- 3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened softened
- 3/4 cup peanut butter
- 3/4 cup loosely packed light brown sugar
- 1/4 cup granulated sugar
- 1 large egg
- 1 large egg yolk
- 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/2 cup old-fashioned oats
- 1/4 cup cornstarch
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
- 6 ounces (about 1 cup) semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 6 ounces (about 1 cup) dark chocolate m&m's
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F, and line baking sheets with parchment paper.
In a large bowl with an electric mixer, cream the butter, peanut butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar together until pale and fluffy (3 to 5 minutes on medium-high speed).
Stir in the egg, egg yolk, and vanilla until well-blended (about 1 minute on medium speed).
Add the flour, oats, cornstarch, baking soda, and salt, and mix in until incorporated (about 30 seconds to a minute on low speed).
Stir in the chocolate chips and m&m's, and scoop 1.5-tablespoon balls onto the prepared baking sheets.
Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, or until set around the edges, slightly golden on the bottoms, and still soft in the centers.
