Oatmeal M&M Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars

Preheat oven to 350 levels.  Slash a strip a parchment paper to in good shape the base of a 9×13 pan, but hold in excess of 2 of the edges.  Spray pan with non-stick spray and then put parchment in, pressing paper to spray to assistance it adhere. (Alternately you could line with foil and flippantly spray with cooking spray.)  Established aside.

Area oats in your blender and pulse just a few occasions to scarcely break up oats.  You really don’t want to make oat flour! They should really nevertheless seem like oats, just damaged up a little into scaled-down parts. Set these apart.

Combine flour, baking soda, and salt in a bowl and frivolously whisk to mix.  Set apart.

In a mixing bowl or stand mixer, melted butter, brown sugar, and white sugar.  Insert eggs, one particular at a time, stirring amongst every addition, and vanilla.  Insert flour mixture in a few additions until finally integrated.

Stir in oats and chocolate chips until eventually just blended.  *I like to just sprinkle my M&M’s on the prime of the dough, but if you have a significant bag, truly feel no cost to toss a little handful into the dough, or substitute M&M’s for a portion of your chocolate chips.

Push dough into geared up pan and push flat.  Sprinkle a handful of M&M’s on top and increase sprinkles if you desire.

Bake for about 25-30 minutes. Clear away from oven when edges are golden brown and centre seems set, but nonetheless gentle. The heart need to jiggle a bit when you transfer the pan.  They will be very doughy in the middle!  Unless you are serving a little bit heat about ice cream, awesome completely to space temperature.  Notice: It’s completely normal for the centre to sink down decreased than the edges, once cooled! I imagine these are finest when they’ve cooled for quite a few hrs and I like to place them in the fridge to chill just before cutting, even.  They are fantastic to make ahead!
