Step by Step Instructions
The first thing you'll want to do is heat the flour to 160°F. You can do this by microwaving it for about a minute, or placing it in a pan in the oven at 350°F for about 7 minutes. Let it cool and then break up any clumps with a spoon.
STEP ONE (Picture 1 above) - Cream together the butter, peanut butter, sugars, milk and vanilla really well in a medium bowl.
STEP TWO (Picture 2 above) - Sift the heat-treated flour into the wet ingredients and mix it in really well, along with the cinnamon and salt. If it's still too dry at this point, add a little more milk.
STEP THREE (Picture 3 above) - Mix the oats, mini M&Ms and mini chocolate chips into the cookie dough.
Tips For Success
TIP #1 - Don't ignore the heat treatment! Getting sick from raw cookie dough might be rare, but it's better to be safe! You have to make sure the flour reaches at least 160°F to kill any potential bacteria. It's a quick extra step that may save you from a case of food poisoning.
TIP #2 - Make cookie dough bites! Roll the dough into balls and dip them in tempered chocolate for a chocolate-covered cookie dough balls. Or, spread the cookie dough across the bottom of a container, freeze it, and slice them into bars.
Substitutions & Variations
- Crunchy peanut butter can be used instead of creamy, but I don't recommend using the natural, oily peanut butters.
- If you don't have mini M&Ms or chocolate chips, feel free to use regular sized ones.
- Quick oats can be used in place of old-fashioned oats (rolled oats).
