Easter Monster Cookies

Easter Monster Cookies

1 & 1/4 cup Brown Sugar
1 cup White Sugar
3 Eggs
1/2 tsp Salt
1/2 tsp Vanilla
1 & 1/2 cup Peanut Butter (I use crunchy)
1/2 cup Butter, softened
2 tsp Baking Soda
4 & 1/2 cup Quick Oats (not the instant kind)
1/2 cup Flour* (optional)
3/4 cup Spring M&M's
1/4 cup Chocolate Chips

Combine the eggs & sugars in a mixer until smooth. Add salt, vanilla, peanut butter & butter. Mix well. Add baking soda, oats & flour (optional). Add the candies & chocolate and mix carefully by hand so the M&M's don't break.

Using an ice cream scoop, drop large balls of dough on the cookie sheet. Ensure there is lots of space for cookies to spread out on the pan. Press a little dent in the dop of each with the back of the scoop and place an M&M in the centre.

Bake one pan at a time at 350F for 8-10 minutes on the middle rack. Careful not to over bake.

* these cookies will still be great without flour if you need this option, just a little less structure.
