    Ok, this is a favorite at our house. These are hug and delish cookies. They have a lot of oats in them, so I consider them healthy! [​IMG]

    Monster Cookies

    1 cup peanut butter
    ½ cup butter or margarine, softened
    1 1/4 cups packed brown sugar
    1 cup sugar
    3 eggs
    2 teaspoons baking soda
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    4 cups quick-cooking oats
    1 cup M&M’s
    1 cup butterscotch chips
    1 cup salted peanuts
    2 cups all-purpose flour

    In a large mixing bowl, cream peanut butter, butter and sugars. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add baking soda and vanilla. Add oats, M&M’s, butterscotch chips and peanuts; let stand for 10 minutes. Stif in flour (the dough will be crumbly). Shape 1/4 cupfuls into balls. Place on greased baking sheets, about nine cookies per sheet. Gently flatten cookies. Bake @ 325 for 15-18 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Remove to wire racks. Yield: about 2 ½ dozen.

    I make those exact cookies without the butterscotch. They are a hit!! I'm going to try the butterscotch.

    We have also used white chips instead of butterscotch.
    My favorite is to use peanut M&M's and skip the peanuts. It takes the whole medium size bag, minus the handful you know you are going to eat when you open the bag! [​IMG]
