These peanut butter Monster Cookies are slightly crisp on the outside, and soft and chewy in the center. They are loaded with oats, peanut butter, M&M candies and chocolate chips and they’re completely addicting!
light brown sugar
old-fashioned rolled oats
semi-sweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Cream the butter and sugar together really well, until light and fluffy.
Add peanut butter and mix well. Add egg and vanilla and mix.
In a separate mixing bowl stir together the flour, oats, salt, baking powder and baking soda.
Add to the wet mixture and mix to combine. Stir in chocolate chips and M&M’s.
Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes, or a little longer if you make them bigger than a 1 inch cookie scoop. Don't over bake--they will look just set.
Remove them from the oven and allow them to cool on the pan for 10 minutes before removing to a wire cooling rack.
