Happy Memorial Day! My heart is thankful and proud today to be an Air Force wife. These cookies remind me a lot of my husband, I may even be sending some out to him tomorrow ;), he LOVES the combination of chocolate & peanut butter. Don't we all? It's kind of like they were made for each other. Just like Nick & I! But these cookies aren't just chocolate & peanut butter, they're also oats & m&ms. It's like an oatmeal cookie had a baby with a peanut butter cookie and that baby met a chocolate chip cookie and they had a baby. Okay that's a little bit extreme but its basically oatmeal cookie + peanut butter cookie + chocolate chip cookie + m&ms= MONSTER COOKIE! And they're awesome.
They don't take very long to come together, and you likely have most of the ingredients on hand. When they're fresh out of the oven they are BANANAS. And they're also good cooled:). Just seriously, make them. You'll be happy, and everyone you share them with will be very happy. And that oatmeal, peanut butter, chocolate chip, m&m baby will be proud! ;)

1 Stick Softened Butter
1 1/4 C. Peanut Butter
1 Tbsp. Vanilla
2 Tsp. Baking Soda

Step 2: Beat in the eggs, peanut butter, vanilla, baking soda, and salt.
Step 3: Stir in the oats, m&ms, and mini chocolate chips.
Step 4: Scoop rounded spoonfuls (I use an ice cream scoop to keep all of the cookies evenly sized) onto a lined cookie sheet.

Okay so they really aren't the prettiest cookie on the block, but trust me once you taste them you won't care.
