From King Arthur Flour, this recipe makes large oatmeal peanut butter cookies packed with candy.
Ingredients
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 cup brown sugar (200 grams)
  • 1 cup granulated sugar (185 grams)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon corn syrup
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted (114 grams)
  • 1 1/2 cup peanut butter (380 grams)
  • 4 1/2 cups rolled oats (360 grams)
  • 1/2 cup unbleached all purpose flour (65 grams)
  • 3/4 cup chocolate chips -- Use more if desired
  • 3/4 peanut butterscotch chips (optional) -- Use more if desired
  • 3/4 cup mini M&Ms (I used the M&M baking bits)
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line two or three baking sheets with parchment or nonstick foil.
  2. In a mixing bowl, stir or whisk together the eggs, sugars, vanilla, corn syrup, baking soda and salt. Stir in melted butter and peanut butter, followed by oats and flour.
  3. Stir in all the chips and candy. Let dough rest for 30 minutes.
  4. Drop the dough by 1/4 cupfuls onto baking sheets. Use fingers to flatten the cookies slightly, then bake them for 12 minutes or until they're a light golden brown. Remove from the oven and cool on a rack.
  5. Makes 26 large cookies
Notes
For crunchier cookies, try baking at 325 for 18 to 20 minutes.
