Peanut butter, chocolate chips, m&ms- what could be better in a cookie.
They are big on taste and are monstrously big too.
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Grease a couple cookie sheets.
3 large eggs
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon corn syrup
2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
1-1/2 cups chunky peanut butter
4-1/2 cups oatmeal- I like quick cooking but regular oats are fine too.
1/2 cup flour
3/4 cup chocolate chips
3/4 cup butterscotch chips
3/4 cup m&ms- preferably mini
Combine eggs, sugars, vanilla, corn syrup, baking soda, and salt. Stir in the melted butter. Add the peanut butter, oatmeal, and flour mixing until thoroughly combined. Stir in the chips and m&ms. Let the dough rest for 30 minutes so the oatmeal can absorb some of the butter.
Resting is an important step so make sure to do this.
Drop the dough by 1/4 cupfuls onto the greased baking sheets. Flatten slightly with hand, if needed. Bake for 12 minutes until they are a light golden brown.
Cool on a rack.
If you over bake they may end up kinda crunchy.
