Monster M & M Cookies | RECIPE

Hey y'all -

My mom wanted me to make some monster cookies and so I went on the hunt to find a deliciously, easy recipe.  If you're unfamiliar, monster cookies are essentially oats, peanut butter, chocolate chips, and M&M candies.  YUM.  I ended up finding this recipe from Chef Saavy, and they looked freakin' delish!

The recipe and instructions are as follows:

½ cup unsalted butter, softened
1 cup light brown sugar
½ cup creamy peanut butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 whole egg
¾ cup all purpose flour
¼ teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1½ cups old fashioned oats
1 cup M & M's
½ cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy (with mixer or by hand works too.)
Add in peanut butter and mix.
Add in vanilla and egg. Mix until combined.
Combine flour, salt and baking soda in a small bowl.
Add the dry ingredients to the batter in two parts.  But do not over mix!
Fold in old fashioned oats, M & M's and chocolate chips.
Portion dough into 16-18 cookies and place on a baking sheet.
Bake cookies for 11-13 minutes or until lightly golden brown and firm on the edges.
Remove from the oven and let set for 3-4 minutes.

Literally so easy and tasty.  I highly recommend you make these cookies if you are looking for something to indulge your sweet tooth!

Happy baking!
