Nutella does it… AGAIN!

There are some people who don’t think that oatmeal belongs in cookies. I on the other hand, think they make the cookies. This recipe makes almost 4 dozen GIANT cookies, so consider yourself warned. I used dark chocolate chips and mini m&ms because that’s what I had in the cupboard, but you could use any combination of mix-ins you like. Nuts. Chocolate: white, dark, semi-sweet. Heck, you could even make a mixture of dried fruit and chocolate.

I love this recipe because I added Nutella and used both smooth and creamy peanut butters. So the cookie is crispy around the edges, but the center is chewy. They pack well and the batter stores very nicely until you’re ready to use it.

Nutella Monster Cookies

  • 1 stick soft butter
  • 1 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  •  3 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup smooth peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup crunchy peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup Nutella
  • 2 tsp. baking soda
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup wheat germ
  • 4 cups rolled oats
  • 1 1/2 cups mix-ins: chocolate, candy, dried fruit, nuts
Cream together the butter, sugars and eggs. Then, blend in the peanut butters and nutella. Stir in the rest of the ingredients and mix the candy in as evenly as you can. Scoop the dough onto a lined cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes.

  1. Ok, so you had me at “Nutella”… 🙂 These beauties look pretty sturdy. Do you think they would mail well? I’m thinking of gifting my nephews with regular care packages, and am gathering promising recipes.

    1. They are really sturdy… I put these in our cookie tins for the neighbors and they didn’t crumble or anything while I was packing. Also, considering a 3 year old helped with the packing and delivery, I was impressed 🙂
