(As a side note, this recipe doesn't have any flour. I think that makes it gluten free!)
This recipe comes from allrecipes.com and is listed as Monster Cookies. I cut the original recipe in half and had more than enough cookies (about 2 dozen giant cookies!). Here is the halved recipe for ya.
1 cup plus 5 Tbs. packed brown sugar
1 cup white sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract
2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 cup butter
1 1/3 cups peanut butter (I used crunchy, but creamy works too!)
4 1/2 cups rolled oats
1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips (I added a cup of white chocolate chips as well because I'm crazy like that)
-Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease cookie sheets.
-Cream butter and peanut butter together. Add the sugars and stir until well mixed.
-Add eggs one at a time, then add vanilla.
-Mix oatmeal and baking soda separately, then stir into batter.
-Add chocolate chips last.
-Drop by heaping teaspoons onto cookie sheets. Bake for 12-15 minutes.
(I made them slightly bigger than golf balls and put 5 on a sheet. Then I pressed them down slightly before baking them and they were big and beautiful!)
Just 5 on a sheet makes big and beautiful cookies!
My husband and brother-in-law are particular about their cookies, and they would not stop raving about these ones. Seriously. They are the best cookies ever. I'm not joking. Do yourself a favor and go make some.
