Chewier Monster Cookies

    The kids love the original monster cookie recipe I posted however they were too crunchy for me, so I found this recipe and decided to give it a try.  The flavor is about the same but these have a lighter and more airy texture.
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup butter, softened
12 ounces creamy peanut butter
3 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 1/2 cups oatmeal
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 cup flour
1 cup mini chocolate chips
3/4 cup m&m's
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Cream together granulated sugar, brown sugar, butter and peanut butter.
Mix until well combined and then add one egg at-a-time to the mixture until all eggs are thoroughly incorporated.
Add vanilla and give it a good stir.
With the mixer running on low speed, add oatmeal, baking soda and flour until dough forms.
Remove bowl from mixture and using a rubber spatula incorporate chocolate chips and m&m's.
Place dough on prepared baking sheet with the help of a cookie scoop or about 1 1/2 to 2 tablespoons of dough per cookie.
Place in the oven and bake until lightly browned, about 7-9 minutes.
Enjoy with a cold glass of milk.
Chewy Monster Cookies will keep up to 1 week in your cookie jar or up to 6 weeks in an airtight container in the freezer.
