Oatmeal Peanut Butter M&M Cookies

Peanut Butter M&M Cookies
If you are like me, you spend your free time trying new recipes and methods and reading cookbooks.  When ever I am disappointed with a new recipe my husband always asks, "Why didn't you make your old recipe?"   It's a fair question...only us cooks know the answer and I suppose it's different for all of us.  Is it the never ending quest for the most delicious food and new and different amazing recipes?   Is it the possibility of finding something even better?  I think we would all agree, in the end it's the desire to create something delicious and share it with the people we love.  So this recipe was created after one of those moments, trying something new, but disappointing, and making it into something I wanted to make again and again.  These fun cookies will disappear before your eyes with a group of kids in the room.     

2 cups white flour
¼ cup wheat flour
1 ½ cups quick oats
½ teaspoon salt
¾ teaspoon baking soda
1 ½ cups brown sugar
½ cup sugar
½ cup peanut butter
1 cup butter
2 eggs
2 cups chocolate chips or M&Ms

In bowl of electric mixer, cream butter, sugars and peanut butter until fluffy.  Add eggs and vanilla and beat until combined.  Stir flours, oats, salt and baking soda together and add to butter mixture, mix until just combined.  Stir in 1/2 cup chocolate chips or ½ cup M&Ms.  Roll into golf ball sized dough balls and place on cookie sheet. Decorate tops of dough balls with remaining M&Ms or chocolate chips.  Bake at 350 degrees for 13 minutes...( and save some for the kids!)
