My go-to chocolate chip cookie recipe loaded with chocolate chunks and topped with M&M's. It's almost impossible to stop eating them right from the oven!

3/4cup (1 1/2 sticks)unsalted butterat room temperature
2 1/4cupsall-purpose flour
1cupquick (1-minute) oats(NOT instant oats)
1-2cupsregular M&M's(NOT M&M's baking bits)
Preheat oven to 375°F. Adjust rack to center of oven.
In a stand mixer fitted with paddle attachment, beat together the butter and sugars until light and fluffy (about 1 minute). Add the eggs, one at a time, beating after each addition. Mix in the vanilla. Turn the mixer to high speed and beat for 3 minutes.
In a separate medium bowl, whisk together the flour, oats, baking soda and salt. Gradually add to the wet ingredients and mix on low speed until ALMOST combined -- It is good to still see some dry flour so you know you're not over mixing.
Fold in the chocolate chips and chocolate chunks. Do not over mix.
Scoop two tablespoon sized dough balls onto large cookie sheet, placing 2 inches apart. I use my medium cookie dough scoop to make this step even easier.
Place about 6-8 M&M's on top of each dough ball. Bake for 10 minutes, rotating pan halfway through baking. Cool cookies on baking sheet for 8 minutes before transferring to cooling rack. Repeat with remaining dough.
