Monster Cookies

I wasn't too sure about these monster cookies as I was making them - they were super crumbly and I was not impressed with how they were holding together. But, I pushed through and started squeezing them into balls so they would stay together and then pushing them down when they were on the pan. They taste super yummy and my husband LOVED them, but I think that I will keep up the search for an easier monster cookie that will hold together with less work.

Monster Cookies
(Recipe found at via Pinterest)

1/2 cup butter, room temperature
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup white sugar
3/4 cup creamy peanut butter
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/4 cups all purpose flour
1/2 cup quick cooking oats
3/4 cup m&ms
1/4 cup chocolate chips
1/4 peanut butter chips

Preheat the oven to 350. Combine butter, brown sugar and sugar in a large bowl mixer. Add the peanut butter, stir again. Add the egg, stir, vanilla stir. Measure in the baking soda and flour and stir just until combined. Stir in the oats, m&ms, chocolate chips and peanut butter chips. Scoop using a cookie scoop or two teaspoons measuring about 2 tablespoons onto a cookie sheet. Press down gently as they do not spread on their own. Bake for 9-10 minutes but no longer. You want these to stay soft. Remove from the oven and let cool on the cookie sheet for 2-3 minutes then move to a cooling rack.
