Peanut Butter Oatmeal M&M Cookies



These cookies are quick and easy, and best of all taste great! I usually use whatever I have on hand to add to the dough. In case any of you are wondering if I forgot to put flour on the ingredient list, these are flour-less cookies. Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

Peanut Butter Oatmeal M&M Cookies

Ingredients:

1¼ c light brown sugar, packed

1 c granulated sugar

1 1/3 c creamy peanut butter

8 T unsalted butter, at room temperature

3 eggs

2 t baking soda

½ t vanilla extract

½ t salt

4½ c quick-cooking oatmeal

1¼ c M&Ms (peanut taste great too!) or substitute Chocolate Chips

½ cup chocolate chips

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 350˚ F. Line baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats.

Combine the sugars, peanut butter and butter in the bowl of an electric mixer. Beat on medium-high speed until blended. Mix in the eggs one at a time, scraping down the bowl as needed. Blend in the baking soda, vanilla, and salt. With the mixer on low speed, mix in the oatmeal just until incorporated. Fold in the pretzel M&Ms, chocolate chips.

Drop heaping tablespoons of dough (I used a medium-size dough scoop) onto the prepared baking sheets. Bake 8-11 minutes, until light golden and just set, being careful not to overbake. Let cool on the baking sheets 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely. Store in an airtight container.
