favorite things: monster bars

monsterbars1

this is one of my favorite recipes for a sweet treat, and these photos from awhile back remind me of a fun afternoon making some.  you can make them into cookies, or my preference is as a bar.  yum!  and gluten free!

3 eggs

1c packed brown sugar

1 c sugar

1t vanilla

1 t corn syrup

1/2 c butter

1 1/2 c peanut butter

2t baking soda

4 1/2 c oats

1c choc chips

1c m&ms

preheat oven to 350 degrees.  mix all ingredients together in a large-ish bowl.  the dough gets pretty thick, so make sure to use a sturdy spoon.  i prefer using a 12×18 size pan.  monster bars are fun to share, and they bake faster in a larger pan, so you get to sample them sooner ;).  bake around 20 minutes.  they are better slightly underdone then overdone.  enjoy!
