I got this recipe from the BRT at my school, which she brought as a treat for “Family Day.” These cookies were the highlight of my day. For the children and the family that came, they probably had a wonderful time… but for the teacher, this is a very stressful time. So I take great pleasure in the little things, like having the kids being able to sit still while I do lessons even though their parents are being distracting in the background. Or having five minutes to escape 11 hyper little boys to take a bathroom break. Or tasting this chewy, chocolate concoctions.
- 1 1/2 cups Creamy Peanut Butter
- 1 cup packed Light Brown Sugar
- 1 cup granulated White Sugar
- 1 stick Unsalted Butter, softened
- 3 large Eggs
- 1 tablespoon Vanilla Extract
- 4 1/2 cups Quick Cooking Oats
- 2 teaspoons Baking Soda
- 1 cup Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips
- 1 cup M&M’s
Step 1: Pre-heat oven to 350°F.
Step 2: In a large bowl, combine the peanut butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar and butter. Mix until well combined.
Step 3: Mix in the eggs and vanilla extract.
Step 4: Mix in the oats and baking soda.
Step 5: Stir in the chips and M&M’s.
Step 6: Drop the cookies by big spoonfuls on the cookie sheets that are lined with parchment paper.
Step 7: Bake 10 to 12 minutes. Cool on cookie sheets until cookies are set because they will be too gooey and fall apart. Then, transfer to wire racks to finish cooling.
Step 8: Eat and Enjoy!
