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
adapted from Sally's Baking Addiction
1/2 c butter
1/2 c brown sugar
3/4 c peanut butter
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
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.
