  • Yields: 32


1/2 cup (1 stick) plus 6 Tablespoons butter, softened

3/4 cup brown sugar

1/2 cup sugar

3 eggs

1/2 cup creamy peanut butter

1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 1/2 cups all purpose flour

2 1/2 cups oatmeal

1 cup chocolate M&M's {use red and green for the holidays}

1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips {or try dark chocolate}

1 cup pretzels {smaller ones work best}


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a large mixing bowl stir together the baking soda and flour and set aside.

In a large mixing bowl, beat together butter and sugars until creamy. Add eggs and vanilla, continue to beat well until everything is mixed together. Slowly mix in the peanut butter.

Add the flour mixture until combined. Add the oats on low and mix together.

Add the M&Ms, chocolate chips and pretzels and mix {I like to add the pretzels and use the mixer to quickly break the pieces up}.

Drop dough by rounded tablespoons onto a nonstick cookie sheet.

Bake 10-12 minutes (11 for me) or until the edges are golden brown.

Remove from the oven and cool. Store in airtight container.
