Another completely non-diabetic friendly recipe that I make every year to gift to my family who, after 20 something years of these, consider them to be a holiday addiction. Doesn't everyone have a guilt-inducing Monster Cookie recipe tucked in their repertoire? As you can see, I make these on a mammoth scale (once a year). —Brian Coppola
Start with beating the 13 eggs in a super large mixing bowl (about a 4-5 gallon size)
Blend in order, with a sturdy wisk, the white sugar, the brown sugar, the butter, and then the vanilla
And then blend in the baking powder followed by the peanut butter
Switch to a large wooden paddle that allows for folding in and mixing large amounts, easily, and fold in the oats in 3 portions; the mixture seems more liquidy than you might like at this point, but do not worry, the other ingredients are coming and the oats have a lot of absorbing to do
fold in the remaining ingredients (nuts and candy, or whatever it is you want to add, in 3-4 portions); fold to mix completely, and let the mixture sit for about 30 minutes to evolve
Using a cookie scoop, dole out 1/4-cup scoops onto a parchment-lined jelly roll pan or other baking surface. I use a large pan and do batches of 20 at a time.
Bake for 20 minutes at 350F. Remove and cool for about 5 minutes in the pan, then remove to a rack.
