Monster No-Flour Cookie Bars

My niece, Nancy MaWhinney, made these awesome cookie bars for a family dinner. Everyone loved them and the plus for me was that they were gluten free.

Monster No-Flour Cookie Bars

2/3 Cup packed brown sugar

2/3 cup white sugar

5 Tablespoons butter, softened

1 Cup peanut butter

2 large eggs

2 teaspoon vanilla extract

3 cups old-fashioned oatmeal, divided

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 bag, 10 oz of mini m&m’s (1 ½ cups) or regular sized m&m’s

2/3 cup mini chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare a 13x9 pan by lining it with parchment paper or spray with cooking spray.

In a large mixing bowl combine brown sugar, white sugar, peanut butter, and butter. Beat until pale in color and fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla extract. Mix to combine.

Place 1 cup of the oatmeal into a blender or food processor and process until a flour texture.

To the butter mixture add the blended oats, the 2 cups of the oatmeal, and the baking soda. Mix to combine. Add the m&m’s and the chocolate chips, reserving about a ¼ cup of each to sprinkle on the top.

Spread into the prepared pan. It will be very thick. Sprinkle the reserved m&m’s and chocolate chips on top. Press them into the dough.

Bake for 15 minutes. The edges will be lightly browned, and the middle will still look pale, but that is what you want. Let cool for at least 45 minutes to let the bars firm up.
