Meet the ultimate cookie. It has just about everything a person could wish for in a cookie. If you love peanut butter, oatmeal, chocolate chips and M&M’s.. well, this cookie is for you.

It’s thick, chewy -thanks to the oatmeal- but with that crisp peanut butter cookie exterior. And it doesn’t stop there. I like to use crunchy peanut butter as suppose to creamy, just so the cookies have even more texture.

To Make These Monster Cookies You Will Need:

  • old fashioned rolled oats
  • unbleached all-purpose flour
  • whole wheat flour
  • baking soda
  • kosher salt
  • unsalted butter
  • crunchy peanut butter
  • dark brown sugar
  • granulated sugar
  • eggs
  • vanilla
  • M&M candies
  • milk chocolate chips

In a bowl, measure and add 2-1/2 cup old fashioned oats, 1 cup unbleached all-purpose flour, 1/2 cup whole wheat flour, 2 teaspoons baking soda and 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt. Stir to combine and set off to the side.

Next in the bowl of your stand mixer, fitted with the paddle attachment, measure and add 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, 1 cup crunchy peanut butter and 3/4 cup each of dark brown sugar and granulated sugar. Mix until combined and fluffy.

Next add 1 egg at a time, mixing well after each addition. With the second egg, add in 1 teaspoon vanilla extract.

Add half of the flour/oat mixture and mix until just combined. Then add the remaining, stopping when just combined.

Measure and add in 1 cup milk chocolate chips

Lastly, add in 2-1/2 cups M&M’s and mix by hand using a spatula.

Using a 3 tablespoons scoop, measure out 3 tablespoons of cookie dough and place onto a parchment lined rimmed, metal baking sheet.

Bake on the middle rack of your preheated 350° oven for 12 to 14 minutes.

Transfer to a wire rack to cool…
