These are big, chewy, hearty, colossal cookies! The only problem is, I couldn’t stop at just one.

Consider yourself warned.

Colossal Cookies

1/2 cup butter

1 cup sugar

1 cup brown sugar

4 eggs

1 tsp vanilla

18 oz crunchy peanut butter

18 oz rolled oats

6 oz semi sweet chocolate chips

1 1/2 tsp baking soda

Optional: raisins and coconut

 

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Cream butter and sugars. Then add eggs and mix until well incorporated. Add vanilla and peanut butter.

In a separate bowl toss oats and baking soda together. Then add to peanut butter mixture.

Quickly fold in chocolate chips.

Drop by the 1/4 cup, 4″ apart and then flatten with a fork. Bake for 10-12 minutes

Cool for 1 minute before removing from the pan.

 

Option 1. You may add coconut and/or raisins when you drop in the chocolate chips. “Marian G.” says she does both, but I left them out and loved them!

Option 2. Drop by 1/8 cup, about 2.5″ apart, flatten with a fork and cook for 8-10 minutes at 375. (This is “Marian G.’s” preference)

btw…”Marian G.” gave this recipe to Grandma Joyce, she must have been a brilliant woman in the kitchen!

Vanilla’s turn!

Those crunchy peanuts will provide the best texture I could’ve imagined.

Looks like its just a bunch of peanut butter, but it is about to be soooo much better!

Toss the baking soda and the oats together in a separate bowl. This will prevent clumping.

Add the oat mixture…

Keep modest spacing. They won’t grow much at all, but when you squish them with a fork they will.

Squished!

Colossal.

What do you think coconut and raisins, add them or skip?

  1. Bonnie, I just made these cookies and they are colossal good. Love the peanut butter in them. They don’t look as pretty as yours though.

  2. I can’t wait to try these.! They look like a perfect recipe to make with kids. My only concern is that they will derail any attempts to lose weight.
