Soft-Baked Monster Cookies

 While looking for my standard monster cookies recipe
I came across this soft-baked version which sounded tasty. 
It's described as a peanut butter cookie with oats rather than an oatmeal cookie with peanut butter. Because it bakes likes a traditional peanut butter cookie, you need to flatten them before baking.

Soft-Baked Monster Cookies

1/2 c  butter
1/2 c brown sugar
3/4 c peanut butter
1 egg
1 t vanilla extract
1/2 t baking soda
1  1/4 c flour
1/2 c oats
3/4 c m&m's
1/2 c chocolate chips

Cream the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy 
Mix in the peanut butter, egg, and vanilla. 

Add in the baking soda and flour. Do not overmix. 
Fold in the oats, m&m's, and chocolate chips. 
If the dough is very soft and unmanageable by hand, chill the dough for 30 minutes before rolling.
Scoop out balls of dough (about 2 T) onto prepared baking sheet. 
Press with fork or back of spoon to flatten. 
Bake for 9-10 minutes. Do not over bake. The cookies will appear undone.  
Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet before transferring to a wire rack. Cookies will firm up as they cool.
