I've seen (and pinned) so many monster cookie recipes lately, but have never made them myself. I love oat based cookies but only like just the right peanut butter cookie so I wasn't sure if I would be a true lover of these cookies. However, these cookies, warm out of the oven with a big glass of milk were amazing (but crumbly...cooling the cookies is what keeps them together).
This recipe makes 3-4 dozen cookies.
3 large eggs
1 1/4 C brown sugar
1 C sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 C creamy peanut butter
1/2 C butter, softened
1 C M&M's
1 C semi-sweet chocolate chips
2 tsp baking soda
4 1/2 C oats
Preheat the oven to 350.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Cream together the eggs and sugars.
Add the salt, peanut butter, and butter.
Mix in the M&M's, chocolate chips, baking soda, and oats.
Roll the cookie dough into small balls (mine were 1-2 TBSP) and place them a couple inches apart on the pan.
Bake for 7-10 minutes - you definitely don't want to over bake these cookies so take them out when the edges just start to turn golden and they are starting to set.
Let them cool on the pan (a very important step to having non-crumbled cookies) for 1-2 minutes and them carefully place them on a wire rack to finish cooling.
Store any leftovers in an airtight container.
