Monster Cowboy Cookies
Servings – 30 Prep Time – 10 Minutes Cook Time – 11 Minutes Ingredients:
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter softened
2/3 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup chunky peanut butter
1 large egg room temperature
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup old fashioned rolled oats
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup raisins or dried cranberries
1/2 cup walnuts, chopped
3/4 cup M&M’S
Preheat oven to 350°F. Cover a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a medium bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
In the bowl of a stand mixer with the paddle attachment or hand mixer cream the butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar until light and fluffy. Blend in the peanut butter until smooth.
Reduce the mixer to low and add the egg and the vanilla extract. Mix just until combined.
Add the flour mixture in several intervals mixing just until combined. Scrap down the bowl and mix as needed.
Remove the bowl from the mixer and stir in the rolled oats, raisins or dried cranberries, walnuts, semi-sweet chocolate chips, and the M&M’S.
Using a 1 1/2 tablespoon cookie scoop drop the dough by rounded tablespoons onto a parchment covered baking sheet. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until very lightly browned.
Let the cookies cool for 5 minutes on the baking sheet before carefully moving to cool on wire racks.
