Now that school is out my kids eat All. The. Time! Are your kids like that too? I will literally feed them breakfast and within minutes they are telling me they need a snack. And then 10 minutes after that they are asking me when lunch is. My grocery bill definitely goes up in the summer when all the kids are home all day. Luckily, I have some go to snacks that I like to make them and some of them they can even make themselves. With some supervision of course.  We love to make these mini chocolate chip muffins , oatmeal chocolate chip bread, or monster cookies are always a favorite. And I can’t forget about the most requested treat from my kids; these oatmeal chocolate chip peanut butter bars.

It’s no secret that my house is full of monster cookie lovers. The most popular recipe on the blog are these {no flour} monster cookie bars and then we have the best monster cookies, a {no flour} triple peanut butter version of the monster cookie bars and then these monster cookie magic bars, and one of my favorites is this {no flour, no egg} monster cookie dough cheeseball dip.

I told you we love them 🙂 Monster cookies are full of all the good stuff in life; peanut butter, oats, chocolate, and mini m&m’s. I have a stock supply of mini m&m’s in my pantry…. kind of embarrassing but I use them all the time!

Ingredients

    monster cookie dough
  • 1/2 cup butter , softened
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups quick oats
  • 3/4 cup mini M&M's
  • topping
  • 1 1/4 cups milk chocolate chips
  • 3 tablespoons heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup mini m&m's

Instructions

  • Line an 8x8 baking dish with tin foil or parchment paper.
  • In a mixing bowl, combine butter, brown sugar, and sugar. Beat together with a hand mixer until combined.
  • Add peanut butter and mix until blended.
  • Add in flour and vanilla extract, mix until combined.
  • Add oats and m&m's and stir until combined.
  • Press into prepared pan.
  • To make the topping: in a microwave safe bowl melt together chocolate and heavy cream, in 30 second increments stirring after each. Mine took about 2 minutes.
  • Once smooth pour over cookie dough. Sprinkle with remaining M&M's.
  • Refrigerate for 1-2 hours. Cut into pieces and eat!

Notes

Lining the pan with parchment paper or tin foil makes these really easy to lift out of the pan and cut into pieces.

You want to store these in the fridge. Eat cold straight from the fridge or let it sit out a few minutes for a softer and creamier bar. I love these both ways.

Thank you for a great recipe that is easy to throw together.
