Monster Cookie Bars


Monster Cookie Bars

Bob went on a camping trip with the Young Men from church last week so I sent him off with some treats for them.  These were the first batch.  All I had were 4th of July colored M&M’s so they got red, white and blue treats but I’m pretty sure that they didn’t care.  It would be a quick and easy treat for the 4th of July.

1/2 cup butter, softened

1 cup brown sugar

1/2 cup peanut butter

2 eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 3/4 cup flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon salt

1 3/4 cups quick cooking oats

3/4 cup chocolate chips

1 cup M&M’s

1  Preheat oven to 350.  Spray 9 x 13″ pan with cooking spray.

2  Beat together butter and sugar then add in peanut butter, eggs and vanilla and mix well.

3  Combine flour, baking soda and salt in a separate bowl.  Gradually add to butter mixture just until combined.  Add oats, chocolate chips and M&M’s.

4   Press into greased pan.  Top with additional M&M’s, pressing into dough slightly.

5  Bake 14 – 16 minutes, until edges are slightly browned or toothpick inserted into center comes out clean.  Let cool before cutting into bars.
