These cookies contain oats, peanut butter and chocolate. They are big in size, but can be made smaller. The kids will gobble them up.
- 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 1 cup plus 2 tbsp. firmly packed light brown sugar
- 3 large eggs
- 2 cups peanut butter
- 3/4 tsp. light corn syrup
- 1/4 tsp. vanilla extract
- 4 1/2 cups uncooked regular oats
- 2 tsp. baking soda
- 1/4 tsp. salt
- 1 cup candy-coated milk chocolate chips
- 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
Beat butter and sugars at medium speed with electric mixer until light and fluffy. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition. Add peanut butter, corn syrup, and vanilla, beating until blended. Stir together oats, soda, and salt; gradually add to butter mixture, beating well. Stir in candy and chocolate chips. (Dough will be stiff.)
Pack dough into a 1/4-cup measure. Drop dough 4 inches apart onto prepared baking sheets. Lightly press each cookie into a 3 1/2-inch circle with fingertips.
Bake at 350 for 12 minutes (centers of cookies will be slightly soft). Cool slightly on baking sheets; remove to wire racks to cool completely (about 30 minutes). Makes 2 1/2 dozen.
If you make the smaller cookies, I baked them less time (about 11 minutes).
