MONSTER COOKIE RECIPE

This monster cookie recipe is a favorite at our house. We have learned to substitute the chocolate chips and the m&ms for Whole Foods versions with fewer chemicals, food dyes, and yucky stuff.

I adapted this recipe from the original that I used many years ago by using natural versions of the chocolate chips and M&Ms from Whole Foods without all the yucky stuff. I also swapped out the sugary peanut butter with an only-peanut version with no added sugar. I also adjusted the recipe so that I could use an entire jar of peanut butter so it was less cleanup than making a mess with an extra spatula and measuring cup. And, removed some of the sugar and Karo corn syrup.  Oh, and I also made them smaller when I make the minis and we love those because really, these are too big!

WARNING: Do not try to double in a 5 quart Kitchenaid.
