You didn’t think I was going to let today slip by without some sugar, did you?! In this case sugar =ing chunky little peanut butter cookies studded with vibrantly colored peanut m&ms and thick shards of chopped chocolate. Oh, and they’re flourless! Yay for a healthy(ish) cookie.
The chocolate chunks and peanut butter m&ms add an explosion of color and texture that luxurious and delightful! Just the way all cookies should be 😉
(Flourless) Peanut Butter M&M Chocolate Chunk Cookies – Baker by Nature
2 cups salted creamy peanut butter, no sugar added
2 cups sugar
1 cup brown sugar
2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup quick cook oats
2 ounces semi-sweet chocolate, chopped into chunks
1 1/2 cups peanut m&ms
1 tablespoon butter, melted
Preheat oven to 350 degrees (F).
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper; set aside.
In a small bowl, whisk together the eggs and vanilla; set aside.
Place the peanut butter in a large bowl and pour in the egg-vanilla mixture. Mix with your hands (for reals!) until combined.
Add the sugar, and mix well. Fold in chocolate chunks & 1 cup of the m&ms.
Scoop out the dough with a spoon and roll it into balls with your hands. The size of the scoops of dough is up to you (the dough doesn’t spread much). Place the balls 2 inches apart on the baking sheet. Press the balls flat and add a few more m&ms on top if you want.
Bake for about 10 minutes, or until the center looks as light and baked as the edges. Cool completely before removing from the cookie sheet with a spatula. They will take at least an hour to cool, and remain VERY soft for a few hours.
