This is by far our families most used cookie recipe. This is the recipe my Mom made for me growing up and nearly the only cookies I make now for my family. This recipe is so easy and the cookies are so delicious. You can customize them a little by switching up the add ins too if you want.
These are a must have for traveling, camping or for a quick snack too. They are a hearty semi-healthy cookie that I know you will love too!
Monster Cookie Recipe
3 egg whites
2 cups brown sugar
2 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup oil ( I usually use about 1 cup of applesauce instead. I also used about a cup of greek yogurt when I was out of applesauce too with great results.)
1 1/2 cups peanut butter
4 1/2 cups oatmeal ( I use the old fashioned oats)
1 cup chocolate chips
I always add butterscotch chips to mine as well as the chocolate chips. Also craisens if I have them. I have also recently been adding pumpkin seeds. And M&M's are always a favorite to add as well.
Directions: Mix egg whites, brown sugar, vanilla, baking soda, oil (or applesauce/greek yogurt) & peanut butter. Stir until smooth. The stir in the oatmeal.
Now add chocolate chips and any other add-ins you would like.
The trick to a moist sticky cookie is the batter should be pretty sticky looking. Not dry and crumbly. If you feel it is too dry add more applesauce or yogurt.
Scoop with a cookie scoop or a small spoon and drop the dough onto your cookie sheet. You can shape them a little, but don't press and compact them. Bake at 350 degrees for 7 minutes.
7 minutes is just about perfect. You should see a tiny bit of browning on the tops but they will still look a big doughy. Once cool they will set up nicely.
Be prepared for these to go quickly! Enjoy!
