These cookies are so much fun for the kids to make them, so full of flavor and texture from the peanut butter and oat flakes, that you have to try them!
- 1 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 1 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup soft butter
- 3 large eggs
- 3/4 peanut butter
- 2 teaspoons baking soda
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 4 1/2 cups oat flakes
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup chocolate chips
- 1 cup M&M’s candies
Preheat oven to 180°C/350°F.
In a large bowl, using an electric mixer, mix at high speed the butter with granulated sugar and brown sugar until smooth. At low speed, incorporate the eggs, peanut butter, baking soda, vanilla, salt and oat flakes.
With a spatula fold in the chocolate chips.
Drop one tablespoon batter 2 inches (5 cm) apart on the prepared baking sheets. Place M&M’s candies on each cookie.
Bake for 15-20 minutes and let the cookies rest 2 minutes in the pan, than transfer on wire rack.
I just had some fun with my 6 years old daughter and made this semaphores.
