys love them. I usually swap out some of the chocolate chips for M & M and/or Reece’s Pieces.

  8. These are really good. I made them today. If you use a gluten free brand of oatmeal they could actually be considered gluten-free cookies which I have a lot of request for.

  9. Hi i would love to make this for my sons birthday.. one question.. how long can it be stored? Thank you 😉

  10. These look amazing, than you !
